I have struggled with mental health issues for my entire life. My anxiety is especially debilitating. Insomnia is also an issue, as is depression. Started getting panic attacks two years ago. I've tried everything and I'm starting to realize that there's no answer. There's no fix. This is a disease that I have and I'm going to be carrying this burden until I die. The realization is slightly liberating and also very depressing. I don't know what to do. I've just started laughing when people tell me all about the holistic remedies for anxiety. They don't know what they're talking about. Exercise, healthy diet, minimum alcohol, no smoking, no caffeine, therapy. I've tried all of them. Antidepressants didn't work either. The only thing that seems to work is shoveling massive amounts of Xanax down my throat. Which doesn't work either--not in the long term.
