hi so ive bin dealing with Panic disorder? for about 6 or 7 years, regular feelings of irrational anxiety, bizzare bodily feelings that can quite often trigger panic attacks? they spiral out of control because of these irrational thoughts, i always feel as though something aweful is going to happen to me. im constantly on edge and it doesnt help because im quite a tall chap and already v-slim so the weight just falls of me because im constantly nervous.
literally anything new or out of the ordinary can make me nervous, im not talking about a loaf of bread or silly things like that but trips out for the day, a doctors appointment, an evening meal out or even a trip to a friends house can make me feel not good, i dont understand it i have a brilliant life lovely family and girlfriend, we have the perfect little girl but this continues to affect it, i did heavily use cannibis5-7 years ago and i know it can be linked but what can i do to stop it im afraid ive broken something inside 4 ever. any body who can shed some light or just wants a discussion about stuff im really keen to talk about it with someone who knows or maybe i can help you with something ive dealt with
 
cheers x

Hi Jurassic,

And welcome to Healingwell. We have alot of loving and supportive folks all trying to live with a/p in their lives. I was just wondering if you were taking any meds to help your panic? I have a chronic health issue myself and developed anxiety related to my illness about 2 years ago. Thru therapy and the occasional help of my Xanax i have been able to stop it in its tracks.

Just wondering if you have seen a therapist or are on any meds? I think therapy really helped me alot and if you haven't seen one yet, I highly recommend it. Good luck!

Hello and Welcome to HealingWell.  There is a free online program for CBT.

Cognitive-behavioral therapy is based on the idea that our thoughts cause our feelings and behaviors, not external things, like people, situations, and events. The benefit of this fact is that we can change the way we think to feel / act better even if the situation does not change.

Here is the link for the online program:

the Mood GYM: http://moodgym.anu.edu.au/welcome

This program does take hard work and dedication but most members that have used it find it has helped them deal with their anxiety.

Take care and again welcome.

Sounds like your anxiety has gotten out of control. It's affecting your life everyday. Most of us, if not all of us, have been there. Something in your life is triggering these physical and mental symptoms. You should begin a journal. Write in it daily and put your symptoms, feelings, thoughts in it. If something works on your anxiety, then write it down. If something doesn't, add that. Journal writing can be therapeutic and it's a way to learn more about what's going on with your body.

The symptoms you're experiencing are trying to tell you something. Something is not right. Something is bothering you. I have no doubt that you will discover what is causing the stress and anxiety. In the meantime, acknowledge the anxiety. Stay calm and tell yourself that these symptoms are harmless. Lastly, keep an eye on your thinking or what you're telling yourself throughout the day. Negative thoughts must be gently discarded and replaced with positive ones. Let us know how you're doing!
