Losing control to anxiety/depression

Posted , 3 users are following.

I have been having a hard time since August of 2015. Being newly pregnant and celebrating my daughters first birthday, I found out my fiancé was seeing another woman. There after I found out I had pre cancerous cells on my cervix, I lost my unborn child, I was in a terrible car accident that left my fiancé in the hospital for a week. Ur relationship has never been the same. A month ago my 43 year old mother had a terrible stroke. Instantly I started having muscle tightness, headaches, joint pain, numbness, pounding heart, my hand and feet hurt, I can't stop my mind from thinking thes out what's happening to me. I feel like I'm dying or going to die of some terrible disease. I woke up a few days about and told myself I can't do it anymore. The constant aches and pains are controlling my mind/life. I just want to stay in bed and not deal with life. I can't figure out what is wrong with me. I'm in need of support.

    Ohhh lord,  Im so so sorry sweetheart for all you have been through. Yes, you certainly do need support.  Its no wonder you are going through anxiety/depression.  The most strongest person in the world would have a hard time trying to stay above everything & battle their way through a combat of unfortunate ordeals.  Everything you have stated, aches, pains & gernerally feeling unwell in yourself are the typical symptoms of anxiety.   Im sure you will find a huge amount of ideas with 'self help' suggestions on this site.   I encourage you to seek counseling jessica.  Not just to talk about all of your awful experiences, grief & trauma, but someone who can help guide you through a 'recovery' plan & excercise useful strategies also.  You may need a little help with medications, but thats entirely up to you.  A visit to your GP would not hurt jess. I will not overload you with to much.  You will one day & hopefully soon, feel strong & coping skills will help you cope through your days to weeks.   Much love to you jess xxx

      Thank you so much! I'm speaking with a therapist and seeing a doctor this week. It's crazy because I knew I was stressed and unhappy, but didn't realize how bad it could get. About 4 days before my mother had the stroke my eye started bothering me, my calf muscles were tense, and I had a bit of numbness. Went to the eye doctor and he said I was fine, then went to get X-rays on my foot but they didn't see anything (3 different doctors). After the stroke things got worse and my therapist stated that I've been dealing with it, but didn't know it. She also recommend medication.

    Omg Jess, I'm so sorry to hear that you've been through one of them traumatic experiences let alone all of them. Your a strong person already to deal with that many things all around the same time. Give yourself a pat on the back! 

    Ive been diagnosed with anxiety since last June (2015) and can sympathise with all your symptoms, I've had every single one! It's awful and I know the feeling of just locking yourself in your room and not wanting to to talk or doing anything. You feel your going crazy. Your not, don't panic, there's tons of people experiencing the same things due to anxiety. The key is the keep telling yourself it is only anxiety, try xcersizing and a healthy meal plan,. I found talking to someone close about it really helps too. 

    I wish you you the best of luck Jess it's difficult, but you can do it. Use this site to connect with people going through the same thing, it's a big help. Try stay positive and remember anxiety can't kill you.

      Thank you. It's very hard, but I'm trying to get through it. It's like my mind is telling me that it's not anxiety and depression, you are dying. I will get on medication and continue to work on myself.
