I am hoping to help anyone out there with Anxiety/Panic/Depression, through my own experiences. I want you to know that you can help yourself, you can overcome, you can feel better.
Firstly I would like to mention that I have had this affliction for over 12 years now and I am able to function on a daily basis. I do still have anxiety/panic/depression, but with medication and some helpful tips I have been able to live a decent daily live where at first I was suffering. I spent 2 years not able to leave my home. I spent approximately 6 years only able to go certain places and with someone at my side. I am now working and taking care of my family in a somewhat normal state.
Now I would like you to know that I was able to do this by seeing the doctors, taking their advise and taking the medication prescribed to me. It took a couple of years for the doctors and myself to find a medication that worked for me and that I could tollerate. You too can do this. I slowly taught myself to leave the house, a little bit at a time. This is called (baby steps) , you don't have to take on too much at once. I found that everyday if I did something new that I couldn't do before the panic and anxiety got better.
Exercise and eating right are the key. Exercise does not have to be vigorous at first . Just take a short walk. Or if you are house bound, go out and walk around the yard or just simply get up off the couch , or out of your bed and move around. Make a concious effor to try everyday, a little more , and more the next day. Eating right means, no junk food, don't eat foods that are fatty, lots of fruits and veggies and leave the chips and snacks out of the picture. I know easier said then done, I know because i slip alot with this one, but eating those foods does alot to your brain chemistry , keeping you depressed and then full of Anxiety.
I am not going to go on too much now, as I know it's hard to read alot of information, with our panic minds as I call them, I emplore you to just try, you will see things will slowly get better, it is a process , but it can be done!
Have a Panic Free day!
