Hello everyone, i am new to this forum. to start i had my first panic attack in march and ever since that day i syopped taking my birth control pills after 3 years. Well ever since i have had bad anxiety, my body shakes, i get really dizzy when i start hyperventilating, my heart pounds, my muscles get tense, my chest begins to tighten. It is very scary. Well ever since that panic attack i have breb worried about my healt. I worried with any single pinch or headache and always think i am having a stroke or heart attack. I am constantly checking my self in the mirror to make sure it is not a stroke. I have lost a goood amount of weight, idk if its anxiety or the withdrawals from birth control. It is very scary.
Due to this, i have develop a constant feeling that i will suddenly die and leace my family and my 3 year old son. When i think about leaving them my anxiety takes over me and i began to feel very depressed. to top it off, i have read anxiety forums where people have said many people feel like they are going to die soon and then they die. This was what made my life soo difficult. I have this constant fear that because i have this feeling , i too will suddenly die. It is literally taking over my life. I feel So scared daily. I do have the opportunity to talk to people and get my mind distracted which causes the feeling of "dying soon" to disappear, however, it always comes back, the fear of one day dropping dead of a heart attack or something because i feel like i will die soon. I dont know if its my anxiety causing me to believe this but i just cant live like this.
I do see a therapist and he has helped a little bit. I just need to see if i am not the only one feelibg like this....
