I just wanted to come on here and give some encouragement to whomever may need it. Four months ago my anxiety (panic disorder) was so bad it was a daily struggle for me to even get out of bed and make it to school( and I only go two days a week). Often times I would leave early because my anxiety was so bad. I couldn't go anywhere just about. I felt like I was going to die or pass out AT least 30 times a day. I lost 15 pounds because I could barley eat. I spent 90% of my day in bed. My point being it was pretty bad... But this month my life has changed for the better. It all started in the end of November I kept getting progressively better and better. Now it's January and I feel free. Now, I'm not saying I'm 100% anxiety free, but I can almost say I feel back to normal. I'm going to movies and concerts and school with no trouble at all, I've atarted to drive again... I even went on a few dates and now am in a relationship. I never thought I would ever get out of the slump I was in. I really thought I would be the way I was for the rest of my life. But now I know I won't - I know my anxiety will go away fully one day. And if you work at it, yours will too. What helped me was breathing techniques, therapy - both group and individual and fluoxitine and hydroxyzine. I also journaled and did. Lot of positive self talk.
I know you guys can do it too! Hang in there. There is a light at the end of the tunnel. I wish ALL of you the best of luck. If you need a chat or have questions - feel free to message me or comment.
