My anxity is caused when I go into a place that is crouded like the grocery store , I have had to adjust my life to avoid crouds
I usualy have to do my shoping at 3:00 am to avoid people. I do what I can over the computer to avoid dealing with other people.

when we become anxious as survivors are our first intentions to give others control over feelings emotions

That theory makes a lot of sense to me, lynchmob. Today I have hightened anxiety verging on panic at times. It is because I am for the first time in my life free of my parents control and allowing myself the freedom to explore my sexual self independent of their abuse, shame and terror.

With what ttoon replied, my main impulse is to freeze and put myself in lock-down. Don't know what else to do with myself sometimes.

Anxiety is like a warning, it tells you...dont go there..or try to stop or fly from it...sometimes when i was a kid i felt anxious about somthing but i could not stop it...now i stil lfeel it when something triggers me...

Wow u know what? I got an anxiety attack reading this thread and thinking about anxiety! Yikes! Power of suggestion or what?! whew!

fresh baked bread...birds...water....sunlight...fresh baked bread...birds..water..sunlight

that's my anxiety mantra that I whisper to myself..or sometimes have to say to myself out loud if the voice going "doom...disaster.."-u get the picture- is so loud that I can't hear my whisper.

It's got soothing words and focusing on the repeating them takes your mind away from the circle of frozen circuitry that it gets into.

When that fails, I take klonapin...but that is in NO way an endorsement for klonapin or any other psychiatric drug. I don't like all my coping tools but I work with what I have till i get sumthing better.
