Deep breathing and guided meditations have helped me. Doreen Virtue has some really good ones. Also try to concentrate on something in nature or even a pet. That seems to help to calm me. Not having the energy to do anything else has given me time to read and pray. I am also going through the book Entering The Castle by Caroline Myss. That has also helped me to enter some parts of myself that needed to be brought to the surface, so that I can fully heal body, mind and spirit.
I have only ever had one actual anxiety attack, and I was pregnant at the time. What helped at that time was when I realized what it was, because my stepmom used to get them, I just cried it out and then started writing down everything that was on my mind, and came up with over a page and a half. My biggest reason for the fear was that I had miscarried my first pregnancy, so that was obvious, but I also had a whole lot of other stuff that I was carrying around inside and needed to let it out. I have found that writing has been therapeutic over the years.
This forum has helped me to not feel alone in my suffering, which hasn't even gone near the extent of so many of you. You are not alone! I pray that you will find peace.
May I join you other ladies in your email? I don't have a myspace page, but facebook. I will ask my son to set me up with a myspace page too.
