Dating someone who suffers from anxiety
I also find that listening to music, playing games, or listening to a guided relaxation on my Iphone or Ipod a helpful distraction.
Getting up and moving around also helps, sometimes just calling someone and hearing another person's voice, if you have no one to call try calling a prayer line or help line (You can program these numbers into your cell phone), It also helps to get on this support board and talk to others who understand what you are going through!
A lot of cleaning products like bleach and Lysol spray will cause me to have anxiety. Continue with Steps 4-7 I been reading the original version of "The Feeling Good Handbook" by David Burns, it is the 1989/1990 version, and I am finding the advice in this book helpful! Other books I find helpful are "The Anxiety & Phobia Workbook: A Step-by-Step Program for Curing Yourself of Extreme Anxiety, Panic Attacks, and Phobias", "Panic Attacks Workbook: A Guided Program for Beating the Panic Trick", "Health Journeys Guided Meditations For Help With Panic Attacks", and "Managing Stress: Principles and Strategies for Health and Well-Being (Web Enhanced with CD-ROM)" I also just recently got “The Linden Method” I have already found some helpful advice in the manual that goes with the program, and the “Panic Attack Eliminator CD” that comes with the program seems helpful. I have the same problems they said I suffer from panic attacks and depression but I have 98.% of my attacks within the first two hours of my sleep and since the first one I haven't felt normal I feel like I'm in a daze all day everyday I'm on Lexapro and Xanax and the Xanax helps me sleep but only for a few hours.....
Stress is another big factor in my panic attacks and anxiety. And I just ordered a used copy of the “Attacking Anxiety Program” from Ebay. I'm just so confused feel like I'm losing my mind.... I have the same problems they said I suffer from panic attacks and depression but I have 98.% of my attacks within the first two hours of my sleep and since the first one I haven't felt normal I feel like I'm in a daze all day everyday I'm on Lexapro and Xanax and the Xanax helps me sleep but only for a few hours.....
The point of the sigh is not to completely empty your lungs. The movement of your stomach precedes the inhalation by just the tiniest fraction of a second, because it's this motion which is pulling the air in. I will take Klonopin which really helps, and Toprol which is a beta-blocker to keep my pulse and blood pressure under control.
It's just to relax the muscles of your upper body. When you've inhaled as much air as you can comfortably (without throwing your upper body into it), just stop. I also take Reglan for my heartburn problems which has been then only thing that has ever really helped that.
I noticed that when I am not taking vitamins I have a lot more anxiety, my guess is that I am low on some vitamins and minerals and this set off anxiety symptoms.
And I have had many test done, but even after all that I still feel like there is something wrong with my heart even though all the test show otherwise!
