Can't do this anymore

Posted , 6 users are following.

i can't do this anymore, I'm suffering badly now. I'm physically ill and I don't believe my anxiety is causing this. The nausea and the head pressure is too real. They changed my meds yesterday from 60mg fluoxetine as if wasn't agreeing with me to my fluoxetine and 15 mg mirtazapine. 

I geel eel like this is never going to get better! Like there's a dark cloud over me. All I want to do is sleep! I'm scared I'm going crazy! I'm also scared of losing people who matter to me and my job sad 

i I know ive been through this before but it's never been like this. Pleas, if someone has been as desperate as me but has gotten better please reply? I'm so so so scared of life and I just don't feel real anymore! Will this get better? 

Also so has anyone ever experienced like chills/goosebumps over a side of their head?!

    I can promise you it does get better, remain strong. I have been where you are, every headache petrified me, I was convinced I was dying and had a tumour and GP's had missed it.

    You are unfortunately in the strong grips of anxiety at the moment, but I promise you if you remain strong you will beat this.

    Yes, keep strong, try to do normal things even if they are boring, go out for a walk, try to do "small talk" with anyone out there, you will come out of it, i just hope and wish your doctor could give you something suitable, talking also to a counsellor as soon as you can will really help, dont suffer this alone. Be strong, as much as you can, tell yourself ouloud, i will not allow this to rule me!!! .xx

    Quite simply if it was anything more your gp would have picked it up. I know it doesn't feel like it now, but it does ease and you will be able to see that anxiety are the triggers for all these symptoms you are experiencing at the moment.

    It does get better xx

    Hi Rhianna, my daughter gets chills goosebumps and tingly over the side of her head and the back of her head too. She's overcoming her anxiety by changing the way she thinks.

    There is hope. Today is our second day fighting the anxiety and its working so far. We pray now and im so happy to say that today is our second day without medicine.

    I did have several panic attacks today and I had to pray. It worked but it keeps trying to creep up because I have too much time with my mind andI start thinking or over thinking everything i feel and that's also the main cause of these attacks but I'm training my brain to calm down and think differently.

    Have faith, and try to be strong. God bless you. Im here for you.

      Thank you very much. I'm trying today to not let it beat me by just going to bed, instead I'm going to make sure I stay awake and fight it rather than just taking the easy option xxxx
