I feel like I'm about to have a nervous breakdown.

Posted , 8 users are following.

I feel like I'm about to have a nervous breakdown. I feel absolutely horrific, I've convinced myself that there is something truly wrong with my heart, but yet I'm still here. I can't seem to accept the fact that all this Anxiety, Depression PTSD etc etc Can make you feel so worthless. Even though everyone is telling me that there's nothing wrong with me. I'm not sleeping or eating, which is making me worse, I'm really run down right now also. I get worked up doing the simplest of tasks because I have no energy. I'm suppose to be going to London in a week and I'm dreading it. I'm seeing a specialist in 2 weeks.

I'm only 27 and use to be so full of life and always on the go, I have no idea what's happened too me, I feel like giving up.😢

    I would not consider how you are feeling as there is "Nothing wrong with you". Obviously there is, just perhaps not what you fear it is. Don't give up.  There so many people on here that can help you while you find out what is going on. Relax as much as you can, eat what you can as often as you can and rest when ever you are able to.  Do the best you are able to get your strength back, of course you have no energy if you are not eating and sleeping and stressing over it makes it even worse. Hopefully you have friends or family that can be with you and help you. I do wish there was something I could do for you but do not give up. Check out all the different forums here reach out to those who are so much more experienced in dealing with this than either you or I am. We all care or we wouldn't be on here. Do take care of yourself and let others help you.  You are not alone.

      Thank you for your reply. My family have been great, and the friends that I have left are too. 😊 I'm sure there's a light at the end of the tunnel somewhere, just might take awhile to find it. Hopefully seeing this specialist in 2 weeks will help me realise it's nothing more than what it is. Xxx

      Thank you for your reply.

      Yeah, I've seen my gp, had blood tests, ecgs etc fit as a fiddle they say... But dont feel like it right now. I have councilling, and I'm seeing a specialist soon and I'm on a waiting list to see a bereavement councillor also.

      Its absolute torture feeling like this, I've suffered with panic attacks on/off since I was 18, but never had it this bad ever. I always had control and never let it disrupt my life, I refused. But its a different storie this time, too much has happened in the past 2 years and its got the best of me. Xx

      My heart goes out to you Arya, it seems you have had a catalogue of events to make you this way. I have suffered from GAD for many years and more or less put up with it, a way of life I suppose that you can't change. Like yourself, this time it is awful due to my situation and no matter what I do, I can't seem to gain any relief. The next few months are critical to me and my husband. He is the brave one and deals with his cancer on a day to day basis. He has, however, told me he is very scared. I need my strength to support him as well as coping myself. Life is so so hard at times. It's great to meet so many nice people on this site who are also going through some terrible times. We are here for each other and thank God we are. Take care and look after yourself xx

    Hi Arya, I know exactly how you feel as well. Ive been to the ER literally 15 times in the last year, seen my pcp a number of times and even been to the cardiologist. All have said nothing is wrong with my heart, so you would think that would ease my mind right? Nope. I went to a Psychiatrist last week and she said I had obsessive thoughts and put me on some meds and wants me to do cbt. Im hoping it will help and that "this to shall pass". Good luck to you, I hope you will be able to find some peace and solace through this journey. smile
