New here!!
« on: March 20, 2014, 12:09:09 AM »
Hello.  I am new to the community and wanted to say hello.  I have suffered from anxiety for just about as long as I can remember.  I have always been able to control it through breathing exercises and meditation.  But now I am in such a state that I can't control it alone.  Was hoping to get some coping techniques and some support.  Looking forward to meeting people I can relate too and hoping for better days ahead.

Well, here is a technic You may find helpful:
1- Just scale your anxiety by using a scale from 1 to 10 ( the lowest and the highest); by doing this for just a week, you realize that your anxiety is relative and its intensity is changing , so it looses its catastrophic aspect supported by the belief it's unchangeable , fixed and never disappears.
You could also try this exercise 3 times in a single day, its effect is the same.

Welcome to the forum. Good to have you as a member. Here you are with like minded people. People who understand. As we all suffer from something or other. So feel free to ask any questions. Our members are always willing to help others out. Good chatroom too. 3 posts to enter the room.

Find the correct section of the forum that suits your condition and create a new topic on it. This is just a welcome section. Never really get the same amount of help in this section as you would on the other sections of the forums. So whatever one suits the questions you are asking. Get much better answers.
All users of the chatroom must be 18 years old or over. The room is off limits to anybody under the age of 18.

Possibly 10 posts to enter chat at the moment.
