Hi, I'm a teacher in my 20's and I PTSD so naturally enough I suffer from anxiety......I take xanex which doesn't really help and I've tried counselling which didn't really help that much either....Being a teacher I really need to have some control over the anxiety, I can't exactly leave the room to wait until I calm down..... I shake a lot and can't even write on the board because I can't hold on to the pen! Has anyone any usefull ways of coping with this...I'll try most things....I hope someone might be able to help please?

Hi Dezcarte,

I struggle with anxiety at different times during the year and I work in an office/court setting. When it gets really bad, I sometimes wait until I can be alone and then vent. I feel like it is trapped energy that needs to be let out. Regular exercise certainly helps and vigorous exercise when there is a harsh buildup is a great solution. Perhaps any breaks you have at school can be used to do breathing exercises or maybe go to your car and turn the music up loud and just growl! Whatever works for you -- just remember that when you do find something, you need to stay vigilant to catch the proper times for you to use a technique.

Best,
Skirbal

As per the aforementioned exercise: A (long enough) morning run, job, or brisk walk might prove to benefit you greatly for the entire school day! I know mornings can be full enough already but if it saves your sanity and your job you may find it well worth squeezing in :-) If your doc says it's okay.
Peace to you!

Hello Dezcarte - How r u today?

U can try Meditation - its helps u to develops the mind`s ability to stop anxiety at its source. Then u can go for PRANAYAM an old form of Yoga very quick in revealing our anxiety and depression. And also good sleep and good healthy foods r help us a lot. Thanks.
