    I have been suffering with anxiety and a general feeling of worry all day. I’m not in full blown panic but I’m so damn edgy it’s not funny. My Jaw is all tense and my mind is spiralling all over the place. I did some yoga and that set me straight for a good while. It then came back. I had a nice hot shower and it went away for a while also and now I’m lying in bed suffering again. Does this happen to you guys? Do you go through a whole day with just a nasty feeling of worry all day? Maybe someone can give me some tips on how to settle this down. I’m getting ready to take a Xanax soon if this doesn’t stop.

    I know exactly how you feel. I deal with this on a daily bases. I have PTSD. It's not a fun feeling at all. Did you see something or hear something to cause you to feel this way? Are you overthinking about something? Honestly what helps me is constantly keeping myself busy throughout the day. Go for a walk, go to the gym, go for a drive if you can, call up someone and have a conversation, listen to music, draw or write in a journal on how your feeling at the moment. A lot of these things help and the ones that don't I try and find something else to do. You will get through and keep your head up.

    I think I need to see my shrink again. I use to get bouts of panic and it would go away. I was diagnosed with panic disorder but I feel like it’s changed now. I’m not panicking much anymore. It’s more like a generalized anxiety now. A constant worry or stress feeling in my body. I feel so tense most of the day. My jaw gets tight and my stomach gets knots and gassy. I have to stop myself from throwing up cause I feel so nauseous. I am overthinking my anxiety. I am anxious about being anxious.

    I constantly have to store myself from throwing up as well. I shake my leg constantly and bite my nails then I start getting gassy and anxious very easily. So I have to constantly walk around, constantly moving. I’m a college girl which makes it harder for me to focus in my classes and sit still. But you should talk to your shrink again and see what he/she says.

    It definitely no longer feels like panic disorder. I don’t panic much because I’m so use to stopping the panic attacks. However, I am left with terrible anxiety. I did some mindfulness mediation earlier an I feel a lot better. I still got a tense jaw though and a bad headache. How are you doing today?

    Much better. I managed to get a little bit of sleep and my jaw isn’t so tense anymore. I will get up and go for a nice long walk today to make sure my body doesn’t fill up with stress. Sorry to hear about your bad day. You suffer from PTSD?

    Oh good I’m glad you were able to take a nap and was able to ease up a bit. And thank you it got better when I got home. And yes suffer big time from PTSD. I posted my story on the PTSD story called “My Story”.

    Yup, I sure do, and yesterday was really bad. So bad in fact that I gave up on the day at midday and tried to watch tv for a while. That didn't work so I went to bed. The flashbacks are driving me nuts. Well, I suppose I'm already nuts:D I feel a bit better today though. I should do some meditation. I think I will put some subliminal's on now as they help me too.

    How is everyone right now? I am having a much better day. Still a little tense, but nothing I can't deal with.

    I had a much better day yesterday thanks. I've been listening to the subliminal's and I really think that helps a great deal. My dvd even decided to play. Although it wouldn't load the first disc, it did load the second and that helped me to fall asleep easier. I didn't have so many flashbacks yesterday.
