Bad days

Posted , 5 users are following.

So had a good few weeks anxiety wise then last week it started coming back. The last few days I've been feeling crap and yesterday I felt awful. Head pressure, neck and back tension, dizziness and not feeling right. This morning I wake up and I feel crap still, the tension and dizziness is still there and I just feel really emotional. I've burst out crying already this morning and I don't even know why. I'm lacking concentration, it's even hard trying to type this right now. My eyes feel tired and I feel like I'm gonna lose control of my mind and body at any minute or die. It doesn't feel like an attack, I wanna say it's anxiety but of course thinking it's worse and I'm dying. It doesn't help I'm home alone with my 2 little ones sad why does it seem after having good days, when the bad ones come they seem so so bad and awful? Anyone else feel like this?

      I have bad Health anxiety and I think I'm dying all the time. Sounds silly now writing it down lol. Hopefully the cbt will help you! I haven't been to the gp about it as I'm too scared! I don't want them running tests on me and finding bad things silly as it sounds! X

      Hi Sarah I'm exactly the same! Most people with health anxiety will go to docs or hospital for reassurance but I won't go near them! I don't take medication. Only thing I will take is a paracetamol! How do you manage your symptoms if you don't mind me asking. E.

      I don't know how I manage them really, I just try get through them although it's becoming harder. The only things I do take to help are rescue remedy and kalms herbal tablets. Then use lavender gel before bed to help me sleep.

      I'm scared something will happen to me while on my own with the kids too! I've been feeling like this nearly a year now. It started a few months after having my youngest even though I've always been a little anxious but nothing compared to this. Hate it !
