Sorry i havent replied yet but ive been a busy chicky enjoying life an what not
I really do admire people like yere selves that have a positive reaction to the horrible things we face everyday !! I've gotten to stage now that I'm not ashamed or embarrased by it and talk freely about it in the last few months. I really dont care what people think of me in the sense that some people have such a stigma about anxiety and claustrophobia and think that "your over exaggerating " or "get over it "! which ive heard many a time myself !
I haven't been to CBT in the last few months because i literally either haven't the time or haven't felt the need and its in these last few months ive gained the support of my family and friends!
One of my good friends in work ( super bubbly and so confident in her work and her approach to people and just an all round lovely girl) and I were chatting away one evening when i called out for tea and she mentioned something (cant remember what it was ) and i thought to myself to hell with it and vaguely told her about my panic attacks and anxiety ! i thought to myself "ur not gonna get support if no one knows and if she thinks ur weird leave her think that " and all i got was a shocked face ! then out of this girls mouth comes a huge story about how shes been suffering for the last few years with extreme anxiety and attacks! i couldnt believe it !! it just shows that u realy dont know unless u are willing to bare your soul so people can bare theres!
Also because ive became so open about it one of my very close friends opened up to me for support as she was dealing which panic attacks secretly and flt she needed help so i gave her my CBTs number and shes now going once a week and feels so much better already !
These 2 incidents really stand out for me ! there really gave me a bond link with friends and gave me the chance to truey tell my story and pass on my positive thoughts on it now !! 6 months ago this was definlty not my story !!

All I was hoping for was some relief but not one attack since, it was life changing.
how did the hypnosis feel ? id love to try it but i think id be a bit nervous
i did the acupuncture and found it brilliant !!
