      Hi Jenn. I so wish their was a cure cause anxiety in my opinion is the worst because nobody can see your symptoms but you feel everything. Seriously its taken control of our lifes. I just cant deal with it anymore im at that point where i dont even want to be alone anymore.

      Yeah Ive been at that point I'm 32 and I always have to be around someone because I feel like I'm going to die , or fall out or something , I'm always so scared something is going to happen to me health wise , I can't stand it , I'm at my breaking point , these anxiety symptoms are by far the worst thing ever , and nobody understands what you are going through , trying to explain to people is a waste of breath and very frustrating !! I just was this to all pass

      WoW i feel exactly like you do. This is by far the worst ever. Sometimes i think im not breathing and i freak out. Yea people dont understand what Anxiety is about its hard to explain they dont undertand. They think you are just faking the way you feel

      Yes or they have all the answers, they'll say things like just think positive , do this do that , I say if it was that easy I wouldn't be struggling or have anxiety, people reallyndont get it , and I started off with the heart palps and the tightening in my chest and choking sensation around my neck , then I graduated to the tingling and numb feelings throughout different parts of my body , face , tongue, fingers, toes , etc... Then graduated to these weird head sensations, minor and major headaches, and prickly feelinga, electrical shock feelings and warm and cold sensations, and the list goes on . anxiety is a beast , a force to be reckon with , its like fighting a attacker you can't escape from . its some serious sh$+ !!!

      I feel the same way! I have anxiety/depression and stress makes it worse. I also have I think IBS.. The hardest thing is the people around you blow it off and don't understand because on the outside we look fine. I've learned to control my anxiety as I started getting panic attacks. Something that happened in my life a few years ago triggered the panic attacks which are even worse. Sometimes I don't like being alone either. I hate it so much and wish I could get rid of it lol... I don't use medications as to me it's not a cure.. But I do use oils and a diffuser ... It does help but mostly you have to remember... When you are having anxiety and you start freaking out.. Just remember.. Ok this happened yesterday and I'm ok! I'm still here... And breathe and keep telling yourself this is my anxiety and I can beat it! It's happened before... And IM OKAY! That has helped me so much... When I feel a panic attack or anxiety and say that and start breathing and it does help... I don't know exactly what causes this but a lot of people are going through it... I mean so many! Some people have it worse and commit suicide ... So it's very hard... It's good to talk to people who have it cause people who don't will never understand....

      Hi thanks for your reply. Yes i know what u mean. I tried telling myself that. That i will be ok and nothing bad is going to happend thats its just anxiety and it cant hurt me. But sometimes i get overwhelm and it just sucks a lot. And yes some other people have it worse and its just sad. Their is so many people with anxiety

      Yeah like I all out of options I've been to mental therapy, physical therapy, psych doc, had all kinds of blood work, ekgs, MRIs, everything doctors all said I'm healthy , I don't tale antidepressants though I take vitamins instead, now my last resort is I'm scheduled to see a endocrinologist , because my therapist said it may be a hormones imbalance or my thyroids or something like that , so that's my last move after that I just have to realize that i have to just live with stupid anxiety and I don't want to !!!
