Depression, and extremely, panic attacks

Posted , 6 users are following.

I have been diagnosed with a brain tumour recently and my symptoms are getting worse I waiting for an appointment 10th April to find out if I'm having chemo or surgery. I also suffer chronic pain all through my upper body since last year after a bad experience with gallbladder removal I suffer from epilepsy and had a grand meal. Seizure under the anesthetic. My depression is sky high at the moment and panic attacks are getting me down I'm 28 and going to bed every night emotional and worried incase my head just bangs my husband works nights so that doesn't help really. I'm so scared of dieing I'm terrifed I feel I have nobody to talk to, I know I can talk to my husband but I don't want him worrying. I'm a wreck at the moment 😢

    Hello. It helps to talk so it's good you're reaching out. You are dealing with a lot right now but first and foremost you need to seek help for the depression. There are many things to make you feel better and many people to talk to. You are young and can fight through this. Take care.

      Thank you I have been to my doctors and they are putting me on strong antidepressants, I also going to see if I can get some professional help as I have a bad past I can't seem to get over 2 and half years ago I got out of a bad relationship my ex used to beat me and mentally abuse me which I haven't really dealt with I don't really talk about it I bottle it up. I recently got married in September and he is amazing and treats me like a queen but I find it hard to open up. Xxx

      It is good that your doctors have put you on stronger antidepressants - i hope they start to kick in as they can take a little while to start working , from what you say you certanly need to get out all that has been building up inside an that is where a professional can help then maybe in time you will be able to open up to your husband , but you are making the right step in getting some professional help , therapy , you need to love yourself , your ex treated you in a terrilble way but remember not all men are like that , your husband has proven that there are good men out there , just do little steps , have you thought about hobbies - i do colouring for grown-ups which i find helps my physical health as well as mental health as i have to rest alot due to physical health illness , please take care xx

      Sometimes you do just need to share how you are feeling - tell others who suffer from depression by writing it down , getting it out of your mind . The Box Frame Gifts an Hampers sound lovely an a ideal way to keep distracted from your health problems , please take care xx

    Go to your GP an tell him/her how you are feeling , you need some form of therapy to be able to express your thoughts , feelings - talk through how you are feeling , get it out so you don't have it going through your mind all the time , if you are not able to attend therapy then write a journal on how you are feeling , draw pictures , etc - in anyway you can express yourself , i can understand you don't want to burden your husband but you need to talk to him as well , are there any charities that can support you through this terrible time , if you take antidepressants then maybe your GP can tweak them or offer a anxiety tablet , maybe some form of medication to ease you into a gentle sleep , please take care an write on here as much as you need as i am sure there is someone who can suggest better ideas then i have , xxx
