Road to recovery !

I have been having anxiety and panic attack for month . I felt anxious every day like 24/7 for about 3 months. I tried to work out why and it was to do with fear that is something wrong with me medically but it wasn't really.

I was so tired and fed up that I didn't see any way out I really worried that this is never going to change but it did.

I am on the road to recovery because of strong will and hope to get better. I am still suffering with anxiety and even feel panicky sometimes but is so mild that not even noticeable.

You will ask how , well I started from reading a lot of diffrent stories on the Internet and trying to figure it out which of the stories is similar to mine . I was also looking for a cau use of my problems but I really gave up after few weeks because it really doesnt matter . I don't care when and why it started I just want to get better I said to myself and that was the first step to recovery. I changed my lifestyle , diet and I quit smoking and stop caffeine . I have occasional coffee like one a week or so but not more.

I stopped worrying so much why do I feel like this and in my head start thinking that all I feel is a symptom of my anxiety and nothing more . Every day is another way to recovery and it really works .

For all that suffer like me . Trust me there is a hope that we will get better and I really strongly believe it l I don't take any medication and really hope that I don't need to take it ever .

I am still not 100 % and I think it will take time maybe even long time but I don't care because I can control the way I feel and I am better already . I am better than I was weeks ago and bettre than yesterday .

One advise for all . I never stopped living my life , I always carried on like I was healhty . Even that I suffered very high anxiety and panic attacks. I travelled and I got on the plane ( yes it was a hell and I thought I would die but I did it ), I went out and went to croudy places and it was bad. I live and I survived so can you .

I do know now that anxiety is not terminal illness and you can fight it and you can live with it and you can learn to control it .

I am not saying that I am magically cured because there is not magical cure but a long road ahead of you and I you can do it .

  • This is an awesome story! Thank you for your testimonial. I am trying to get where you are now. I lost my job 3 months ago and since then, my anxiety skyrocketed to 1000%. I feel it everyday! I am so tired of feeling this way. I can literally say i am suffering because of the constant thought of dying. I made my Dr appointment finally, so that should put me at ease a little. Thank you for your story, i thought i was alone!

  • Yes , trust me I was there and I feel like now I am so much better. Accept it and learn to live with it . Think of it as just symptom of anxiety . Wherever I feel like I cannot breathe almost daily I say ok this is just a symptom and it will go . I don't try to fight it but let it be. I will go and it does. The same apply to others symptoms you get . Wish you luck . Happy New Yeat
