Im breaking down

Posted , 4 users are following.

I can't deal with health anxiety at all, Expecially when  I have symptoms of things on my body I just can't switch my attention away, I have had social anxiety before and could divert my attencion from the situation or avoid it but with health i just cannot, I've worked hard via thepray and gym do keep the blues away but it's all falling apart, right now I'm so scared of everything, socially I have new courses to learn more starting soon I'm scared my health I'm so scared and I'm scared I slump into depression as my anti depressants made me go higher last time and I was diagnosed with bipolar type 2, I can't go down this road again it's a long awful one and I'm really just venting/reaching out ive no idea what to do, again apologies if this is a bit scattered.

    I'm sorry that you feel this way. I can really understand how you're feeling as I'm on the same difficult path of health anxiety. Everyday I have a symptom that freaks me out,makes me want to give up on everything! It's really hard feeling like I'm gonna die everyday and being scared of waking up to face another day. I get scared of literally everything too. Point is I really can get what you're going through. All you have to do is be patient, maybe try some breathing techniques and talk to someone you love and loves you (my mum really helps me with that). Best of luck! I really hope all of us get through this!

    Make an appointment with your GP if you feel you are unable to function properly due to your Anxiety and Bi-Polar condition, are you still taking medications ?.
