Bek, that is very normal. Anxiety comes and goes and it can come when you seem to have no stress in your life. Maybe the problem is deep in your subconscious...I dont know. I had anxiety when I was in college 20 years ago. Never had another problem till about two years ago. Since then it comes and goes. I am a laid back person, but my internal dialogue is negative (dont like the job, wife spends too much money, my son is not being all he can be, traffic sucks.....You get the idea). Someone told me to try hypnotherapy. I have yet to do that, but I plan on trying. I am not going to take xanax or an antidepressant. There is a lady named dr lucinda basset who has a program you can buy that helps you deal with this problem. Just put her name in google and you'll come accross her website. Good luck
Iamdacat, I have this program I am up to part 6, a very nice person on this site shared it with me! It has helped a lot. I have also purchased "hope and hlep for your nerves, by claire weekes", this was recommended by the same person that told me about the lucinda bassett program.
It is working for sure. But like the title of this email says - I feel great for months and then it all comes back - not as bad but still it comes back and it takes me off guard cause I am so used of it not being with me anymore
I have the program also, I only got about 2 chapters into it before... Well before I stopped, I personally started to take on symptoms after learning about them. I felt as if the program wasnt syncing with me enough and gave up on it.
I agree completely my stress/anxiety comes and goes....Something I well just be driving to work and boom it hits me, I get knots in my stomack and my thoughts all turn to the things that I worrie about...It sucks!!!!
I have been reading o lots of books by the dali lama and they seem to help me, I also have found this link and the sie that host it has cool video on many heath realated subjects...
This is happening to me now, I was off work for 2 weeks with stress and now 5 months on I am feeling low. Everyone is asking if I'm ok, nothing has changed in my life so I don't know why I'm feeling like this. Please help, does anyone know of any herbal tablets to take? I been taking st. Johns wart but they don't seem to do much :0(
