Here's so more info about a program that has really worked for me. It's a little pricey, but it has a workbook, DVDs, CDs that have group sessions that I found EXTREMELY helpful (so much so that it made up the majority of what i did), and info for you family and friends to help cope with your anxiety/depression. It takes more of a cognitive-behavioral approach to anxiety, which is nice if you're like me and have anxiety about medications, haha!
The website is : www.stresscenter.com It is Lucinda Bassett's Midwest Center "Attacking Anxiety and Depression" program.
You can get it from her site, off of eBay (which is what I did), or I even found out you can download some of the CDs off of LimeWire if you don't want to pay for the whole program. You can download LimeWire at www.limewire.com
This program helped me so much. I think there is 15 CDs total, but by the 7th or 8th one I stopped because I felt like I had it so under control. Occassionally I go back to them when it has been a tough week.
I would encourage anyone struggling to just TRY it. That's the hardest step is telling yourself that you deserve to feel good and then starting that process. After a few weeks of just a few CDs, including the Relaxation CD, you'll start feeling so much better.
Hope that helps! If you have any questions, I'll be happy to answer them! :)
