    What is the best way to get rid of anxiety problems?

    I have really bad anxiety problems. They have almost taken over my life. I can't go out and do things with friends anymore and I don't eat as much as I used to. I am losing weight to the point where it is extremely unhealthy. I go to the doctors every 2 weeks because they have to monitor my weight. I have an in school and out of school therapist, but nothing seems to be working! Please someone help!

    Hi Lisa,

    Welcome to WH.

    Sometimes threads gets lost as the pages turn. We urge our members to click on the related topics such as "dating/mental health" that they feel they can assist a member with so that we don't miss your threads...

    So here we are.

    Can you tell us what the therapists do?

    I understand the Doctor is monitoring your weight to ensure you don't go beyond where it's hard to come back.

    I take it your parents are right there with you, by doing all of this and that's great.

    Can you tell us a bit about you, ... Do you remember when you didn't feel this way and were mingling with the kids from school?

    Did something happen that made you withdraw?


      What you can do is Yoga, Meditation, Exercises. Exercise increases the endorphins. You can even try other alternative such as Ayurveda, acupuncture, shamanism, massage therapy all have something to offer people with anxiety. Allow yourself to spend time with people because chatting and laughing with others will help you feel normal. Practice the routine.


        I know it may seem like your stuck in a hole with no way out, but I struggle with anxiety and depression on a day to day basis - and over the past year mine has improved tonnes. What I did to help was to reverse your thinking, instead of focusing on what gives you anxiety (as with anxiety, you tend to focus on the negative, like for me I hate strangers and I start feeling all anxious and getting palpitations when they just merely look at me) - just concentrate on you, the next step you take, the sounds and smells around you, the colour of the sky - little small things that pull you out your world and into the beautiful one around you. Its a hard first step, but I promise it helps so much. I also keep a diary with me 24/7 in my hand bag and whenever I feel like I have a build up, or just want to cry/scream I scribble down how I'm feeling and oh my it helps so much! I had to do it in a superstore loo once. I hope these small things help, good luck and I promise things will change.


          Hi lisarjiem! If you want to eliminate anxiety, make a test for the severity of the symptoms of anxiety today. You will receive an exhaustive measure of anxiety, compare your anxiety with others and learn more about what you can do to cure the symptoms of anxiety forever.
          Managing your anxiety is when you can control your anxiety in certain situations or on certain days. You "control it" in those days when you wake up, feel less anxious than usual, or you can go through your day without anxiety and panic attacks. You know that there is an alarm, and you know that you are doing it every day, but there are times when they are slightly more controlled than others.

          Treating your anxiety is when your anxiety disappeared, and you are not worried about returning it. This is when you eliminate the feeling that your anxiety will affect you, and although there may be a day or two when you feel anxiety simply because sometimes people experience anxiety in life, it is otherwise completely eliminated.

          It starts with commitment. There is no magic pill or a wonderful treatment that can stop your anxiety at night. If you are not committed to eliminating your anxiety, you can never really get rid of it, because you need to work constantly until it disappears, even if you have failures from time to time.

          The next step is to show the willingness to change things in your life to create this alarm. There will be some problems and tough decisions, including reducing the time you spend with those who create anxiety and avoid the anxiety that drives the activity. But these changes will have an effect in the long run.

          It is very important that you study substitution methods to cope with anxiety. Anxiety in itself is a problem of overcoming, and, unfortunately, many things that people use to replace it, including:

          Being lonely
          Therefore, when we talk about tools for reference, we are really talking about behaviors and actions that give you the best opportunity to rethink the mental ability to cope. These are actions that give you healthy distractions, potentially with their own benefit from your anxiety. But always remember - stress and anxiety is your own mental ability to overcome anxiety, not some behavior. They are simply considered to be one of the most useful methods that help your brain regain its ability to cope.

          All exercises are valuable, but the escape, apparently, creates a healthy number of neurotransmitters that support the mood. It also tires the muscles to reduce the severity of anxiety symptoms, burns the hormone cortisol stress and appears to have a healthy distracting effect on the mind. Combined, jogging is one of the best replacement tools that you can do.
          Similarly, many people try to practice yoga instead. Yoga provides similar exercises, and has a spiritual effect that many find valuable. But beyond that, yoga involves a lot of self-control, and this self-control proves useful to those who must distract their mind from their worries.
          People say that art is useful for anxiety, because it allows you to express yourself. Most likely, it is something more, especially because many people do not feel they know how to become artists. The reason that art is beneficial is very similar to yoga. This requires much attention and control, and in order to engage in art, you ignore even a part of your anxiety.
          Choose your best and forget about this problem. All the best.

                Thank you Curtis Cross. Very important advice.



                  To be completely honest, anxiety is pretty consistent, and therefore expected in set situations.
                  Usually, when a person suffers from anxiety (such as me) there are things that trigger it. It can be something as small as public speaking, or as big as a trauma happening or reoccurring. No one with anxiety has it for "no reason". What you have to do is have your loved one write out all the big AND small things that give them anxiety. After you see everything on paper, use it as a guide of help. Instead of trying to change their anxiety, try changing the scenario in which they are getting the anxiety from.
                  Ie. If they get anxiety from seeing diet coke, and the reason being is because coke reminds them of a person they were afraid of that used to drink it. Focus on doing activities and excersise where your loved one is working on feeling less fearful of the person that drank diet coke all the time. You have to fix the problem, and not the symptoms.
                  As basic as this might sound, often the best help you can offer to someone with an anxiety disorder is to put your hand on their shoulder or arm, and physically reassure them that things will get better slowly. If that is not possible, or if you know that they don't like to be touched, reassure them with words. Listen to them. Never ridicule them or tell them that their worries are unfounded. Simply listen to them. Let them say what they have to say without interrupting them. And often their tension and anxieties will slowly shift, and they will feel lighter, as they get the feeling that they are not alone, and that there is someone who understands their troubles.
