What do i do about my anxiety?!

Question: What do i do about my anxiety.?
I suffered with really bad anxiety from ages 13-17. I eventually saw a therapist for it and she helped me get through it, I ended up beating the rest on my own.
Whatever seems scary, face it. Because if you don't find out whether the situation was scary or not in the end, it'll always scare you. It might not even be that big a deal, but unrealistic thoughts blow up in the middle of an anxiety attack.
Think of evidence for your thoughts, and evidence against it.

The people across the street are going to beat me up.
Evidence for: They're pushing each other around, that means they could do that to me.
Evidence against: They're probably just playing around and having a good time. If they haven't done anything yet, then why would they in three minutes.?

Think realistic thoughts, and try the evidence for and against, it worked with me, and it might work with you.
If anxiety is getting so bad that you can't leave your house without being shoved out by someone, then you may need to see a therapist.

Hopefully it helped, and good luck (Y)Health Question & Answer

Exercise is the best thing for anxiety, no joke. It releases endorphins and all that. Plus it makes you less self conscious about yourself so you are more confident. It may not cure your anxiety 100% by any means, but it does help a lot and is worth a try... There are other things you can do as well such as relaxation techniques and avoiding certain foods (especially caffeine).

If you do all these little things it really adds up and will help significantly... Just stay away from the benzodiazepines. They're addictive, and prescribed way too often because of doctors who are getting bonuses every time they write a prescriptionHealth Question & Answer
