A lot of things have helped my SA :

1) Meds where the 'band-aid' for helping my anxiety. Zoloft + welbutrin , and ativan as needed. Along with tea's and calming herbs!

2) CBT , this might of been the most important step in helping my SA, without CBT, I am unsure how I would of gotten past a few of my fears! The therapist also was good to vent from too.

3) My service dog , They have been proven to boost self esteem, speed up or kick start recovery, and help with motivation! They are great with people with depression . Along with the work they do to help you recognize your over reactions! With Brownie, he alerts me before a panic attack *which helps a lot*.
