What are some feeling you all expirence after the initial anxiety attack is over?

Posted , 4 users are following.

Hi All, Im new here but would love to hear about how anxity actually makes you feel. For me its the weird feeling of loosing control in a public place, constantly questioning my sanity, my feelings and if they are real. Anyone else out there with the same feelings? I also have this nagging feeling that im slowly going crazy and feeling of haziness, dream like state. Some days Im completely fine and other days its constant. It totally disrups your life.

Im a 35 year old woman with a beautiful family. I cant exactly remember a time when anxiety wasnt a part of my life, even as a younger kid I would have so much anxity in my belly right before an exam i felt like I would puke. Being young I just thought eveyone felt the same way until about 10 years ago. I think it got a lot worse when my mom got diagnosed with thyroid cancer. I then got a hightened fear of her dying. Now it's me. I have a beautiful little girl that im terrified that I will die and eave her all alone. (But she wont be alone because she has her daddy and all of of family to look out to her) But still the very thought terrifies me that I wont be around for her when she needs me.

Im terrified of death and my health anxiety is through the roof.

Sorry for the long post I was just wondering if anyone else feels the same as me or do i commit myself. Are these feeling really anxiety related or do I have some other disease or brian tumor/

Thanks in advance for anyone that replies.

      Most times I can relax myself and talk my way outta the dreaded feelings but other days I just feel that its a loosing battle and Im never going to get better. ya know?

      My symptoms include (not in any order)

      yawning to try and catch my breath

      belly upset

      obsessive thinking (what ifs)

      dizzy, sometimes (although this symptom brings on my anxiety and panic) so not sure if this is a symptom or a cause

      feeling of unreal, like hazziness

      trouble falling asleep

      worrying about my heart ( its beating too slow or too fast)

      inner ear tremors

      shakey

      weak, feeling like im going to faint (SCARY)

      All of these (wow thats a list hey) lol I wanna go to the doctor and I have a terrific gp who would completely understand but Im afraid its all anxiety and would end up imbarresing myself. I have thought of CBT but im afraid they will commit me to a hospital. Thoughts???
