    Methylation supplements to help your COMTs? Also Emotional freedom technique/CBT/Mindfulness for helping change your thoughts, checking for pyroluria or possible chronic infections also good, ruling out b 12 deficiency is also worthwhile. Ashwaganda and Rhodiala Rosea are awesome adaptogens that help depression and anxiety without the higher toxic profile of medications. Lithium orotate is also worth looking into but check and see if possible side effects would be an issue for you first.

    The anxiety that I had since falling ill w/ ME resolved in stages, as I added various supplements. First step was eliminating gluten and dairy: this halved my over-the-top hyperactive nervous system. Later, the minerals and B6 (P54P) for pyroluria. Then lithium orotate (5-10mg) evened out my mood swings, tendency to cry over every sad story. Once my B12/folate levels were up to the correct levels, there was no more insomnia, and caring for adrenals resolved all remaining anxiety, irritability. You might find some psych drugs to help you, but you'll be better off setting down the long road of deep healing for your long term health and well being.
