Common Questions and Answers about Anxiety therapy plans


531005 tn?1286515532 Hypnosis isn't quick like that -- it takes a long time, like any therapy. I did it and liked it, but it didn't work for my panic attacks. There are no guarantees. But the person I saw had expertise in hypnosis. Keep in mind that most psychiatrists, especially those seen through health plans, don't do therapy, they just dispense drugs (and they often know very little about those).
Avatar f tn You have a chronic anxiety problem. This is what anxiety is like -- if you avoid doing things you stop doing things and if you do things you get nervous about it. I'd suggest getting into therapy with a psychologist who specializes in the treatment of anxiety (most don't) and learn some relaxation techniques in the meantime until you figure out if you can learn to think differently, such as exercise and meditation.
Avatar f tn Try seeking out a therapist who is well versed in CBT (cognitive behavioral therapy). That kind of therapy is very helpful for anxiety and panic. You did the right thing by seeking help, don't give up because you were brushed off or didn't find the first therapist as helpful as you expected. We all get annoyed with cheerful people, especially when we're miserable...but therapists try to keep a positive attitude.
Avatar f tn I learn to ease my anxiety levels. Control them.. but my question here is. Even though I have managed my anxiety. Ever since my anxiety I been sick n sick n sick.. im soo sick. Im sick n tired of everything now. I miss my old me.. 2013 hasn't been so good to me. :( never experience a year of sickness. I always scared of dying.
Avatar m tn The usual treatment consists of a multi-modal approach usually involving social intervention (as play dates or child-centered activities), therapy (as art or play) and if required, medication. The best therapy for anxiety is CBT - cognitive behavioural therapy but most psychologists will not treat clients as young a seven years of age. In reality the intervention and therapy are completed by the parents as the "doctors" give you ideas and plans on how to help your child.
Avatar f tn I had a great all natural experience. If you have a high pain tolerance try to go without any drugs. Anything you take is likely to transfer to the baby too.... Research if there are any risks in that. Good Luck! All natural is the most empowering thing I've ever experienced and I was so happy to have a wide awake alert healthy baby!
2863077 tn?1436670789 What are some of your plans for after having your baby? I plan on making my husband buy me a foot long sub from Subway and a 44 oz coke LOL. Since becoming pregnant my husband wont let me eat subs or drink coke.. he says it makes him worry?!
Avatar m tn I felt my mental state starting to worsen at the start of the year and have had a terrible time with anxiety, depression and stress, I am currently on propronanlol and quietiapine to help with these symptoms. Felt these we're helping for a while but recently have felt more and more down, due to being in social situations where can't drink with friends, do things I used to do easily, etc.
1763313 tn?1313878457 We have no control over what happens as you have learned. No one goes out and plans on getting in a car accident or plans on having a fatal embolism so we have to let it go and just remind ourselves like you said, "focus on today and have a positive outlook on life again." We only have one, so we have to make it the best it can be. If you do wake up with anxiety in the morning, try this breathing exercise for maybe 5 minutes.
Avatar f tn I want to get back into therapy and NOT be on medication again. Just wondering if a Psychologist or Psychiatrist would be better.
Avatar m tn How does therapy help anxiety? Is that really any different than talking to a friend or family member?
3547166 tn?1347814000 I'm not sure when it will start but I am eventually going to have to go to therapy for my Anxiety and Depression. I've never gone to therapy before. What is it like? The thought scares me a little. I would appreciate any input.
1842266 tn?1318860459 well i am presently in therapy for panic disorder and I take meds and do therapy it depends on the individual. Depends on how severe your anxiety may in fact be. Some people have to use both meds and therapy-like myself. But don't think about anyone else situation besides yours. You are different and your triggers are different. Go to it and if you realise that it is not working I am certain your therapist will realise it and then probably choose another course of treatment.
Avatar f tn I guess this answers the question I asked in your first post. Yes, therapy makes us nervous. It's supposed to -- if the therapist specializes in anxiety treatment, you will be pushed gently to face the things you're afraid of so you can learn to stop thinking fearful thoughts. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. But it's always uncomfortable, as you're there to work on what's making you uncomfortable outside the office.
Avatar f tn Sounds like you're a candidate for some talk therapy and some relaxation techniques such as meditation. Since you're functioning at such a high level still I don't think medication is a necessity yet, and until your life is so degraded you can't function anymore should it be thought to be a necessity. If it does get to that point, the medication and the psychiatrists will still be there.
336415 tn?1212359542 hello everyone has anyone tried any therapy for your anxiety? if so does it work? i really want to get my life back to normal!
Avatar m tn m a 20 year old college student who has suffered with many of the symptoms of depression, ADD, social anxiety disorder, borderline personality disorder and, in many cases, general anxiety for most of my life. I was able to manage pretty well emotionally and in school throughout high school and for my first year and a half of college.

Avatar f tn this time, but the person I am using has worked with anxiety ridden patients in hospitals, is working on her PhD, and teaches at a local college with issues that relate to me. Personally, I have only had one appointment with her so far, but the main thing is I feel comfortable with her, and I can see that she genuinely cares, and even though I am struggling right now, I am going to give it some time.
Avatar f tn What are your plans?
693413 tn?1233732272 I need mental health coverage, I seek therapy once a week for anxiety and depression and I need RX coverage, these meds are VERY expensive. I also need coverage for my skin, due to my acne meds. I a desperate, therapy and meds are too expensive out of my own pocket. Any info would help!
Avatar f tn I am currently 26 years old, and have been diagnosed with depression and anxiety. I was prescribed the anti depressant Celexa. Now, right now I have no plans of becoming pregnant, but I really do want to within the next 5 years. However, I am aware that I can not take Celexa while trying to conceive or during pregnancy. Does anyone know what my options will be when I want to conceive? Will I have to be weened off of the medicine, and stay off of it for the full 9 months?
Avatar m tn Are you in talk therapy? Drugs don't cure, they just treat symptoms. They probably almost never get rid of all of one's depression or anxiety, but can help with a considerable amount of it.
Avatar f tn After spending a year with severe general anxiety (constant shaking, heart palpitations, inability to concentrate, unable to enjoy life and general miserableness), I started therapy and (reluctantly at first) Zoloft. I've now been on Zoloft for a year (100mg) and doing group therapy for about the same amount of time. The difference this year has made has been huge!
Avatar f tn Talk things out, write your worries out and make plans on what to do, ask your dr. for natural anxiety relief. I hear yoga also helps. A good support system is key!
Avatar f tn These can improve mood and relieve anxiety short-term making them a useful tool in therapy. Antidepressants on the other hand, like SSRI's require a minimum of 6 months of daily use.
