    Relax keep calm I have the same as you I've had it for 9 years I find that breathing methods help a little bit best thing to do is keep calm and not panic when it happens I suffer panic attacks because I struggle to keep calm

      I try my best to keep calm. But i really cant believe its anxiety. These symptoms i experience omg unbelievable. I take xanax but really its not working. Im fr Jamaica and this culture we r not use to this disorder. So its very hard.

    Try breathing into a paper bag. It stabilizes your breathing.

    Force yourself to do something that needs doing. At one point I couldn't even take the rubbish out because of the crippling anxiety.

    I met little targets bit by bit and began to feel better but they will always be there. I look forward to the good days
