Anxiety hit me in the face as we entered 2015

Posted , 3 users are following.

It was horrible, as soon as we entered 2015 I felt sick, and I'm afraid of being sick. I was shaking and getting upset because everything which I do to help distract me from anxiety wasn't working, like listening to music, doing suduko etc. The nausea would come in and out - it would be really strong for a while then it would be a bit weaker, but I had horrible butterflies and knew if I went to the toilet it wouldn't be a nice experience. All this lasted a good few hours til exhaustion hit. Now after last night I'm scared of eating and I just want to get away from here (I'm a university student at home for Christmas, so I'm currently surrounded by family, which I know I should be grateful for but I hate explaining to them, the pity and just being trapped and just with people).

Hope everyone had a better New Years!

    I too woke up with that rotten electrified feeling. Im smoking and I know its adding to my angst. Have you tried outside hospitalization? You go from 9-3 for a number of weeks and there are psychiatrists that can observe you. Most cities have these. My whole social life has been diminshed to sitting at the counter and smoking. Leaving the house takes yeoma effort. Takes forever to get dressed and get moving. Lay down a lot. Hope this is a better year but its starting as it ended

    I know the feeling too well Amy those bloody butterflies. Horrible feeling and yes it sends me to the toilet too. Being at uni you should have access to a counsellor?

    Good luck
