Hello, I am new to this forum, desperate for any info on health anxiety. I have suffered all my life. I am now 64. I was thinking about accupuncture and was wondering if anybody has ever tried that. I don't like side effects of anti-depressants and don't want to be in a habit of Xanax. I can't understand why nobody can tell me if I have a chemical imbalance or my negativity self talk and just life experiences I have lived through have created the anxiety. Started around age 20 with panic attacks then seemed to come and go throughtout my life, but seem to be coming on a more often basis which is making my life difficult. Grew up in a perfectionist household and recently got a handle on being a compulsive cleaner myself. I am getting so desperate I would almost consider ect to erase my
brain thoughts, lol. It will be nice to hear from anyone who is suffering from anxiety.
