I'm a 32 year old single mom to an amazing lil girl who's 3. I've always felt anxious for as long as I remember but a few month ago I

Started with anxiety attacks and every few days my anxiety would act up but recently it's gotten a lot worse to the point it's affecting my daily activities. I feel so sick weak and lightheaded al the time now with the occasional attack my last one was really bad I have never been so scared in my life. I can't help but feel like I'm going to die even tho the dr said I'm fine. This is day 5 on my antidepressants. Please someone help!!!!

Hi there. Anxiety is a real pain. Like you, mine was always dormant and in fact it wasn't until this year that I began to really feel it and became aware of it. At the end of last year I had my first panic attack and that set off a my journey with really dealing with my anxiety issue now that I was so much more aware of it.

I'm going at his med free. Things that have helped me are: meditation, yoga and lots of exercise, also talking to people. It's been a journey and I've had my ups and downs. Find what works for you and try a variety of things. I was amazed how much removing stressors really helps.

Be kind to yourself, take deep breaths and know you'll be ok.


When I had my daughter I realised that I did not want her to have anxiety. And I have since learnt that our behaviours come from those people who are part of our lives. My grandmother was scared of everything and she brought me up. What I used to do is choose to be a Super Hero and imagine putting on my cloak every day imaging that what ever happened I could deal with it. If your life was a movie how would you want to play it. Remember you only have this moment the past is research the future is imagined and all you ever have is this moment. What could happen in your life if you could choose to be brave just at this moment in time? Bravery does not mean your not frightened it just means that you stepped up x x
