The past 5 months I have been having bad anxiety on and off, but the last 4-5 weeks have been hell. I recently left my job for another job which did not work out so I'm currently "in between jobs". At first, I was happy about this because I needed a break from everything, but I literally dread every day because of how I'm feeling physically and emotionally. I try to plan my day but it never works out because I feel overwhelmed like I'm nervous - my heart beats hard and rapidly even when resting and my nerves almost feel tight and I feel very uncomfortable. Whenever I eat something these feelings become intense, which I find very strange and I keep getting dizzy to the point where I can't stand for long because my heart pumps, dizziness gets worse and my vision goes blurry. I've gone from someone who never cries, to someone who cries almost everyday for nothing. I'm just not myself anymore and it's the most frustrating thing. I'm so unmotivated, not focussed and I've no energy for the day. I'm just waiting for each day to end. I'm young and healthy, 20 y/o female, 140lbs, I eat well and exercise regularly, but all have that has gone down the drain because the past 3 weeks I've been having mad sugar cravings and have given in all the time because it's the only thing that satisfies me - I've been having sugar binges at least 3 times a week for the past 3 weeks, which is so unlike me as I'm usually very disciplined with my diet and what I eat. I also can't sleep or struggle to stay asleep, if I don't take a sleep aid I only manage to get 3-4 hours of sleep. My mood and energy levels are so low and I'm detached from myself and all that's around me. I'm at the point where I'm so frustrated and miserable that I want everything to just end, waking up everyday is draining. I'm not sure if it's just anxiety or an actual health issue. Please help if you can. Thanks
