Hello and welcome to HealingWell. You have come to a great place to find support. I have had anxiety for 28 years and what has worked best for me is talking with my therapist, my family and taking medication. I also use meditation and music to help me stay focused.

Remember you have anxiety, anxiety does not have you.
I have had more good days then bad days but it does seem I will have a spell of bad days and then things look better again.

Kindly,

Kitt

thank you for your response. i am scared to get on meds i have been trying to fight this naturally because most anti anxiety meds have side affects of being suicidal. and i also.dnt want to walk around like a.zombie for the rest of my life. has the meds ever make u feel like that?

No I have not felt like that at all from the antianxiety medications. Some of the Antidepressants come with warnings expecially for person under 18.

I do understand why you would want to try it on your own but sometimes we need to accept help one way or another.

If you had to go to the ER, mari, I would strongly suggest you see a therapist to talk about your anxiety.

Kindly,
Kitt

I have had anxiety and panic attacks since 2007 and I know exactly how you feel and it can be scary and overwhelming at times but I can tell you it will get better. When mine first started, I felt like you descibed all the time for a long while, which I was pregnant too do the hormones did not help. But I did get much better and I started getting out more and even if I were scared I would keep doing it and it made me feel stronger to know that it was all in my head and that nothing was going to happen to me, I was not going to die, faint, have a heart attack, lose my mind, or any of those things. I still have some bad days sometimes but everyone does. Try to be happy and stay away from stress situations as much as possible. Stress is a big trigger for those unwanted feelings. Try to exercise some, start by doing a little a day and and eat a healthy diet. Drink plenty of water and make sure to include your electrolytes. You will get much better.

hello,
your story sounds very much like mine. after i had my son i started feeling like i was in my own little weird world and i did not know how to explain it to anyone. i went to doc after doc and they said you have post partom, i kept saying no i dont i feel fake like iam in a video game or something. well anyways many years later i went to a therapist and he helped me greatly. he let me know that what i had is normal and many anxiety suffers have that side affect. it is called depersonalization, you can google it. basically its a side affect from anxiety that makes you feel like your in a dream like state. i still deal with it to this day. i also become agoraphobic from it for 6 months before i knew what i had, which means i kept myself in the house and would not leave for anything. i was normal one day and the next i couldnt go to work, i couldnt even drive, i felt like i was going to dye all the docs were lying to me and something was wrong. no matter what anyone told me i thought for sure something else was wrong and i was going to die, pass out, have a seizure, something. but guess what in the end i really was wrong. i educated myself on it, went to my therapist, ans talked my moms head off, (to tell you the truth i dont know how she dealt with me everyday, i would tell her the same thing....mom if i die i want you to know how i feel cause something is wrong) by the way iam 27 i still have anxiety and deal with it everyday, i can get myself so worked up over nothing, and i have really bad side effects from my attacks. but you know what. i get through them mostly with the help of talking to my mom and her telling my everything is ok its just anxiety. so really truly trust me i know you can do it. but i also know i will deal with this for the rest of my life....and thats ok, because i always remember no matter how high or bad the aniety get...remember its always will go down and away. i do take zoloft, and zanax for attacks. and you know what i never wanted to be on meds, but like my doc said....you can suffer or suck it up and take something to control it.
