    My hearts constantly racing 24/7, is that normal with anxiety?

    If you're constantly in the situation causing the anxiety, yes. And sometimes you can always be in that situation. When in crisis I've been known to jitter, shake, pace etc all the time. It's exhausting, but it's the adrenaline coursing through you, and, although frightening, is not a symptom there's anything wrong with your heart.
    Sometimes the best thing you can do is not think, not wonder, not imagine, not obsess. Just breathe and have faith that everything will work out for the best.

    Yes it can be. Try to consciously slow your breathing, by breathing deeply into your tummy.

    I'll try. I always feel heavily exasperated (constant deep *sighing* ) & my head/mind always feels 'blurred' as well, its hard to describe.. . I'm under constant stress & I've felt like this for years much to peoples dismay. They don't understand y I'm like this 'caus I'm 24 & should have no worries' .

    I'm just really tired now of feeling stressed all the time, I wanna be free.. Is it even possible to overcome stress thats built up over time? ..

    Yes, because I've done it. I was so highly strung just the slightest noise and I would jump out of my skin, and now... I'm not.
    Practice deep breathing when you feel relaxed as well as when you feel stressed, your overall stress levels will start to drop.
    Meditation is good too.

    It can feel like that, but maybe you could search for the local pieces or the good news type ones?

    It is a fact that, when we are feeling low, we only see the bad. When we're better, we see the positives. Having said that, the national media focuses on the bad so I tend to only watch the news online - that way I can ignore the stories I don't want to know about.for instance, had you seen this?

    K often reads it on teletext instead. He finds it less triggering

    Maybe we should have a good news thread where if we come across an inspiring or otherwise good news item we can share it as an antidote to all the bad news around us
