Absolutely amazing to have found this blog entry.....

Absolutely amazing to have found this blog entry..Thank you!My birthday is tomorrow and I've been feeling anxious all week..I have also just moved back home to Greece after 10 years of living in London, so anxiety is on a high anyway with all the adjusting..
Your blog has made me feel so comforted..Its all part of 'social anxiety' as i've developed this anxiety over the last couple of years..But I know, that despite the initial anxiety and feelings of dread I have at my birthday gathering, eventually after some rescue remedy or glass of wine(whichever you prefer) and all the love from my friends, I remember to just let go and enjoy the love...We all need love even if we don't like the attention..I even cried one birthday, from all the love..felt overwhelmed..but its just an emotion..Emotions can scare the shit out of us, but you just have to accept that its ok to feel whatever you feel in any given moment..You have to remember that all that matters is that you are happy, and not think about everyone else..Its your day..It can be as comfortable as you want to make it..:)

Wow. I just read this searching for birthday complexes. I'm turning 24 and I feel like I'm reading myself in the future. For as long as I' can remember, I've had panic attacks. I hate it because unlike you, I can't hide it from ANYone. Everyone eventually gets involved and feels bad for me etc. This just seems so strange for me, that I freak out on my birthday. This totally made me feel better. Thank you.

Congratulations on being well enough to be able to talk yourself through the day. I have had a panic attack on my birthday and on christmas day for years and years. The feeling starts about a week in advance and the day of I feel like I am going to implode! I think this year I am going to seek some kind of meds to help me not feel so incredibly stressed. To everyone with this problem: You are not alone!!

There might be a deeper meaning to your feelings tied with something you can't even imagine. I had the same thing happen to me every year until a spiritual healer suggested it had to do with my mother's anxiety while you were in her womb...

I can relate, too. I guess I don't have it as bad as you do now, but I used to. My shrink told me it's pretty normal for women to have panic attacks at the age I was, which is the age you are now. I used to be unable to speak in any kind of group. Now I'm leading a couple of support groups. No speeches, but I've come a long way. You will too. Happy Birthday.



Thanks everyone!

Thanks everyone!

Hey, I know what you mean. I hate all kinds of occasions. Since I'm the so-called "successful" one in the family I get all kinds of shit on any kind of family gathering. Birthdays are no exception, whether it's mine or someone else's. And when you have only a very few people in your family like I do, you're pretty much obligated to show.

But happy birthday anyway! It probably won't be as bad as you think (it seldom is).

Oh, man, do I relate to what you're saying! I hate being in the "spotlight," too.

I love how you worked through your what-ifs. Way to go! I have been trying to do this as well. But every time I get to the "if they pass judgment on me what's the worse that can happen" part, I feel like I am lying to myself.

I am so terrified of panicking and, as a result, not being liked, not being accepted, not being supportive... all things like this.

So, I am concentrating on reassuring myself I really don't need the "approval" of everyone else. It sounds like Therapy 101, but sill I honestly struggle with being "rejected" or "abandoned."

But, you've done great in this exercise! Way to go.

And, really, it's such a special day. YOU DESERVE TO CELEBRATE YOUR EXISTENCE!

So, Happy Birthday!

Just do whatever feels comfortable, whatever feels right!

Make everyday win win. Anxiety attacks and panic attacks happen when you avoid things that are really scary to you. To reduce anxiety attacks become more aware of your real fears and conditioned anxieties as you go though your day. Win win means you love yourself with or without anxiety attacks! Happy day of birth.



Happy Birthday, Aimee!
