Exstream Fear thinking.

Posted , 4 users are following.

For the last 2 months I wake up in complete fear. My body acts as if I I'm in terror.  My heart starts beating fast I start sweating and my muscle tense up.  I find I have to talk myself out of these spells, Tell myself everything is alright. I have a roof over my head , a husband and 2 grown children and I have a part time job. It takes me most of the day to finally feel at ease. By evenings I am doing "OK".

I have shared this with my Dr, she only asked me if I wanted to harm myself or others?  "NO"

Has anyone else felt this ?

    Yes! For months until i have finallyrealised there is light atthe end of the tunnel! See the doctor again and ask for a referral to CBT, i had to wait 4 months to see someone, so the quicker you get on the list, the better. Also, try meditation, it helps control your breathing. I had this for months, not always when i first woke up, but at random times throughout the day, completely out of the blue, but it does get better!!!

    I know for me my anxiety is worse in the morning. I wake and jump out of bed with fear. Then it's up and down all day and I'm getting ok by evening. I have been here before,many years ago and got through it so I can offer you the same words that I tell myself everyday " we can get through this,this is just a stage in our lives where our bodies and minds have had enough. If we had a broken leg we would be kind to ourselves and understand that it needs time to heal,our minds are the same"!! 

    I don't know if you have been to the doctors Rose but sometimes just having somebody to talk to and support us is a great help. Reassurance is a great thing in the times we are desperate and scared. I ask my doctor,even write a list and then I come on support forums and look for stories of people who have come out of this the other side.

    My heart is sad for all off us suffering like this. I have lots of support but it still feels like I'm battling this alone. A huge (((HUG))) for you. Xxx
