I've tried to seek medication for my panic/anxiety attacks from my family doctor but all I get is, "You're better off trying to cope without medication." and I'm getting tired of it. I have crippling anxiety attacks, sometimes I pass out, vomit, black out, etc. and nothing stops them except certain medications (which I've had to try illegally). I'm sick of knowing the answer to my anxiety attacks and not being able to get the help I need because my family doctor knows my family too personally to put his friends daughter "on drugs". I'm too afraid to get a job because I had such frequent anxiety attacks (stress in a customer service job) that I started getting penalized at work for not being able to "perform my duties". I feel like a failure because I can't even seem to cope with the simplest of jobs when I know if I had help I'd be able to. How have you gone about seeking medication for your anxiety? I appreciate every response.
