Anxiety when just upon waking up, and chills

Posted , 4 users are following.

Hi ladies

I deal with another issue that bothers me often. As soon as I wake up in the morning I feel so anxious and nervous. Than the chills come. Do any of you experience this also? I am so tired of this. I want to be the person I used to be.

      Anxiety, depression and panic attacks are the worst symptoms. It saps your energy, and makes it hard to focus on small everyday task. It also makes me feel distant and disconnected from my family and friends. Also lately I am becoming fearful of things that never bothered me before. Like traveling. I don't like to go to far unless my husband is there with me. I never used to be that way. I don't watch anything on t.v. that is scary or too emotional now. I used to love horror movies. Now I can't even watch them. I can't watch watch sad movies either. I will become an emotional wreck. I watch a lot of comedy sitcoms and comefy movies. Keeps me laughing.

      My god I want the old me back. I keep praying this transition to finish.

      This was me last year. However, by November I'd really had enough so succumbed to taking an anti depressant - 50mg sertraline once a day. I'd tried HRT patches but to no avail. If you check my other postings (mostly in knee complaints and menopause) you'll read my medical history since March last year, a period of time I never ever want to repeat!

      So, am now much better, feel more like myself, even though hot sweats are still a pain somedays but I'll settle for that! If taking one little 50mg tablet once a day keeps me on an even keel, then sobe it. Menopause is a bugger.......with a capital B!

      Hi Maria, I could have wrote your same post....matter of fact I did. I went from watching all types of tv shows to Christmas movies, bob hope, doris day, andy griffith movies. I didnt want anything that brought me down even more. I got of facebook, stopped texting people and answering the phone to people that had drama. I still dont watch the things that I used to but I have been able to talk to more people, peek in on facebook and watch a few different types of shows. It does change believe me.....but its a slow process. Just know that you are normal....even when we dont feel that way. Take care and if you need anything that I can help with. Let me know...we are all in this together smile

      Yes it did, but I still have days when I feel wiped out and I ache allover! I do also have fibromyalgia which is an absolute nuisance as you never know when you'll have a good or bad day.

      I'm 57 and had a worked at the same place for 30 years. I asked if I could reduce my working week to four or even three days but that was a non-starter, but I felt so poorly I decided to finish altogether. I know I was very lucky to be able to access my pension (I was 56 at the time), but my health came before anything. Never did I ever imagine that at 57 my life would be like this. I'm OK and getting on just fine, but there are days when I wonder where the old me went!
