A person who has challenges to overcome like this should probably find a good teacher. On a forum like this we can't really offer medical advice.

it is possible, especially if one is not sincerely interested in following the noble eightfold path. i've had my experiences with it, and i can assure you that it is no toy. if you have an overthinking mind, it'll hurt you in ways you never knew were possible.
Just as kusa grass wrongly handled cuts the hand, even so, a recluse's life wrongly lived drags one to states of woe.
