Hope everyone has had a good day. I had a relatively 'good' day. I felt in control and quite pleased with the way I looked. Had a few anxious moments but I survived them and managed to get out and about this morning.

Take care everyone.

    Hi sugardrops

    That's spooky. I've just replied to your other post and wondered how you were doing and here you've answered that.

    I had a relatively good day too. I'm sure fresh air and sunshine help too. Hope you had some of that today. smile

    Hi you guys.Im having a bad day trying to logged into this site.I m getting more and more frustrated.I will get there in the end.Its good to hear you are both having a good day and that things are looking up at the mo.You are right about the sunshine.I really think it helps to get out and about.I find that if I have a bad down day and sit around all day I feel alot worse.I am thinking of going to the docs tomorrow to talk about flu with a few to maybe upping the dose or changing all together.I do not have alot of good days and I find that the anxiety and health fears are not really subsiding.do you all still get these feelings even when you think you are on the mend??It will be good to hear your views.Take care.xx

    Hi JJJ73

    How long have you been on flu for? Is it on 20mg or higher?

    I was on 20mg for 9 weeks and have been on 40mg for 5 weeks now. 40 is working for me i think. Still have anxiety yes.

    The flu doesn't let me have down days. Hard to explain as everything with flu is. Did have a scare last week - thought i might have another kidney stone but seems, according to a fellow sufferer, that this was just another side effect.

    Paranoia is something i'm sure i didn't suffer with before but what i was like is a distant memory now.

    I will return to my former self one day but i know it will be a long road and have accepted that now, well on my good days anyway. :lol:

    Speak soon. x

    Hi jjj73

    I totally understand about the health scares. I'm not as bad now but even when i had indigestion i thought it was a heart problem, saying i'm not as bad now is wrong, i felt like that yesterday. Because i get alot of palpitations any pain in the chest and i think its more. I didn't used to be like this and hopefully i won't be once off flu.

    Just feel like a paranoid idiot sometimes!

    Hope you're okay

    Hi jjj73

    You really do sound like me. If the kids are ill i go into a panic. As far as i'm concerned whatever they have is serious. Since loosing my dad 3 years ago, he had a bad heart but it was a stomach bug that got him, i think everyone is going to die if they get ill. Very irrational but i just can't turn my brain off as much as i'd like to. Before i was actually diagnosed with anxiety and put on flu i visited A&E twise with really bad palpitations, really thought i was going to die, a counsellor explained to me that you get them with anxiety and that i've been checked and there is nothing wrong, true, i try to remind myself of this everytime i panic something is wrong with me. Look who's rambling now. Seriously though i like reading your ramblings!!! :lol:

    Hope you've had a good day

    Take care

    :D Thank you for your comments.My goodness,we could be twins.I am so glad I am not alone with these irrational thoughts.Sometimes I just cant put anything ino perspective. I can pinpoint the start of my troubles.My first son was born whilst my Grandma was ill.I loved my Grandparents so much and felt a huge sense of responsibility to look after them.Anyhow cutting a long,long story as short as I can.My Grandma was ill for 2 years and I and the family nursed her until she died.I had a small baby whom I was breast feeding,trying to cope with being a new mum and things seem to start getting on top of me.My Grandad never really came to terms to losing my Grandma and I felt so sorry for him so I looked out for him for 8 years after my Grandma passed...Inbetween that I fited in 2 more sons...Goodness knows how that happened,various health scares...some quite serious with 2 of my sons and it all took its toll on me as I just soldiered on.I went on Flu 4 years before my Grandad died.I doted on him.He wasmy bedt mate.I loved him so much.I found him dead 1 afternoon.I think because I ws on the Flu is dulled the grieving to an extent and when I finally came off them around a year ago all these feelings of grief.anxiety,sadness,anger and every other neg feeling came flooding back with a vengeance.I am slowly feeling better but sometimes I feel overwhelmed with my irrational feelings.I am so alone and scared somedays.Dont get me wrong,I am not always like this and I really try not to be negative all the time as I think people get fed up with me.I find it very hard being the funny,lighthearted,carefree person that I mostly pretend to be.Thats what I LOVE about this site.You listen,you care and you understand.Thank you so much.xx
