Self-treat Anxiety: Great question. Number one thing is to learn to be able to slow down your breathing and make it rhythmic and calm. When your anxious this can be harder than you think. Set a timer for 5 minutes and try to just sit in a relaxed position and breath slowly, focusing on your breath. See how you feel. For me this is the first non medical step to try. If 5 isn't enough try 10. All the best!

MCMI-IV disability: Your evaluator should have also interviewed you thoroughly and gotten a realistic picture of your life. If you decidedly under-reported your personal challenges than you are at risk for the results to disqualify you for benefits you should have otherwise received. But there is much more to the evaluation than just one test. Talk to your evaluator about your results.

Psych Test Results: The results of any such devices should be interpreted by a psychologist and reviewed with you before being provided to any outside party. Results should always take into account the whole picture of your situation and one answer here or there should not make a difference in the overall results, but recommend you approach the test giver and make sure to get feedback on your results. Good luck!
