Are you seeing a psychologist/therapist? Who prescribed your medications?

Even if I've been to a psychiatrist u should go and try a different one. If ur having ,constant worry and dread there are many options to try like older trycyclic antidepressants and Maio inhibitors work for alot of people to. There's tons of medications and if u can't power through this stressful event naturally than I would consider what I mentioned or there is TMS which can help stimulate your brain. Ect is another option of all else fails

İve been seeing psychiatrist since i was a kid. İ have even visited one of the famoust one... (the one on the national TV every morning...) didnt go well. Actually one of the worst it was.
When we focus on my situation: Especially waking up is extremely painful. How can i describe it: It feels like you have been sentenced to death and you wake up in the jail next morning with shock of inevidable reality. That burst of pain in that very single moment is worst than actually being killed.
Im gonna check jamesjay’s suggestions thank you.

Plus i have stomach problems due to anxiety. İ have constant stomach cramps and cant digest foods.It was causing gastiric pressure reflux and leading to gastiritis. My family doctor prescripted some stomach med. They helped me a lot thankfully. But... even though i have the apetite i cant eat to avoid digestion problems.
I was a fitness trainer. 78 kg Now i am 64 kg.
Those trycyclic drugs wont be prescripted for me. My doctors will never take the risk.i am going to check other options.

Can you name the therapies you have already had?
Do you have experience with Acceptance Commitment Therapy (ACT) and with mindfulness?
