I can't thank Sheri Vincent and anxietycentre.com enough.
Friends, I remember it vividly, I didn't know what was going on! Things seemed very strange, my thoughts were racing, I felt strange and foreign all the time, panic attacks, utter moments of dispair thinking I was going to die and losing my mind and barrage of other anxiety symptoms and thoughts that aren't even explainable if your at this point you know what I mean! I felt helpless especially being a man, every day was unbearable! I was seriously depressed and ready to check out of life! I remember searching countless weeks on the internet for what I was feeling and finally I figured it out FEAR or more commonly known as anxiety disorder. I had an anxiety problem!
People let me assure you none of these things your feeling are remotely true! I've been there and lived it and through it. Everything seems bad when your mind and body's on high alert! I'm still here and none of those things that your mind and body are telling you are true all it's telling you is that there is a problem. You will see irrefutable proof of this when you make it through this and you will! The key lies in your mind and your thoughts and changing habits that have built up over a lifetime. You will have to make some sacrifices while going through this process of change. This is a process and will take time, this is a process and will take time, this is a process and it will take time! Did you get that?
Be patient with yourselves, you will get there. Little improvements come and you slowly get yourself back over time. You have to pay the symptoms no attention they are only still there to remind you that there is work to be done. Get back to living as if there's nothing wrong, get off the net, stop the anxious habit of searching and replace that attitude of fear with confidence and soon you will start to believe it again! Yeah right you say? That attitude is part of the problem, if it weren't true I would have no story to tell and you wouldn't be here on this site reading this. I had this as bad as anyone and worse in most cases!
When I found Anxiety Centre and what a blessing from God no doubt! They had so much information on this subject there, more than any other site I had seen and lets face it we're the type of people that want details! If you reached the point of desperation that I did, get a coach, the benefits are remarkable and they can help you get to the bottom of the issues that surround this condition.
In my opinion there is only one type of person that can help someone with anxiety and that is someone else who has lived it also and that's what Anxiety Centre is all about! I can't thank Anxiety Centre enough!
I am currently finishing up their program, I’m off the meds and look forward life again!
This is a tough journey with many ups and downs but I can honestly say I am a better person for the experience. Hang in there people it gets so much better it really does! God bless!
The combination of good self-help information and working with an experienced anxiety disorder therapist, coach, or counselor is the most effective way to address anxiety and its many symptoms. Until the core causes of anxiety are addressed - we call these core causes the underlying factors of anxiety - a struggle with anxiety unwellness can return again and again. Dealing with the underlying factors of anxiety is the best way to address problematic anxiety.
