Hi guys and girls I know how hard it is coping with anxiety but there is a way out I am nearly there I have my therapy tomorrow  so this will help even more ill tell you all what I did basically why my anxiety started was because I was in pain with my chest I had inflamed cartilage to the chest and the pain was immensely painful lasted around 5 week i went to hospital they said it was inflamed cartilage I had a chest x-ray day after wow the pain was even worse I went to my mums and I couldn't bare the pain any more so I went back to the hospital then turns out there was nothing wrong so I was dwelling on it thinking why is this happening nothing is wrong at all why am I in so much pain I phoned nhs 111 they said there sending an ambulance out to me at this point I was really down I felt weird in the ambulance it felt like I  wasn't me really mad I was there but I was just not if ya know what I mean some people might feel like this now get there blood tests ECG all fine then a  cupple  of days passed and I felt a pain in my left are like when a needle goes in your arm and you can feel it that Hurt bad the  I started getting headaches and just pains all over when I looked up all my symptoms all turned out been bad the worst you can think of and then as you do thinking about all of them stress kicks in panic attack blame my world tipped up side down I stayed in my room isolated my self from every 1 that killed me 2 weeks 24/7 not eating right lost a lot of weight I started going out about 3 week ago and this has helped me a lot keeping active is the key and my panic attacks have all gone nothing I listen to Thomas halls hypnosis CD if it wasn't for that I don't know we're I would be I'd be still having panic attacks there is a way out accepting that you have anxiety really helps it won't harm you its the was your body copes with stress and I'm not depressed anymore I  have my days but not as bad I wish you all the best if you need any reassurance I'm here I'll be here for a long time to come if it wasn't for the people on this Web site I wouldn't be better. I stayed up the other night till 2 in the morning talking some one out of a panic attack I would love to help more people I have helped a few out but I would love to be able to help more thank you so much

    So inspiring paul, im nearly out of my anxiety spell too. Its so impotant for other people who are just starting their anxiety journey to know there is a light at the end of the tunnel and not to come online and read horror stories! You're great

      Me too, but as i wrote on someone else's post; the most interesting people in this world have lived and died a few times in their life. Why dont you write a blog  on blogger or wordpress? Not have a school education shouldnt stop you from passing on your story smile. It was really positive and I enjoyed it. I'm sure many sufferers would benefit from it too.

    Hi Paul its great to hear your overcoming it and I know how you feel about helping people. Ive suffered in the past with bad depression and still have anxiety that I'm accepting now. Its great to speak to people on here that have had similar experiences and to know your not the only one. Keep up the good work with helping people.
