I had Anxiety for about 4 years but I managed to make a full recovery and have been Anxiety free for about 1 year now
with no relapse. How did I manage it ? you may ask. Hopefully my tips will help you as I have been through your illness and come out the other end. There is no simple cure, taking a tablet for a week does not make your Anxiety disappear. You can help yourself and take control. I know it is difficult to think positive when you are feeling so bad with various medical conditions but if you understand Anxiety is a condition of your mind and it is your mind sending you the wrong signals that makes you panic and think you have all sorts of things wrong with you. Be careful when you read about peoples problems as you might believe you have them too. I had to use different techniques. First I bought books and read all about the condition, then sought medical help in the form of medication and CBT. On top of this I used distraction techniques, these really worked so I took up a new hobby, listened to relaxation music and therapy, you can buy these off Amazon. I tried most things including Kalms and relaxing teas, both had no effect.
Things that worked to steer your mind away from thinking doom and gloom help you to overcome anxiety. I went for country walks for example
something that I had never done in the past. And here I am feeling strong and anxiety free once more. If I can help others then please reply. Take care and remember positive thoughts make you feel better, you cannot laugh and feel down at the same time.
