Other than seeing a doctor, what advice could you lend me about anxiety? Are there natural ways to help?
Dan went to see his doctor about feeling anxious all the time. Granted, we have been under lots of stress in the past couple months, it's really taking a toll on him. The doctor prescribed him xanax and zoloft. I feel like that's a quick fix and is not really addressing the problem. So I asked Dan to see a therapist first to get properly diagnosed and before proceeding with medication, not just start taking something his doctor says "works for him".
I'm totally NOT disregarding how Dan feels and I want him to get better but I'm just hesitant for him to start meds if it's really not necessary, kwim? Although, I do think he may need something extra for the time being, until things get settled in our lives again. I just don't want him starting something like zoloft when seriously in the next month or so things will be drastically changing for the better.
I think I'm just disconnected from this problem because I have never really experienced true anxiety... just things that make me feel anxious, in which case I avoid it.
