Hello all my goodness what a rough week I have no idea where to start.Have had a bad cold and strep throat the last 2 weeks and the cough is awful my chest and body hurts.So I had to go out last week after having this cold and went into a store and full blown panic attack tunnel vision numb face sweating shaky pale face not knowing where I was.It took hours to come back round and ever since then I've been in a brain fog my head aches I don't feel at all normal.My heart is weak I have to wear dark glasses all the time as my vision is really weird hard to describe.I stay home with all 5 of my girls and I can't do nothing except hide in my bed and hope it goes away.Then today has been the worst ever I can't hardly focus when people speak I don't hear them went to the store and felt awful really panicky and couldn't wait to escape forgot everything I needed snapped at my girls for no reason.Its all getting too much I'm at tipping point I've had scans blood work X-rays but I feel awful.I can't eat cos when I do I get dizzy and weak and it sends me into a panic attack as I sit her now I'm dizzy can't swallow heart and chest hurts I swear I'm a goner this just can't be anxiety for real I need help!!!!!

    Yep,this is that huge monster called anxiety messing with you in every possible way. I get how you feel,it's really bad,maybe you should start seeing a therapist? plus,avoid meds as there are a lot of side effects and don't really fight the underlying cause of your anxiety. I really wish you best of luck. I'm on the same difficult road and  I understand you.

      Yeah having 5 kids to raise on your own totally adds to it. However,you can get your mother to help with you raising the kids? You should absorb power from your children! smile they're reason enough to make you get out of this! I promise! haha yeah 2016 sucked sooo much,it's when i had the breakdown and found out i have gad and health anxiety. Baaad 2016! Happy new year to you too! May our anxiety stays behind!
