Hi Valium you need to start from the beginning of when you started severe anxiety and depression you need to open up and be honest to the Psychiatris you may have to go back unto your childhood adolescents etc I hope and pray for you thanks

Start yoga, you'll learn to breath. Excercise, and spoil yourself occasionaly, your worth it :) Even if it's just tea and a muffin with a friend

It is good that your are going to see a psychiatrist. Don't worry as your psychiatrist will support you and listen to you. Because I was in denial that I had a depressive illness I put off seeing a psychiatrist for years and years. Oh how I regret that now. I was 54 years old when I first saw my psychiatrist and what a difference it has made. I have finally accepted how ill I have been and how much I needed help. My medication is sorted and I know I must continue to take it even when I think I'm okay. She has helped me to accept my illness and learn to live with it. I do still have blips but I now cope with them. If only I'd done this years ago I'm sure life wouldn't have been such a struggle.
I can also talk about it to people now.
I wouldn't be where I am now without the support of my psychiatrist.
Remember they are there to help you.
Don't let depression/anxiety control you, learn how to control it. Don't do what I did for too many years. It may take a little time so embrace the help and see a difference.! Love and hugs x

I found Valium really effective for a temporary fix for anxiety -- fear of flying, for example -- except that every time I used it my resistance had increased, so that I had to take three or four tablets to get the same effect that one used to have. I would have thought that after two or three years of not using it I would have lost my resistance to it, but my body remembered and I al.ways had to pick up where I had left off. I haven't used it in years

My best advice...try not to feel anxious about feeling anxious. That's what I try to do. It helps a little.
