had such a good day yesterday. i started feeling better and didn't have much anxiety. but i wake up today feeling horrible again. heart pounding, palms sweaty and anxious and worried. trying desperately to understand what goes on with me mentally and how to fix this issue. i'm so tired of the day to day never knowing how i'm going to feel and what i'm going to go through mentally and physically. suffering from this is so draining and i just want to fix myself.

I totally hear you. It is such a pain to not know if you are going to have a good day or bad day. It's a crap shoot hour to hour. You can't schedule things because you are not sure if you can handle them. I feel the same way at times. The good news is that there are good days sprinkled in there too. Hang onto the memory of those and hope for one later today or tomorrow. I would fix you (and me) right now if I could, but know that you are not the only one feeling that way.

It is, I agree, but realize that there are better days ahead. God doesn't give us more than we can handle.

What symptoms do you have?

just constant anxiety. feeling of fear all the time. feeling like i'm going to pass out or faint. heart races, feel dizzy, lightheaded, palms get sweaty...it's uncontrollable. i try so hard to relax myself and give myself a pep talk and tell myself it's mental but it doesn't work. horrible feeling when you have absolutely no control over yourself

Yes same here! Are u considering neds

honestly, i would rather not take meds. i am not against it but i would like to try to overcome this without meds first. i've heard meds can make things worse and that's what scares me.

I get the exact same way. Some days my heart seems to be pounding all day long and I just can’t calm down. Once it starts up it’s just a vicious cycle of anxiety about anxiety. It’s awful and makes it impossible to enjoy anything. Some days are better than others, and this goes for the depression too. I honestly have NO idea most of the time why it is that I’m miserable one day or why I’m alright another day. It seems entirely random.
