    The first step to helping your problem is to admit that you have one. I’ve had Generalized Anxiety Disorder and Dysthymia(long term depression) for over 8 years now. I’m only 20 and it’s been getting really difficult because these conditions prevent me from even ordering my own food, let alone allowing me to work.. I haven’t worked in 4 months now. I’m planning on going to school for an Administrative program but I’m worried about my conditions getting in the way. Do any of you guys work despite your hardships? how are you able to do so? I’m wanting to go to therapy soon, but I don’t want to take any pills.
