Posted , 5 users are following.

I feel at a complete loss. I've had anxiety longterm now. Mostly I've been able to control it myself but these past few months have been a downhill spiral. I get anxiett and panic attacks almost everyday. TTonight is a really bad one I can't even convince myself that that's what iit is anymore. I feel weak, my chest has a weird pressure but almost feels kinda vibrating. I'm so scared i need sleep as haven't slept well since last Friday but I'm genuinely scared im not going to wake up i really feel like I'm going to die. It's the weirdest I've felt for a long time. Please help xx sad

    Anxiety will not kill you its just an anxiety thought.

    Try to sleep telling yourself this feeling will disappear when you get up in the morning.

    And remind yourself that you are safe and tell yourself you are relaxed. Take some deep breaths

    You WIll be ok.

    God bless

      Thank you Tanya, I will try.

      Just sometimes need a reassuring sensible voice to put you back on track as once the anxiety takes hold it's hard to try and tell yourself different.

      Thank you

      Thank you for your message. It's so tough. The chest pain is worrying as it's so different to normal. It's scary, I try and do things to keep me awake but then I just feel worse and I go round in circles. I try to tell myself I've got through this before and I will again but when it's in the middle of an attack it's so much harder.

      Hope you also feel better soon

    Are you on any medication?? It's really helping me. I totally get the chest pain thing!! It's so scary!!!

    Also try to go talk to someone , it really helped me. Try not to be so aware of your body as the more you are the more anxious you get! I know it's hard but hang in the there!! It will get better hugs😀😀
