Really don’t know where to start. I can only say that I have never felt so lost or confused about who I am or what my purpose is. I am trying to figure out why it is that I can’t get a grip on my own existence. I’m at a loss, and have felt this way for so long. I have been trying to find the light, yet I stay in a rabbit hole more often than not. I wasn’t sure of where I can turn to and ran across his site. I hate social media, so I wasn’t sure where to turn. I am in a constant state of anxiety, panic, and depression. I have not gone to anyone because I have no health insurance, but more importantly, I am terrified of turning to pills for comfort. I drink to feel like I can cope (but it feels like a crutch, and something I’m losing control over) and try to manage my life as normal as possible without having to turn to something else. I feel lost. Hope someone out there hears me.

Hey Abundance19! Welcome! In regards to the turning to pills for comfort thing. There are many many medications out there to help you deal. There are even a few people who take supplements you can get over the counter for anxiety and depression. Also, getting out and doing something even helps. I have terrible heath anxiety, but yesterday I got out for a couple of hours and worked on planting things in the garden and I forgot about my health for a little while. The main thing is that you get some kind of help. Even if you go for one appointment to talk to a primary care doctor is a step in the right direction. But do go. Our heath is way too important to ignore. And mental health is a disease that people just come out of on their own. I wish you the best and will be praying for you on your journey!

If you don't want to go to a doctor, go to your local vitamin store and pick up some Ashwagandha or L-theamine. They both work good as an herb for anxiety and are not addicting. I prefer Ashwagandha but they are both good. At least consider taking something as anxity typically will not go away on it's own - at least not long term
