Anxiety

How do you know if it’s all in your head and there’s really nothing going on? My friends and family calm me down telling me I’m ok but I’m still really scared and I don’t know how to come back to my senses. I calm down but eventually I go back at it and rmtorture myself with what ifs. I was taking Sudafed 30mg and I believe that triggered my anxiety to the max. Pls help

Hi Whyus,

I'm not sure to tell the difference between its all in your head & nothing really going on. I go through the same thing sometimes. I try to vent to my friends or family and they usually tell me i'm overreacting, its just all in my head, or that I do it to myself. If you think the meds are making it worse... talk to your doctor, maybe they can figure something out to change it or find something that works for you.

I’ve been off for four days so hopefully it gets out of my system soon because I feel like I’m losing it. Thank you for your comment

I'm the exact same way when it comes to the worry. (And it's usually one small thing that I'll fixate on for no reason.) When I'm with others I'm perfectly fine - don't know if it's simply because if others are around I feel safer, or at least will have help if something does go wrong..........or if it's simply that being along makes it easier to hear every settling rattle of the house or every noise the cat makes which starts me up all over again.

This sucks I wish it would all go away. I feel so lonely even tho I have a great support team. It’s as if I stuck in a different world by myself. I went to a vitamin shop last night to buy Sam-e because someone had suggested for anxiety but ended up buying something else the sales guy said was better. I’ll be trying it today and I’ll let ya know how it works for me. God willing it helps because this is awful wouldn’t wish this upon anyone😞🙏🏽💪🏽

Your first step is a check up including possibly blood tests, once you have the all clear you can then work on the anxiety, anxiety is fuelled by your own fears, you become stuck in the cycle, see your gp then you can begin working on your anxiety xxxx
