Dear AriesGreat thread, kudos to you. I do not have the rapid heart beats but I sure do have the fear of anxiety.................
I have tried to accept that I have anxiety and that I am a survivor so I will be fine. There are times like the present where I will go through several weeks of high anxiety and I hate waking up in the morning as I do not know what to do to stop the anxiety.
I have all the tools and know what to do but the fear of the anxiety just "being there" and that I will always have to deal with it kicks the anxiety into high gear and then, like you, the tears of fear and frustration.
Then I will have weeks where I feel very good and I can kick the anxiety to the curb.............
As the saying goes "The Only Thing to Fear Is Fear Itself".
Bless you my friend,
