been a while

Posted , 2 users are following.

so it has been a while since I have been on here. Tonight has not been a great night. I all of a sudden have just woken up with a feeling lik I am litterliterally going to be sick. Which by the way is my worst fear. Which then spurs my anxiety. Ive been on sertraline 100mg for almost a year now and no side affects or anxiety spurs.

Im not worried or stressed. Before I went to bed I had a dodgy tummy so was on toilet for a little while and felt a bit cautious so before I nodded off to sleep I put relaxing music on and drifted off. 

What can I do to stop this sick feeling? And worry that I will be sick :-( 

I am having signs of anxiety attack im trembling and tight chest... but again this has been spured up because I felt physically sick and still do.

Bare in mind I have to be up for work in a couple hours :-(

    Hi Tanya sorry your feeling like this, you could try some camomile tea to calm yourself, as  for the sickness I'm not to sure as I get nervous sickness but no physical and I have to just get on with the day with my nervous sickness sad I'm up ready to go to work now as so relieved I managed to get up ok as I was panicking last night, if you feel sick you could take the day for yourself, what's the anxiety due to, work or the sickness? Our mind tends to make us feel there's more wrong than there actually is. 

    I really hope you feel better x

    Hi Tanya, yes was a very long shift and8:30 til 9pm today then off for Xmas phew, my anxiety has eased alot after my first shift coz I guess you don't have time to let it affect you, how was your day? No I'm not as I have no trouble sleeping and feel I can deal with my anxiety quite well at the moment this week seems to be a good one. 

    I feel if I turn to medication I'm going to then be dependable on it.

      Evening Jenny. 

      I understand where your coming from I used to be able to control my anxiety then it got to a point where my anxiety just started to control me so decided to go down the medication route.

      I havent been too well since yesterday really.  Went to see my doctors today and I've got tonsillitis.  I went into work today then got sent home. I wont be going in tomorrow. Its half 12 and im up again because it is so uncomfortable.  Unfortunately my boss is a bit a nob. I could be on my death bed and he would still want me in.

      I got a few more days until im off. My annual leave starts 24th right through to the 29th.

      ive got antibiotics for my tonsillitis but takes a while to kick in. 

      How has your day been? What shift you on today?

      Tanya x
