    I use to be like this! I feared there was something wrong with my heart after having palpitations it caused massive anxiety and panic attacks I really know what you are going through! I thought I was going to die, this was over 10 years ago when I was 24 and I still get the heart palpitations to this day and they don't bother me one bit now! , I'm still alive now! All that worrying and anxiety (Trust me I was in a right state for about 6 months) I learned how to control my anxiety and my thoughts. I still suffer from GAD but no where what I was 10 years ago! I'm happily married, I have a son I have been on aeroplanes abroad I've done a lot of stuff and I haven't let anxiety get in the way! Take care sweetheart your not going to die! Learn to breath properly long deep breath in hold then let it out again keep repeating this works wonders for me

    Hi,As a sufferer from anxiety since my childhood& now 60!I can. relate to how you're feeling.Firstly you will not die.Have you tried reflexology? Lavender oil is also very good.Keep thinking lots of positive thoughts.How old are you? Do you have any family member who you can talk to? Happy Christmas& deep breaths when you're having a hard time.regards Amanda
