Drink water, sleep early, go ride a bike alone, say no to bullshit and believe in yourself even if you feel fucked up, if you dont believe in yourself do an act but seek help afterwards. Find a good job that make your body work for real.

Stop looking at you in the mirror too. You exist, that's all. It's all gravy.

Don't think about panic attacks or anxiety. Think about not thinking about it while you look at pornos mags, dont be affraid at looking at pornos mags in public when you feel normal. It's good way to take over fears and practice your new way to be able to break the conformity of society that make you anxious and make you feel that you dont deserve your body. Think about how naked women are the best in this planet, anxiety will disolve. Same with animals but dont ask why they look like that.

You live in space but don't think about it, you won't undastand. Stop trying. they'll come to us.

Pure life mean your two feets on ground. Talk to girls your energy will rise. When you see grass take out your shoes and walk.

Teach kids to say "fuck weed", only drink in parties and smoke in parties but fuck weed, it's the key. Don't stop completly if drinking and weed is your thing. Your mind will be safer. Then stop. Be happy if you redo drinking, dont be a victim because you havin fun.

Eat chinese food, drink Perrier it saved Miles Davis. It took 6 years for him, so for you it will take 2 months and you'll be OK.

If it persist say to yourself : Do like Karl Watson. Be like Karl watson.

and remember....... you're worse than you envisage yourself, too come to terms with the reality of your existence would be too much to bear so your mind is subconsciously blocking it out, people who choose to disregard you are in on it and you cant keep up. things will not get better.......

I'm 20. I started suffering from Anxiety/OCD and Depersonalization Disorder (research it, it's the shittiest, most horrible thing imaginable) when I was 15 or so. First off, keep being sober. Shit helps a lot. I was so bad and had a mental breakdown last summer where I didn't leave my house or take a shower for three weeks. Just trust me when I say it will get better. When suffering an anxiety attack, the best thing for me was to watch something really funny immediately or play with my phone. If it's so bad it's really effecting your life.. go see someone. I've been on Lexapro for the past year and it's IMMENSELY helpful. I haven't had a panic attack since a little while after I started and my OCD tendencies are gone too. Depersonalization is pretty much a by-product of anxiety, so when that went away so did the depersonalization. Trust me, I was extremely against taking pills. But then again, pills aren't for everyone. See someone you really have good vibes with. Also, From Panic to Power is a really good book that could help you.

I've been on zoloft for 2 months now, and man the world is just much brighter. I tried lexapro (cipralex meltz) and it helped but the dose I needed would cost 400$ every 3 months, zoloft does the trick and it's 11$ a month, maybe?

The difference is night and day, I talk to girls without worry, strangers everything. it's hard to describe but it's like looking through your eyes with a 1 second confidence delay, and anything negative is just that.. negative, it's there but you're on to the next thing.. it doesn't compound into something that eats at you all day like it was before anti depressants.

We'll see how I feel about pills a year from now, but don't worry anxiety is perfectly normal.. and seeking treatment is the best thing, visit your doctor tomorrow

This could go in the Stoked on/not stoked thread on for me.  I had severe anxiety a while back due to working the graveyard shift and going days without sleep.  Thought I was having heart attacks, and I actually went to the hospital on one occasion, resulting in a five hundred dollar pat on the back.  For some reason cigarettes brought on anxiety at the time.  I'd think I was having an asthma attack and freak out.  As a result, my anxiety kind of fizzled out and I quit smoking as a result.  Almost a year cold-turkey.  But yeah, I smoke again now.

look into cognitive behavior therapy, i started last week and i can already feel slight improvements every day.
examine your anxiety triggers, figure out what they are and do your best to deal with them one at at time.
it can be overwhelming at times because it brings up alot of shit, but also helps you deal with that shit.
pick up a new hobby, eat healthier, try to get a regular sleep cycle going, talk to good friends you trust ( be careful who you tell though alot of people are judgmental assholes). pm me if you would like to check any of the materials my counselor gave me for help. good luck man, hope it gets better for you

I have anxiety to the point of crippling chest pain. Like stabbing my heart pain. Never took any anti-meds. Anyway, since I started working out and skating more (also quit smoking and started eating healthy) I have not had these pains.

