by the way, I've just found my answer now and reading it made me think: you need to be very aware because [url=https://pharmacyreviews.md/forum/depression-and-antidepressants/31-all-experiences-with-antidepressant-drugs]Ativan[/url] really can be dangerous. better seek a doctor who would agree prescribing it to you and who would tell you HOW to take it!

I totally agree with ferris1 saying that you need some professional help. dealing with anxiety is definitely not easy and sometimes even with professional help you are getting no better. but don't forget that anxiety can evolve so it is better to be treated at an initial stage. i also agree with ferris saying that you need to connect with another human being because the best medicine for anxiety is laughter. your doctor should explain you all of this. however, there are some severer cases when "naturally" you can't get any help and you need to go to medicines like for example Ativan https://pharmacyreviews.md/ativan or there are many others. I personally think that you should start by talking to your doctor, after that he should tell you the best "natural" ways to get out of anxiety and if nothing helps then it might be a good idea to start on meds. i know that there are a lot of people who hate meds, and they do have reasons, but sometimes that's the last resort. not sure whether this would help or not, but i know what's that to live in anxiety and I really want to help with whatever I can.

The best way to help your anxiety over your mother's challenges is to seek professional help so you can verbally and personally connect with another human being. Trying online help will perhaps end in more misunderstandings because you will not get the inflections of a counselor and feedback with emotions tied to comments. Get in a group at a church or retirement community or library. Try other options which include human contact...

Your mom may not understand what you're going through unless you get people who are on your side to sit with you as you have a serious talk with your mom about your disorder. From what you described, it sounds to me like you're probably doing the right thing by doing her a favor, because handing off responsibilities to others is sometimes the right thing to do. Caregiving is not for everyone, and I can say that sometimes if you do what you're just not cut out to do, it can lead to abuse against the one you're caring for. You don't want that because you're better than that!

Agree with everything said so I hope you follow through. I've been reading your posts over time and I feel your internal torture of sorts. It reminded me of how I was at one point in my life, so please know this can be overcome, but it requires consistent commitment on your part first. You must take that step and be responsible to help yourself. It's not an easy process and I think you must know that to be true. When you fall, start again. Again not easy, but doable. Google anxietycentre as they have some great support out there. I believe there's a subscription, like $30 for 6 months but worth its weight in gold. I found a counselor located in Canada and received phone therapy that way for a while. Not everyone can do that, I know, but it was perfect for me. I really do want you well. God bless you....

I agree with Llbllb. I had a thyroid condition and could hardly ride in a car because of having anxiety and panic. Also, check your vitamin B levels while you're at it.

If you havent already pleease seek medical advice plus get a full thyroid panel test. Ive been amazed at how stress can contribute to poor thyroid health and anxiety disorders. Good luck.

I would just google exactly what you said: anxiety disorder support. You may have to try several out to find the one you click with.

I hope you are getting enough sleep and eating well. Be kind to yourself. This is a tough, tough thing.
