Hi, i am 32. i feel very sacred. in publc places (like in the bus, bank) i feel everyone looking only me, and also feel they are speaking, commenting about me. so that i never want to go out. i feel fear always for everything. i didn't go to job also for this problem. what should i do? what is the remedy for this problem? please help me.
I also suffer from severe anxiety/panic disorder. To me, this sounds like you've gone so long not dealing with the anxiety that it has turned into major social anxiety. Breathing techniques are GREAT for calming down at home. Belly breathing. Tons of info on the net. I'd go seeing a therapist.
We have a great anxiety forum here at Medhelp if you would also like to post your question there.
I agree with the above poster. Think about getting into therapy to help deal with your anxiety and get to the root of why you have it. There are also meds that can help but I usually recommend giving therapy a try first.
I just finished reading your comments. I agree with the suggestions that
kush_kitten and remar have given you. I also recommend seeing a
therapist to find out what is causing this anxiety. There's usually a root
cause (s). I sympathize with you. Perhaps you could check on the
anxiety forum on Medhelp that remar mentioned. I went through a
depression a number of years ago and suffered through a number
of panic attacks and major anxiety. I recovered with a combination of
medication and group counselling. I found deep breathing very helpful
too. What I do is I inhale, hold for 3 secs, and exhale. I do this about
four to five times. I have done deep breathing and continue to do deep
breathing whenever I might feel anxious. I'm a retired teacher and I
also taught my primary students this technique. I would try individual
counselling, rather than group counselling. That would probably be
more helpful to you at this point and less intimidating right now.
I wish you the best of luck. Feeling anxious is not a good feeling.
There is hope for recovery. The mind is a powerful thing. Blessings. Eve:)
