Sudden rapid heart beating , nausea , feeling like i'm going to die - ambulance- hospital - right lung pleurezia . They've checked me for lupus.. nothing . Made a set of analisis..nothing. Constant fear of having something bad , some sort of heart disease , lung disease.etc . I'm going to terapy .. don't feel like it's working anymore.

    Hello Cristina. So sorry to hear you've been suffering with all this. Your story is like many, including mine. And it sounds like you've actually made a huge step already, in the sense that you're no longer actively afraid of something bad happening. Now you just have all these physical symptoms that linger -- they're not as scary to you now, but they're still upsetting and uncomfortable, right? Well, some days will be good, others bad, like you said. But the more you learn about your AD the more you'll be able to cope with these symptoms. Will they ever pass completely? Maybe, but probably not. But that's okay! Because now you know you can handle it. You've been handling it for months, and you'll just keep getting stronger and wiser. These feelings will eventually become your New Normal, and you won't even think about them. Keep going with the therapy, make sure you're eating right and exercising, and above all make sure you pamper yourself a lot. Self care is super important for AD sufferers. So do stuff that makes you feel safe and happy. I promise you that over time this will weigh less heavily on your mind. Just be patient with yourself. smile 

    Much love & feel better soon

    The one thing i have learned about an anxiety disorder is do not predict the future! This is the crux. What if... that needs to be tamed. In an anxious state of mind any "predictions" are going to be poor ones. Its a negative way of thinking. And you will be prophetzing it to come true. In cancer patients they use visualizations to heal dont use it in reverse. Bottom line o not think about tomorrow.
