Quote fromQuote fromAnyway I guess I'm going to have to see a therapist/doctor, or a psychiatrist. My problem is, I really despise anti-depression drugs they make me feel weird, has anyone else struggled with anxiety? Has anyone overcome it without the use of meds?
HELP, this is ruining my life!
Well, I have somewhat overcome certain anxieties I've had, to a point...
Although, I never had any anxiety as bad as you described. I've never thrown up because I was nervous. I've felt sick before, but that's as far as it got.
I think what you must first do is find out WHY you have anxiety over travelling. There is an underlying psychological mechanism there that activates your anxiety response. If you deal with that issue, you may be able to overcome the anxiety to the point you no longer have physical reactions to the idea of travelling.
Thats the sad thing, I have disconnected with almost everything. I like to stay at home, and part of it started from being lazy and not wanting to do things when I could just relax at home. Because I got this way today because I'm getting married, but we are just officiating it so its not a huge wedding or anything, I mean I'm not even nervous now. So somewhere along the way, my brain has learned to deal with everything that way, its like fight or flight you know?
I have tried to help myself get through this quite a few times and I am realizing I can't do it on my own, I can't overcome the power my brain has over me. The more I try and not think about it, it gets worse. At this point I feel I need extensive therapy. Pray for me.
