    Honestly, I just need someone to talk to. I feel like no one around me listens and I've been bottling up stuff for so long, it's causing me to have severe anxiety that I've never had before. I went to the doctor and they gave me a low dose of anxiety meds to help but they don't do much. I have full blown panic attacks and feel like I can't breathe for literally no reason. I can just be sitting up my room reading and start having a panic attack. Doesn't seem like many people are on here so this may be no help but it would be really nice to just unload some stuff off my chest.
    Thanks

    Seem like you have severe anxiety that is causing some panic attacks as well. my advise to you would be to find a counselor that you can talk to who would be able to help you manage you anxiety.

    I get it. I really do, I'm stuck in it as well. I can only tell you the things that have helped reduce these issues for me.
    - I stopped drinking caffeine altogether. I used to drink a lot of it, now I stick to herbal teas, water, smoothies, that kind of thing.
    - I try to meditate occasionally. Even if it's only for five minutes here or there, it really can help. I found before, when I drank caffeine, even if I hadn't drank any that day, I couldn't do it. Now I can, not on my worst days, but it's somewhere to start.
    - Decent sleep. This one is a sucky one. I've been an insomniac for all my life, but I'mt trying to take control over my sleep. I force myself up early in the morning and make myself get up and do things such as walk for miles until I feel exhausted. I try to sleep between 9-11 and wake up betwee 7-9. It's much harder on my bad days.

    All I can tell you is you're not alone. You really, really aren't. There are so many of us, in such screwed up places with no one to turn to. But, I may not know anything about you, but I am definitely here. I don't know what help I'd be, but if you need to talk, I can listen.
