Hi O-Mai big hugs to you 💕this actually happened me yesterday an this past few days I feel as if my food is stuck as if I have indigestion oh I dunno it’s hard to explain. My brother is the same an I sometimes worry with my history am I heading that way as recently I’ve had severe mood swings an even lost my temper in a total raging outburst that was unusual for me hence now full of remorse an fallen out with a close neighbour which I do really regret. Just don’t know where I’m heading to be honest. 😌

The first time I experience panic attack I had the same symptoms as if food stuck into my guts I couldn't eat for over three days cause all I felt is obnoxious.. and when i had the panic attack while my heart was beating and I felt light headed i thought I was becoming schizophrenic .. all I was telling to my parents that I'm becoming like my brother but that wasn't the case .. all I have was fear of losing my mind .. two month now has gone and I have not experience any symptoms of schizophrenia .. my doctor diagnose me with anxiety .. but even so I'm still afread of losing my mind

I have obsessive thoughts and I can’t control them. I have always been this way. I take a meditation class, I do volunteer work and it’s not enough . I have always worried I would run out of money. I am on medication. I have gone to therepy but I decided it was the wrong person for me. People on here are nice and helpful to talk to. I know everyone is struggling with something. It’s nice to know I can come here and find someone to talk to, I would like help someone. I don’t have anyone to talk too
