overcome anxiety

Posted , 4 users are following.

hello everyone,I just wanted to say that it's possible to overcome your anxiety, after nearly suffering with it for 2 years I had given up the hope that I will ever overcome it,I was suffering from internal fear of almost everything and I couldn't even talk about it to anyone I had always had the fear of panic attack or fainting and these thoughts would run throughout my mind whole day

I am just 20 and doing graduation I even thought of quitting the course of 4 years ; one day I thought to think differently as like a child who are free,who don't think what will happen.I kept saying to mumuself it okay to do anything we want in life,and I accepted my anxiety .I finally realised that anxiety is a mental disease and nothing else and I was able to overcome it bcoz I stopped thinking abt it: I got my life back and I started living as I useto be. as free and as confident as I was bcoz it was me and sometimes the situation causing my anxiety and nothing else.

for last 5 months I haven't got a panic attack its not that I don't get anxious I do but I have accepted it aa a feeling nothing else be free and overcome ur anxiety and get ur life back just keep saying it's okay and u r always there for yourself

    Hello shamika

    Such good news that you have found a way to control your anxiety.  Yes!  It is possible, but sometimes the anxiety/stress comes from "outside influences" such as bad neighbours, bad living conditions, illness of someone close to you and so on.  In those sort of cases the source of anxiety  has to be "removed" before you can begin to feel calm.  I believe when it is "health anxiety" and there is nothing truly wrong with you (just your imagination) then you CAN train your brain to overcome it.  Anyway, Congratulations and Well Done!  It will give some comfort to others suffering at present.

      Reassuring to read this, im currently going through very bad time for the past 13 weeks, ive had paroxetine came off it over 2 weeks ago side effects bad... and the the negative thougths are back. I feel like im fighting with my head saying im ok, i saw a counsellor on Friday who said ive got to push the thought away.

      Im currently highly anxious and agitated i think this is due to the backlash from the paroxetine. (which i would never recommend)

      I find hope in reading this you have wrote.
