Hello all. Been dealing with anxiety and ocd my whole life. It’s hit an all time low and I can’t figure out why. I feel like work is fine, my family is great, and on the surface everything seems cheerful. With all the good happening I’m frustrated my mental state won’t just take a chill pill.
So.. I’m constantly anxious about what seems like nothing and I’m scared it will never end. Lately I have had ocd thoughts about Suicide and death. I know these things are bad and I would never act on these thoughts. I just feel an overwhelming sense of uneasiness and the more the loop plays in my head the more I freak out. I’m worried someday I’ll snap and lose control. My panic attacks have also increased and happen randomly. Example, Went on a run yesterday and my legs itched/ burned from the cold and—- boom, panic attack.
Does anyone here worry about worrying? I’m very frightened of being institutionalized and going crazy because I know what I’m thinking isn’t exactly normal. I’m getting married in a month and we just moved into a new house. Can this overwhelming sense of unease be attributed to these changes subconsciously.
My doctor just switched me to 20 mg of Prozac and before this medication I never felt this bad. I was taking citalopram but it seemed to wear off towards the end of the day.
Welp, thats how I’m feeling today. Wish I could just be back to my old cheerful self. Hope everyone is doing ok today. Praying for some mental stability.
