    Any illness can cause anxiety and depression. The mind and body are very closely connected

      Iris, when so many things happen in life at once it can effect us physically and emotionally. Especially a death in the family and illness. It might be best for you to see a therapist who specializes in anxiety.

      its no different that a visit to the dr for a sore throat for medication and help .

      1 out of 3 has serious anxiety in today's fast pace world. 

      Take care(((hugs)))

    You answered your own question. My anxiety, and my panic. You are in full blown anxiety. If you don't get on meds ,and get this under control, it will go on and on 24/7. Please call your doc, they are very good with this. Reach out.

    When we r stressed our bodies release a hormone called cortisol. This causes anxiety attacks. Very miserable and can be debilitating . Sometimes it can help change your world as it has mine taking prescribed anxiety medication in turn replaces the hormone imbalance the cortisol the bad hormone causing anxiety.

    Anxiety Producing Stimuli causes panic attacks one more. Anxiety is a cumulative condition. The more anxiety you experience in your daily life, the more your other anxiety symptoms get worse. That means that you should avoid anxiety producing situations.  spending time with people that produces anxiety should be controlled, to avoid the anxiety from getting worse. In most cases medication can be a big change in how u think in turn less anxiety is experienced. 

    I tried to explain how anxiety can control our lives. Most people suffer from it in their life time. Especially in today's world. See your doc soon ask what can help you thru this time.

      HI Natalie,

      A lot of anxiety can make our lives difficult. I find meds that control the hormones help give be a better attitude along with talk therapy.

      it takes time to learn the coping tools that can help calm us. 

      I find my animals hobbies and staying busy keeps my mind off. 

      I have a seriously ill child and take care of my elderly father. I know it's not what I choose for my life right now however it is in my heart to do the right thing and be there for my family. I am the only one available the responsibility is mine. I have read as much about stress and learned many coping tools. This is my experience I share with you. 

      This will pass too! You will get better !
