I've had to face something big that I haven't tried to think about for the last 20 years and I am now at the "I wont take ANY medication" part of my anxiety. Feeling like it's never going to end. I need a reminder that this will pass. I know I've been here before. I recently tried Lexapro, Cymbalta and xanax.

What has anyone done to get through this? Needing ideas and a pep talk.
