INSIDE ANXIETY / DEPRESSION

At age 6, I had my first full-blown panic attack. Adults failed me in accepting and understanding what had happened. I was alone. For decades, I tried method after method, some self-taught, to combat what was going on and to learn to live with what would turn out to be an anxiety disorder and depressive disorder. This book is a life story documenting some of these methods, their effect, and their usefulness. It is written from my viewpoint. It is hoped that the reader can see themselves in me and seek understanding and help.

Definitely talk this over with a professional

If you have been diagnosed by a psychiatrist as having an anxiety disorder then the best thing to do would be to review these things with that psychiatrist who knows your medical history. If you have a disorder, you should be in treatment. I am not a professional, but these symptoms are not ones that I see commonly caused by an anxiety disorder. My anxiety disorder is cyclical, it goes up and down in intensity, and there have been times where it has increased in an overall sense, meaning became more severe. Definitely talk this over with a professional.
