I'm surre I'm not the only one that feels like thhis..

It seems like I do good for a while and then...Boom!! It hits me again. I haven't taken any meds (I only take ativan) in months. I keep on having all the horrible symptoms of anxiety that just don't go away. I've had death on my mind all day...it's rough, just when I think I'm getting better it seems like it hits me again, Can anyone relate?

I can certainly relate. For myself I'm guilty of being the type of person who stops doing things that help me relax and feel better once I stop suffering from anxiety or what ever other issue is bothering me which usually leads to it resurfacing. I always tell myself that just because I've had a good couple days, weeks, or months doesn't mean I should stop working at it, but I usually do and that's when I tend to slip.

I know what you mean. I think the most important part when you're feeling like that is to not think about it. The more we dwell on the fact that we're not feeling "at our best" the more we're going to stress ourselves out and make matters worse.

I know, but it's so hard not to think about it!! I'm way better than I used to be but I still have issues. lol

its not real. youre going to live today, tomorrow and the days after that. its weird right? bc it feels real. but theres no cause for that feeling. its inappropriate anxiety. there is no real danger. but youre a really creative person. so you kinda ran away with the emotions and feelings. supposedly, emotions only last 30 seconds. after that its all reruns with your brain trapezing its way to the circus. what you need to do is relax and tell your brain what to feel. face towards the closest body of water (thats where the good energy is). take short breaths in long ones out. exhale your anxiety and fears. then say: this has never hurt me, it has never hurt anyone else and it never will. i know what it is and it means nothing.

Thank you for the nice words...I tell myself that all the time. At night when I go to bed I always have bad thoughts and the next night when it happens again I think to myself...well I woke up this morning!! It's just hard to deal with at times.

I've never experienced panic/anxiety attacks before but think this is what I am going through. They hit all of a sudden, I get flushed, cry, nervous, nauseated,  shakes and feel like I can't breathe :(

Oh yes, sounds like anxiety to me. There is a website that lists tons of symptoms and those are all symptoms.
