For anxiety, biofeedback therapy can be amazing.

Thanks guys for your replies! As I continue to get worse I have decided to seek professional help this time around. I was able to deal with my anxiety, OCD, and depression before, but since it has been triggered again this past january I can't get it under control. I thought I took care of it but it came back so time to take a different avenue.

I hope it works out for you. I had severe anxiety once, it was induced by an environment (forests). I am not the "go to a professional" type, and was afraid that if they gave me medication it would send me over the edge, yet wanted some sort of relief. I don't drink b/c it makes me sick, as have most all of the very few prescription drugs I have ever, there was some thread of logic to my thinking. When I look back on it, it would have sooo helped me to go to a professional and at least have them tell me what the matter was. I had no idea, it took me a long time (relatively) to figure out it is called "anxiety". :) It is one of those odd things that no one ever talks about, at least no one had ever done so around me to the point I understood what it is. Other than my horses, sitting and watching really wide rivers would calm me down...I couldn't put 2 and 2 together - the reason they calmed me down was - no trees. Sometimes what is triggering anxiety is so obvious you can't see it.

I believe if someone seeks help for it, they are half way to getting to where they want to be.

There is just as much horse sense as ever, but the horses have most of it.
