Well so sorry you feel that way but your not alone. My life has been on hold for two years from anxiety. Stops me from just going out and enjoying myself as i never feel well. Don't know what the answer is for us all.

I'm so sorry. Your struggle is real and my prayer is you can have confidence without fear of being an embarrassment. If it happens it happens. So many people struggle and you trying to push even if you may have an attack is brave and may be the start to your healing. My friend gave me a word the other day and it has been SO freeing for me.

In fear, do it anyway. It was like a light bulb clicked in my head. I am not going to live my best life if I sit back and hide and don't live it. Yes it was scary, yes my heart goes crazy, but then....life happens and I am so blessed. You have taken great actions, keep it up. We didn't get to where we are overnight so we will take time to overcome, but we WILL overcome!!!

I have some other resources but it sounds like for now, you are filling yourself up with some good ones. Please let me know if you want more. I am praying for your great strength and peace in your heart!

Best wishes ~

Yesterday was ok until I had a dizzy spell / lightheaded and had to lay in bed all day I was so scared to get out of bed or move because I didn't want it to happen again. I swear once I say am doing better something always pop up now today I feel off balance going to the doctor to get checked to see if I have vertigo because I had ear problems since a kid I feel struck today very unhappy

Oh goodness, I understand dizziness! It is hard when you don't want to feel that way and it is easier to stay in bed just in case. But I miss out on so much when I do that. I have been dizzy for almost a year now. Finally found it relates to my eye tracking movement. So don't give up if you aren't getting answers from one doc to the next.

Anxiety itself can be a source of dizziness as well.

Depression and anxiety are often linked so here is some resources on those lines: bit.ly/2hwXnqH

I am hoping it will help but not sure yet. I have heard amazing things about her though. Anything is worth a try to feel better in my opinion.

I understand the struggle to go, but you can't get better with no trying and that is not what your heart wants. Your heart wants to be well and fully living again. I am believing that for you.

The struggle is real and I don't discredit that, but it is okay to believe for success and wholeness.
