Same here...over the whole thing heaps of times but im still here..it's the way it goes...we move forward and keep trying..we never ever give up...

As they say in Alcoholics Anonymous, don't give up 5 minutes before the miracle. When I came back from Iraq I started to have low-level anxiety Then I started having chest pains and palpatations for about 3 years. Then it turned into major anxiety becasue I didn't seek help. I was foolisly just being macho.

I'm a natural worrier and always have been. It actually served me very well in Iraq because it made me very vigilant and ready to fight.

But of course it has its downsides as well. Prolonged anxiety causes physical changes in your body like cortisol and adrenaline which will have a physical effect on your body and the nurotransmitters in your brain.

I would strongly recommend you try to get on the correct medication. I know the VA does not prescribe benzodiazepines because they are very addicting and very difficult to withdraw from however, you may have to go to a private psychiatris and get on some small doses while taking an antidepressant like Prozac. As my private psychiatrist says, I needed to break the fear cycle and give my nerves the space to heal. I am on 20mg of prozac and 2 mg of klonopin a day. It saved my life. I can't believe I ever thought about suicide.

But don't depend just on the medicine. As a natural worrier you really need to change your thought patterns and I've worked really hard on that. Good thoughts, good words and good deeds!

As for me personally, I had to make my peace with God. As Believers we should be free from all anxiety because no matter what happens to us it's a win-win situation. If I die I'm in heaven with a merciful and forgiving God for eternity. If I'm allowed to live a few more years then I count my blessings. But from here on, make your blessings count!

Praying for you Armyguy.

I am sorry that you are struggling. Sometimes it seems that you can't dig out of the pit you feel you are in. But there is hope. The anxiety and fear you bare, you don't have to. It wears on your body and your heart. I am glad you reached out for support and encouragement. Is there anyone close to you that you can share your feelings? A family member? Your physician? Your pastor? Find someone to share your feelings with who can help you with your anxiety. Meditating on the Word of God and prayer calm our spirit and confirm to us how important we are. Praying for you to feel comfort soon.
