I've suffered from general anxiety, self-doubt, and panic attacks for the last twenty years. My anxiety was affecting how I related to other people, so I didn't go out much. I would just work and then go home. I had a bad attitude and when things were really bad in my life, I found myself feeling more anxious. I had panic attacks all the time; I could be sitting in traffic, at work, or sitting at home watching TV. It was happening several times a week and I was always waiting for something bad to happen.
It was very uncomfortable for me and I felt out of control. I didn't feel like I was getting anywhere and I was wasting my life. I had convinced myself in the last couple of years that I shouldn't go back to school because I was going to screw up and flunk out. I've tried willpower to stop the constant worrying, but I couldn't really control the anxiety attacks that way and I always ended up tripping myself up. I have bought a lot of self-help books, but they have never been read, so that didn't really work.
I heard about A New Day Hypnosis through Google. I used hypnosis before to quit smoking and I feel that it's a scientific approach, so I can deal with it. I started noticing results within the first couple of weeks after my appointment. I felt more positive about things and felt better in general. I wasn't as nervous and worried about things and I wanted to accomplish more. I think it's been easier to talk about the things that were causing the problem instead of just trying to fix something without knowing what is really going on.
It's easier to let things go and I haven't had an anxiety attack since I started this process. I don't care anymore about the things that used to really worry me and cause anxiety attacks.
I've started back to school and I have a goal and something to shoot for. I have a new avenue that I want to take and I feel calm and more focused. I definitely feel more confident; I don't feel like everyone is looking at me or that I am under observation anymore, which used to cause panic. The biggest benefit for me has been the courage to go back to school and do what I want to do.
At work, they say I'm a lot more relaxed. I've been told that I seem happier and more cheerful. I go out on the weekends and do stuff and I don't worry anymore. I would recommend A New Day Hypnosis to anyone who is dealing with anxiety and self-doubt because it worked for me. It helped me to get focused and back on track with my life. I have a goal and plans now. I feel confident that I have a handle on the panic attacks because I don't have the constant anxiety. This has been a good experience for me, I have enjoyed it and it was actually a lot of fun.
