I'm exhausted mentally physically.

I feel fatigue Dizzy headaches pains&aches all over everyday !

no stop 24/7 symtoms and half the days sat worrying but u really feel I'm losing my mind too many symtoms to be anything amd doctors saying it's this and that but I'm having no relief like tommorow is my last day taking amoxicillon although it has not helped at all I still have all the symtoms I went to doctors With ....

I feel I'm like properly mental like how will I know if it is something bad if I feel ill all the time anyways my memory seems to be fading and I will be in mid conversation and everything goes blank I muddle my words I don't find anything exciting or look forward too because I either worry about it or worry about what symtoms I will have that day ect 😧 I just find myself and life boring at the minute like im on repeat and pause constantly x

    Same here. Feel like sh*t almost 24. 7. Been such a rough ride for the last 7 months. I am on lyrica mirtazipan and now since yesterday prozac !! I do go out and try and face everything. Had to stop work due to my osteoarthritis in neck and hip. Gutted cause it was good to get back and find some kind of ballance in my life. I feel excausted and have terrible muscle stiffness and weird sensations all over my body. My head feels full and weird. Thoughts racing uncontrollably. I am working on finding help and have found a great psychiatrist and also have found an osteotharapist who is a great help. But still cant find a way back to feeling my old self.feeling numb and find it hard to enjoy even the simplest things. It gets so damn hard. Hope the prozac will give me at least a lift. hope you can find the strenght to find these demons. Dont give in thats what i am doing . I owe it to myself and all the people around me !!

    All the best

      Hi Steph,

      I think you are right to stay off anti-depressents. It sounds like you are experiencing some depersonalisation. Its really scary and is the result of a large amount of stress and anxiety. Its quite common for people with anxiety to believe they are loosing their minds, but trust me its just anxiety tricking you- you absoluetly will not loose your mind. Noone who thinks there going to loose their mind will ever loose it! People who loose there minds have no idea about it! Therefore you know if you are worried about loosing your mind that your mind is safe! Its just anxiety, and cant hurt you!

      I strongly suggest you find a councelling psychologist to help you overcome your anxiety, they will help you so much more than any medication ever could.

      In the mean time you should read up on anxiety etc.

      A good book to start with is 'Mind over Mood'.

      Also, read Susan Jeffers - 'Feal the fear and do it anyway'

      and start reading 'Healing your aloneness- margaret paul'.

      You just need to build up knowledge of how your mind works in order to overcome this. If your motivated you will do it! I know how sh*t it is at the moment, but with hard work it can be overcome!  

      And remember, the strongest most well rounded people in the world have been through hard times! this will make you into such a strong and wise person. A few years ago I was in a terrible place, was sure I had lost my mind- but thankfully I found a good psychologist and read a lot of books to help understand my mind. You can do the same!!!! 

      Lifes a challenge! Embrace it and Enjoy it!! smile

      In that case it might be worth taking a deeper more psychodynamic approach- I would read Healing your Aloness. It will take you to your next stage of recovery, it really is a life changing book- on a beautiful and brilliant technique called inner bonding! Give it a go! It will directly heal the part of you that feels vulnerable.

      Hi Steph,

      Just one more piece of advise.

      Seriously look into learning Trancendental meditation. Its a really easy technique to learn and really powerful at combatting anxiety. It costs £290 to learn but it's really really worth it. I wish somebody had told me about it earlier on in my recovery, because I truly believe it's one of the most effective way to combat anxiety. Look up the David Lynch foundation and type into youtube 'celebraties and Trancendental meditation' just to see some faces you may trust talking about it!!! Again it really is a very profound and life changing technique and if you have the courage to learn it it will improve your life considerably. Good luck and if you need any more advise please let me know x
