    Hi jeffrey , sorry to hear you are Not feeling well , and have ing a lot of anxiety ,

    What job do you do ? , when can you trace the attacks back to , ? Have you seen or read something or has someone said something to you that has suddenly made you feel

    Ike you are having a panic attack , in order to try and sort this put you neeed to see if anything has triggered these feelings ! Sometimes we put things to the back of our minds and subconsiously they can resurface with anxierty type problems

    Have you got any worries or problems that some one could help you with , ? , are you being bullied ? , there are lots of help groups you can get help from if you want to to someone , try the Samaritans , you can ring them

    P you further , , has your doctor run blood tests , and done you a general mot , for your health ? , whats your diet like ?

    Awaiting your reply

    Helen

It is a scary thing to deal with. Everyday i wake up in fear and i cry alot cause i just wanna go back to the old me. Not this. But dont let it beat you. And thw vwst thing is dont go on medication cause i regret it. Ive gotten worse. I think only yourself can beat the anxiety. I twll this myaelf everyday sad i always think im gonna die. At night i cant sleep cause im constantly worrying is something gonna happen to me? But its not! When people see me they cant believe i suffer with anxiwty. Surpisingly a lottt of people do. But we cann beat it cause its all in our heads. Were 21 right so us to have an heart attack is like nill chance. Dont worry. We only have one life so lets live it and dont let this ruin our livws

    Hi

    Ive been dealing with anxiety and depression for many years now, and it all started when I was 20. Dont really know what started it, always been a bit of a worryier but nothing like that. Started with anxiety on and off then depression. I tryed to deal with it without going on medication for quite a few months. But in the end had to on medication. I did help me a lot but everytime I try to come of it, I seem to get ill again.

    I think if you can get better without pills it would be great, I read somewhere that omega 3 helps and also which sounds weird is gardening, aparrenty scientists have found a bacteria in soil that when handled can increase the brains serotonin. You need serotonin to help the brain function properly.

    When you have a panic try and calm down telling yourself that panicing wont change anything, it wont make things any better, easyier said than done I know.

    If you do decide to go on medication, the first 2 weeks you take them you will probally feel a little worse than before, but after that they should slowly make you feel better.

    Hi jeffery36 ...

    I had panic attacks once at a stressful point in my life. Beta blockers were the answer, I had an ECG first to check there was nothing wrong with my heart ... that in itself is very easy, not stressful and sets your mind at rest.

    Then Beta Blockers can just tackle the short-term issue. Now, and long-term I would really advocate a look at your lifestyle ... eat properly, sleep properly, drink properly (not too much alcohol sugar or caffeine), get exercise (start just walking and build up to a routine: get fresh air and burn stress! ... gardening counts). If you try and manage the stress out of your work and don't get far enough, get an exit plan!!!

    Hope that helps!?

    Cheers, R.

    Hello Jeffrey,

    These kind of things can happen when you are in a harsh period, even if you are not conscious of it. The point is to try to find why... Have you tried the online life coaching ? It helped me a lot when I had my exams period. Even if everything was alright in my life and I had never failed in my studies, I had this kind of total irrational fear I couldn't avoid. I think I found a coach on your24hcoach. Have you talked about it to your family and friends ? It is important to be supported.

    Well, I am sure you will get better soon! Good luck
