Hello, I messaged you a while back about quitting my job. I ended up just writing a letter of resignation and turning it in. I went into a panic attack afterwards and worried for weeks that they would call me back about it, but they never did. Within a week I got another job that's 10 times better! They managers understand and do everything they can to help with my anxiety, one even has anxiety himself. Thanks for convincing me to quit. Best decision ever. I'm glad I got the courage up to do it



i hope you got urself an ice cream or something to congratulate yourself!!!



every day:

  • go outside to feel the sun (5-15 minutes is recommended)
  • if there is no sun step outside and inhale fresh air
  • drink water - the more cups the better
  • listen to one song that makes you happy
  • talk to one person you like - do not hesitate to reach out
  • stretch; don’t forget about your body
  • smile in the mirror

I really need some advice . I've had anxiety/panic attacks for a couple of months now they mainly happened in school (whenever I was in class) and it was just really hard to keep everything in and try not to show it . Well school ended and I started to go to therapy everything was getting better until now (that school is about to start). I'm starting at a new school where I know no one , that isn't what scares me, the thought of having a panic attack and not having a distraction does. tips?😫

Try going into this situation with a different mentality completely from last year. Try believing that this is a new school and that you won’t even have panic attacks. Try your hardest to believe that! and I swear some of that will manifest and you will do better. Also, give yourself some credit - starting at a new school by itself can give people panic attacks. Ease into it. Try different things to combat your in-class anxiety: bathroom breaks to go calm down, bring something tactile with you to class, like a kneaded eraser, or even one of those little mind-bender puzzle things. something you can put energy into, basically. When i felt anxious in class I would bring a small notebook that I could just free-write in. they usually sounded like: “i am in math class and I cannot stop shaking, i wish i could just close my eyes without the teacher noticing, i wonder why, probably from that cup of coffee I had, oh well… only 3 hours until i get to go home, i can do this” 

hope this helps.



Note to self: crying doesn’t make you weak



  • Recovery is always an option.
  • You are never “too sick” to recover.
  • You are never “not sick enough” to recover.
  • Recovery is hard, but it is worth it.
  • You have more strength than you could ever imagine.
  • You can get through this.
  • You can get better.
  • You are worth more than your mental illness.

I really really needed to see this

Why we haven’t been answering messages

Hey all, Gina here, first of all, sorry for not getting this out there earlier. We have your messages in our inbox and we know they are there. 

The past two weeks / the next few weeks have been super difficult for me and mod Samara re: our own personal anxiety/panic. In one day I’m leaving to study abroad in Amsterdam for 4 months all alone, and my anxiety has been through the roof as the date approaches. Travel is an instant trigger for me. It’s probably gonna take me a couple weeks to get settled once i get there.

Samara is starting college TODAY and she has also just moved out of a small town into NYC on her own as well. She’s kinda in the same state I’m in and I imagine it will take her a bit to adjust to her new surroundings as well.

As always, we encourage you to go through the blog and look at stuff we’ve already posted. There’s lots of helpful stuff.

Please bear with us as we get through the next few weeks. We’ll be back on track just as soon as we feel well enough!!

Everyone says i should take long deep breaths, but the thing is my abdomen and throat is so tight all the time, i can never breathe properly, even if im "calm"

is this muscle tightness a result of some other physical illness? or is it due to your anxiety?
