I too have lived with severe anxiety. It took meds to calm my mind and my body. And lots and lots of good therapy as well as a good therapist. I've learned different coping skills so I no longer need the meds for the anxiety. I do have an episode on ocassion, but it's more tolerable than ever before. I would go from A to Z with fear in a matter of seconds. I took meds for about 2 years and them slowly weaned off of them. Now I take them only when I don't feel I can cope with the anxiety on my own. I'm grateful for meds! I never thought I'd use them, but when I thought it was that or die, I was glad they were available to me. I only take them maybe a few times a year now depending on what's going on in my life. I'm still seeing my therapist and have been with her for over 9 years. I've grown a lot, but it's been hard. It's been worth it though! I had so much fear going on in my life before I would litterally die from it.
I hope this helps you and gives you some hope for yourself.
Don't give up trying.
