Help with anxiety

[posted by a reader]

I am going through some major problems in my life right now, out of my control.  I am suffering from major anxiety and I am having panic attacks.  I am tempted to start medication because I need a quick fix, something like Xanax to take the edge off.  This is very uncharacteristic of me because I never use medication and follow GSG, but I am desperate right now.  One of the sad things is, is that it will be cheaper to get medication.  I need help.  The only time I have felt free of my anxiety is when I eat 100% raw food, but I have a very hard time keeping it up.  Any suggestions?
