Anxiety will not go away

  1. As I am typing this I feel like I am going to have a panic attack. Nothing is happening, literally nothing. I am just sitting here, typing this post yet my anxiety is through the roof. It's constant, day in, day out. Some days it's worse than others but it is always there, this intense irrational fear and feeling of impending doom. My anxiety was bad before but it has become 10 times as bad and I can barely go anywhere anymore. I went to the supermarket earlier today and I almost got a panic attack, my heart was pumping through my chest. I literally don't know what's going on in my body at the moment, it's so horrible. My body goes from cold to hot to cold over and over, my hands and feet are really cold and I feel weak all over. I hope this passes soon.

    Stay strong man, all of these things causing you to feel anxious are in your head. You can take control over yourself.
    I'd recommend you practice some form of prayer (if religious) or meditation to help yourself calm down. I've had moments where I hyperventilated a lot for no apparent reason, but since I've found ways to deal with this.
    One way to deal with this issue is to:
    • Take a small moment away and forget everything
    • Settle down in a bed/chair/sofa/floor mat and breathe slowly and deeply
    • Refocus on your mind and remind yourself of what is actually happening. Remind yourself of the moment you're living and the tasks that you have to deal with, and tell yourself how exactly you're gonna do them. Be confident in how you talk to yourself, and never plant seeds of doubt in your mind
    • Once you feel that you've gotten everything under control, go back to what you were doing
    Of course it's probably difficult to practice this in public places, but doing it at home constantly will allow you to be calmer throughout the day.
    I hope this can be of help, and good luck to you my friend!
