Section 5: Finding Someone To Talk To
If you have ever had an allergic reaction to a food or an asthma attack you may experience anxiety about being safe in the world. Following the guidelines in this website can go a long way towards keeping you safe, and therefore keep your anxiety in check. But everyone needs help navigating the tricky things like dating with food allergies and staying safe in other social situations - and the feelings related to being "different". If you worked with a therapist while in high school, you might be able to continue your relationship and sessions via phone, facetime or skype. Otherwise, every college has a counseling center- and you would be surprised at the large percentage of students who use the service and most are free. Sometimes it takes a few tries to find the right therapist. If you don't feel comfortable or find yourself being less than honest with a counselor - don't waste your time - and switch immediately to someone else.
