Think I'm on the road to recovery

Haven't posted on here for a while as I haven't needed to go on,this time a month ago I was very bad with my anxiety ie dizzyness,feeling shaky,lightheaded got to the stage where I couldn't get in my car and drive,in the past month I have drove everyday,booked a holiday and done normal things! I feel great and can't believe I let it take over my life like I did! If I can do this all u can xx

That's brilliant you should be so proud 😊.

Did you change anything in your life or do anything to get you on the right path? Xx

The only thing I've changed is my attitude towards it,I know there's nothing wrong with me so when I get a symtom I just ignore it and it goes away,I know sometimes it's hard to but it does work xx

No I've ever bee on medication,I just sat down and said to myself I'm not letting it win me again,I started having a panic attack last week in my car but I controlled it and it went straight away,feeling normal feels weird at first but loving life now xxx

Yes I was dizzy everyday,it was awful,but now think to myself it's only anxiety as something would have happened as I suffered with it for 3 years xx
