Anxiety Support

Don't know what to do for the best!

Today has been strange. I took my little girl to the cinema, I've felt like I've been in a bubble all day. On the way there I felt like ringing my husband to come get us, I didn't want to be out, but I blocked it out. Couldn't let my little girl down. Sat through film and had a splitting headache. I also have a pain going down the back of my neck.

I stopped in health shop on way home and picked up some bach 'rescue remedy'. I am now too frightened to take that, how silly is that!?

I really am back to square 1, can't take meds and can't do anything to help myself. I feel like I just want to get out of my head!!!!!!

I also have one sleeping tablet left and I'm now frightened of what tomorrow night brings.

Hoping you've all had a better day xx

Thanks Erstchay. I know I'm being silly because it's nothing like meds. Just working myself up over nothing as usual.

Looloo, the rescue remedy will do nothing, there is nothing in it. It's just like water, it doesn't really taste of anything, it smells like brandy. I was using it whilst in labour with my son and nothing strange happened. I've been using rescue remedy for the last 15yrs or so. I especially used it when I was driving long distances as I could panic sometimes on the motorway.

Try to relax a bit your aching neck will get worse xxx

Thanks winter. The aching has eased off. Still have a pounding head. I've had some of the rescue remedy. Not really knowing if I'm expecting anything (bit silly). I'm looking for a miracle I think!

Hope your well xx

Hey! The lady in the shop I went to today mentioned natural tablets & she said they were exciting. Can't remember the name but they we're quite expensive at around £30 a tub. Not sure if I could afford yhat if I'm honest! Which ones do you take if you don't mind me asking?

Thanks for your message.

Hi looloo

Hope your are feeling better, rescue remedy wont hurt you, I have used it, however I don't find it does anything, but give it ago, it works for a lot of people, O the bubble, I have been getting that, and must say I get into a right state about it, as I can not deal with that symptom of anxiety , you did very well to continue as you did. well done.
