Hi Nat how are you? Better I hope. I am struggling with my physical health issues at the moment - mild copd, under active thyroid, chronic back pain, as well as my depression. I am feeling more and more isolated as I often can't go out with friends much as I can't manage the walking :(

I did tell 2 of them this weekend after our Sunday lunch this is the reason why I haven't been in touch and they were fine with it. Anything sitting down or in the car are ok though and they understood. Not good though.

I am also struggling massively with my housework and my place is getting worse by the day. I am trying to tackle this but not doing very well.

Sorry but you did ask :) Bev xx

Dont apologise bev so sorry you are feeling this way depression is a struggle alone and with your other illnesses it must be exhausting aswell as painful

So glad you have understandable friends its horrible when you feel isolated .

Take care hope you feel better soon

It is exhausting Nat! To make it worse another friend has dropped me coz I kept being a few minutes late at meeting her because I find it hard to get motivated and am slower than I realise. This is a friend who although is only 3 years younger is very fit and active and doesn't seem to understand illness. She is also in her final stages of training to be a counsellor too.... I pity her poor patients. x

Hi @lilprince800 my apologies for the late reply yes anxiety plays havoc with our everyday breathing it seems to go faster or you need to take deep breaths to soothe the anxiety or it can just mess with your breathing all day every day but if you feel you can’t breathe then just get yourself looked at by a dr

I just left the hospital again today they don’t see nothing wrong seem like my whole body is tight can’t get a deep breath fatigue very low but can’t find nothing wrong keep telling me it’s acid reflux

It’s anxiety then your whole body is tight because your tensing up with anxiety I suffer the most with tension through anxiety then my whole body aches it’s mad what we go through during a attack

It’s best your getting it checked though just to rule out anything medical

Yeah I had blood work cat scans special lung tests EKG picture of my heart multiple times and they say everything normal but my body don’t feel normal

I got severe health anxiety from my depression and anxiety symptoms it sounds like you could have it slightly as soon as I worry about health I get it checked then I get reassured then next thing I’m focusing on something else health related and it would start all over again so maybe you could have a touch of it do you think it’s possible? I’m obviously not a medical doctor but I’m speaking from being a health anxiety sufferer myself
