Part of the reason why I'm here is because I cannot control my anxiety and it's grown to affect parts of my life in a negative way. I had an incident last night where I had a bad conversation with my mom about my current situation. My mood plummeted for the rest of the evening, but I've noticed that certain things start to happen in the midst of my anxiety. I'll recognize them as symptoms of anxiety, but I can't seem to control them. Some of what happens to me: 1. I reanalyze the bad event and magnify it. If it was a bad conversation or I got some bad news, I'll obsess over it until I can't think about anything else. 2. I start to shake and lose control of my hands and arms. 3. Begin crying; stomach starts hurting, leading to gastrointestinal issues and vomiting. Stress-induced headaches and elevated temperature. 4. I begin thinking I can never overcome or get through the problem; experience suicidal and self harm thoughts. I'm not on any medication and haven't seen a doctor yet, but I plan to when I can afford it. Most of the time I'll stay in a panic attack with high levels of anxiety until I get physically tired; my anxiety is physically exhausting and I feel like I've been exercising afterwards. Slow breathing helps me some, but once the stomach problems have started I'm not able to get rid of them for hours. I had another panic attack this morning that didn't go away until the problem was fixed. I also obsessively worry, plan, and think about negative outcomes. I don't feel prepared to relax unless I've planned out my day or come up with a solution to a problem I am facing. If things don't go according to plan for the day I freak out and begin to magnify everything that went wrong. I will often sit for hours in silence, just thinking. I know what my triggers are, but I'd like to be able to deal with them in healthier ways. I ruin many good days by magnifying the bad points in them and I know it's not helping my situation. What are your techniques, outside of medication, breathing and mental exercises?
