Frighten

Posted , 12 users are following.

Hi, girls, anyone gets frighten by the slightest of things..somebody only got to mention there was accident and my heart takes off errr..I went to the surgery and i don't feel to relax sitting always looking for something to happen or doing a research in the mind to find something wrong with me.my mind races with thoughts of kinds of negative things, I'm trying to change it and tell myself nothing wrong with me. I hate hear about anyone sick.

    Yes constantly thinking the worse if someone is late etc  and thinking of scenarios that might happen. Cant take lifts, planes and fear even trains! Living in London so terrorism has also not helped. Meditation apps are good - Barry McDonaghs DARE program also good for fear

    Hi Maria ,  since the last year I've had health anxiety .  Started when I started peri menopause .  I avoid any conversation or programmes that have anything to do with health , especially cancer .  I am having a colonoscopy on Friday & my heart rate is through the roof thinking about it .  I try looking on you tube for relaxing ideas to help .

      Hi Therese, I'm having bowel scope test in January don't know if that's the same thing,and yes I avoid all programmes on TV that scares me too.do not think about the percedure just let the day come put your clothes and go,that how I go to things I block it from my mind because if you keep thinking about it your not going to go so block it out you can do it.

      Yep, that's me in a nutshell. Even when commercials come on television talking about cancer or some other disease I mute the television or change channel. Prayers for your colonoscopy. Don't worry, you'll be fine. I know it doesn't help much, but I had one and all was ok.

    Thats just classic peri... when you get a sudden crash of hormones your body releases more adrenaline and cortisol to try and compensate for the loss. Yes these things keep your nody running but they are also your stress hormones so they make you feel really on edge, cant sit still, easily startled, your mind is overwhelmed with these extra stress hormones so it over reacts to the slightest thing too.. so you get run away thoughts , health anxiety etc.

    Just try and remember thats this is not you.. its just your body trying to balance things out. It does eventually.. but it takes time for things to settle. You can try beta blockers as these block Adrenalin and help with all the physical stuff, and when that calms down then you can get on top of your thoughts easier.

      Hi, I don't take anything for the menopause because it effects your hormones then when you stop it gets worst so I try to get through it daily thank you for replying..hope you get better very soon.

      beta blockers are not hormones... they are a type of medicine used to help with anxiety and panic and fast heart rate smile They will have no effect on your hormone levels but will help you cope with the anxiety and panic and help control palpitations/fast heart rate thats makes you feel unwell.

    I try not to get 'all worked over' things..  But today I opened a X-mas card with a nice family photo and I got irritated.  Why I don't know except maybe I'm jealous that I didn't send a nice family photo myself.  I just hate the way I feel about certain things.

    Bowel scope sounds like the same thing. I'm having mine due to bowel change habits , being constipated 1 minute & diorrhea the next & having blood in my stool . Can't help overthinking 🙈 I know I have to get it done for my sons sake if not my own . I have to look after myself for him . I hope yours goes ok & results are normal .  Good luck .
