The person who mentioned the possibility of the meds making your anxiety worse could be onto something. Maybe the therapy is naturally the way to go for you, as your body might be highly sensitive to certain meds. Something worth giving further consideration to. You might be onto something with this idea.
Personally, I'm big on paying attention to what my body is telling me at times. It's kind of funny how we can use certain fleeting comments without a 2nd thought yet such comments can help define a certain sense of dis-ease or unease we're feeling. Like when you know how people say
- That person's behaviour makes me sick to my stomach
- That person's behaviour makes me want to gag
- That person's behaviour is thoroughly depressing
- That person's behaviour is highly questionable
I'll change it up a bit here
- That med makes me sick to my stomach, yet we'll question what's wrong with us
- That med makes me want to gag, yet we'll question what's wrong with us
- That med is thoroughly depressing, yet we'll question what's wrong with us
- That med is highly questionable, yet we may not seriously question the med
In the first case, we can focus on how that person leads us to feel, mentally and physically. In the second case we may not listen to our body. If the med makes you want to gag, you're right to question it. Question health professionals about it. Don't doubt the natural intelligence of your body.
You might just find you're a natural when it comes to talk therapy.
