I have never done anything like this before, I have never really been one who talks about their struggles with anyone but my family. But I wanted to try it now just to get it out and see if anyone has similar stories or help. It all started around November 2017 my eyes started to feel like there was pressure above them and always made me think like I would pass out or fall asleep. This made driving hard and it always stressed me at especially since I work till 10:30 usually so I drive home in the dark so it didn’t help. I think all the built up stress finally made me panic the one day going to school and I went home and didn’t go to class. Slowly I started going to my girlfriends less and then I started having panic attacks while being in the passenger side of the car sometimes. I had a panic attack at work because I felt dizzy and lightheaded feeling like I would pass out, I had my mom drive me to the hospital and left work that day. I found out I had a sinus infection but I started to not want to go to work or go out and see my girlfriend. The last week I worked about 1 month ago I stopped working that day I had a big fight with my girlfriend because of my anxiety, and I decided to start taking medicine for my anxiety. Over the past month it has been so hard for me going through an antidepressant and I haven’t gone out as much as I used to and mostly stayed in my room. But now my girlfriend is getting upset and sad because she has problems too and it is affecting her. I have been feeling much better than I did weeks ago but I am still not 100% but I am just tired of dealing with this anxiety.
I have changed my whole life going to therapy now for the anxiety and now I have been eating mostly better and exercising probably about 50 or so minutes a day. I am just doing what I can to help myself feel better and I have completely changed my life style. Thanks for listen to my story and I hope others can relate to it.
