Three things I wish I knew about anxiety when I was younger

Medication isn’t a quick fix or a cure I know that medication can be a controversial subject, and I go back and forth about whether I’d like to give it another try myself. It doesn’t help that my first experience wasn’t great. I was only 17 when I first went to my doctor about my […]
