welcome yeah  

 xanax as needed is helpful

learn new ways of calming and relaxing yourself, long walks are relaxing

why are you anxious?

Thank you for replying - I sometimes get anxiety or just feeling anxious when i am alone but i can usually just talk myself out of it.  I haven't felt like this for about 7 years but 7 years ago, I knew why.  Right now, everything in my life is great except for the way I feel.  Have you ever felt that way and just not known why????  I know 1/2 of me is worried about WHY and for right now, it is consuming me.  Taking long walks is a great idea.  Thank you so much.  The chest pain is constant for the most part and very uncomfortable and then I will start to have a panic attack, cry for like 30 minutes and then be ok for a bit and then it happens again!!!  Its scarey and really weird.

Harry4 - You mentioned that xanax is helpful when needed - I am fairly sensitive to medicines, would this medicine help only at night time or if you are having an attack, could you take this and still function?????

You should be able to take it during the day but if you are sensitive to meds then try the night time and see your reaction and then you should be able to gauge how it will go during the day
Most do function quite well on a daily dosage even at 2 a day
Please let us know how you make out

Thank you howlyncat - I appreciate it - I am feeling a little better each day that goes by - I have been taking my zanax every night to get me some sleep - I have noticed you can't fight anything without rest and nutrition!!!!  Thank you and i will keep you updated!

You are welcome and as I said in other post I learnt that the hard way went to 88 lbs tube fed not fun
Anxiety and stress make me not eat and I would go literally for days with NOTHING ( am not suggesting this ) and I have not got an eating disorder I just didnt want to eat...but then my teen said if you dont eat I wont not good so now I eat a lot of small healthy snacks daily and it does help so does the sleep
Sleep deprivation is very hard on a/p ppl and makes the disorder even worse
I am glad the meds are working and I am assuming they would help during the day as well......Can you drink Hot Milk?? I ask as it has a natural ingredient when heated is activated and I have it everynight with my sleep meds and it feels all nice and cozy and warm going thru your body a natural way to help the sleep come ......
If I dont take a sleep aid it works almost as good .........you can put cinnamon or a bit of chocolate in it for taste

Please do keep us posted and glad you have become an active member on the forum
Great to have you aboard


Normal ( other mod) was here visiting in December and I had been telling her for mths prior it worked WELL
I made a believer out of her .....and now she drinks it too and she is med free by choice .......
It wont kill ya so maybe give it a shot as well .....Let me know if ya try it ......
