how did you know it was time to talk to a professional

how did you know it was time to talk to a professional? I have been self managing my anxiety. Sometimes i'm okay other times it's worse. I do feel panicky on rare occasion. Most people around don't know my anxiety problems. I just hide them as best as i can

Peacejude. I think you've answered your own question. NOW. don't (like me) wait until this will just go away. seek help because it is there. there is only one thing stopping you and that's your fear that it is a minor thing and that there are people oh so worse off than you etc etc..Take the first step and ask. never give up, keep asking until you get some headway and feel that you yourself are moving forward. it sucks I know but procrastination doesn't help. Find a 'stable base' and call. Never be ashamed to tell anyone because hiding it just makes you feel more lonely.

Interesting question, it's like the question; when do I take my car into the shop? The check engine light is on but it isn't making any funny noises nor is it driving bad. If you are having epesodes you can do some of the troubleshooting yourself, if you know what the trigger is you can sometimes just avoid that trigger. The flip side of that coin is can you avoid that trigger? If not you should analyze the trigger and see if you can figure out how to cope with it. If your attacks seem random and you don't know what to do that is the time to see a professional. If you take your car in when the light comes on often times the repair is cheap but once it starts to fail the professional will be more expensive and take longer. The same is true with anxeity.
