I find it very difficult to convince myself that I am fine, and that I shouldnt worry because anxiety is just fear from my imagination. So if my fears are just false events appearing to be real, why cant I convince myself that? I start to worry and panic when I feel shortness of breath, I feel like each breath that I take is going to be my last. Why!? Nothing dangerous has happened to me so far, so why cant I be satisfied with that? Why can't I just let it go? Why does anxiety have to make me feel this way?! Its very frustrating and I want to get to the bottom of it so I can starr living my life again, the way I want to live it. But so far anxiety has been obscuring my path. I just feel like I need some sort of reassurance that I'm going to be ok, and that its safe to start living my life again...

Hello, I am suffering from health anxiety since a month now. Try schuessler salts they are homeopathic and harmless. They sort of relief the build up stress. That is what keeps anxiety working. You need to release stress. One good week without episodes can help you a lot in the long run.


Hi Glitch. I have found that a multi level approach has helped me the most. There doesn't seem to be just "one" thing that helps but a combination. You will be ok and it is perfectly reasonable to expect to be living your life. Asking all the "why's" is natural and normal but all it seems to serve is to just add fuel to the fire. I have found that giving anxiety that much time and thought in my head only leads to more anxiety. Unfortunately there is no magic cure, but with time, patience and learning some new skills and ways of coping you can feel better :)
