I think its fair to say the silver bullet is at_least 4 years away. This is so, because FDA trials and all the beraucracy involved.
Its likely to take more though in case it does not work or does not work well enough. In that case they’d need to be trying more and more things, and that will add up some time to it.
It is also likely tocost a fortune (at least for the first couple of years)… IF… it rly works very well.
I recommend you to read “The power of now” that can be found here: http://www.expandingthoughts.com/wp-content/uploads/docs/Eckhart%20Tolle%20-%20The%20Power%20of%20Now.pdf
Ignore the budhistic religious ideas, focus on the main principle of living NOW, being fully conscious and feeling and hearing and seeing and processing every bit of information thats happening inside of you and around you NOW. That means you wont be thinking about future nor past, it also means, you will see that there are solutions to your problem that exist now. because of the constant fear and anxiety (thats a byproduct of not living in now), you just didnt see them.
The simple principle in this book, can heal you from fear and anxiety in matter of weeks. Without these emotions you should see that there are no real problems, only the ones that your mind creates for you. … You should also see that you will be able to deal with ease even with the most difficult things.
All you need, is to rly WANT NOT to be anxious and frozen with fear anymore.
It is likely you wont use this advice, you wont read the book, or you will just refuse to apply the principle (I WANT MY HAIR GODDAMIT I DONT WANT ANY POWER OF NOW BULLSHT … i can totaly hear that :)). In that case, You have willingly chosen to live in fear and anxiety. And it wont end any time soon. Realize the fact you are making this choice.
BTW I’m not endorsing any religion. I’m atheistic/agnostic myself. The main principle in the book is very good though.
Anyway. Good luck.
