Most of this is psycholoigical I guess, but doing some yoga and being vegetarian would surely bring you great benefits for your mind and body.
your under my watch now kristina lol.
Yes, I can totally relate. I'm 24 and my anxiety came from my first panic attack (which happened in the middle of the night). I thought I was having a heart attack and went to the hospital, but of course everything was 'ok' medically. Since then I have thought every pain or weird sensation I feel is some serious medical condition, like a heart attack, stroke, cancer or tumour! And that was only 6 months ago. My doctor also took about 4 months to properly diagnose me with having anxiety, so I've only just started treatment and seeing a psychologist!
I have days when almost every 5 minutes I have to reassure myself I'm not dying from some disease and it's just my anxiety.
I hope you are able to push past this!
i completely can relate to you . I am 25yrs old i have never had panic attacks until this feb. of this year i had my very first panic attack. i was so scared i thought i was going to have a heart attack. i have been taking xanax prn and went to see a psychologist for over 8 weeks. i am trying to get off the xanax though because i was really aiming for no med route. but at times when i feel anxious and felt like i am going to have another panic attack i have to take the medicine i just feel overwhelmed. i try really hard to not take the xanax especially my husband who wishes me to stop taking the xanax. i only take 1/2 tablet of .25mg when i have the feeling. right now is am still trying to find ways to get it under control. at least now i can accept that the symptoms that i have is from anxiety because at first i thought i was going to have an heart attack or blood clot. it does not help me that i am a nurse and know so much about when i have these symptoms. i agree with you, i didn't realize i was under a lot of stress until i had my first panic attack because i thought i was dealing my stress pretty well. hang in there and you are not alone.
