I dont take medications because I personally believe that I don't need them to get better. I know that's not the case for everyone, but I fought to myself through anxiety once before, no meds, and I did it. :-) I think if I was on meds, I might still be dependent on them because I wouldn't have been forced to make the very hard but very positive life changes my anxiety needed me to make for my life to be healthier (cutting out toxic foods, habits, people, thoughts, leaving a bad relationship, basically changing everything).
Now four years after resolving my anxiety through life changes, yoga, and dietary changes it came back because I fell back into a lot of those old patterns. I want to take meds on some level when its hard, but I know I can do it again...I'm actually quite close to feel great these days) and that I'll have that feeling with me at all times whether or not I have a pill.
