I'm new to this support group and just wanted to get some advice. I've been struggling with anxiety since I was 13. I'm 26 and have been on anxiety medications for a couple of years now. Dealing with this for over a decade I sometimes struggle to give myself a positive anchor thought or to believe that I'm actually going to be okay. I handle and cope with my anxiety well most of the time and I can say that is because of the medication. But sometimes I get so anxious for a few weeks, this happens a couple times a year. And this anxiety spree has been going on for a few days now. I don't want to leave my house or go to work. The anxiety is 24/7 from the moment I wake up to when I go to sleep. I have nightmares and wake up sweating. I feel like I can't get comfortable or relax. I just wanted to know what other people tell themselves to help push through it. How do you lift yourself up when your anxious? How do you calm your anxious mind? What do you tell yourself when your anxiety is telling you that you can't? When you are in the middle of a panic attack what do you tell yourself to help put you at ease? Send help!
They don't pay attention to what you ask for. I said 50 miles and they are giving me guys from 300 miles or more. I can't do that. They get the money and time wasted. Guess I will get 6 cats and become crazy cat lady!
