Need Encouragement

Posted , 5 users are following.

I feel like i brought this upon myself and I'm not worthy enough to be normal and happy again this really sucks. I have a child and a hubby and I don't want to loose them. I pray hard everyday and im trusting. Sometimes it feels like there's no light at the end of the tunnel I don't want anything to be wrong with me (my worst fear) sometimes i feel as if i'm loosing it. I want more kids and I don't want to be like this forever ughh! Need some encouraging words anyone else experience this?

    First of all, big (((hugs))) sweetie. You've been very brave in sharing how you feel like this. It takes a lot of guts to do that. There is always light at the end of the tunnel you know. If you don't see it, you just need to walk down there and switch it on yourself. You can make your own light.

    You don't mention if you have been to see your doctor or not yet. If not, I would strongly advise you to do so. There is no shame in seeking help to cope, I promise.x

      I see a counselor every week, and I take 5mg of lexapro a day because I didn't like the setraline or the other meds i was on. I've been getting out the house more and getting active but there's still those unwanted thoughts and fears sad . I don't want to be like this forever it's scary

    Please be assured of this, you did not bring this problem upon yourself.

    How do I know this? Well scientific research has established that many mental health conditions have been brought about by unexpected, unusual neuron activity within the brain, and not by something that we have induced ourselves.

    In some instances anxiety can be brought about having too much to deal with at any one time, and in other situations it can be caused by underlying health problems.

    Whatever your situation, I would stress that it is very unlikely that you consciously influenced your problem.

    Having said this, there are various treastments available that can help you to cope, but to reach them you will need the assistance of your doctor.

    So take heart brave lady there is hope - a lot of it.

      Thanks for sharing your story hon. I truly needed to hear and read that this morning. I've been searching for answers and praying while trusting in God...and just seems like it's getting worse with no rest. I'm going some of the things you discussed now. I just ended a friend to talk to about this one that wouldn't judge and would listen with their heart. So many people say they're listening but they only hear what they want to hear.
