Anxiety ruling me forever???

Posted , 6 users are following.

Okay so I kind of think everything just sucks at the moment I'm 26 single parent to a beautiful toddler but this anxiety is taking over my life I never really suffer from major panic attracks a odd one here and there mainly when I'm at work. But i have the the same symptoms day in and day out non stop the feeling of chocking not being able to take a deep enough breath fast heart beat feeling detached from reality and not forgetting looking at people when I'm

Out wishing I never had this disgusting illness! I fill like I can't have a relationship cause I'm scared the "a" word will take over I look at my daughter and wish I could be a better mum and do stuff in the correct way with her instead of freaking out and tiring sad half way threw the day! I guess what I'm trying to say is will the "a" word be with me forever and control my life! Any suggestion on good books to try and control this please! Thanks guys smile

    Hopefully not. Hop fully sci nce will figure this out and fix it. Its definetly a mal function. Many of us raised kids with anxiety, probably most people. You will be ok. You will. The main thing you can ever do,is accept it, surrender to the attacks and do not ever feed into the symptoms or fears. Takes a lot of disipline and focus. Dont let it bully you. Learn mindfullness and meditation. Check your messages

    Anxiety surely makes our routine works stressful. Are you consulting any doctor? Please don't worry it can be managed with meds and therapy. 

    Also, try deep relaxation and progressive muscle relaxation exercises.

    Take care wink
