Everything feels frightening

Posted , 7 users are following.

This has been coming for weeks..with the creeping of christmas doom, work issues and no support. It came to ahead when I went to my mum's for xmas (didnt want to be alone). I hated being there yet when the time came to go I panicked and cried as I was back in my fkat all alone again. So throughout the week, I kept going back spending most the day there. I would come back to my flat to sleep and it dawned on ne that I just cannot do this and my emotions took over. I got drunk and took pills and ended up in hospital. In hospital I was horrified and panicking so I called my mum and told her. I fidnt want to and hate myself for needing her and relying on her again. I was so panicky that I wasnt well enough to go home the first night but then on saturday I went back but went to my mums as i couldnt bare to be all alone again. And now im back alone for good.

Im not allowed to take my medication for a week due to impact of overdose and my anxiety is through the roof. I keep panicking that I cannot do this alone and be here and the rooms feel lonely and frightening all over again.

I dont know how to keep doing this.

    Do you have a dr that would be able to help you with fear of being alone. Do you know why you experience fear. Has something happened to you regarding being alone in which seems to cause fear. I’m sorry that you are suffering so. Please keep coming back here and keep telling us more so that our support can get you through the week. Please try not to mix pills with alcohol it may stop your breathing

    Oh my goodness , I’ve been on this forum for 2 years and never have I found someone so similar to me.

    When I was very ill I absaloutly hated being alone, I still don’t really like it, even tho I’m better now, I get the odd moments where I’m alone at home and I get this awful scary feeling like I’m dead, but never as bad as I was at the time I was first diagnosed.

    Listen the thing that helped me the most was walking, I would just get out and walk where their was people, looking around the shops or just a stroll.

    Your not on meds at the moment so things will be a lot worse yiu need to tell ur self that, and really really fight it. You need something to distract you , put the tv on a bit loud at all times so you don’t feel that eary quietness , also an adult colouring book is good, taking a long bath but still have the tv on , and talk to ur self say u will be ok . Are you religious at all?

    Xx

    Hi K8861

    Do you have any friends you could hang with? What about a pet? My dog keeps me going, without a doubt. Do you get anxious in public places or could you go hang out at a coffee shop and read a book or something? I hope things get better for you soon.
