Hi all. I just wanted to check in. I wrote my opening post and haven't been able to get back in here. My Hubby has been keeping me semi busy in the yard. Buying me plants to start my garden. This is the first chance I've had to get back to ya'll. Thank you to all who responded. I talked to my husband about some things that I knew were bothering me, thinking it may help with the anxiety. I thought maybe my not talking was making me anxious. But I think I was wrong. He went to work this morning and I'm completely freaking out again. Like right now. I did some things around the yard yesterday and don't know if I did something to my foot or not, but the top of my foot, the skin felt all numb. Weird right? I think it's a bit better today, but it's still there. And I'm freaking out over it. It sounds so silly, I know, but all I keep thinking is "what's wrong with me to cause this". I wish this would all just stop. I did so well for so long. Why's it ALWAYS gotta come back!?!?? My hands are cold, I'm shaky, I can't breath...my muscles are all tense and my stomach is all screwed up. I 'm gonna be calling around for a therapist or something today. Wish me luck....

Don't you just hate when your feeling good, life is good, then the stupid anxiety has to intrude again. Do you have any type of anti anxiety med you might take to quiet this attack down some? If not, I hope you get on the phone today and either call your family doc or a therapist and see if you can't get some relief. We are always here for you.

Aahhhhh yes, Nanners has such a great point.  I too hate when everything seems really good and I try to just enjoy the moment and not worry about when, not if, the anxiety will rear it's ugly head again.

One of the best remedies for anxiety is to talk about it. Here's where good friends and family can come in. The old adage "A problem shared is a problem halved" comes into its own here, and while you may dismiss it as nonsense, it may surprise you how anxiety alleviating it can be to just talk to someone.

Do try to keep your breathing under control and call someone that you can just talk with, someone that you can tell how you are feeling.  Shed a few tears of anxiety and you will be surprised how that will let off some of the scary feelings you are having right now.  Most of all know you will be OK.  You are safe and you always have us to talk to.

You are family here.

Thanks guys:) Whenever I start to have an attack I call my Mom. Most of the time that in itself can help calm me down a bit. It may take a bit but it usually works. Hope everyone here is having a calm anxiety free day.
