Haven't ate/drank anything in two days.

Posted , 5 users are following.

I am so afraid of being poisoned by something like cyanide, I won't eat anything or drink anything. I have a history of severe anxiety, but this is very new. I feel like I am going to die and I don't know what to do anymore.

    The chances of cyanide are so remote as to not justify a response but not eating or drinking will cause kidney damage and then you will be ill .

    suggest you have some boiled water

    You must at least drink, start with water, then try weak juice and go see your Dr.

    You have had brilliant advice but I'm concerned you are self harming  by placing your organs into danger for attention 

    if you are worried about cyanide and don't want to die then why try to kill yourself in the most painful way imaginable, with possible long term serious illnesses

      Hello Brandon.

      It amazes me the thoughts that anxiety puts into our minds and then has us believing and fearing them.

      All you are feeling is anxiety. Even the thoughts you are thinking are a offshoot of anxiety,created by a tired and anxious mind.

      I can assure you that you won't be poisoned. You got this far in life eating and drinking and you are still here...alive...fit and well.

      Please don't be scared. Try and eat little and often. Even if it's just little bites of things to slowly train your mind that it's ok,there is nothing to fear.

      Im so glad you have spoken to your mum and dad. You need lots of support right now.

      Have you been under a bit more streets and pressure lately....exams..deadlines ...work maybe??? All these things can heighten our anxiety which can in turn trigger thoughts that frighten us. 

      I would advise you to get a appointment to see your Gp or go to the hospital and ask to speak to the crisis team. Even if they explain to you how anxiety works...it can sometimes reassure us that things aren't so bad afte
