    I was told by a Dr appt this method only I was told to exhale quickly like it’s a sigh of relief and that sends a msg to the brain that it’s ok is that true?

        What Medication (s) Are you on that don’t help!!! Maybe you need to find the right one with the help of your therapist/psychologist….. Just a thought!!

      Tina..what meds are you on for your anxiety ? What else are you doing besides taking meds for your anxiety attacks ? I developed Generalized anxiety disorder when I was only 10. I am now 64 and chronically ill. .which contributes to my anxiety. I am on meds too..I would like to talk more but hoping you can answer those questions..that way I have a platform to work from. I am not a doctor..I am a woman who has suffered with this disorder for many years..its just nice to know, before I go opening my yap where you are in your treatment for anxiety. Looking forward to talking with you more. Sandie
