I have been going through this without meds and it can be done. Its been hard trust me. Have you read any Dr. Claire Weekes books? Those have helped me get though so many times and lots of other people too. I was given Zoloft and didnt like it. I only took it once. Talk to your doctor and definitely try therapy and take things one day at a time.

Christina, have you talked to your doctor about a benzo like Xanax? I also don't want to be on meds constantly, but with a benzo you at least have something around that will help you get through those bad spells - you just take 1 pill when you need it, and that's it, like taking an aspirin when you have a headache. :)

I also recommend those Claire Weekes books, they are very comforting. I've heard some great things about the Midwest Center for Stress and Anxiety tapes as well, although they run around $350. In the meantime though, don't be in a big hurry to be off of all meds - if there is one out there that can help you cope while you are learning and getting through this, then I don't think you should deprive yourself of that relief. :) Take care of yourself!
