Bad morning

Posted , 5 users are following.

Hello all

i have been awake since 5am worrying about anything & everything 

I feel sick, dizzy my stomach is in knots my anxiety is through the roof I having been doing really well the last couple of weeks with my depression but the reason I'm like this today is that my hubby is going into hospital later this morning for an op on his shoulder & will be staying in overnight , I know deep down he will be ok but at the moment I can't get these negative thoughts out of my mind I feel selfish for thinking only of myself when it's him who's having to go into hospital.

    Hello Jean, Best wishes for your husband's operation. Take deep breathes. Can you go for a walk while your husband is having his op, take in the fresh air and loo at the beauty that surrounds you, if you a park nearby that would be a great place for a walk.

    Hi Jean

    Just because you're having a blip doesn't mean to say you're ill again.  You're having a normal reaction, worrying about your husband going into hospital, but your body is over reacting in the way it knows ....... anxiety.  I know it's uncomfortable, but just let the feeling be there, let the thoughts come if they want to ..... there only there temporary and will ease off when your household is back to normal.

    No youre not selfish, it's your body reacting and part of the illness.  In time when you're completely recovered you won't have this reaction.

    Best wishes to you both.

    Hi Jean 

    this you are feeling is ,just a setback I had something similar when I had a wisdom tooth out last year. I had only just started cit and my anxiety went through the roof.My blood pressure skyrocketed.So what you are going through is a normal reaction to a stressor..It too will pass.

    just try and accept what is happening and it's only anxiety symptoms it won't kill you just make you feel awful. 

    try not to let the anxiety have the upper hand think I'm not going to let this ruin my life I will overcome this! If I can do it Jean so can you I was an absolute mess shaking and crying and miserable. It is now a bad dream and it will be for you too in time x

    CIT doesn't take away all of your feelings and emotions, it just makes it easier to deal with them. You don't become a zombie, so give it time and try not to over react to your feelings

      Hey Jean, keep fighting you re too important to give up! Go and s your doc until they get it right the dosage may need to be increased or perhaps alternative meds have you looked into Cognitive Behaviour therapy? you will get better I'm sure of it you just have to findf the right mix then theres no stopping you smile
