Anxiety is ruining me

Posted , 8 users are following.

so i am 19 and i have suffered from generalized anxiety / health anxiety for 7 years. ever since , i havent lived a normal life. there never is a day where i dont feel anxious physically whether its lightheaded, fast/hard heartbeat , or ahortness of breath. sometimes lasting hours or days even weeks. not only that but t ranges. i feel l anxious 24/7 everyday all day and it ranges, some days better than others , some days worse than others and ive tried so much even meditation. i feel alone. i feel like everyone else gets panic attacks or anxiety here and there but mine is a daily battle. anyone else feel like this??all i want to do is cry sometimes. i want this to go away permanently and just be normal.

    im 17 and i feel the same way 24/7. ive always had anxiety and health anxiyy but over the past 3 years, its gotten worse. i cant remember the last time i actualky felt good for once and was not light headed, anxious, in pain, short of breath and etc. anxiety is such a vicious cycle that is very unforgiving. i dont take meds but i feel like i should be on something. i just want to feel good again. i 100% understand what you are going through snd its certainly not easy. if you need anythjng, im always here to talk. wish you well !

      Did you set up the group chat? If so I'd be interested in joining as I to suffer daily with anxiety. It's so hard to try live a normal life whilst constantly panicking. I've suffered my whole life with anxiety but the past 3 years it's got out of control, mine is social anxiety so I panick going to new or different places. My life is pretty limited at the moment I hardly go anywhere and if I do it's never to far from home. Anxiety sucks!! I can't imagine a life without it but I'm hopeful one day I'll have it under control.

    i just wanna tell u that u are not alone...im also had anxiety( mostly my health). I too feel anxious 24/7 and its been 6 month after i cold turkey my anti depression. I thought i can handle it own my own without medication but the anxiety return because i drop my medication cold turkey not tapering lol. There not one day that im feeling free from anxiety, but so far i can feel that my anxiety more control a bit but still i think a about it 24/7 but just i can control the sensation with help of meditation, mindfulness and natural remedies that i take (ltheanine and magnisium). U should learn it because i found really good and i can relax a bit . Im also learn deep breathing and changing thought to more positive one by doing meditation. I started to change my diet to an healthy one. No sugar , no transfat , food with high fiber and vitamin d and serotonin . im still new to this but i willing to try it. We should create group, message me if u need to talk but i just want u to know that im not so good in english , i hope u understand what im trying to explain .

    Try a dr prescribed anxiety med,prozac is an anti depressant not an anxiety med,it will give you back your life,only take as directed though. Good luck,I know its hard.
