    Okay...so we have a ''are you suicidal today thread'' which I created back in 2009 ( http://www.suicideforum.com/showthread.php?66122-Are-you-feeling-suicidal-today )and people post there every day I thought it would be helpful to have this thread to help and be there for those who are anxious or have similar feelings and hopefully it will be comforting.

    I am anxious today, I don't know why but I am. It will wear off as the night goes on,it is strange that I find the longer I am awake the less anxiety I have, it never fails for me.

    Are you feeling anxious today?

    I have varying degrees of anxiousness every day. I was more depressed than anxious today, but if I start to feel a panic attack or something coming on, I will try to find ways to cope with that.

    How are feeling now storm? Has the anxiety eased off? Use all the coping mechanisms that are of benefit to you.

    I'm glad you try to find ways to cope as there's nothing worse than laying down or doing something and just remaining anxious out of your mind. Hugs to you :hug:

    I do not like the word euphoric because it's associated with drugs but it does feel euphoric to have no anxiety. It is amaaaaazing. Post back tomorrow or whenever and let me know how you are. I care!!

    I keep thinking of upcoming things that I can't avoid, and I am going into panic mode big time. Hope I can distract myself enough so that it doesn't develop into a full blown panic attack.

    I'm okay now, but last night I had my first generalised anxiety attack for a long long time and it was awful :(

    Yes. I feel like my world just came crashing down around me in the matter of an hour... I can't breathe. Chest hurts.

    I feel kinda bad right now, I remember something that I shouldn't. Making me uncomfortable. But hope things are going better soon, I hope. Hope you are well, have a great day!
