Have you been to counseling? Are you seeing a counselor/therapist now? If so, do you find it helpful. What has your experience been like?
I have had counseling, probably six years of counseling. This was mostly when I was younger. I haven't seen a counselor in years though and really don't want to see one again. I asked my doctor when I first started seeing him if I could just work with him. I have a stable home life and mostly need help managing my moods. I have had a lot of counseling already and just don't feel like I need to talk to anyone about anything. I haven't had the best experience with therapists anyway.
I actually enjoy counseling as long as it's one on one. I can't do the group thing, it seems like it's more of a "my life sucks more than yours does so feel worse for me" kinda thing in group. I no longer have insurance so I haven't done counseling in 3 years. Before that, I'd go about 2x's a month or more to talk and what ever.
Same as Missa_Mae, I know all the breathing techniques and what not...it's just hard to do them when you're freaking out and feel immediate death is coming from anxiety!
