I have Generalized Anxiety and panic disorder . With the help of medications I am so much better. I also did a lot of therapy. Many people are not willing to try meds or don’t give them a chance. Mental illnesses are like any other illness, they need to be treated with medication. Otherwise you are not treating the illness. I am very open and do not feel the stigma. I am in the entertainment business and accepting my anxiety as an illness has helped me do better in every aspect of life.
