I’ve dealt with depression for many years. Anxiety is someone new to me. I’ve dealt with it for maybe 7 years. But the past 4 months have been a nightmare and it just keeps getting worse no matter what I do.
I can’t seem to calm myself down. Every med I’ve been on doesn’t seem to help. I’ve been on Effexor for a month and it’s not helping my anixety. I have Xanax but I hate taking it. My mind just won’t stop.
I am convinced there is something wrong with my heart. I’ve been the ER many times because of it. I get heart palpitations that scare the s**t out of me. Some are not so bad but others take the breath out of me. They leave me feeling like I’m going to faint. Lightheaded and dizzy. Nauseous.
I check my pulse constantly. And if I happen to check it and I feel my heart skip a beat because of a palpitation, I freak out.
I’m going to the doctor tomorrow and I’m going to ask her about seeing a cardiologist. It seems so stupid. I’ve had tests done at the er. But I feel like I need more tests. I’m just so scared my heart is just doing to stop.
I can’t enjoy anything anymore. Even when I’m out hanging with friends I’m so concentrated on how I feel. Every pain. Every heart beat. I need this to stop.
