      sorry for such a late reply happy new year! and these past three days i have been forcing myself to sit through my anxiety or do things that make me anxious because only way to over come stuff and it feels so good when you do it and it ends and you realize you are completely okay and nothing happened you just want to keep going. EVeryday you get anxious to do things but always gotta rememeber you were okay every other time so you can do this too. Im dealing with vertigo at the oment and it makes me anxious cause im swaying back and forth or when i walk i cant walk straight thats my problem rn ontop of anxiety sad

      Aw thank you you are doing great believe me I overcamed anxiety in 2009 and I have 2010 2011 and 2012 without anxiety I was the most happy ever but unfortunately it came back at the end of 2012sad and it was so strong I didn't know how to cope with it on that time so I let it ruin my days with panic attacks fears anxiety it was only getting worse but at the end of this year in Nov I realized how my life was I was not happy I realized I need to do something about this problem and I start to face my fears and anxiety i told my self i didn't die In 2012 I m not going to die now because I m facing my fears is not comfortable but I have to do it in order to live happy again when you feel vertigo breathe deep I know is hard not to focus on your vertigo but try to listen to a relaxing music and keep breathing deep it goes away you will see for depersonalized do something that make you focus on the present play card. Play a game something like that I m happy I m not alone with this you are no alone we have each other Good luck never give up

    When I suffered this I would swallow and my ears would click and I would then try and yawn it seemed to help me. that was fifty odd years ago.

    Happy New Year 2017
