Hi All

I am going to make this as short as possible. I was always/most of the time a happy person, loving life and doing things that mattered to me. One day I go to bed after a very stressful day at work and I have this panic feeling almost like something really terrible was going to happen to me. I thought the worst, thought I was going to die, thought I was crazy, you name it. The next day I get up everything was fine, on the way to work I remembered how I felt the night before and suddenly get panic attacks trough out the whole day, probably one every few minutes. Does this sound familiar? Well that was ANXIETY according to a health practitioner I have seen.

I believe anxiety is all in your head. I didn’t need medication to cure it. I decided this is it no more panic attacks, my panic attacks stopped right away but still felt anxious for a long time. I did Yoga to calm me down and really helped (don’t expect to get results right away though). You are the only one who can cure your anxiety and panic attack, you are not crazy or going to die or what ever, it is just a condition that you can get over, just learn to relax.

I haven’t had a panic attack for more than two years now and I only feel anxious and stressed like normal people now. Hope you all feel better soon

Congratulations for overcoming PAD! That's awesome!
The reality is though, everyone's condition is different and some people cannot function without the help of medication and therapy. Also depends on what the cause was for your anxiety. If you have been thru a traumatic experience, you will need therapy and medication to deal with the anxiety symptoms. It's not easy for some's not just "in their heads". Some have health problems, some are in very stressful environments and simply changing their thinking pattern is not going to "fix" their anxiety issues.

The thing always happens that you really believe in, and the belief in a thing makes it happen.

According to The National Institute of Mental Health, over 40 million Americans suffer from anxiety disorders, almost three times the amount of people who suffer from clinical depression.
Many mental disorders fall under the category of Anxiety. OCD, PTSD, Phobias and GAD are categories that fall under Anxiety Disorders.

People with chronic illnesses and people with terminal illnesses have anxiety. It is not something everyone can deal with on their own.

I am glad to read you have conquered your anxieties.
