I've lived with anxiety longer than many of you have been alive, so I have a pretty good idea of what works, that is for me. I can't pretend it was easy in the beginning, it wasn't. I hated what was happening, I kept it fresh in my mind, so I kept it alive, waiting for the attack which sometimes didn't come.
Maybe it's the time that dissipates the anxiety, maybe it's the realization that it's a bully with no bite, it just makes you feel jumpy, and if you let it, it builds like a kids toy block set, then it collapses, and nothing happened. All of those times taught me nothing is going to happen, not a damn thing.
Lucky for me I like to exercise, I like to test myself, push myself to go farther, lift a little heavier each time. The exercise IMO is one of the best forms of relief from anxiety, it's those last few reps, the ones you'd rather not do, but you do it anyway, or going further on a turn around (bicycle, or trikke). Now that really feels great after the fact, relaxing, that calm feeling when you close your eyes feeling your body lose tension.
Of course time heals, but many of you need to find your own method, I recommend conditioning your body, not mildly, but a program that requires work, believe me those endorphins cannot be boughtm they're earned, and worth it.
