    Oh no......breathe into it....close your eyes....I think its anxiety....know it is....but if you are really distressed then you must dial 111 get proper advice....the anxiety catches us out especially if we get a tad cocky .....it's a horrible thing...but you know that...well done for managing for so long....the more you worry then the worse it gets....tell it to go away....leave you alone ....bless you....let's know how you get on...J x

    Gosh this can be so uncomfy! See if you can stretch gently, massage your arm, chest and under arm on your ribs. As for thoughts bring yourself into a present moment and stop all the thinking about future or past, concentrait on a present moment and present perception, tell yourself what you are doing right now e.g. I am looking at my dog, my hands are resting on my laps, there is bird singing outside etc. if the anxiety leaves but you still feel discomfort then you need to visit a dr. I wish you lots strength and goodness!

    Thankyou all for your advice I have tried my best to tell it to go away it has finally gone away the only thing us now I have the worst belly pain like above my belly button and across it to the point I can hardly walk 😢 I don't have a clue what's going on its horrible though I massaged my shoulder which helped a little as when I touch it the skin is kind of sore too .

    I hate this so much I can see me going into a panic over this pain though because I'm scared it is my heart causing stomach pains or a ulcer or something not nice at all my brain I on overload trying to self diagnoise 😔 xxx

      It can be a number of things, like constipation (I had it this way once and freaked out so much I had to go to emergency, they helped me) it can be irritated stomach from all the nervousness, it can simply be gas in the stomach pressing (those can make you feel really unwell, even think you are having problems with heart) it can be also coming from the back when the nerve is being pinched due to muscle tension. 

      I also need to reassure myself many times you are not alone. There is a deeper fear that is behind dying, and that is the one that will set you free when you heal it, it is what awaits us after, will I be still there or will I stop being, how will it all feel, will I be scared or will I feel amazing. Just know that we did not originate from nothing, universe and this earth are just too remarkable and function in such an organized way.

      Practice being in the moment, one day we will all go one way or another, and when time will come it will be nothing like we thought it would be, because brain can not grasp what is beyond it. You see when you live in fear all the beautiful precious moments pass, you are not living in now, you are living in your fears. Fight your thoughts, shout stop at them, and even stop your mind going to your pain. You can also try lying on the floor and say "it's okay take me, if I need to go I will, I am curious to see what is on the other side" I did this once and it did remarkable things, there was no fear after this for good while.

      i hope you are doing better today?
