Very Scared! :(

Posted , 4 users are following.

Hello!

I've suffered from anxiety attacks for a couple of years now but have never wanted to go to the doctors or do anything about it for obvious reasons of being dismissed.

It's getting to a point now where I'm just completely scared and panicking about every little thing. There's constantly thoughts whizzing around my head making me unable to concentrate on anything. Anytime I try to leave the house I get intense feelings of fear and have difficulty breathing. This is leaving me very sad, unable to live my life. I have finally booked a doctors appointment but I'm very scared of what to do and say, help? sad

    I haven't been diagnosed the anxiety but I know that's what I have cause all the symptoms are there. I have dizziness everyday, fast heartbeat, sickness as well as other symptoms and this has been going on for over a year now. When you go to doctor just tell them exactly how you are feeling and all the symptoms you have. I hop you get some relief soon cause it is very frustrating to deal with.

      :sigh:

      Please think before you post, she's come here cause she's clearly scared of what will happen. Anxiety is the fear of the Unknown, so you tell her more horrible symptoms of what 'could' happen and potentially how long it could be without relief. It's not what she asked for.

      As for Chelsea, anxiety is entirely manageable once you understand it, once you understand why yours is triggering, just read your original post out to your doctor cause you said exactly how you feel and if i have one piece of advice for you it would be - stop reading up about anxiety on websites like this. Get off webMD get off doctor Google get off this site. Cause you'll read things that are completely nothing to do with your anxiety problem and you'll start imagining 'what if mines like that.' Just listen to your GP. They know what they're doing.

      Good luck Chelsea.

      I was trying to relate to her and how she feels cause I feel the same way and whether I say it or not she will read everything online and will get scared but will also get some relief cause a lot of people deal with this anxiety everyday. I was saying what my symptoms was so maybe she does or doesn't have the same symptoms as me so we can help each other.

      This whole forum lacks a nurturing touch. Everyone just bounces back and forth of each other getting more and more wound up. Yes symptoms are horrible. Yes people have them. I have them. but when new people come here you need to stop shovelling fear into their faces. Sorry to pick on you specifically but that goes to everyone. The sooner everyone realises anxiety is a fear of something the sooner everyone will smart up and stop exacerbating their fears.

      I'm sorry I didn't mean anything by what I said. I was just commenting and will be more careful with my words. Thanks. How long have you suffered with anxiety ?
