      Medication and how you approach the situation really helps. Like yesterday, a former manager from Casey's just had to show up and I had a panic attack to where I had issues focusing. She used to snap at me too. (Debbie) With Makayla at McDonald's, she used to be about as bad as Debbie ,but now we got to where we had a good day yesterday. I was very medicated though,but it helps.

      Medication wise- I take hydroxyzine 3x a day to deal with general anxiety and the either more hydroxyzine or Klonopin for more episodic/panic anxiety. Outside of medication, mindfulness practice works great. Once you get the hang of it through practice, it definitely helps ground you in the moment.

      How long have you had it and what are your symptoms? I've battled it since I was five so hopefully I can help you out in some way.

        @Ms.CandyHeart I’ve had it for the past year or 2, I randomly get anxiety when nothing is going on and when something does happen I go right into a anxiety attack with no time to respond to it and I take medicine but it isn’t working like it was at one point

          @Sammy083021 aside from therapy and medication, one of the best things I've learned to do is simply tell someone you trust as soon as a little anxiousness starts. I have people picked out that I have explained my anxiety to and told them ahead of time what to do. Things like, tell me I'm okay, distract me, hold my hands, do grounding with me. If you are by yourself call someone you trust that knows what to do. Having a plan definitely brings the mind ease. Letting it out gives it less power because their is less anxiety trapped in your brain, and you start to gain control again. Eventually it will start to decrease the more you let it out, trust me!
