I've struggled with anxiety for as long as I can remember. I used to go to a therapist and the doctors put me on medicine. Both helped, but it still never completely goes away. With anxiety/depression I feel like you need to figure out what is causing it. If you find out that someone or something you know you can avoid it, but in some people (like me) nothing specific causes it. It is just the chemical inbalance in my brain. If you are like me to help relieve it you need to figure out coping mechanisms that work for you. For me exercise and writing is how I deal with my anxiety. That might work for you, but if not some ways could be by listening to music, talking about it, etc.. You can also question yourself when those thoughts are racing through your head. Ask yourself is their really a reason why you should be upset or worried? Anxiety and Depression don't just go awat. It takes a lot of work from you and sometimes that just isn't enough. In that case I would suggest going to a doctor.They have medication that can help balance you. I personally believe you need a combination of both to make a positive change in your life.
