i feel like im going crazy - February 8th 2012, 02:50 PM

Between all my anxiety and OCD I feel like all I ever do is make myself unhappy. I cry all the time and feel depressed. It takes a toll on everything in my life. I am going to see a doctor but really dont want to have to resort to medication. How can I get over this on my own the natural way?

Hey there!

I'm sorry to hear how you've been feeling recently, but i'm glad you're going to speak to your doctor about it as it seems you're really struggling at the moment.

When you speak to your doctor it might be worth explaining your thoughts on medication, that way when planning the best way to help you, your doctor can bear that in mind. You haven't said if this is your first time speaking to your doctor, but often they will try other methods such as counselling, before turning to medication.

Are there any particular situations which make you more anxious? Maybe if you think these triggers through now, you'll be able to come up with ways to help yourself cope in the future. If you find yourself getting anxious about something, it can sometimes help to think about what the worst possible scenario could be. Often it's not as bad as you think.

Another thing that's important is that you talk to people about what's going on. You aren't alone with how you're feeling and sometimes just talking about things can help. I'm sure you already know about HelpLINK and Livehelp here on TeenHelp, but if you ever want to talk you're welcome to PM me, and i'm sure any of the other staff members on here would be happy to help you too.

Something else that can help when you're feeling depressed is to try to do things to cheer yourself up. I know this can be hard sometimes when you're feeling miserable, but trying to take your mind off things by doing things you enjoy can help.

One more thing is that it might be worth looking into different forms of therapy before you go to your gp and if you find something that you think might be helpful, you can always mention this to him/her and they may be able to make you a referral.

I hope you're feeling a bit better, if you ever want to talk let me know.
Look after yourself,

I have the same stuff you do babe=( I know I have OCD and I def. have anxiety and i'm thinking I have a hint of depression too. I don't know how to help because I haven't really known how to help myself ether. But I wanted to drop by and say, you aren't alone. We can get through this together. It will be hard, but it doesn't mean it can't be done. I'm glad you are going to a doctor, you are braver than me lol=) Feel free to PM me anytime or even if you want a new friend, im here=)
