Alternative means I found effective

I suffered from PSTD, and after minimal counselling and no drugs, finally got over it. For me, my doctor recognised assertiveness problems and advised some self-help books, which I found helped a lot to recognise what I can do to get it out. Time does heal, doesn't help in the meanwhile. I still have problems with anxiety and have found between bouts with Xanax, Meditation, Drink, Sports and Assertiveness practice all have helped. Rather than consider drugs alone, why not try some sports and meditation - they are not the be all end all, but I think in retrospect there was a lot of positive benefits for me getting over it on my own (although it took say 10 months). Meditation and sports are not the be all end all but I use them as the first and most effective resort now. I used TM (Transcandental Meditation, excuse spelling) but there are many forms, swimming can be one, watching the line at the bottom of the pool, all help to get your mind of the memory and get beyond it
