Dealing with Anxiety: Don’t Go to Psychiatrist! Because…

Hello guys! Gum here.

Yep, before giving the answer of “because…”, I will tell you a story. Unfortunately, you’re the main character.

One day…

You’re lying on your bed right now, doing nothing, just thinking about your life like every other jobless person does.

Then you remember how difficult your life is: joining embarrassing soccer club, not living in luxury, few friends also call you “weirdos”, that’s just too much for you. Then you’re asking yourself weird things that could happen, like “how mad my ex-boyfriend is after our relationship broken yesterday?”.

Then your heart pumps quicker. You feel dizzy. You almost slipped when you’re trying to stand up from your bed.

“Breathing is difficult” as you feel now. And you’re trying to find aspirin or morphine or anything you can find inside the first aid box–congratulation, you’ve got anxiety; or scientifically known as Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD)

Then surely lots of people around you, including psychology websites trying to tell you that you need therapy or medication or, in my language: time-and-money-wasting method to cure anxiety that doesn’t always work.

What psychologists suggestion for you?

Psychologists are cheaper than psychiatrists because they just commonly have to talk. First, they will talk you personally, you explain what’s your problem, they understand, they tell you the solution–and of course, psychological solution only.

When they’re mainly just talk and talk and talk, I’ve seen how they communicate, I’ve seen some of their websites and journals–and to be honest, most of them are as wise as Buddha, Jesus, and Muhammad.

So what’s these talkative, wise people called psychologists, suggest to you?
– Anxiety is mostly just fear.
– Stop trying to take negative conclusion of anything in your life.
– Never try to change what you can’t change.
– Never regret anything happens in the past.
– The soccer club you’re joining isn’t embarrassing, it’s okay if few friends call you “weirdos”, and many people are not living in luxury–these negative thoughts are just coming from your mind, try to reverse them, and you’ll be better.

Then?

Well, I can’t say that these suggestions from those wise man will work like a charm for everyone. Just try to follow these suggestions, when it doesn’t really work on you, you’ll need to meet a psychiatrist.

You’re not an anxious person as long as you…

are a confident person who confidently raise your hand and talk.
So please share your thoughts and ideas, I’m sure you are a genius with brilliant ideas and thoughts.

  1. I just wanted to see a psychologist (therapist). I didn’t want to be on meds or see a psychiatrist, but my therapist kept insisting that I needed medication and would harass me about it every session. I finally gave in and saw a psychiatrist… it did not end well.

      Maybe you should try psychologists (wise people, mostly) suggestions above. They work well on me, and I hope they will work well on you.
      Good luck! And thanks for sharing!
