2) being out of your comfort zone is when your going to learn and grow

Looking for some mental health advice - I’ve been dealing with pretty debilitating anxiety/panic attacks for over 5 years. Finally started to get some help for it through medication, however the first 3 meds my PCP prescribed me (ssris) didn’t work. Because I haven’t deal with the anxiety it’s gotten really bad. Do I go to a pyscitatrist whose trained more in pharma or start with therapist. Have done therapy in past without much help.

Hi everyone. I've been in therapy on and off for years for anxiety, but I'm thinking of trying antidepressants.

I got a new job this year (in a new practice area) and I'm having trouble managing. It's to the point where I can't relax at home because I'm worried about things at work. I feel like I've lost the ability to filter out my worries.

I'm hesitant to try medication because I don't want to "not care" and miss a big deadline or make a mistake.

Anyone care to share their experiences?
