I've been through every element of anxiety. From cognitive (where I thought I was going crazy) to health anxiety (I thought I had heart lung and brain diseases). Well Last night I had an anxiety attack for the first time in months! It was a very, interesting experience to say the least.
I knew what it was the minute it happened BUT I did not freak out or loose control like I used to about 6-7 months ago.
I've learned many skills since I finally realized I was suffering or I should say living with things anxiety. Many of the skills I learned here.
Anywho, when it happened last night I decided one thing..... it's not gonna get me down or back. I've been very fortunate to control my experience with anxiety with a lot of the information that I record from here. One main piece of information from here which was to just accept the anxiety and to KNOW that it will go away and that it will pass.
Telling myself this and using mindfulness and just praying and trusting in God and Jesus it all went away.
I post every once in awhile and give advise to many users on this website. But don't think that people like us don't often times get the experiences of anxiety from time to time. We still do but now we know how to handle and live with it.
So what am I saying? Anxiety will come and go. Believe in it. If you are suffering from it, just remember it will pass. Tell yourself this. Because it is true. Don't fight it. Accept it and love your life. It gets better. It takes time and patience (and believe me when I say I had to learn this too).
Have faith. Have hope. Believe in God and Jesus and know that He will get you through everything and accept that you will get through it all.
