I am new to this site; I have had anxiety since I was 16. I am now 24. Today was a bad day. Real dizzy, tried to take a nap and I felt like I couldnt breath and my body would jerk and wake me up or I would have to gasp for air. I have PVC's. When I was younger I would always check my pulse to make sure my heart was beating or if I felt it was beating to fast. Than I would panic if I didnt think it was normal. I always get hot flashes and I used to worry all the time about my health and my mental state. I do not panic anymore, I just close my eyes and count to ten and try to relax. I figure I have it for 8 years, and I am okay so far, so I guess I will be. So when I start to feel horrible like today, I know it always goes away. I know I am rambling but the more you obsess about something the more it controls you. A very smart friend of mine recommended me watching this movie called "What the bleep to we know". And it makes since. Youre body can make you believe something that is not happening and that is why people like me have anxiety. Like for example. I kept getting these sharp pains in my head, I thought I was having a brain aneurysm or I had a tumor. Finally, I went to the emergency room and that did a CAT scan and told me everything was fine. They stopped because I knew that not was it was (Its mental) . It was me constantly thinking about it and obsessing about it. Which caused me to stress and caused other symptons. That is why I think I always went to the Dr... Because I though something was wrong with me. But I know nothing physical is wrong, it is mental and I have learned that if I can control the way I think that I might can control anxiety. Hoped this helps!

I'm trying to exercise daily. I was doing fairly well until I sprained my ankle 2 weeks ago but now I'm getting back on the horse. Today I walked over a mile with my arm weights that are about 22lbs total. I was out of shape and it was hard on my arms. I also did my 30 situps. I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
