Hi my name is manuel and since i was in 8th grade i suffered from panic and anxiety attacks. And as the years went by my anxiety began to get worse and worse until it got to the point i got really depressed. Recently my grandma was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer and good thing is she has hope. When i found out it got to me and i fell back down and my anxiety got worse. Not only that but i have been worried that i wont graduate on time because im at a continuation school and i really want to prove my parents wrong. My life has been a huge non-stop roller coaster. Lately i have been noticing that i get muscle tremors and stomach aches and gas. And at times it feels my stomach is burning or if that doesnt happen my stomach rumbles and i have the urge to use the restroom. Sometimes i feel i want to barf but then like i suddenly dont want to barf or anything. Plus my stools have been wierd. They come out wierd or skinny. No blood though. I have been tested for so much and it all comes back positive. If i dont feel that i get neck tension and very bad tension headaches. It gets to the point where im sensitive to noise and light or it causes my scalp to tighten up and feel achey. I know its my anxiety because its caused me alot and it causes me to worry A LOT. Sometimes i think why anxiety is so strong in its ways, but i know i can stop what im feeling if i wasnt such a worrier. Like how i said i get tested but everything comes back normal. Last year i thought i had a kidney infection or kidney stones and they did a blood test and a urine sample. The urine sample showed i was high in calcium and the doctor said that explained the kidney aches so she did a blood test and a week after she got it and she said it was normal nothing bad. And i told her i do have GAD and i worry and stress out alot. And she said to see a counciler.
Sorry for the story but yea thats been my life since i was a 8th grader. Now im use to it but still worried and do get the anxiety attacks. Please tell me ways to ease anxiety and soon im going back to counciling and i seriously cant wait. Thank you
