      Same here. I was totally fine few months ago, due to massive stress at work I got anxiety. But everything is resolved so why am i still feeling it. Was on meds but they were making me even worse. Felt like i was being brainwashed so I stopped. Anxiety is still here tho. So annoying as Im totally relaxed , in bed watching movie with my farting doggie next to me but still get this knot in my stomach and intrusive thoughts

      Noo dont start meds. There is plenty of natural suplements to manage it. L-theanine, wild lettuce extract, lemon balm, vitamin B suplements , 5HTp. All legal and on ebay or amazon.

      Hi Aga . You sound much brighter than few days ago, glad you're getting some sleep. Totally agree posting here is like therapy, keeps our mind off our negative thoughts, while trying to keep others positive, some of your posts make me laugh, great we can laugh instead of the constant feeling down. Half the problem is keeping busy, positive and changing our positive thoughts to negative. Hope Karen's doing better, hope you and Ann have a good day, x ??

      It will do you good going out to people. Will take your mind off things aa little bit. I know you are stressed but we shouldnt avoid things. Easier said than done but true. Once we start limiting ourselfs, anxiety wins and we cant let that happen.

      Im glad you are better 😎im okay , just feeling really tired and got no motivation to do anything lol my list to do things is long but I really cant be bothered. I wish I could just nap lol but then I know if i nap I will have problems with falling asleep tonight. And hubby picked extra shift at work even tho I begged him no to cause I cant handle staying on my own another night. I know its shouldnt be like this but in this state Im in it bothers me . And in october he is going to Poland for 2 weeks to visit his parents. I would have gone as well but used all of my holidays to get better as I dont get paid for sick and didnt want to lose any money. So I will be on my own for 2 weeks. I dont know how im going to cope. Ive got OCD with checking things like doors, sockets, oven. Not once but 20 times and it puts me in state of great stress and triggers anxiety even more. So im stressed about it.

      I really hope it goes away by this time. Cant handle being on my own with this anxiety. I try no to limit my hubby and usually I manage but its been rough lately. Its the meds amd coming off them messing with us. I hope you will feel better. I hate that it comes in waves. You think its getting better and then bam. There it is again.
