Anxiety tips to cop

Posted , 6 users are following.

I am a 34 year old woman and I believe I suffer from anxiety and panic attacks. I used to be able to talk myself out of these when I would recognize them coming on, recently that is not the case. I was in the ER because of a bad anxiety attack, I thought I was having a heart attack as well as maybe a stroke becaise of the symptoms i was having. But test proved that was not the case. I am starting to think it has manifested into health anxiety as well, any symptoms I have I feel they are leading to something horrible. I have anxiety about taking meds to help me when I am in a severe anxiety attack. I know it sounds crazy. I was hoping someone had tips that helped then overcome anxiety or if anyone has tried a mood stabilizers to help? I would appreciate any help.
