hi everyone, I'm new to this site, just recently found it but it helped me so much. Basically I have been struggling with anxiety for more or less 6 years but only for a year now it's been quite severe. In the past 1 year it sort of stopped my life to the point where I don't even want to leave my house anymore. I constantly worry about getting a heart attack. I have never had any tests done ( cos I know it's only anxiety ) and I don't have anyone in my family with a history of a heart problem. In fact my family is very healthy. And Im only 27 for love of God so I know all these "facts" about having an anxiety. Only recently I have decided that I need to take my life back and get back in control. I am talking out loud to my anxiety when I feel like it coming, yet sometimes it's still hard to overcome it. In the last 1 week I managed to talk myself into the Reality that I am indeed not having a heart attack which has helped me. But I still get random attacks. I guess my question is how have you overcome your anxiety or how do u try to calm yourself down? It is so silly and I want it to stop by now. Like today I had a random thought of me having a heart attack and that was it....my mind ran away with me leaving my body behind anyway....any suggestions and help is appreciated thanks!
