Today I’m overwhelmed from dealing with anxiety and panic attacks everyday. I’m not sure how i feel just blah. It’s not like me I don’t want to do anything but lay in bed. I have a 2 year old so not happening. But I’m thinking that’s good. I’m constantly obsessed with the physical symptoms I feel, trying to figure out what’s causing them or is it all in my mind.. I wake up thinking about them and spend all day dwelling. I’ve had panic attacks for almost 2 weeks straight now and I’m tired. I know I want to live just not like this... anyone else for blah days?

I know exactly how you're feeling with anxiety and panic attacks. I go through so often and it's draining. I'm always tired and achy all over. The worst thing is trying to figure out why and how to explain it to people that don't have these disorders. I'm sorry to hear that you are going through this. Just know you definitely not alone.

Thank you! It feels so lonely and I’m so afraid I’m going crazy or depressed and I won’t be able to get out of this hole

There's times I feel like I'm getting worse rather than better and my mind goes crazy as well to the point I get bad headaches. Having these disorders does make us feel lonely most of the time but then there's support groups like this where we can vent and be ourselves without judgement. I can't offer professional advice but I can be a listening ear that understands how it feels.

Aah I totally understand that feeling! I’ve been going through that for a few weeks now too x

What has helped me is forcing myself to take care of basics .. shower and food x

I think that’s key! I force myself to eat and leave the house bc I know if I don’t it will get worse!!

My heart goes out to you! I have dealt with anxiety for several years, though I am much better at managing my symptoms now than I was at first. It's easy to fall into the cycle of anxiety and depression when you are focusing only on the symptoms. I spent a lot of time obsessing over whether or not I was actually sick or if I was experiencing anxiety. At one point, I was journaling my thoughts and feelings daily. Putting them on paper really helped me to evaluate the reality of what was happening. I learned to be much more discerning about my symptoms. Also, you might benefit from contacting a counselor to talk through these issues. Here is a number to call to get started: 855-382-5433. I'm praying that you will find some relief and bring the joy back into your life!
