      The only recommendation I have is finding a provider that is willing to work with you to find a med. My first provider had me try zoloft which worked for about 2 months before the side effects got really bad and it stopped working for me. She wanted me to give it longer to work until finally I decided to stop taking it on my own (I did slowly wean myself off of it so I wouldn't have additional issues). I had gotten to the point where it was easier for me to take control of my health than keep working up the courage to say something and be dismissed again. Now I'm using the K health app and I feel like its helping me find a med that will work because while the providers I've talked to always seem to have a preference on which med they want to prescribe me, they have all been open to hearing my thoughts on what I would prefer to try as well (I have worked in healthcare for a little while so I do have some basic knowledge of psych meds and I have done additional research for myself). Finding someone that is supportive and wants to help you find a med that will work for you makes things so much easier. I still am not sure if I've found the right med or not but it makes my anxiety a lot better knowing I can say what I feel and actually be heard and supported. Good luck with everything! ❤️

      Hi! Idk if this is an issue for you, but I’m a huge over-thinker. But one thing that has really helped me with my anxiety is I just tell myself, “everything will work out in the end. No need to worry. It’ll work itself out.” It has helped me tremendously. :>
