Anxiety all day,,,!,

Posted , 13 users are following.

Well it's 00.21am and I feel totally normal..calm...no unwanted negative thoughts or if they have passed my mind they have just faded away without even having to try. Most nights I feel like the day I had happened to somebody else.

I'm a mess most days. My head struggling and wondering if I will make it through. I'm frightened and either rushing around keeping busy to distract myself or  sitting with the anxiety trying to let it pass over me.

Will all this level out at some point? I mean why am I in such a state all day long and then feel at night like I was never ill.

I'm sat here now thinking that tomorrow I will cope but yet tomorrow comes and yes I get through it but I wouldn't say I cope.

I suppose I should think myself lucky that I'm managing to get some ok time. Is this a sign that my meds are working?

       I'm so sorry hun.. I know what this is like. I'm 21 years old and had my first attack at 13 during middle school. It's been getting worse as I've been getting older. I suffer from depression, OCD and anxiety. My doctor prescribed me Zoloft but with my OCD I'm too afraid to take them. Out of fear of an allergic reaction or side effects. Today I felt so so ill.

    rushing thoughts

    tightness in chest

    heavy breathing

    shacky arms and legs (very hard to stand)

    dizzyness

    heart palpitations...

    at night I get them real bad too..sometimes I wake up gasping from air or I'll wake up jolting. Sleeping on my back is a HUGE no no.

    I constantly worry if I will make it though, and I worry what the heck is going on in my body and if im going to die..so many things...

    its a life long battle..but we are in this together! I think what helps alot too is when we all can relate to one another. <3

    *hugs* hang in there sweety, i can totally relate

    Hi Gillian, im similar to you in that mornings are the worst, then its a slow improvement through the day until when I go to bed the world seems a pretty decent place! Right now (10.40am) im feeling a bit rough and the obsessive thought (that you know about!) Is flying around my head at a zillion miles an hour. Im coming to the end of my 7th week on cit, how long have u been on meds now? Stay strong Gillian x

      I'm 3 days into week 5 Hun.

      Learn to relax with the thought. Accept it's there and don't fear it. Just imagine it as a friend that's tagging along with you got a while. Don't argue  with it and rationalise it. Just let it be there. You will be amazed how your mind relaxes.

      When the anxiety goes that comes with the thought,your mind will have no use for it and push it aside.

      Hooe you feel better soon sunshine xx

      I have no idea Hun. I just think that it will all even out in time and eventually we will wake one morning and set about our day without thinking and then later think "oh wow,I've been great today"!!xx
