Joshua pretty much has it right. There have been countless of times I have been getting ready for work and felt super edgy. To the point of standing in my closet looking at my work clothes and almost feeling paralyzed. Each and every time I slowly begin to get dressed and get ready for work. By the time I get to work I usually feel much better.
Anxiety thrives on attention and the more you give it the worse it tends to get. When you feel it come on don't fight it, just roll with it and continue with whatever it is you are doing or going to do....at least for me this almost always makes the feelings of anxiety go away much much quicker than if I were to focus on it or try to push it away
Pushing through the feelings of anxiety has many rewards in the form of victories over something that is trying to take away your quality of life. By allowing anxiety to alter what we do, will allow it to grow and and get more intense. By pushing through it..you will be amazed at how short the awful feelings will stick around and just how manageable anxiety can become...try doing this...you have nothing to loose except your quality of life...anxiety controls until we face these fears and continue with the task at hand....allow the anxiety to exist with little attention as possible and you will make great gains in recovery and anxiety management.....Best wishes....Wingman
Stop fighting your symptoms, tensing against how you feel, trying to push your symptoms away. Don't spend everyday going round in circles trying to figure it all out. This just adds more stress and anxiety to how you feel.
It is your desperation to rid yourself of how you feel that keeps your anxiety alive.
The less you fear your symptoms, the less they mean.
