For the past 3 years by anxiety had been building up into an unimaginable tower or doom. For the past year I've been only getting like 2 hours of sleep per night that included at least 1 nocturnal panic attack that caused me to wake up with bad heart palpitations, and looking at the mirror I can tell that it took a toll on me . But I fought my anxiety with all my strength. I forgave everyone who caused me grief, I tried to laugh everyday, I exercised, etc.. And finally I'm able to sleep and I couldn't be happier
I still regularly get nocturnal panic attacks but I"ve gotten to the point where I realize that A: it's temporary, B: I already know how it feels, C: I've gotten so used to them that I can get rid of the panic feeling in under a minute. It's become a non-issue with me and I've been so happy. I know there is a chance of relapse, but I know that I can get through it again. And I owe most of my thanks to here AZ.
It gets better.
