Take a moment and just stop. . . Breath . . . Do what makes you calm your thoughts. As you get older, your surroundings change. What ever it may be that your having a hard time with WILL change. That's a fact Jack. Take a deep breath. The stress, pain anxiousness isn't worth a single moment in our short lives. Think about what does matter. Love, family and food :)

Thanks, but I meant general anxiety, not an attack.
Good advice though

What's the difference? Mary helps me the most. I'm epileptic so it's ok.

Attacks are sudden and extreme spikes in anxiety. General is more like a slow build, a weight of fear in your chest.

Same experience but just over slower time. My father is bipolar, same concept in my mind. Small episodes of sadness, anxiousness and grief lead up to a outburst, never knowing what will cause the dam to burst. Over the years I've kept the same feelings away by trying to look at my issues from a outside perspective. Much easier said than done.

Ive done that. It pushes 'em out for a bit, but they come right back

Talk to someone. I talk to my wife about everything. It's amazing, so many issues and problems we help each other with. Plus (she's just like my dad) worked up over NOTHING!! woah woah woah, holder newt!! (I'll say) The world will be just fine, this too shall pass. Unless it isn't or won't. Than it didn't even matter. Talk to someone, it helps

I write what I feel on paper in a nice pen. If I feel really awful, I write on my skin instead of using a knife. I have a bracelet of lava stones you can soak in lavender oils to calm. Also I listen to a calming sound track online. A bunch of little things that don't always work, but are helpful to me.

I've learned to just not care. I'm really settling into the stoner stereotype that a majority of people see me as.

Breathe deeply and slowly
Go in the bathroom and look at myself in the mirror
Tell myself "you have survived every single shit that has happened to you, you'll make it again this time. You. Are. Better. Than. This."
Then bloom my most wicked smile at my reflection and keep on fighting

Ohk so what I do when I am anxious is, I start talking really fast. It helps me calm down. I swear a lot and say motivational shit to myself really angrily/roughly. Helps me to focus.

I think you're asking about more long-term, constant anxiety. So I find that making lists helps. I write down everything I need to do each day/week/month and then I can have feelings of accomplishment and control when I check things off. I also try to do something nice for myself every day, even if it's small like making a cup of the expensive tea instead of the regular stuff. Daily practices of yoga, meditation, or mindfulness have demonstrated effectiveness at reducing general anxiety.

Read lots of novels,play games,meditate(works best) and sleep of course..if these things doesnt work the best thing to do is to trust yourself most,that with time you'll figure out every problem and i bet that depression or anxiety will surely be gone
