Hi...I have just joined the site as I am feeling a bit scared and isolated with lots of symptoms connected to anxiety, ocd, menopause and other issues. I hope it will help to share with others and not feel so alone with it all.
I have what I call my coping tools and I write lots of positive lists but some days the fear and dread make it difficult to face the day and I struggle getting out of my flat. I feel safer being home.
Symptoms include....dread and fear,exhaustion and feeling so weak that it is an effort to face anything. Breathlessness and panic, bloated and upset stomachs....the list goes on. Also the ocd symptoms which can be debilitating. I would love to hear from others and their similar experiences, it would be such a relief to not feel so cut off it is hard to explain unless you experience it and it helps so much to get things out in the open. I also experience a lot of shame and sadness about past events and some days it rears its ugly head and I feel this immense sadness inside. Thank you for reading....Ellie.
