I am a worrier, I over think every thing and have very little self confidence. But my anxiety levels are at the worst they have ever been and I really have no idea why. My life is good, we have struggles like many but nothing to be concerned about. But I doubt myself all the time, I always think I am not good enough, fun enough, interesting enough, clever enough etc and compare my self constantly to others. I get hung up on stupid things, a flippant comment from a friend, only two kisses on a text, how happy my pets are! I know I beat myself up with my constant irrational thoughts but I do not know how to stop it!
My anxiety symptoms are awful, sleep disturbance, upset stomach, feel like I am coming down with flu constantly, aching, lithargic, headaches, dry mouth,irritability, tearful, cold and hot, nausea, feelings that I cannot cope, dealing with simple tasks scare me. I even look to worry for other people doing things. My boyfriend is doing a gig, I feel nervous for him. It is out of controll. I constantly think I have something seriously wrong with me, but I know I have not. I feel like this most of the time now and have to keep up a front to all those around me, friends, family etc. They dont need to see me lose it! I am on Propronolol but I have only taken them when I am getting worked up about something, but should I start taking them daily to get me through this? I am having major issues concentrating and my memory is so so terrible.. wish I could forget how this all feels but that is very prominent sadly. I am not depressed though and generally I am a happy person but I do struggle to switch off and relax but these physical feelings are killing me Any advice?
