Hey I'm not sure why? It just pops up out of the blue!! And that's terrible I hope your feeling ok now? I think I better go find something to do instead of sitting on the Internet on my phone, I think when I'm resting that makes it pop up? But when I'm busy I feel okay... I hate anxiety :( really ***** hey! Wish I could be out partying with my friends but of course I'm home with miserable anxiety :(:( literally ruining everything

I know how you feel!  I basically never left my house for the past year unless it was for work, groceries, or the doctor.  It's a miserable way to live.  Are you on any medication?  The best thing I have found to do while feeling really anxious...and this is going to sound dumb, but it was recommended by a therapist....is to color for a half hour or so in a coloring book.  Give it a try...it usually helped me enough to calm down on my really bad days.

I hope so, too.  It was the one thing that diverted my attention to something else.  I would usually start my morning out doing that for a half hour.  The other thing that really helped me was to take a long bath.  I'd turn out the lights, light some candles, and if I was really having a hard time trying to distract my mind, I'd bring my laptop in the bathroom with me and watch an episode of a good TV show.  I realize it sounds strange, but when you're really anxious you find what works for you and you go with it.
