Struggling today, just need some reassurance.

Posted , 4 users are following.

I had some wine last night , I have had a glass of wine before whilst taking my Mirtazepine I just make sure I don't take it straight after but i woke up this morning I had convinced myself I'm going to have a heart attack , I've sat in the sofa all day my insides feel like there shaking , I keep trying to take deep breaths but I can't and I'm just waiting for the pain in my heart to start , I am so really fed up of all this , I had been getting better but now another set back , I just can't tell myself it's my anxiety that's making me feel like this I'm sure it's my heart .

Soooooo fed up and sad 😭

    I'm on mirtazapine too. And i have setbacks also. Anxiety returns - not as bad or for as long as before but its there. I want it gone and to be the person i was before. Its going to take time and we will get there. Ps i am struggling today too. We have people out there who know what we are going through and will listen and support each other. I'm here if you want an ear to listen. X

      Same to you Natalie. It helps to know there are people who will just listen to what you are worried about no matter how small it may seem because to us its big and real and that is the problem. It is hard sometimes making sense of it and trying to fit in(my issue). So i come on here and find some solace that someone is listening. Xxx

    Heart conditions do not start up on demand, so it sounds like Anxiety. A glass of wine will not hurt you, I am sitting here looking at the clock awaiting my couple of cans of pear perry, as I do every Friday night.

    If you are feeling ill talk to your GP, I have never heard of been ill on demand.

    Explain your anxiety and ask for some CBT, and coping exercises.

    Good luck, keep a hold
