Sometimes I feel like I'm going to die or go insane

Posted , 4 users are following.

I'm 35yrs old

I sometime get a feeling like I'm going to die or I'm going to pass out with a brain tumor or heart attack OR cancer. I hate how I feel!!!

I can't really go out and have a girls night or shopping because of this fear I have. At time to control the problem I ball up and hug a pillow and rock back an forth. I know sounds crazy..

I'm going to talk to my doctor October 24 about these issues. I just don't want to get hooked on meds..

This is ruining my life!!! 😠

    Hi Christy,

    Are you on any meds already, since you've mentioned becoming hooked on them?

    I know you feel terrible. CBT is the best thing for Anxiety Disorder.

    Hi Christy,

    You're not alone in how feel. Most days I feel the same way. I hug my pillow and sleep a lot. It's honestly your anxiety and probably some depression. You won't get hooked on the meds but they do help and most people are able to stop taking them after a while. Talking to a therapist may help as well.

    Hope this helps some. You're in the right place. There are so many people in the same exact situation you are in and they are coping in the same way.

    You need to think things thru love. If you needs meds then so be it it surely seems to be better then the existence you have..right? You can wean off of medicine. People do it all the time. That fear is from the anxiety disorder itself. You need to have your life back so you can enjoy it. And of course be in therapy and learn self calming skills and tools. But please if you cant funtion dont rule out medicine, that makes zero sense if it could save you.

      Thank you lisa..

      I'm going Oct 24. Talk about something temporary meds.. My sister said she take effxor and she had no problems with it but I know coming off effxor you get zaps such as I did coming off Paxil and klopins...

      I came off those cold turkey and that was the worse few weeks I've ever had...

      I just want something to level me out to get myself balanced..

      I'm really glad I found this forum.

      I just thought me and my sister had it bad..
