Moving states and chronic anxiety

Thank you for taking the time to read my post. I don't want to get to into my background, but I suffer from generalized anxiety disorder and panic disorder along with bi polar nos.

Anyway, I am in the process of moving states. I'm 24 now and have lived my entire life in the same area, so moving states is an extreme change for me. I DO NOT do well with change. It makes me extremely extremely nervous and anxious. So bad that it makes me physically ill. I just wanted to know if there was anyone out there who suffers from anxiety and has been through this process? I would love to know how you were able to cope with the move and if you regret it...or did it turn out to be a wonderful experience for you? This is something that I have to do in order to better my future, but it completely terrifies me to be hours away from my family and friends and the place I call home.

You are at the crossways of life. Making any changes is always so difficult especially for someone suffering from anxiety. You are young and I give you credit for wanting to change your future for the better. I am older so I can tell you that many years ago

children stayed near their family. Now a days, young adults venture out and start a new life. You can make a new home for yourself knowing that your family will always hold the memories of the place you call "home". My daughter who is 26 moved out and got her own apartment and yet calls the house she grew up in as home. I wish

you luck in your move as well as your anxiety.

Hi! I'm so glad to have found this site :)

I do want to say that I'm not spamming, trolling, or anything of that nature. I have suffered from panic attacks for several years, and it inspired me to use panic attacks as a basis for research for one of my classes in my clinical Psychology PhD program. I do plan on being active on this site for support and to support others too!! My study has been designed to assess the relationship between panic attacks and any residual/lingering symptoms or impairment immediately after the panic attack itself has abated (referred to as “post-attack symptoms”). For those of you who experience panic attacks and have had one in the last 30 days, I want to invite you to participate in my research study as part of a course requirement for my PhD program at Alliant International University, Los Angeles. Your participation is completely anonymous and confidential. Please click on my link below to be directed to my survey. Also, please forward this link and description and tell your friends! I am very passionate about my study because I have had post-panic attack symptoms that no one seems to address in the medical and psychological field. I want to change that. I want people to know that panic attacks are more than the attacks themselves. It's the residua effects that can be difficult to deal with as well. My goal is to raise awareness to this phenomena and help others cope with the problems that come with it.

Thank you!
