    I have been dealing with anxiety for more than five years. During my attacks, I suffer from shortness of breath, sweating, chest pain, and sometimes I also feel that I am going crazy. I learned to calm myself by practicing breathing and meditation. I also take SSRIs which reduce my attacks.

    Hi! I realized I had anxiety when I started college. When I get an anxiety attack I often get physically ill and have difficulty breathing and my heart races, often getting dizzy and spaced out. I have been doing what my therapist suggested which is getting a white board and writing a couple things to center myself and get me out of that heads pace which helps me a bit when I feel it coming on. If I have a particularly overwhelming day or week I try to calm myself by doing crafts like crocheting, sculpting, or sewing which is a really nice distraction!

    Honestly, I think the thing that's helped me the most was getting approved for disability. I function so much better now that I don't have to worry about working. My finances suck, but I'm able to function at home.
