Anxiety sucks. Was just talking to my partner about it. Hit me once in a crowded college cafeteria, I had to up and out of there to a quiet place where I could breath. Do you have ways of calming the anxiety when it comes?
Okay! That's a good system. If it helps you keep at it. So many people have anxiety these days, you know? We're all stressed and strained and can't deal.
Yes, especially when I am trying to fall asleep. the shortness of breath and chest pain comes on. ugh.
There is no appropriate time. :(
Yeah like at the DMV.
Umm where you go to get your driver's license.
Good lawyer. The water thing helps me too, but not enough.
Caffeine probably doesn't help the anxiety :)
I don't really have a good answer for this. I have a bad habit of checking my pulse rate obsessively, which can either calm me down or make things worse. If it's mild I just suffer through it and if it's bad I end up curling up on the floor in front of the television.
I have to reassure myself that my body is working properly when I start to feel bad or I'll freak out and call 9-1-1. :)
Glad you found a way to beat it. Gives me hope :)
