Hello! my name is Lisa, I am new to this forum since I've been trying to find some online. I am pretty mature for my age. I've had anxiety for a year now and I don't think anyone understands me because mental and emotional problems are not common (rare) where I'm at and does not run in my family, so I am pretty much alone. I have ongoing anxiety and hypochondria and I hate it. it affects my life so much and I worry way to much. I tried telling my mom about it but she tells me I'm just to young to worry and that I should let it go but its not that easy. I try breathing in and out and it kind of helps but not fully. I remember having my first panic attack when I was 8 and the doctors said I was fine. They kept happening and they stopped after a week. Then when I was ten when I had another one. The thing that triggered it was a movie of thing man having a stroke and I began to question what if that happens to me. then when I was 11 I began to worry much more. It became more severe this summer when I had a panic attack for the first time in two years and worrying for me was much more severe and I began to worry about my health more. I've had 5 panic attacks since this summer but hadn't had a an full blown panic attack in two months but little episodes of a fast heart rate and fear if I'm too worried. I feel like I'm never going to get help with this and I'm all alone. That is why I came here. Any advice?
