Anyone else?

Hi, for the first time last year I suffered with anxiety & depression due to many things. I have always  been the strong one in my family & amongst my friends however last year I think my body & mind gave in. I have fought & fought this, evetything seemed to be going well. A week or so ago I could feel my nerves kicking off again..over the weekend I woke up quickly as I couldn't breathe & became frightened, I have experienced this again tonight & feel sad that I hope the anxiety is not appearing again? Does anyone have any advice or experienced this?

      Thank you, that is very kind! I am fine thank you & feel so much better even though it has taking much fighting. I started a new job about a month ago & it is not going all that well, the people are lovely however I am bored & not stimulated enough plus the MD is rather arogant & has no sensitivity so I am wondering if this is what is triggering it all off again... I am now searching for another position as I don't think I am able to stay here :-( thank you & I hope you keep well..it is not nice at all to experience!

    Do you know if anything triggered it? Anxity can be totally random.

    This illness can happen to the strongest people speak to a professional about medication and therapy, when anxiety comes on try and keep youeself busy to take your mind off, You sound like a proud person, but speak to your family it really helps.

    Stay strong

      I don't wish to take any more medication, I can fight this without it is just unfortunate it has come back again, well I think it is that! I am keeping myself busy & trying not to think it, so hopefully I can get through this again..I do now talk to friends & family as at one stage I wasn't as I didn't wish to appear weak however I only feel this experience has made me stronger which is a good thing... I am a proud person & always wish to be there anytime for my family & friends..I will still strong, I promise... Thank you for your time & advice, you are very kind. Take care..

      I also beat anxiety without meds, it is possible. I'm going through a relapse right now, but I was good for almost five years. You can do it! If you need any help, post on here and feel free to send me a PM.

      Good luck and all the best!

    I was also once the strongest and happiest person out of friends and family, nothing bothered me. I am still pretty happy really but the anxiety has strucked me down pretty bad. I try to just adress it, i find the cause of my anxiety and i discuss with myself or a friend and assess why i shouldnt feel this way for that reason. If any of that even made sense

      It is so hard when the strong fall however I have found this whole experience to be very rewarding as I think it is a sign of strength to admit things are not going well, then we face them & hopefully fight them! I am sorry to hear you have had the same experience & you sound like a very similar character to myself! I truly believe you are doing the right thing by talking about it & addressing it otherwise it lingers then only becomes worse! I am going to follow this too, my husband works away all week which I find incredibly of late however chin up & I will get through this especially with all the advice from people on here..there are so many people suffering with this of late, life styles much have changed! You take care & thank you for your time & advice, it very much appreciated x

    Sounds like your having panic attacks.  Try writing down what caused you to feel that way.  Maybe start a diary with writing you thoughts and feelings down so you can get some perspective on what possibly is going on.  When you have fearful thoughts.  Write thoughts about how a good, caring friend would respond to those thoughts. Have you seen a doctor about you thoughts and feelings.  You may want to, to rule out any possibly physiological illness causing you to feel this way.  If there is nothing physical wrong with you, seek mental health help.

      Thank you, that is sound advice & I thoroughly appreciate your time! As I mentioned above, I have started a new role & I don't think I am truly happy here.. The MD is quite arogant & had no compassion, I am getting the impression that it is a case of they are always right! I am bored as it is a small company however what I have been brought into do is not really at full swing & they keep changing their mind as to what they wish to do going forwards, so I guess I am not sure what path I am going down & it is getting tough to drag myslef out of bed each morning.. the positive side is that I am a good position to look for a new role so that is what I am currently doing..However I will monitor my feeling etc & I am sure I will get through it...I was at the Doctors so much last & was out on medication however I only stayed on this for a few months as both the Doctor & I didn't think I required this any longer & for me I don't wish for medication I can do this without!

      We have to help ourselves & I will look back at my notes from my therapy sessions last year which was so helpful...thank you for your time & I hope you keep well :-)
