How to cope with severe anxiety in withdrawl

Recommended Posts

squirrel

I went on Paxil for anxiety in 1997. However the anxiety experienced in withdrawl is in a different league altogether! to be honest I find it very hard to handle as slow deep breaths and self talk just doesn't help.I would be very gratefulfor any tips anyone can give me.

squirrel, I know what you mean.

 

All you can do is get from minute to minute, step by step. The slow breathing and self-talk help with that.

 

Are you able to walk 30 minutes a day? Walking helps the nervous system (and other hormonal systems) regulate themselves.

Have you tried something like closing your eyes for just five minutes, and focusing on the black inside your eyelids, and letting go of any thoughts? This is how I started -- just five minutes a day. And, at least that gives your body five minutes of something better. :)
