    Hi Paul Just because you go each day and work-out doesn't mean that you aren't likely to get anxious. You need to do something that relaxes you. Watch TV or read a book, something that is going to absorb your mind.  Have you been to the doctors lately? If so what did he say? Are you on any medication? Need more info. In the meantime be easy on yourself and take care.

    I feel the exact same way. Pain and all. I have even stopped working out for fear of all this. Even after my cardiologist cleared me and said my heart is normal and healthy I still can't seem to let it go. I think chatting about it with others who understand what I'm going through really helps. I'm here if you would like to chat. Stay strong. You will be ok. X

    Hey Paul, my dsy sucks too all because of anxitey.. I've had a couple of good days my self then struggling again today. Heads in over drive with anxouis thinking. It's stupid haha. But remember it is just anxitey, jusr an emotion there to try keep us safe but obv ours is whacky today. I find pauls blog on anxitey no more helps me much. If your like me and love sports pauls blog helps as he explains things so you understand and he found running his way or helping things.

    I feel the key to tackling anxitey and low mood is by exercise even a little walk or some stretching.

    It's just your emotional /adrenaline looking for a way out and it seems mine is by attacks. Paul explains anxiety like a cup filling up qnd over flowing And that is can't hurt us it's just an emotion. I find distractings are good for me and I try to see things as just temp and we will be ok soon. I don't believe in taking step backs anymore I try go forward and then if I have an off day I see it as just I've took so many steps forward it is my body adapting. I hope your feeling better soon just remember you ain't alone

      Haha you can do it lad thank of the gym buzz after. I look at it fitness can only do us good. Intense or a walk it's hhelping our tickers and mental health.. Summer is coming up too so we all will be smiling soon man .. I'm currently eating food trying to perk my self up.. I think we all think we go loopy with thus sodding emotion , but apparently the ones like us who fear it end up to be fine

      Paul, do you ever get chest pains whilst working out? I do and that's when I completely stop my workout and end up leaving the gym out of fear. I don't know if that's best or if it's safe to push through it. X

    If you've been given medication and then don't take it how can you expect things to change. Going to the gym is great for you physically and I admire you for working out but you need something that is going to help you mentally. Try the meds or go back to the GP.
