Make an Appointment with your Family Medical Physician - There are times when certain medical issues may be taking place that we are unaware of, such as a Thyroid Gland that is not functioning properly, than can cause depression, just to name one instance. Having a yearly physical and regular blood work completed can help to identify any issues that may exist medically. Be A Student of your Illness - if diagnosed with a type of Mental or Emotional Illness, learn all that you can about that illness such as symptoms, triggers, treatment options (both natural and medical), etc. Learn as much as possible as about the medications you may be placed on by a physician or natural oils or herbal treatments you may use to address your particular mental or emotional illness.
Seek out wise counseling from a Pastor or Professional/Biblical Counselor - These appointments provide you an opportunity with whom someone you can share the journey of your story through anxiety and/or depression on a continual basis. You can find such counseling resource centers on the "Support Agencies" page by following the Help Menu.
