So I have anxiety but it doesn't stop me from functioning. In fact, since developing anxiety, my grades have improved drastically and I've done better in my social life and in facing my fears. Anxiety made me dig deeper to explore my fears and intolerances.
Thing is, I'm not really afraid of anything or worried about anything anymore as I've faced my fears and realized they're not necessary. The unknown need not be feared and that in some instances, it's perfectly fine to feel afraid. But I still have the symptoms and they are uncomfortable. I mostly get headaches, feeling slow at times, a feeling of increased pressure on my head that increases when I place my head on my hands or lay on a pillow. At moments I feel like I'm having difficulty breathing, but because I know it's all in my head and that I'm not really struggling to breathe, I don't worry about it and keep on moving.
Here's my question: What can I do to relieve the symptoms? I've signed up to speak with a counselor at school and I'm willing to talk about anything if it'll help. But like I said, I'm not really afraid of anything to the point of anxiety though I'm willing to dig deep and explore me.
