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

Do you have any tips on how to calm down when your feeling like this? I feel like this all day everyday

No I try to breathe and In out honestly nothing working for me like right now I’m weak scared to do anything vision bothering me

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..

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.

Sometimes yeah, when I'm sat just watching tv or not doing much it comes out of no where

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.
