    • Hi. Thank you for your reply.  As for my current situation that caused my anxiety attack, I consulted a doctor who said it was nothing serious, just a reaction to something. Then doing some searching online I found that it's pretty common.  However that didn't magically make me feel better. I'm still dealing with the aftermath of the panic attack. 
    • Wendi I'm going through the same thing right now. About a "set back". My anxiety isn't health anxiety but I can relate. I wasn't on here for a few weeks either. And then BAM it comes back. You're not alone!
    • Hi Casey. No, don't get mad at 'IT'. 'IT' can't help it because that's it's rotten nature. I sometimes suggest externalising 'IT'. Bloody anxiety!! Talk to the little sod, because that's what he is, little. Remember the man being chased by the Tiger? He ran and ran until, exhausted, he turned and faced the Tiger, which stopped and gradually shrunk to the size of a mouse and scuttled into the corner. By confronting our fears we overcome them. By hiding them or trying to ignore them we pile on problems because they won't go away. STOP RUNNING AWAY. Turn and face 'IT'. Give 'IT' a bloody good talking to. Who's boss here, me or you? Who has the most intelligence. ME!! so begone and don't come back or it's a good kick up the butt. OK?  You will find if you do that to  'IT' it's not as big as you thought.
    • Yes Wendi, NOW you are beginning to think logically.    I guess if it were something else, then anxiety medication wouldn't help it right? lol  Absolutely right. We don't often realise how our muscles and bones play a big part in causing symptoms when overworked. A good Chiropractor or Osteopath can often work wonders. The Osteopath's motto, " Structure governs function" is so true. If our body is in good shape it can influence our attitude; how we feel and behave. Exercise can often relieve so much tension and anxiety is, after all, tension. But mental exercise is necessary too. The right attitude to the problem. You will be fine, as you always were. Stick with it, it does pass.
    • Hey Jon! Yes, I know you are right and by the time I got ready for work and got to work, I had calmed down a lot, but I had also taken my medication. I guess if it were something else, then anxiety medication wouldn't help it right? lol  Set backs stink. I have had them before but they usually would only last a day or two but this one has been going on for several weeks and seems to have gotten worse instead of better. My husband is going with me to see a chiropractor this week about my neck and shoulder and stuff. Everyone says it's probably from sitting at my computer all day has finally caught up with me as sometimes even my arms will hurt from my elbows down to my hands so now I am thinking it's a nerve thing.    Anyway, thank you for replying... you usually know what to say to help me see reason... I guess sometimes we just need to hear it from someone else who understands and has been there!
