Hey all..

Considering what I originally went through with my first anxiety attack, and all the other little things, I think I'm starting to hold up ok. I've had a really good day today, been pretty positive and generally happy. I've done some thinking, and discovered the problems that caused my anxiety attack, and it has made me feel MUCH better to know what they are... I just tried to think about how my sub conscious has been behaving for the past few years, and that gave me all the answers I needed.

Now I'm working hard to overcome my fears, face reality a bit more, and learn to be myself again without worrying what people may think, and without worrying myself with the things I used to!

I'm glad to say after the hell I went through, and with all the symptoms and feelings of being doomed and what not, I am feeling much better now.

I think you have to be ready to look into your sub conscious behaviors as it might be a bit startling if you are new to the condition...

This is not to say my anxiety or panic disorder has completely gone, sometimes I still get waves of anxiety or panic.. especially at night when trying to sleep.. but over all, things are looking up! Stay positive people, hang in there, you can get through this, you have to be strong!

Thanks for reading!

One other thing that has helped me... READING! Things that aren't negative of course, reading is pretty good for anxiety so I have discovered. It helps you concentrate on what you're reading, and helps your mind focus on something instead of letting random thoughts just race around, and then getting panic attacks.

Find something you are interested in, or want to know about, and read about it!. Books are good also!

I read some articles last night on some things I wanted to learn about, and it really calmed me down, and made my mind feel refreshed all day today!
....and one last thing, try to avoid depressing movies! I watched a really depressing movie the other night.. I didn't know it was going to be depressing... it sent me spiraling into anxiety and panic...... it was horrible!!!

That is really good news to hear that you are getting a grip on your anxiety. I too was able to gain a grasp on my anxiety after figuring out what was triggering it. Keep up the good work.
