You've gotten some good suggestions, but I wanted to chime in to voice support, as well as send healing and reassuring thoughts.

Someone close to me has been dealing with this, so I can only imagine how difficult it can be. Therapy (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, specifically ACT) has been extremely beneficial to this person.

You may also explore group support, either guided by a therapist (google "Anxiety support group" your city) or even as a Meet-Up group (I was surprised to find Meet-up groups (google "Meet Up," then search your city with key word "Anxiety" or "Support"). I even found a walk/jog group that incorporated mindfulness- time didn't work but would have been beneficial to get input from trained therapist, as well as meet other participants.

The app "Pacifica" offers mindfulness training and practical exercises, as well as an online support community. My Ob/Gyn shared that, adding privately that she had been experiencing panic attacks before seeking help- I've been seeing her for years and never would have envisioned that being an issue for her. She tucks into her office for literally 5 minutes and uses the Pacifica sessions (as short as a few minutes- include music and visual cues).

The books: "Get Out of Your Mind and Into Your Life" and "The Happiness Trap" were beneficial, though depression was part of the picture in my situation (anxiety likely at core, which led to isolation/avoidance coping, which led to self issues).

Please take care. <<hugs>>
