Then you probably have to take yourself back to your childhood to fine the cause of of your or the answers mental parts. There is usually some trigger that causes these problems. Search yourself for an answer.

Depression is the impression left by fear. Be willing to fight the fear. Conquer it with love.

I've noticed after a weeks worth of it that it seems to help best against the physical problems associated with anxiety the shortness of breath, feeling faint, random pains, body parts going numb etc. Once any of those are felt if you keep telling yourself to override or ignore it rationally it goes away without another problem. The only downside to this is I have yet to actually capture any of the mental parts of it. It works perfectly for the physical but I can't seem to catch the mental before it's already too far gone.

Your are experiencing Bio-Feed back in my mind. This is how I got through my life. I was so happy to teach myself all you mentioned in your post.

Depression is the impression left by fear. Be willing to fight the fear. Conquer it with love.

I do a lot of thinking on the topic of anxiety day in and day out. To understand it and work on ways to subdue it. I want to share what I've found to work in my situation with you all so that maybe you can receive some relief from the monster within known as Anxiety.

As we all know Anxiety is a chemical imbalance in the brain centered around Seretonin which deals with the bodies natural sense of relaxation. Essentially our bodies are constantly in fight or flight mode even when there's no reason to be thus the brain is telling the body something's wrong even though the body's like, "I don't get it, what's wrong?" Adrenaline is constantly pumping through the blood stream which can cause irregular heart rates and poor ciruclation in hands and feet as blood is re-routed to the stomach, heart, brain, and muscles. So how is it you can stop something that has such control over your body?

Here is what I've found out. There is a distinct difference between the rational part of the brain and the subconscious part of the brain. For example I had a colonoscopy a week ago and no matter how much I tried the relaxation techniques all my vitals were through the roof and the doctor told me, "of course it did that, even though you tried to say everything's fine and dandy your subconscious was saying, "he's going to stick a tube up my rear!!"". So I thought back to a time when I had overcome something my body told me I couldn't do.

I used to run track and I was always a sprinter but one year the track coach kept me on long distance, when she would tell me go run for about an hr she'll get me when I'm done I kept thinking immediately, "I can't run for an hour no way" but as I was doing it I kept thinking to myself how after the next lap I was going to quit, then after the next lap I would quit and before you know it the hour was done. In essence I was overriding the subconscious part of my brain telling me I couldn't do it. By blocking it out with, well just one more and then I'm done, then just one more, and before you know it I was done.

I believe the key to defeating anxiety is using the rational state of your mind to override those hidden messages your brain tries to send out. In other words if you've been like me and been tested for every health problem under the sun and told you were fine. Whenever your arm or chest starts hurting tell yourself, "I've been tested I'm fine, it's just my mind playing tricks on me". Or say whatever is needed to replace those immedate thoughts of somethings wrong with something that can outlast it and before you know it the spell will pass.

I know this post was extremely long but hopefully my experiences can help someone out there.
