My Story & Discovery of Anxiety Cures

AmaRai2 My Story & Discovery of Anxiety Cures

“Since the findings of my anxiety cures, I am now a completely different person! I no longer struggle throughout my days and can be a happy healthy mother to my son.”

Ama Rai

My name is Ama Rai and I had Generalized Anxiety Disorder with panic attacks from 11 years old. I am now 30 and, after trying dozens of anxiety cures, have finally found one that works for me.

I think that the worst thing about having an anxiety disorder, for me, was knowing my little son saw his mommy in that awful panicked state. When that anxiety shoots up through your chest, it grips you so hard that you can’t do anything to stop it, and every muscle in your body goes tense and you can barely breathe, and it just keeps getting more and more intense. You feel so overwhelmed and out of control, and you’re frozen, desperate to start screaming or crying or anything at all to relieve the pressure… And in the midst of all this, all I could see was my baby boy watching me with fear in his little eyes. Seeing that look of distress on his face, was what made me go in search of better anxiety cures.

At work, I lived in absolute fear of having a humiliating, career destroying attack. I don’t know how many jobs I have lost through time off for anxiety and for those intense and embarrassing panic attacks. The problem is, whenever an opportunity opens up for you to “step up and prove yourself” the panic sets in. I knew every time a good job opening came up, I would hear my boss say “It’s a high pressure position Ama, I don’t think it’s for you” – so I was stuck in menial, boring work.

I tried a lot of treatments and miracle “anxiety cures” from awful herbal teas to pills, to a full (expensive!) course of therapy with a cognitive psychologist. Sometimes I thought I was making progress but really, when panic set in, nothing worked for me. I then started getting anxious because I couldn’t make the doctor’s anxiety exercises – seriously, you have to be some kind of Guru to master them. Even with months and months of practicing twice a day, I never managed to relax with those traditional anxiety exercises. I needed something that combined the fundamentals of cognitive therapy with a practical, useful tool that worked all the time – not just in the doctor’s office.

I started searching online and to tell the truth, wasted a lot of money on “miracle anxiety cures” that didn’t work, but I was desperate. Then, finally I found one method that did actually work for me, after all the therapy, the sedatives, the herbal concoctions and the gimmicks. It was a program called Panic Away. Panic Away is the kind of treatment that seems so obvious, once you get it – I can’t believe I didn’t think of it myself.

Panic Away is a practical, drug free anxiety cure that teaches you to relax without expecting you to master Guru-like exercises. Panic Away uses a handbook, specialist coaching and video files to train your mind to relax at key moments. There’s emergency help when you feel that first shot of panic, there’s help to stop that vicious cycle of panicking about panicking, and there’s broader, long term relaxation help that, for me, has stopped the panic altogether. It is exactly what my psychologist was trying to achieve, but failed.

Thinking back on all those supposed anxiety cures, I very nearly lost all hope. Thank God I found Panic Away. I am a completely different person these days! I haven’t had a panic attack in over a year, I don’t feel anxious when I need to “step up”, I find it much, much easier to relax and I am generally much happier! I have taken a new, better job (yay!) and I am loving every minute of it (even the stressful ones!) and best of all, my son only ever looks at me with love and delight these days! Every day I thank God for Panic Away.

Anxiety Symptoms

If you experience persistent anxiety symptoms then you may have an anxiety-related disorder. There are a range of anxiety disorders that can be very frightening for sufferers to experience. The main major anxiety disorders are panic disorder, post traumatic stress disorder, generalized anxiety disorder, social anxiety disorder and obsessive compulsive disorder.

Although each of these disorders share similar symptom presentations they all have different diagnostic criteria. Generalized anxiety disorder is the most common anxiety disorder which affects those who experience excessive worries about a range of things and is not limited to social situations. Social anxiety disorder is where the sufferer’s anxiety symptoms are triggered by social situations. Panic disorder is a fear of experiencing a severe panic attack. Severe panic disorder known as agoraphobia is when the sufferer avoids certain places for fear of having a panic attack. Post traumatic stress disorder develops from a traumatic incident that has not been processed properly.

Typical anxiety symptoms are either somatic (bodily) or psychological. When a sufferer becomes completely overwhelmed by the anxiety then they may experience a panic attack where somatic symptoms become more prominent and intense.

Somatic symptoms
• Rapid breathing
• Change in perceived temperature- very hot or freezing cold
• Chest pain
• Dizziness or light-headedness
• Sweating
• Shortness of breath
• Muscle aches and pain
• Vision disruption
• Rapid heart rate
• Shaking hands
• Digestive upset
• Sick feeling in the stomach

Psychological symptoms
• Worry about events that may or may not happen
• Frequent and/ or constant excessive anxiety
• Difficulty handling stress
• Obsessional thoughts
• Paranoia
• Dwelling on the past
• Fear or judgement by others
• Pessimism
• Despair
• Procrastination
• Negative thoughts
• Overreaction to situations
• Avoidance
• Feeling overwhelmed or out of control
• Fear of dying
• Fear of social situations/ social rejection
• Withdrawal from social situations
• Unrealistic/ high expectations
• The compulsive need to check and double check things

Panic attacks can incorporate a combination of these symptoms and can be a very frightening experience. Many people feel as though they are having a heart attack when it is actually an anxiety attack.

Researchers theorize that anxiety symptoms are caused by a combination of biological (chemical), psychological (thinking patterns) and social factors and is influenced by early childhood experiences. When anxiety symptoms interfere with daily functioning then it may be an indicator that you have a serious anxiety disorder.

The symptoms of anxiety sufferers vary depending on the severity of the disorder. If you or someone you know has identified these symptoms then anxiety treatments should be sought immediately. If left untreated the anxiety sufferer could be faced with longer term mental health problems.
