Feel hopeless


I am new to the group and have bad anxiety and panic disorder. I had a double bypass four years ago and have bad health anxiety. I worry constantly about everything, am always nervous and anxious...cannot find peace of mind I am on xanax and sertraline which help some but do not solve the problem. I need some advice and encouragement on how to handle these feelings and be able to enjoy life again.

Hello again. Did you have an opportunity to read all the posts and replies to Trees I suggested? There is literally 10 or more months of very good support and replies there.

Do you have friends or family nearby? Do u have a hobby that you would like to get back into? I would start by doing some small things to make u happy each day. A walk, nature, family, etc. then remind yourself that your are healthy and strong. There are many people suffering out there so be gracious and even try to lend a hand to others in their time of need. I’ve found it makes me feel better because I’m able to concentrate on others and stop ruminating in my own head. I wish you the best. You will be just fine. One day soon you will wake up and say, enough!!! I’m ready for peace.



Thank you for your reply. I appreciate them all!
