      Hi Samantha

      I'm doing the exact same as you right now...under my Xmas quilt because it feels like a warm hug. I am experiencing same things as you...something scary each day.trying not to let it paralyze or depress me.

      I tell my self " you just had check up...full work up of tests...all is well." Then I chalk it up to pwei and meno madness and try to get back to l8ving in the moment. Hugs!! We will be good again...soon.

    Hi Samantha I'm in year 5 of feeling like my body and mind has been taken over by aliens. I just want me back. every symptom had me heading into panic and I've developed bad health anxiety. your not alone. I get chest pain breathless body aches and I constantly think it's my heart even though tests have come back fine. stay positive and although it's hard try not to worry as this makes symptoms worse xx

      Hi Vicky,

      Hope you don’t mind me joining your conversation.  I’m the same as you ! I’ve actually forgotten what normal feels like ? I just wondered amongst your many symptoms have you had any issues down below ? I’m currently in full anxiety mode over strange sensations sometimes when I bend over or sit down . . .not sure if it might be dryness ?? Love Deb xxxx

I've seen on other posts that there is cream you can get if it's dryness. in glad in not the only one that feels like i just want normal again like you I've forgotten what it feels like i struggle to even look forward to anything xx

      Hi Vicky,

      Thank you for replying.  I'm not having regular periods, I went 10 months then just before Xmas had a light bleed for 2 days.  Since the nothing ? Maybe that's why dryness has started, who knows ?  My mind keeps racing and then I think maybe it's not dryness and I've got something worse, like a prolapse ?  That's my big fear at the moment.  I did have an internal last June and was told I didn't, but that's my anxious mind.  Are you taking HRT ? I'm not.  Deb xxxx

      Hi Debbie, I have that mind racing too...don't sleep on edge, feel hot cold can't sit still maybe because of how I feel I live on my own..so many people say it w il end but the mins tells me different I feel like I'm going mad but still Sane all need is my bed then I can't sleep properly without thinking crap..I do remember how I felt in October last year so I hold on to those thoughts daily because I felt better that time so that was the old me then I'm so wishing I go back feeling like that..I keep beating myself up each day because it still not lifted yet my mouth is so dry  throat dry eyes dry skin drys eat because I have too, but I'm trying hard not to worry I do go out get on but don't mix and that bothers me..because I want to be me so much I'm hanging on to thread
