  • Yeah I understand. I used to have a huge fear that I'd go off my rocker and spend hours crying, wake up crying, not sleep, and panic, panic, panic. I got through that hurdle when I decided that, since I knew nothing was wrong with me, however much I doubted that, I did one thing I was scared to do. And that was to take a bath. I'd been feeling lightheaded then and was scared to take a bath for fear I'd pass out and drown. But I did it and let me tell you, it felt good to have that sense of control, over deciding to do that.

    After, I just decided that, well, worrying over if it will happen won't help me, and in fact, would make everything worse so I'm going to go out and see that what I fear doesn't happen in public. And that's what I did. I was on the right track until a fear popped up, a different one, and I did the dumb thing and RESEARCHED it. Now that is the one thing I picturee in detail when going out, but that is you causing that. You're thinking and building up this impractical fear and how to lessen it is to not think about it. If you find yourself doing so, instantly do something else. Draw, read, watch a show, play with a pet. And switch all your negative thinking to positive ones because they EMPOWER you.

    "Wow, I'm pretty strong for feeling so afraid and doing this anyway."

    I wasn't always afraid of this and if I wasn't once, I can be in that place again."

    And congratulate yourself when you do something. Even if that means not worrying for five minutes or going into the gas station and picking out a drink you wanted. This builds self esteem and I've been doing this over a week, and feel pretty good, like I can do this.

  • I'm just coming out of a bad bout of anxiety myself so far it's lasted 3 months and there has been times i was too scared to leave the house or when I did and I arrived at where I need to be Id freak out because I wasn't at home.

    It will pass and you will start to feel normal again. If you haven't already then speak to your doctor about getting some tablets to quash the adrenalin they help to a certain extent. Other advice I can give is don't bottle it up let it all out tell someone how your feeling, tell me if you like, you're not alone and you will beat it but right now it seems you need a little help getting into the right mindset to do so. Drop me a message if you feel like you're freaking out ill try and offer the best advice I can.

  • Hi there. I am 40 from Ireland and I just want to assure you it can happen to us all.

    If you want to keep writing I would love to keep chatting about this as I think together we can help each other.

    Looking forward to your next post :-)

  • Hi,

    Some good advice given on the previous posts, I hope they help.

    Anxiety stinks, and you are so....young. I cant give you any further advice except it will get better.


  • I have been there too, I am a lot better now because I faced the things I was afraid off, I didn't want to leave the house so forced myself to just go to the local shop, nothing happened, then it was catching a bus, I did it, it is scary but you will learn to cope with it, I have just returned from a trip to town, among all the crowds, this is something I could not have done 3 months ago. I do think you should see a doctor just to put your mind at rest over the health issues,
