Does anyone have any ways to make anxiety go away? I don’t want to bother people with it any more 😞

      CBD oil is actually very helpful & calming. i’ve come out of several panic attacks with it!

      Hey, anxiety is part of you, and taking your time to find the ways that help you best is going to help you most. If people are being impatient, or saying you’re bothering them, I wouldn’t worry. I’m sure they don’t understand just how wonderful you are! I’m sending my support. Medications and breathing exercises work, as do small coping skills and distractions in the world, especially during such a busy time in our lives.

      I personally use music via Spotify there’s lots of playlists aimed for anxiety and panic attacks. Weighted blankets and weighted plushies are also really helpful. I also use Flare ear pieces to help make noise not so sharp and noise cancelling headphones if I’m in loud environments.

      I can’t agree with Tomato’s comment enough. You’ll figure it out the more you try new things, just stay strong and we’re hear if you ever need to let something off your chest

      Hey, there isn’t too much for me to add on the comments. When time goes by you’ll figure out what makes you less nervous and how to calm yourself. Just give it time

      Hi friend! First off, I totally understand feeling like your condition is a bother to people. I’m sorry that you’re experiencing this. For an anxiety attack, it may be helpful to “shock” your nervous system by holding an ice cube or an ice pack in your hand or press it onto your face. If you can, try to go somewhere quiet and distant from others; you can’t be “bothering” people if you’re not around them. I’ve seen many different anxiety workbooks out there that could help re-direct your focus. For everyday anxiety, it may be helpful to take small comfort items with you to get you through the day - or if you don’t have one, see if you can find one or pick one up from a store. It can help you redirect your focus from what’s bringing you anxiety to something soft or spinny or whatever your favorite texture is (fidgets can be helpful). If your anxiety enhances sound, consider using headphones more or picking up some “ear defenders” to soften the noise. If you have an anxiety disorder, all you may have are palliative options (treats the symptoms, but cannot cure it) and that is okay! Know that your experience is valid, and that you are not a bother because of your anxiety. Hope this helped!

      Other than medicine, do what calms you down or relaxes you even when your not anxious. For example I have music. I dim the lights and get under a weighted heated blanket and close my eyes and listen to music with my earbuds at full blast to the point that I'm sure I'll go deaf. It calms me down because I try (and sometimes fail) to focus on the music and the lyrics. Sometimes I listen to instrumental versions of songs I like and just focus on the instruments, the tune, the up and downs and etc etc. It works for me. Maybe it will work for you.
