Lilbit84, sometimes I get anxiety for no reason at all. It happens a lot in stressful overcrowded surroundings, or when I can't get to sleep. It also happens when I'm feeling overwhelmed by too much going on at one time. I try to relax with slow breathing, soft music, watching something comical, or reading. And I take Tranxene when needed. 🙏🌼

I never know whether I'm feeling anxious or depressed, it all feels about the same to me.

I find distraction helps, I also take myself to a comfortable place and remind myself I can breath, there really is air. I've also used aromatherapy and Xanax when it gets too bad.

I'm always anxious, in part because I forget things all the time. People expect me to remember names, but sadly I usually won't remember any name until I've known them for a year. Being around people is also hard, because if someone bumps into me they might cause a flare.
Lately, I've been really stressed from PTSD after a minor earthquake, and the media keeps telling everyone "the end is coming" for the ring of fire. I keep reminding myself "this is as good of a place to die, as any," and hope to be alright.
I'm also sensitive to light and fragrances, and if I'm around them I get migraines and extra anxiety. Not fun.

Anxiety causes me to run from stressful and awkward situations. I usually walk away to an open space to have a fresh air and keep telling myself it's all ok no matter what the situation is. Valiums helps me a lot when I need to chill to take a breather.

I love watching movies, I would dump all My stuff one side, so not thinking about work or anything else, it's my alone time. Someone here suggested a feel good box, maybe you can look into making one.
