Anxiety is so scary. The best thing I could possibly suggest is slow your breathing down. Start with 3 seconds in and 3 seconds out, building up to 6 seconds. Also start some meditation. Go to a quiet, safe place, close your eyes, deep breath and go to a calm beautiful spot. Stay there for as long as you can and practice everyday. Good luck and God bless. Sending lots of hugs

My husband was diagnosed with Plueral Mesothlioma almost 2 years ago. He chose to have no conventional treatments. I have put in well over 1000 hours of research and study on nutrition and alternative therapies. I have put him on a whole food diet - no refined or processed food, no dairy, salt, wheat or sugar. Also supplements to encourage healthy cell rejuvination. He is doing really well so far, which is amazing. He depends on me 100%. It is such a huge responsibility. I work full time from home doing remedial massage "and" look after my husband. I try really hard to keep a smile on my face, as I tell him we have to make the most of everyday and look for the positives in life. I have been fighting so hard to work on and get better from anxiety attacks and adrenal fatigue. No one supports me. I am very much taken for granted. I show people I am calm and strong. It is wearing me down. I cry a lot. My husband has caught me doing this and doesn't want to carry on. He yells at me and disregards me, because it's all about him. He has suffered from depression for many years now - he does take antidepressants. I can't talk to anyone, because no one understands. I found this forum and just needed to vent. I am so sad
