letting everyone down

Posted , 4 users are following.

I thought I was getting better with my anxiety, it had been months since I suffered really badly. Since Sunday its like I'm back where I started and I don't know what's caused it. I'm having to take a stronger dose of my meds and even that doesn't feel like its touching me. My thoughts are out of control. Does anyone have some coping mechanisms they could share?

    Hello, i use deep breathing excercises alot! I also do yoga every morning i meditate almost every night. You could try those, i also take all natural Gaba pills from bioclinic you can buy them on Amazong for 40 or so u.s dollars.

    Also that's just how anxiety works i hadn't had a panic attack for a year or so until about a week ago and then i suffered the worst one to date, You probably are not letting anyone down and you are just being hard on yourself for no reason. But i understand just try to talk to yourself and focus alot on breathing when you feel anxious, it does pass you just have to believe that. I still have out of control thoughts alot i have been with the same man for 4 years and i get regular std checkups. If i even get one single pain boom i have cancer. That's just how it is for me but i try to stay busy and focus my energy on other things life is just too short.

    Well goodluck and i hope you find peace within yourself.

    Thought I'd let you know I'm in exactly the same position as you right now. I was about to post a blog pretty identical. I'm just trying to distract myself, but it's frustrating when that doesn't work. Hope the meds kick in soon. It's frustrating taking medication when it doesn't make a difference.

    Deep breathing, walking, playing games in my android or PC and watching comedy tv shows, I'm planning to buy a MT bike so I can get a bit of exercise at night because my anxiety is worse at night.

    Thanks for the ideas, i don't know what brought it on this time and it was totally not expected and I think that's what has made it worse. I tired boxersize yesterday to see if that would help but as soon as I got to bed I started panicking again. I listen to guided mindful meditation to help get me to sleep which does help. I just want it to go away sad
