Posted , 5 users are following.

Has anyone here been seperated from a loved one. I can't stop fretting and having anxiety and panic attacks. I just left a psych ward and I am going downhill fast once I left the positive amosphere. I have few friends so I am looking for an active community and some advice on some self help recourses. I am allowed no contact with wife for now. thank you for any help

    In so sorry. It's not my place to ask what happened.

    You need to seek some consoling and maybe some meds for a short time. Maybe a group where people meet and talk. It's a lonely feeling and you feel abandoned. Do you believe in God. Seek prayer and church. God brings you people when you least expect. I'm hear just to listen if you need.

    Hi Shane 

    i am sorry you are going through a rough time, I have been going through a lot of anxiety myself. I find it comforting to come here for support, it is hard when you are going through depression and anxiety, most people do not understand unless they have been through it. I myself do pray and go to church and have been reading the bible too to find peace. My anxiety is better than it was but I still have a long way to go. Feel free to respond I am here to listen and help if I can.

    Maybe moving to a new area thats in your age range would help.a new enviornment. You dont mention your age. If its 55 and over is their like a retirement area available. Sometimes removing yourself completely from the environment, or town is helpful.

    Thanks every one , Im 40 and due to depression I dont have any friends, I have isolated myself for so many years, I have been working from home for the last 14 years. I am not religious. I ve ot medications that I take now but they dont seem to be enough, I have troubles sitting in one place for 2 minutes and begin to pace so much that my legs hurt at night. I miss my wife and kids and my normal life. I have always had panic / anxiety attacks and my wife has soothed me for years and now with out her i can find little peace

      Hi Shane,

      I am going through the same thing. I have been a mess for over 2 months now. My ex is an alcoholic and it has been a rough 4 years actually. I thought I was coping bc we have separated 3 times in the last 4 years and ive never felt like this. He gets depressed drinking alot gets withdrawn and pushes me away when I try to be there and then he begs me to come back promising it will never happen again saying he will get help so I go back and things are good for awhile then he does the same thing again. I had a breakdown this time I guess I couldn't cope anymore and just completely fell apart. I haven't been able to work I've been having panic attacks which I never had before and thought something serious was wrong with me and I was going to die. I have anxiety everyday and physical symptoms burning tingling, can't eat, nausea, numbness, lightheaded feel like I can't breathe and have to keep taking deep breaths etc. The physical symptoms have set me over the top and made everything worse. I google and sedan myself jnto a panic attack convinced I have a serious disease which has made everthing worse and I can't seem to come out of it. This is the first time I have been this bad, I have now withdrawn and disconnected and for the first time have not even wanted to talk to him, blocked him from contacting me bc i feel that bad although i still love him. i don't care to talk to friends or go out anywhere I haven't left the house in 2 months except to go to the dr. It's really hard and ni know what your going through its the worst feeling in the world sad
