Since the 1st of august 2014 my life has been turned upside down, i was stuck inside the lift at work and had my first panic attack, several weeks afterwards i have had overwhelming fears of having a heart attack with many trips to the hositpal bloods taking and ecg all normal. I overcame the fear because of other problems with anxiety. I cannot shift the thought of losing my mind becoming schizophrenic/psychotic its tearing me apart. I went to A&E because i was having intrusive thoughts about suicide and was met by two psychiatric nurses who told me im not schizophrenic/psychotic and i only have anxiety, this calmed me down for maybe a day or two but again i went quickly backing into the vicious circle of thoughts and thinking, does this ever go away? will i have a normal life again? im currenetly taking propranolol 40mg morning and night and only took fluoxetine 20mg for only 10 days because it made my suicidal thoughts worse.
my worst symptoms are
tired all the time
feeling detacted (daytime is worse)
and sometimes i feel faint like im going to collapse
currently on the waiting list for cbt nhs
