    Hi Gemma smile

    I know how you feel. Firstly, I just want to ask about your doctor? Do they support you? What have they said about the black outs?

    When you have anxiety, you can feel hopeless and worthless. You are not alone. Everyone on this forum understands you and are here to help you smile You can DM me whenever you want to. I also can't be left alone. 

    Stay strong. xo

      Hi there

      I so feel for you,;I don't black out exactly but I do lose my head so to speak and frighten myself with bad thoughts. I convince myself I constantly have a terminal illness, I'm always googling about it. If one of my friends or family are ill I think they have cancer, because there is always some symptom to link to it. I suffer with panic attacks and shoot up in my sleep trying to catch my breath. Nearly every day of my life is a living hell. Nobody knows the thoughts that go round in my mind, but it's not like a pyshical illness, if people can't see it they think nothings wrong. I also don't like to be left on my own so I really know how you feel. I currently take medication but been on it for many years so think my body has grown immune to it. I don't feel like it works anymore. Your doctor should really be helping you, if he isn't then you must change surgery's or . Isn't there a different doctor you can see at the same surgery?please don't give up were all in the same boat.. You have the right to medical help. If no one is helping you then complain. But don't give up. I send you lots of love and a big hug. Let's us know how you get on xxxx

    Hi i am sorry you are going through this. I myself have suffered from anxieties and panic attacks where my heart is racing and i feel like i am dying 

    Its scary having them come out of the blue and i understand how you feel about not wanting to be a lone because i am the same way when i am anxious or have a panic attack 

    Are you on any meds. Why do the hospitals keep cancelling your appointments 

    Have you ever thought about switching to another doctor that can help you 

    Do you feel that its bad to where you need to be in the hospital 

    Elizabeth 

    Try to hang in there and do not worry

    Whilst it does feel acute now, there are a lot of people who have had & do have this but - there is medical evidence to show that counselling does help. Mostly CBT. If you can then go privately - find a reputable therapist or ask your GP to Reccomended one. Therapy is amazing - mind you prior to going private & sting myself for the priviledge I never found as much relief from any NHS therapists. Good luck. Remember you haven't always been like this & you won't always. Maybe anti-depressants + therapy would be best.
