This is only my situation, take what applies and leave the rest. I found that with my anxiety that if I keep building something up, making a mountain out of a molehill, then my anxiety rises till I'm in the hospital again thinking I'm having a, mild :
Then only to find out it is anxiety. I would have to take strong pills to keep this from happening. Until I figured out all on my own that I can be in control of me. Granted it took time to learn how. But I did learn how. Now for the past couple of years, no anxiety med's and no anxiety to speak of. I have to keep myself in check during stress or certain situations. It is doable. I know because I'm doing it. I had to change my environment and I have to stay out of big crowds of people, but that was for me. Not saying that is what you need to do. Take what helps and leave the rest.
One thing I'd get all worked up about would be quitting smoking. Husband would take cigg's, money, cards and keys so I couldn't smoke.Talk about a high energy situation. But I learned how to cope with anxiety when I moved in with my mom. Such a sweet lady and super mom. So for the past 3 years I've been in a peaceful and loving environment. Sometimes a change is needed sometimes not. You have to figure out what stresses you out and find your happy spot while these things go on around you. Close your eyes concentrate on your heart beats and your breathing. Slow them down. Try to breath slow, eyes closed tune out what is going on. If you need to, excuse yourself to a safe place. Meditation type stuff, you can find a lot just google it meditation.
Long enough, enough said. I sincerely hope this helps others dealing with anxiety.
