Hello Everyone! 

I am new here and this is my first post. With all of the shootings and attacks around the world i am terrifyed that when i leave the house i will be attacked. I currently live in Canada and i am living with constant fear and my anxiety telling me something bad will for sure happen to me. I try and keep telling myself it is just my anxiety talking but it doesnt work . Also, i find myself on google alot which is not helping at all. 

Does  anyone have any advice for me? smile

Thank you in advance.

    I have some advice!

    Stop googling things.

    And remember that you're more likely to be murdered by a family member than be the victim of a terrorist attack. Statistics!.

    Please talk to your doctor, so that you can get some help. Love Tess

      aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaagh so you're still googling!!!!!!!!!!!!

      What on earth do you think mace spray will do in the extremely unlikely event that you're part of a terrorist attack????????

      Concentrate on reality, please. Do you think that if anyone in the Twin Towers had mace spray on them when 9/11 happened, the Towers wouldn't have crumbled????????

      I know mace would be useless I would never carry it on me. I was just saying that pepper spray is illegal here so that is all we have here is mace. But your right that if something were to happen the pepper spray/mace would be useless and harm innocent people.

    I am the same way. Anywhere I go I look for exits right away and I'm always watching my back. It's scary just going out to eat or running to Walmart. I feel like I'm not safe no mater where I go! But I can't stay at home every time my family goes out or we have something to do so I literally go and look around the whole time and rush and hurry and try to hide that I'm having a melt down inside

    Canada is safer than the Usa and has a good defence minister. So I should not worry and try to live a normal life because you  cannot predict when a death will occur. Especially yours or anyone else's for that matter.

    Farb gel is a visible and invisible dye you spray on criminals so they can be identified but most methods of stopping criminals have to be justified and accountable

      On the 7th July 2007 there were terrorist attacks in London. The people targeted were on underground trains and some were on a bus.

      There were many fatalities - including the 4 suicide bombers.

      How, in the name of sanity, could farb gel or mace spray have made any difference in thatg situation?
