    It's Very Hard

    I do need to control my anxiety, but it's very hard. I have very serious social anxiety & also some general anxiety. At this moment, I'm feeling very anxious, & I don't even know why. My old therapist used to tell me to meditate. That was her only advice to me in two years...

    I have anxiety about my health.

    I'm always afraid of my heart stopping before I go to bed and I sometimes even fear choking on my food while I'm eating, which leads to mini panic attacks if I swallow something "too big". Any one else feel this way and if so, how have you coped?
