    I suffer from anxiety. Very first time was when we were told that were getting deployed to Afghanistan. I had no idea what to expect and I felt like I had no control. I was prescribed meds, but since then it hasn’t really gotten better, but I’ve gotten it under control. I went to therapy, and I generally meditate and even workout on my treadmill. I stay away from crowded places and you would find me at the supermarket at midnight or close to closing, because of that reason. Your ways are all ways that can help someone facing anxiety issues.

      Hey Annmariejohn,
      Thank you for sharing and it’s tough dealing with anxiety and being apart of the military. I understand that the additional stress can contribute to enhancing your anxiety. I reacted the same way in crowded places, being around so many people made it worst. Continue to have a positive mindset and do the things you are doing now.

    Thank you for sharing your experiences with us. I’ve been suffering from anxiety as long as I can remember. I tend to worry a lot and have racing thoughts. At at times it seems like I can’t just relax because I always feel like I have to be doing something; like as if I’m not doing enough. I have a few techniques that work good for me however sometimes I still tend to let it control me. I use a lot of deep breathing exercises as well as meditation techniques. I can honestly say that YouTube has been a good friend of mine for several relaxation videos. I am praying for the day that I can say that I am in full control. You made some good ideas on how we can control this monster called anxiety. These ideas have been very helpful to me as well.
