Acceptance?
« on: July 12, 2014, 06:29:09 PM »
Hey everyone. Well last time I posted I was off to California and it was my first time on a plane. The plane ride was alright I force myself not to panic which was good. But I panicked the whole trip I did not enjoy myself at all. I threw up because of how anxious I was and I've never thrown up due to anxiety that's how bad it was. I got home and I didn't feel sick anymore but since then I've been having trouble leaving my house. I've been feeling sick again and I know for a fact it's because I'm not leaving the house but I'm too scared to leave because of the anxiety symptoms I feel like you know how it is I know it's anxiety but I convince myself it's something else and I feel if I leave my house I'll get sick in public or something. I cannot accept its anxiety making me sick like I know it is but I'm having a hard time believing it! I start school in 2 weeks also and I have to go get an eye exam, haircut, school supplies school clothes. How am I gonna do all that if I can't leave my house?! Someone  please help me I need to do this and I only have 2 weeks so times ticking.

OK... Since we only have 2 weeks - My two cents  :twocents: 

You Have the Power  :yes:

:yes: Remember, that even if you do have panic or anxiety attacks, you can still use Positive Affirmations, Understand that fear has no real power over you, there are many CBT and mental strategies that you can implement to overcome this, you have done in the past and you have the power to do it again :grinning-smiley-003:




1)  There are tools on this website - that are excellent in helping to self-diagnose your anxiety.  Download, Print and fill out the self-quiz.

2) Make sure to pay special attention to - Self-Test for Panic Disorder and GAD - Self Test  :grinning-smiley-003:

3) Make a Dr. appointment or if you can't get an appointment - call any Dr. that may be available -   :yes: 

4) I would print out this material, including your self-tests, place them in a folder - and bring them with you to your Dr. Appointment  :sign0169:

5) Keep us informed of your Progress - you will get a lot of support from the wonderful people in this forum  :action-smiley-065:
