Wow u know what? I got an anxiety attack reading this thread and thinking about anxiety! Yikes! Power of suggestion or what?! whew!
fresh baked bread...birds...water....sunlight...fresh baked bread...birds..water..sunlight
that's my anxiety mantra that I whisper to myself..or sometimes have to say to myself out loud if the voice going "doom...disaster.."-u get the picture- is so loud that I can't hear my whisper.
It's got soothing words and focusing on the repeating them takes your mind away from the circle of frozen circuitry that it gets into.
When that fails, I take klonapin...but that is in NO way an endorsement for klonapin or any other psychiatric drug. I don't like all my coping tools but I work with what I have till i get sumthing better.
