Where to begin. I was mostly laid back when I was younger. Until my father passed away at 50 when I was 24. I started getting anxiety attacks and turned to heavy drinking to cope. I'm 37 now. Been in and out of rehabs and now I don't drink. But my health anxiety is terrible. I get pains in my chest, heart skips beats all the time. I've been in and out of the cardiologist and emergency rooms all with nothing but them saying it's anxiety. Thanks to google, I keep thinking they missed something. I get dizzy and short of breath alot. Never passed out. I have a 3 year old daughter now who means everything to me but I'm scared I'm going to die almost every day of my life. I have good days sometimes through meditation and clear thought. This discussion has been good seeing I'm not alone because the worst part of anxiety is feeling alone. I do alot of reading that helps cope but I struggle alot. My hands get cold, sharp pains in my head, etc. Every week I think I have something else wrong with me. Anyone have any tips? Breathing and all that helps when anxiety is about a 5 out of 10. But when it's a full blown attack and heart skips beats, I'm petrified. Thanks for reading this to whomever is.
