I am 18 years old. Today I finally got the courage to talk to my doctor about the stress obsessive thoughts, and the physical harm it does to me. I got an appointment with a psychologist. She diagnosed me with anxiety, panic disorder, and being severe hyperemotional. The doctor did not want me to go to a psychiatrist because he might give me medication that would be addictive, and affect my learning skills. I have exams very soon, so they try to help me in some other ways, but I tried these before without any good. What should I do? I cannot deal with the obsessive feelings, crying, trembling all the time, digestive problems, and everything that comes with these disorders every day.
