Got severe anxiety and nothing seems to help so gp has referred me to phyciatrist and I really don't know what to say or where to start for months I've longed to feel me again my symptoms are bad anyone has any ideas I'd love to hear them

It would be so helpful if I actually heard… read more
So, I've had severe depression and anxiety since a young girl. I used to have panic attacks,(one while I was driving and crashed). Over the years, I've learned to somewhat manage it.
