Hey there!
 
I haven't been on in awhile, figured I'd come on and say hell and see how everyone is doing!.. Recently my anxiety has been getting the best of me sad   I don't know why but I don't like it! ugh! Does anyone have any good tips on trying to stay calm?
 
Thanks everyone!

I am sorry to hear the anxiety is up but remember to try to stay in the moment and we are here for you.

There are tips all over this forum. It's wonderful! Continue reading and exploring. Buy some self-help books. They sell them on this site, also. Look under "Bookstore" above. Educating yourself will help a lot. Go for some long, calm walks. Listen to quiet music. Take a long, hot bath. Call a friend and discuss something that's bothering you. Also, begin a journal.
