In brief: Meds and therapy
Anxiety is a common problem treated by therapists and mds alike.
Commonly prescribed anxiolytics such as prozac, (fluoxetine) ativan, and talk therapy that allows self-reflection can allow a person to come to terms with ones anxiety disorder. If no meds are preferred, it is common for someone to utilize cbt techniques with a therapists guidance. Try this book for starters.
