Anxiety is back? :-(

Posted , 8 users are following.

Hi all

I thought I've been doing pretty good recently, I haven't had any bad episodes since my heart monitor which showed normal sinus rythym.

BUT today our local vicar (42) did his service and while walking to his car suddenly collapsed and died!!

This has brought my anxiety back!! Now I find myself googling why a healthy 42 year old what eat right and exercised should suddenly just collapse and die!!

How can go on knowing that could happen to me! :-(

    Oh no! That's a very traumatic thing to happen to somebody close to you. How long was your anxiety gone before it started up again? Are you doing any treatment?

    Oh no that is awful that is so young. A few months ago this happened to a man where my partner works, he walked out of work to the car park and collapsed and died of a heart attack. That started of my own anxiety again. I spoke to my doctor about sudden heart attacks, and was told when a person dies of heart atttack at a young age it is usually down to an undetected heart condition, very high cholesterol, high blood pressure. My heart goes out to your vicars family.

    I know so horrible. I don't know if he had any of what you said,but he did cycle a lot for charity so I'd presume he would have had his heart checked? Now I'm thinking have they missed anything with me,? Like are all the tests I've had actually mean. Itching :-(

    i sympathise what a shock, oh dear it always happens to those who least need these things in life.  i am like you, absolutely obsessed with worrying that i shall die of a heart attack, had all flutters like you, all i can say is relax right down by anything just anything that helps you ie. music , fresh air, talking, wathcing fun TV until it all is back on a level in proportions, but i like you need constant reassurance - if GP has checked thats all ok then...............

    Wow you actually got rid of what so many of us are trying to do, yet trajedy of the worst kind hits your life and so does Mr i am going to reak you out disease.You know my friend I also was fit as they come work out was always eating healthy intill the day i was sitting at a golf course having my lunch 2 guys tied to car jack me they beat me till they had no air left in them. I don't know how I got away but that was 2002 and it was the beginning of my bad health. I am always afraid the most now when people just walk by me so I can relate to your fears. I worked at a cemetery for over a year and they trained us to believe that death was a celebration of one's life. So as a counselor there i talked to so many people who lost love one's and those who wanted to plan there arrival here the last stop. I use to cry and shake sometimes when it was the children that came in.I sure hope you can find what ever gave you that strengthbefore to beat the silent few us who cry under our breath. Eric K

    Hi,just read your post.

    I am going through exactly what you are going through right now.

    I heard of a news of young guy passed away of heart attack at 32.

    Ever since then i cant stop thinking it could be me.

    Sigh,i feel fed up already with this thoughts.

    I have had it for almost 6 mths now.

    I have a young son i need to be around for and this thoughts of dying just messed up my life alot.

    I cried alot and just kept on questioning why this thoughts cant escape my head at all.

    On top of that everyone in my house is taking over my son and make it sound like im not important to him and that makes me feel worst.

    My husband understands but i cant expect him to feel what im feeling especially the physical aspect of anxiety.

    Good news is im shifting to my new home soon as now its under renovation.

    I cant help but to worry what if i die,what if my son grows up without me..what will happen do without me.

    All this things are funny if you think about cause im 23 and healthy.

    No high blood pressure or anything.

    Got 2 ecgs got all clear from docs.

    Both docs advise me on anxiety as they feel thats the main problem for me.

    I just hate the physical symptoms of it.

    So i completely understanda your plight.

    Even now im feeling the symptoms..like my chest feels tight anf d my left side just feeling sharp pains..
