I was reading one of Stingray's answers and saw this:
"Do or think something that makes you "feel good", not just calm...Good...something that puts a smile on your face"
I can't find anything like that. The best I can do is feel calm. I can imagine something that would make me feel good; but then I can't act on it and I feel bad. Simply visualizing makes the impulse to act stronger; an impulse which gets frustrated, making visualizing a frustrating activity.
If feeling calm is the best you can do right now then that's fine for now.
If you can make it your daily target to just feel calm on a regular basis, there will come a time (probably within a few days of being calm consistently) where your fixed emotional range will shift and you'll suddenly discover you can feel better than calm.. At that point, calm will feel like an easy state to achieve.
Also at that point, you'll notice an interesting effect where those old good-feeling songs and music videos start "working" again for making you feel good.
Until that natural shift happens, it's better not to beat yourself up for not feeling great. It's just where you are right now.
And, to be honest, you're probably not going to hear or understand the advice that many on this site are giving you - including me - until you reach that better-feeling place. Most stuff here will just seem annoying and vague to you :)

Feeling anxiety is not as bad as you might think. I know you won't believe me in your current mood, but at least just acknowledge this as a possibility.
I had endless panic attacks myself for years so i know what i'm talking about. Having anxiety steadily gives you great opportunity to make a quantum leap forward in achieving your desires in much shorter time than others. This is because you are experiencing the contrast and your higher self clearly knows what you do want, which is now a incredibly strong desire.
But knowing this isn't very helpful, right? Here is what i believe will help you in a very short time with your anxieties.
Go to www.mc2method.com and simply use the password "mc2free" (no purchase required)
There is a audio course that will lead you through the tequnique. Just relax and listen.
It's my "emergency-technique" in my toolbox for conquering all anxieties.
It is about getting a taste of your anxieties. But you can only do that if you are willing to confront them. If you do, you will see that they disappear and leave you with a calm, peaceful, wonderful feeling (often in matter of minutes).
