    How do you get rid of this

    Ive had anxiety off and on for 13 yrs, been on benzos all that time, now I have it and dont now why, im really scared. One doctor said my serotonin was high so I went to another psychiatrist who said the test isnt reputable and put me on fentazmine which helps a little but I'm on Klonipin and want to get back on Ativan but afraid I cant. I feel Klonipin would be a harder anxiety med. to get off because I was hoping to get off of benzos. anyone else out there with anxiety or have gotten rid of it??

      A physical therapist told me on Saturday to close my mouth and breathe through my nose. I had no idea i wasn't breathing right!! She said that when i am breathing through my mouth, i am not filling my lungs with air. She said i needed to breathe in through my nose and exhale through my mouth..

      The best therapy for me is to pray.

      I was taught to breathe through my diaphragm as a child. My chest doesn't move, my stomach does. Look into yoga breathing. You get much more oxygen.
      I also find walking lowers my stress levels greatly.
