Im so sorry for anyone who has anxiety issues. I am 61, and this all started when i was 17 years old. Through all these years, after many, many counselors and Doctors i still suffer from these and thats a long time. All i can day is they will not kill you. Dont be hard on yourself. This is who you are, just like any other issue. Anxiety is part of your personality and nothing to be ashamed of or apologize for. Sure, i rarely get out of the house, but when i do, i made it and am proud of myself. Try to relax, and accept that this is you and maybe you can win, maybe you cant, dont beat yourself up because your not like everyone else. You are emotional, you get nervous and sometimes you wont be able to control it. Thats o.k. cause once we start to see that this is who we are, and allow ourselves to be anxious, nervous, and scared then it wont be so scary. Accepting is the biggest part of anxiety. Who cares it will stop, it wont last forever, and you will still be here to talk about it. I hope you all understand what im talking about. I have suffered for 50+ years and if i can just accept who i am, and try to enjoy my life with my panic attacks, then why not!! If there is no cure, then let them happen. When they go away, pat yourself on the back and say, good job, you did great. Then go on with your life.
