      me too.. I have PCOS and the depression not having a child is killing me. I put my depression mode in something productive like working, studying full time while working and exert extra effort in exercising. It helps me a lot to overcome the anxiety.

    • I can agree with these above comments. Although I didn’t want to talk to a soul, most people at a gym aren’t there to strike up a convo. The pool is good too. Another source of “therapy” I used was volunteering. I would go to places I didn’t know a soul. Being anonymous is more powerful than we know. Good luck xo

  3. U of A hospital psychiatric unit has outpatient care – you can talk to someone right away. They have a morning and afternoon time. You can call to confirm the time and talk to them ahead of time as you need. Helped me so much when I was non- functional.

  10. Anxiety is the purest form of fear anyone could ever deal with.. I know how you feel..
    But trust me you can cure yourself of this bullshit
    Anxiety = fear.. what do we do to get over fear.. You face it.
    Practice makes,,, well just slightly better in this case and if you suffer from anxiety you will understand. 20 YEARS.. and I’m still practicing but I tell you the slightly is nothing now.. I want to help as Manny people as I can with anxiety.. I as well suffer from manic depression. But not everyone grows up with.. great conditions to deal with mental health,, aka 20 years of trial and error and suicide attempts and losing my mind only to find it really. Thankfully lol

    Baby steps,, things you know give you anxiety, however you know you can deal with.. these are the things you now look for to practice on. Anxiety is only as powerful as you let it and proof of this is in plain sight! Our history, everyone on this planet has dealt with this crap for thousands of years.. simple is always better and the more you believe the better.
    Face your fears to get over them, this is not easy,, life was never easy. But life is worth facing fears for, anxiety is your ability to adapt to situations more quickly. Anxiety is a gift, a 6th sense.. face your anxiety because our brains and our hearts are always not on the same page if you will. History proves there was not great psycologcal “help” even now things are still questionable
    However people have dealt with things in better ways than “these days” you know it, I know it. I’m gonna say it.
    Life is a bitch, sometimes you have to fight back. Anxiety is no different.

No migraines, no nausea and no more anxiety since taking it!! My niece also suffers from anxiety, can’t make friends st school and sits alone almost in tears everyday. Put her on the same product over thanksgiving and her mom can’t stop thanking me!! She’s already made friends and feels much better!! Message me if you want to know more

    I also recommend heading to the U of A Outpatient located on the main floor of the hospital, close to the coffee kiosks. It’s best to get there by 8:00 am as it’s a first come first serve system and their resources are limited each day. You will have the opportunity to talk to a psychiatrist for a quick assessment and treatment can be started right away for you. I was also able to see a psychiatrist by having my family doctor at Links Medical Clinic do what he called a “rapid referral” and I was able to see someone within a couple of weeks. Best of luck and you are strong by reaching out.

  19. Lots of people have told you about the Emergency Psych Unit at the U of A. Why don’t you try them – or try the Support Network. Best, call 911 as Mj Mankind suggests.

    For me personally, weed and my service dog has been helping me a lot to function like a normal person. I suffer from severe anxiety and PTSD. I can’t leave my house by myself, I can’t talk to anyone, I can’t do anything outside of my home or backyard. But since having my service dog I have been able to feel comfortable enough to go back to school. So it’s a start! (After almost 2 years)

  26. U of A outpatient clinic.
    They will assess you and see what they can do. If you really need to get some intense help, they have a four month program four days a week, that will go a long way to help you start sorting your issues, and start living again, rather than being paralyzed.
