Has anyone on here ever delt with bad anxiety, and then make a full recovery? I always read posts of people still dealing with thier anxious feelings, and trying to find ways to cope with it, but I never see posts of people who been there who are now recovered, or for the most part recovered. It would be interesting to here from those who have been there and are now in a better place. Also, if you are one of those people what kind of things did you do that helped you to get passed it?

I think we more find ways to cope / live with our anxiety. Not a full recovery as such. Have to try different things and see what helps you the most. Anxiety is just a lot of bad feelings and fear that we get. Can that actually hurt you? I would answer no to that. At most it makes us feel bad at times. If we accept they are all just feelings, we might try and do a bit more. Then the body and the mind begin to get used to those feelings. The anxiety can become less and less strong. The more you see that you can do things, the more you push to do even more. We all have setbacks every now and again. They happen. But we just have to get back up and push even harder. All about not giving up.

Anxiety is a long journey, it seems like you are getting better for along time then suddenly the anxiety hits you. i definatley understand what you are going through. some strategies that i have learnt is:
journal ling
being self awre- mental noting is extremely important when dealing with a mental illness. i use the acronym UBHALT. U stands for uncomfortable B stands for bored. H stands for hungry A stands for angry L stands for lonely and t stands for tired. this took me a while to get so keep working at it it wont happen over night. also doing self care rlly helps or sometimes even just getting out of bead and making it turns your whole day around. try and find a hobbie or something you like doing. for me i sing, play guitar etc. try and make a conscious effort to get better because at the end of the day you are the one that has to get yourself out of the dark whole- sorry but the truth hurts sometimes. try to note things that make you feel better- write them down so you can refer to them when you need them. also what i have noticed through my struggle with anxiety is that sometimes we just have bad moments so try and not let them define your day. also i write down all the thing that i am grateful for in my life such as i am alive and that i can breathe.

another good quote that came from one of my favorite band member of why dont we is that "it could always be worse. remember that"- this quote is reassuring to me as not matter hw hard you issue is there are people in the world struggling to survive

hope this helps
