I have suffered from anxiety for a number of years now and even though I kept it a secret from a lot of people I feel that I have come a long way in my journey.
When I first started suffering with anxiety my attacks they used to be daily occurrence and I would find myself crippled to the point I was lying in a ball on the floor, I wouldn't leave the house or even answer the door. I would only leave the house when I had to and only with my husband I couldn't bear of doing anything on my own I felt that I needed to be accompanied everywhere just in case I had an attack.
I have come a long way now that I have fewer anxiety attacks they average around once a month and some months none at all! I can leave the house on my own and feel as though I don't have to be with someone all time I actually enjoy having time to myself.
I seemed to have worked out my triggers and developed coping mechanisms to overcome my attacks. I have been seeing a therapist for a few months that seems to have helped in dealing with my thought processes and how I react to certain situations. I have worked hard to get to this point and when I look back on how I was and it's like I was a different person.
I hope that for all those people suffering like I was/am I want to say there is a light at the end of the tunnel. You will get better it just takes time and patience it has taken me years to get to this point and I still have a long way to go. Nobody's perfect.
