To be peaceful

I have always been anxious. I am embarrassed of the types of things I am afraid of. Doctors try to reassure me but it doesnt help much. I get fixated on a fear. My self esteem suffers as my world becomes more limited. I also have panic pop up even when i havent been aware of any intrusive thoughts and so cant place the reason; its almost as if anxiety IS me now. I feel like doom is coming so am always on guard. I keep thinking someone is choking. The sensations in the body are so uncomfortable. Venturing outside is tough some days and sometimes things seem disturbing to me. I find it difficult to concentrate on anything. I try to comfort myself but i think i have lost faith in myself. I beat up on myself. How can one go on without hope that things will get better? I try so hard all the time and I can't give up but I can't keep living this way. I used to feel a connection with God. Now I feel alone even next to people I love. What just came to mind is that I should practice Creative Visualization because it can help make goals happen, at least I think it helped me a long time ago. My goal is to be peaceful.

I think that is a great idea. I too have alot of your symptoms. I can barely leave my house, any physical discomfort sends me into a panic, and that feeling of doom that at times becomes unbearable. If the creative visualization works for you please let me know how to do it because I'd love to try a natural way of easing the anxiety.

So sorry you go through it too. Thank you for the encouragement. I need to reread the Creative Visualization book. If you want to try, the author is Shakti Gawain. Its the inspirational bestseller that has lead thousands to the fulfillment of their desires through the art of mental energy and affirmation.
