I understand your frustration and aggravation but your symptoms are treatable. It’s inaccurate to believe that you “should” be able to treat your own symptoms. Mental health professionals receive specialized training to treat these symptoms. There are medications and other treatments that can help you to feel better.
You mentioned not wanting to “go to psych all the time.” That would likely not be necessary. A treatment plan can be developed that meets your needs and fits your schedule. There are many options but one of them should not be avoiding treatment altogether. That would be a mistake.
You might try contacting your primary care physician for a referral to a mental health professional. Another method of finding good treatment providers involves contacting your insurance company. They can provide additional information about resources in your community. Perhaps a friend or a family member knows a provider who could help. Realize that you can be helped. You shouldn’t accept suffering if treatment is available. Please take care.
