I’m writing this post right now because I am dealing with a subconscious anxiety attack. Now, I feel really calm but anxiety tends to run in my family and it happens whether you think you are anxious or not. I have only had two major anxiety attacks in my life where I felt like I was having a heart attack but thankfully with gaining weight and decreasing my stress a bit, they haven’t been occurring like they used to.
Anxiety attacks for me now are something like this:
Feeling short of breathe. Feeling as if my chest is tight and I have to take deep breathes to breathe normally and get enough oxygen.
At first I thought maybe my bra was too tight but I really do think it’s a deeper problem.
Okay I just had to put this in
I also tend to feel a little jittery and can’t sit still when I feel this way. I really wish I knew how to manage this better besides just taking deep breathes. People tell me yoga is a great stress reliever and such but I just haven’t gotten into it. I find myself getting bored 10 minutes in and don’t feel like I’m doing it right.
I am writing this also to seek advice. For anyone that has anxiety problems that you have no idea where they come from, how do you manage it? I don’t want to go on medication but didn’t know if there were any cool remedies for it.
