I just want to cry

Posted , 5 users are following.

I really feel like I'm getting better then..boom..there is anxiety, just reminding me that it's here and controls me now!

I'm sooooo fed up, I don't want to feel like every ache and pain is signalling the end of my life or brain surgery!!!!

I just want to cry.

This mornings trigger really bad pain in my neck on the right side, logically it's just meaning I've slept funny but my anxiety is panic striken because I think its something really serious and I'm going to die or have to have surgery to remove a tumour in my brain.

I so tired, fed up, want to cry, confused....I want my life back!!!!!

      Thank you for replying....I'm in cbt and it has helped but I'm just so scared right now....I've got lightheaded and just so worried, what if it s a stroke??!

      I've got so much to do today I can't have a panic attack now, and I can't control it today for some reason!

      I have been where you are huni, watched my mother have a stroke and convinced myself i was next! Every little twitch and tingling i thought oh well this is it, herre it comes and i stopped living! My therapist was wonderful and helped me to see i have been having thesesymptoms for years and have never had a stroke and she taught me about all the things the body does when it percieves a threat and it has really helped! I still worry occassionally but i have the knowledge of what is happening and can avert a panic attack... Good luck, deep breathing and come back and let us know how you got on later xx

    I know exactly how you feel, I suffer from bad Health Anxiety....so the fact I have IBS, my symptoms are all in my stomach...burning, cramping, Nausea and just general unwell feeling, I have had many tests in the past 3 months...the doctor is 100% sure nothing is wrong with me, my tests confirm nothing is wrong with me....so I wake up feeling stressed, I have the physical symptoms and the stress of those makes them worse...a vicious cycle that I am trying to break free from..

    All I can say, is to stay strong, keep reminding yourself that you physcial symptoms are not dangerous and you are in control....find that balance again in your life....and you will improve....just as I know I will

    We have to remain committed to recovery and believe we are healthy and strong....and we will recover

    I know exactly how you feel, I have good and bad days with my health anxiety, at 1st I also thought I was getting better, then boom a new symptom that brings me back to the drawing board, it's a vicious cycle... my advice to you is try walking while doing very slow deep breaths to calm yourself and then set an appointment with your GP and get your head check to rule out any serious problems.
