  • Hi There,

    I've had anxiety since I was in grade 10, and now I'm 23 years old. And I can honestly say it has taken over my life in a huge way. I used to suffer from extreme panic attacks, hyperventilating all the time - over the dumbest things- but I didn't know how to control it. And I found as I get older my anxiety is making me become more of a hypochondriac ( researching and thinking you have all the diseases) you'll search on google looking for all the symptoms that correlate to the disease. And then all of the sudden , your symptoms begin to worsen and then you really think you have it !
    I'm now dealing with the problem of severe muscle joint pain, located all in the thoracic region of my spine.
    And I want to be clear, all of these symptoms that everyone experiences , it's all in your head , I know it's all in mine. There are days where I get so frustrated to and I think to myself, why me ? Why can't I just be "normal".
    Drugs are not the answer. (continuation>>>

  • This might be costly, but it's worth it to make you feel like you're normal and you deserve to live . Try hypnotherapy. I'm going to try it too. Many have said it works wonders and there symptoms have gone away. Learn ways to help relax your body because that's really all its about. Please try and and if it's successful or not reply back on the post. Or someone reply who has tried hypnotherapy to treat anxiety disorder.
