Scared of feeling like this forever

Posted , 7 users are following.

I am recently battling the combination of depression and anxiety and find is a struggle everyday, especially at nights and in the morning. This has caused me to fear going to my room as it's a constant reminder of having anxiety and panic attacks, this fules my irrational and intrusive thoughts thus increasing my anxiety. It's a constent cycle that I can't break from! I just wondered if anyone had felt the same and if anyone had any advice for me???

    The only advice I could give Alice is to see your doctor about treating your underlying anxiety. These kind of issues seldom leave on their own, you may find some therapy helpful

      I think it depends on the situation if therapy is required. There r many issues that fall into a mind that is in fear. 

      I hope therapy is recommended to help with diagnosis & meds. Short term may work we don't have enough information to make a accurate recommendation..

      True, therapy or meds can work, neither is better or worse, just all depends on what suits the individual. The benefit of therapy is that there are no side effects

      It is difficult to judge the strength of any individual. Words of feeling in a few sentences is not always enough..

      facing the fear is the most important way to find coping tools right for the individual.. This is my experience.

      As u say, theres too many factors. Facing fear for one person may be fine, for another it could make someone much more distressed. At least in therapy you get the chance to have guidance and protection while you tryr

    As suggested please do visit your GP. Tell him or her everything you have said here if necessary write everything down.  There is help out there you are not alone.  If you have a family member or good friend who could go with you that would be good if that would help you or go alone if your prefer.  Take care and let us all know how you get on.

    Thankyou all for our helpful feedback. And to let you all know I have been to the doctors, I finally admitted to myself that I needed help as I felt I was going crazy! I've to make an appointment at the hospital to start CBT sessions when I feel I'm ready! Sometimes I feel I really need it, but talk myself out of it as I begin I feel better again (not for long mind you, it only lasts 15-30 mins max. I feel it's getting worse with more things around me, I was watching a concert on tv (Calvin Harris at TITP FYI) and I started to feel panicked, like I was scared something bad was gonna happen even though I wasn't even their??? The mass amount of people made me so anxious, is this normal or is my anxiety getting worse

    Hi Alice, I know exactly what you're going through as I suffered with almost exactly the same thing but I had to turn to medication to help me as my life was hell. 

    I hope you get yourself sorted soon.

      Danielle,

      i am sorry to hear UR life was so stressfully. It can cause so many health issues.

      meds help some while others need long term help.

      i hope UR life is better & u will never have to go back to that place again.

      CHEERS HOPE
