Has anybody recovered from anxiety?

    • Thread Starter

    Has anybody recovered from anxiety, through getting help? I need motivation in order to seek the help I need.

    I've had very bad anxiety for most of my life. I would really recommend seeing someone about it because it can be such a horrible thing to experience and there is help available out there. I had CBT (cognitive behavioral therapy) a couple of years ago and it helped a lot with my anxiety - I'm not "cured" but my life is much more pleasant now I don't have crippling anxiety resulting from everything I do. I think anxiety is something you really need to work on, as the years have passed for me and I've put skills I've learned into action I find that it's not easy, but it is possible, to radically reduce anxiety.

    There's an online CBT course called MoodGym which you might want to check out - I haven't done it myself but I've heard good things about it.

    Good luck.

    Yes you can recover from it. Stuff like cutting down the drinking and smoking, and green tea and tiger balm, and some psychiatric medicines, can help a lot!?
