Looking for some help/advise: Hi I'm looking... - Anxiety Support
Claire weekes on YouTube - it’s old footage but best advice I’ve heard. I know what you’re going through. It’s truly awful but you are ok, accept the symptoms, don’t fight them
When I try to ignore them it’s like a kid that keeps bugging until u acknowledge it and if I fight them it makes it harder
Its like this for me too! I just need to find a way to control it
Yep it’s hard
If you can't calm down on yourself,see a psychiatrist and go on with some medication for a while..For me i could not deal with this panic and anxiety disorder,i was suffering severely so have to consult to a doctor and he prescribed me some medication.Although medication is not ultimate solution,it may give you some relax while needed.
Did you find a medication that worked for you?
Yes,Clonazepam(0.25mg) is really being a life-saver for me..But I have been on it for about a year,and i think i have developed dependency on it,0.25 mg does not work as effectively as used to be.See a psychiatrist he/she might prescribe some other medication base on your symptoms...I don't know your situation but if you want my suggestion i will tell you to do a little exhaustible but enjoyable work,like swimming.It really relieves you out and gives you a deep sleep,otherwise a sedentary life will affect you more,that happened to me..
Did you experience any side effects when you started this? Ive had anxiety for years but never used to suffer with the panic attacks until i had my daughter its gotten so bad! Im anxious and panicky all day everyday over nothing, sweating out no where and having a panic attack for nothing at all, its really staring to control my life
At first you will feel sleepy and weak but within few days you will get used to it,i hope.By the way,how old are you?
Thank you, im 22
See a doctor,he/she will helps you out of this..I have gone through a lot of hell,i know how hard it is.Most of all,don't fear,try to have a grip on you mind.Get well soon..
Thanks very much
You got great advice here. In the meantime, try meditation, it does work. Try a beginners meditation on you tube. Positive Magazine is a good one. Also look up mindfulness meditation. This specific type helps " ground" you. It keeps u in the present moment as opposed to anxiety keeping u in the past. Yoga is very good at helping with anxiety too. Starting a good regimen takes practice with either one but even if u just try you will feel a positive difference.
If you find yourself in a panicky situation Just breathe- in through your nose, out through your mouth slowly.... Let the thoughts go. Do not fight the thoughts. It is not easy but u can do it!
We r rooting you on! You are not alone.
Omg you sound just like me
Its so horrible honestly! How do you deal with this do you have anything that helps calm you down?
I try to push myself and it crippled me at times... I always feel weak and out of it like I’m going to pass out... I think I might start meds
My do tor gave me lexepro and Xanax
Does this come on worse at night times?
I am so sorry you are going through this. Anxiety is such a difficult thing to deal with. Do you have a close friend or family member you could talk to? It always helps me to do that because they will know what is going on and know how to be there for me. Also, it really helps me to get outside and go for a walk. I hope everything gets better.
Not what you're looking for?
