My Life During This Stage
I experienced this terrible frightening stage from my anxiety issues, thank God I did not use substance abuse but it would have been very tempting if I had thought about it. I guess living a healthy lifestyle all my life, substance abuse just never occurred to me. Honestly anyone who reaches this stage is capable of doing just about anything to get some relief, at this stage anxiety gives you no time of your own. Its gnawing at you every minute of your day and most of your nights, sleep is very little if any at all. I was very seriously considering suicide at this time in my life, the only thing which kept me here was God and my three sons. I had lost everything in my life by this time, plainly I just wanted the pain to stop and did not know how.
My experience living my entire life in fear with anxiety is what motivates me to write my articles for your own healing, I just want more then anything to prevent as many other people to go through what I went through. As close as I came to ending my life several times, I am thankful God gave me the courage or fear not to end my life now. For many years I suffered in this stage of anxiety, believe me its way worse then losing your life young to live so many years of a life with anxiety controlling you.
