i seem to have a good few weeks and then the smallest thing sets me off and i am back to square one. Just like 4 weeks ago i thought "i am rehabilitated, i feel fine" but then i got some fluey thing and was scared that the sickness i felt was due to anxiety and that i was getting ill again, and ever since i have had a few panic attacks. Also i just feel generally sick or unsetteled a lot, and frustrated and depressed. Does anyone else feel like this? Like sick a lot of the time? Will this ever go away completely? Because i am starting to loose faith.

DONT loose faith my friend
WE all have setbacks BUT that does not mean we give up and give in to this DD we continue on fighting it on a daily basis and we win good days and lose as well BUT the main thing to do is to keep the FAITH

Boxcastle, please don't lose faith.  As Lyn said, we all have setbacks but we have to be able to rally and come back from those setbacks.  No matter how hard it is and I know it's hard - I've dealt with setbacks just like so many of our members here.  Just keep coming here to vent and get some support from us, that's what we are here for - to help each other.  Although the anxiety and panic may never completely go away, we can't lose faith.  Hang in there - it will get better!  Keep posting and we will help you get through this.
Take care,

YES that is the faith I am talking about here what is inside of you
Fight with all you have and when you sometimes think you have no more to give reach into yourself and find the faith in self to get up and fight more
Get frustrated angry at this DD we know and for what it can do to you ...if you let it continually....you I know have the faith in yourself and I have faith you will get thru this my friend I really do
I have had so many setbacks but I REFUSE to let this monster win it nearly took me and all I had made of self once ya know I was so bloody depressed and down a hole I never thought I would be able to climb outta BUT thru the faith of the fight I KNEW I had to get out again for me and for my daughter and for my peace of mind
YOU will do it
I know you can.......
Great words of wisdom above
Take care

Boxcastle, I do know what you mean, sometimes it gets soo very tiring to fight, but every time we do we get stronger..keep trying, keep working at it!! It may never go away entirely but it will certainly become less and less until
most days you don't even notice it is there (and can even have a chuckle at it !! I certainly do !!)
Keep fighting my friend (hugs)

When i was first diagosed i thought to myself ok in a few this wil be over n i wil be ck to normal no anxiety attacks or feeling bad ever again. Slowly i realised my fears weren't going and this condition was something i was going to live with. Im now gradually learning to live with anxiety, I havn't had an attack for ages bt i do some really dodgy moments and afew sleepless nights. Its like the better u get the more hope u hav of never having to deal with anxiety again, however wen things get stressful i know im still going to get anxious i just hope im able to deal with tht anxiety.

(hope this makes sense found it hard to explain myself)

Dear Boxcastle,

You are not alone my friend.  We all go through what you are going through.  Things look good and we want to forget that anxiety ever existed but something tringgers it and it is back with us.  We have the power to keep our faith and believe that we will make it ok again.

Faith is a firm belief in something for which there may be no tangible proof; complete trust; opposite of doubt. We have felt good before and have overcome our anxiety and we will continue to do it again and again..............that is our faith.  We believe in ourselves.  I  believe in you.  (((((((((((HUGS)))))))))))))

'Boxcastle' have you ever read the book 'Living with IT' by Bev Aisbett - this book has been such a help to me over the years..it's light hearted, has cartoons, but most of all a complete understanding of panic attacks and how to overcome them :)
