Anxiety worsening

Posted , 6 users are following.

My panic attacks are bad lately. Whenever someone talks to me in work needing some information, I go into a complete melt down. My heart starts to pound and I go very hot and I can feel my face start to burn up and turn red. My legs start to shake and I feel like I have butterflys in my stomach. Then I struggle to get the words out, partly because I'm panicing, partly because I'm questioning what I'm about to say.. and partly because of stuttering due to a med side affect. 

It makes everything so difficult to cope with, especially work. I just want to quit and walk away but I know I have to be better than my ilnesses. Anxiety is just one of my mental health issues. I have meds, but they dont seem to help. I just wish it would all end.

    I get that sometimes when serving a customer I work in a cafe and it's hard to carry on serving when you just want to run away, if it gets really bad just apologise and walk away, take some deep breathes have a glass of water and carry on, I know we can't this beat us but it's pretty damn hard sometimes! Does your employer know about this situation?

      stress certainly aggrivates our anxieties.  When you have breaks try to find ways to de stress.  Go for a walk, listen to your favorite music, maybe try meditation, especially guided meditation.

    My thorat also goes very tight, and the preassure really builds in my temples. Its like I can feel every beat of my heart in various parts of my body where I feel this preassure. I'm just waiting for a veign to pop, which then adds to the anxiety of the situation I'm already in.. and then I'm just stuck in a tornado cycle of thoughts.

    I've got various meditation apps on my phone, and I try and apply the techniques when I feel myself getting worked up. But they never seem to help in the moment when I'm being confronted by someone who needs something from me.

    I know I'm not the only one, but sometimes it feels like that.. you know?
