I have no idea what you mean by you can't see a therapist because your family is always working. What does that mean? Even if you take medication and it works, you should still try therapy because if therapy works your problem is gone. Meds only treat symptoms, and as you're seeing, they have their own problems. So you should definitely find a psychologist who specializes in anxiety treatment and it that doesn't work, find another and try again. That being said, there's no guarantee therapy will work and it does take time. If you're as bad off as you describe you will be advised by anyone to seek out medication to get you stabilized. I get it, I have GAD. It's clearly awful. It's very hard to treat. If you seek out therapy the therapist, if you're as bad off as you describe, will send you to a psychiatrist for medication. Again, anyone would when it goes this far. There are no tips or advice that will fix this, only action will. Take the medication, get stabilized, and get into therapy so you can get off this roller coaster some day. Learn some relaxation techniques, such as meditation, exercise, and breathing exercises. Do it regularly, make it a habit. Don't sit on your butt and stew, it won't help. Do it when you're still young and adaptable.