I think anxiety effects each individual differently. I've honestly never dealt with sobriety so I can't tune in much on that. Best of luck to you bro. From my experience I am living abroad right now and had gnarly anxiety prior to leaving the USA. It was at a point wear it effected my job, my friends and family noticed it. My worst fear was the anxiety coming back when I was living abroad but surprisingly after 4 months I get very mild anxiety and often I just really put my self into check and realize that my life is pretty well and much better than it was when I was living in the USA. Ironically I had a lot of friends and family. Now I am kind of on the opposite end where I do have a very active social life but just one close friend I have gained. Back home I had a lot of child-hood friends to talk to but some time in my experience talking to the people closest to me often made it worse.

 I felt that when I did try to talk to friends about no one got it. People tend to hear things and base it off THEIR experience and view and often won;t factor in what YOUR going through or how you might see it . I talked to a hypno therapist which was okay but I felt for me talking to a psychologist was pretty chill-Again this worked for me and my situation. I also noticed cutting down lots of sugar and caffeine helped a bit too. I know a change in diet can do extreme wonders.

Best of luck again. Hope this helped..

I have it nothing super gnarly but I did lose a job from anxiety problems. It took me a year to go to the doctors and prescribed me proponolol and it's helped so far. It's not anti anxiety pills, all it does it regulate your heart and adrenaline so you don't have the physical symptoms.

wow, the outpour of support has been great. i was actually on my way to the ER when i posted this.
i thought i was having a fucking heart attack or something, my heart has been acting whacky the past few weeks.
i first noticed it about two weeks ago when my girlfriend and i were having sex, my heart start skipping beats right when i was cumming
it scared the shit out of me.(6 years of meth and 3 years of drinking to the point of multiple hospitalizations, who knows what shape my heart is in) since then i've had weird bouts of rapid heart rate and labored breathing. the physical aspects of anxiety have never manifested themselves like this before. anyway, a couple of EKG's and chest x-rays say that my heart is fine, my lungs are a little jacked but nothing a daily dose of albuterol can't fix. since school started last week, my eating habits went to shit. i usually eat a super healthy, balanced vegan diet. but sometimes ill be stuck at school starving and have to resort to a 99 cent Taco Bell burrito, full of sodium i can feel my blood pressure rising after eating shit like that. anyways, gotta make sure i prepare meals for myself every night before school, it seems to make a world of difference.

dude, im a totaly fucking night owl but i have to be at school by 8 everyday, which means up at 6 which means about 2(3 if im lucky) hours of sleep a night. that lack of sleep must have been what was fucking up my heart.

that stabbing pain is what made me want to go the ER last night, my dad had a massive fucking heart attack 4 years ago. I'm not taking any chances. but whats weird is that it seems as though the physical and psychological parts of anxiety can occur separately for me recently. never experienced this before.

It was scary at first. I thought I was having a heart attack too. I didn't want to go to the ER because of how expensive it would have been. Since switching to a cleaner lifestyle, I have not had any of these symptoms. It was kind of a rude awakening for me. Almost like my body was warning me that I need to cut stress, worry, cigs, all night drinking, pizza everyday out of my life.

Get to the root of what causes YOUR anxiety - think about when it happens, figure out the patterns and similarities in each situation and then try to eliminate the things that bring it on. Sometimes it's places, sometimes it's certain people that bring on stress and make your brain run a muck.

I'm on several different meds. One of them has got to be for anxiety. Can't say it does anything because I still get anxious all the time.

I've been wanting to get on something like that but people always tell me that I'll turn into a zombie. Are you able to think clearly while on the meds? Cus that's pretty much the thing that's holding me back

If you can take pills that help your life in any way, you would be stupid not to take them. My only regret is not getting on meds earlier, my life is awesome i haven't been able to say that honestly for years.
