Advice for Anxiety..

Hey everyone..

Well basically this is how it goes..<edit>

I'm 18 years old and I'm just starting college.. I've done a lot more partying and goofing off than I'm used to over this summer.. And one day I was drunk <edit> Now hear me out. It's been about a month and I'm still having anxiety and anxiety attacks.

My anxiety attacks are mostly short-lived but they do end up ruining my day for the most part. My heart will start racing, breathing sometimes gets a little tight.. not always and I think that I have something wrong with me that's going to kill me.. ex heart condition, blood clot in the brain. (I'm tall and skinny and very athletic) I would've died if I had any of those because of how much I exert myself.

The first thing I did was realize that I needed to go talk to a professional to see what was going on.. This anxiety thing was really new to me and I didn't know how to cope so I was really losing sleep over it. At the same time I was cutting caffeine out of my diet because it made me feel much worse whenever I had any.

For two weeks I was not sleeping well and I was having awful fleeting headaches which eventually went away and now I only get regular headaches when I sleep on an uncomfortable surface such as a couch or a really soft pillow. But anyways I kept thinking I had some serious brain condition because of how long they lasted.

Anyways I saw a counselor once which really didn't help much. But there is a hotline that I can call at any time that really helps me out because they explain why I'm feeling the way I am.

But anyways what I want to know is how hard will getting back to my old self be when I... have a good family and friends supporting me, seeing a counselor, and have motivation to get better.

It just seems like whenever I have a set back I don't know what else I can do. Any tips besides relaxation techniques?
