I suffered anxiety once last year and because of the experience I usually become really frustrated when I think about how traumatizing being in a dark place is and especially because you can't describe what it is you feel at that moment to anyone. Because they won't understand. I have fallen in and out of depression many times by just talking myself in and out of it it's annoying.
Anxiety is a bitch! I have been there, I never got meds for it but I tried wholistic approaches, meditation and exercise
