A few years ago when I first got these anxiety/panic episodes, it nearly destroyed me. I couldn't function, could barely think, broke down at the slightest almost random stimulus. But slowly I got better thanks to drugs and some therapy. But I had to stop that for awhile because of location problems.
Now it's back and it feels even worse since there's a possible illness thing involved so now I am just a complete miserable wreck all the time. Fighting back doesn't seem to be working, I wake up shivering in terror every morning, and laying in bed thinking of facing another whole day like this makes me wanna just break down crying each time. My stomach is always churning, its effecting my hygiene, and my relationships.
Anyone have any methods or ways to fight fear this deep? Deep breaths don't seem to help, I can't seem to focus enough to do them right.
