    Did you move for you're significant other?

    Did you move away from family? Obviously you know what your trigger is, now you need to find out why living in you're new town is the goal, a job maybe? If you were content before and moved for no reason maybe you should go back..

    But the world is a huge place and as people we are raised in a comfort zone, you need to realize that a life in one location isn't really a life, multiple artist who have to go on tours around the world deal with this and have talked about it until they realize they stepped out of their comfort zone and nothing bad happened. They're free to see the new sights

    You gotta change your mind of state about the world if you don't wanna move back home, the world is a scar place sometimes but you're not gonna die from adventuring out unless you do some stupid stuff but I don't think you will, I'd love to talk more and try to help out with what's causing your anxiety over this new town or not being in you're home town

    The same thing happened to me I did a big move as well and four months later started having anxiety attacks. I been living here going on 2yrs and is moving back next summer. I tried everything to stay and still not liking this place, sometimes we find everything a problem around us until we go elsewhere and then we start to realize that there really was nothing to complain about. Some places take time to get use to and some places you never can. I want to go back to being normal so I made a choice to move back home to see if that helps. I had enough of this constant fear. I can honestly say I am doing better and part of it is knowing that I am heading back home. I recommended Joel Osteen to someone else, I listen to his service in my car and on Sundays. His messages helped me and is continuing to while I try to fight off this anxiety.

    Hi. I'm so sorry you are going through this. I am too! I ache just to be my old self... I can't take meds because I've develope a phobia/ fear of meds so I have to seek other ways to calm me. Try breathing it helps a lot, I do a lot of praying and reading books the Bible ... I try to hurry n change any negative thoughts to a postive . I stay busy. I to right now can't be alone I go to work and then have to go to my moms until my husband or kids get home. I eat very clean, no caffeine no sodas no energy drinks no chocolate I think it helps somewhat ... I play candy crush!!! lol I play it as soon as I feel it coming or negative thinking i play it to keep my mind busy... just keep working n find what works best for you. You will start to see good days !

      thanks Monica,it's nice to know that I am not struggling on my own. I would do anything just to be myself again. it's after hitting me hard. I fear of being alone. I even hate leaving the house. I use to love walking. now I stuck in the house in case I go walking and a panic attack happens.😢
