      I have recently gave in and am taking a very low dose of amytryptaline which has helped a bit. I hate taking medication so wouldnt take anything else. I think it can make things worse in the long run. Are you on anything? Xx

    Hi there! I'm having one of those days myself. I hate it when I feel bad because it just causes me to become so anxious. I worry about every single symptom I feel. I know it's just anxiety but it is so hard to make myself think differently! Good luck and I hope you are feeling better.
