I feel like giving up!

After a month of being on kolnopin and zoloft and also going through CBT therapy life has been getting a bit better when out of nowhere BAM!!!! I'm at work today and I get dizzy, feel like I'm going to pass out, and feel like I'm going to die. I don't know what else to do anymore. I'm trying all the techniques and doing everything the doctor tells me to. I'm just confused and lost. I'm not sure how much longer I can deal with this or cope with the panic attacks. Just had to vent. I know I'm not dying or anything of the sort but it feels like it right now. I just don't know. Help please!

I know what you are going through. I have been having whatever this is for 29 Days.

I can't stop thinking it's something terrible happening to me and everyone is just missing something. Makes me incredibly frustrated.


I know how it feels when you think, something is working, then it seems to weqr off or not work at all. It's frustrating and dissapointing then you feel like younhave been defeated. And of course you want to give up. But one key factor that I am just now learning is that we need to stop treating our symptoms and start trying to figure out what stressors in our lives have caused these imbalances that are making us have anxiety. There is a book called Healing Codes. I just bought it, but it's like a huge eye opener. Talks about sicknees, illness, depression and how doctors and pharmaceutical companies help us treat the symtoms... so similiar to a weed. We cut them and they look nice, for awhile.. but they also grow back no matter how times we cut them.. the only way to stop the weed for good.. pull it out by the root. Find the root cause and you can be healed. Its pretty amazing and simple after you really get it.

Anyway I just want to share this information with people like me becauwe it makes sense and I can't not tell you all about it


Yes! I get the dizzy feelings, they do come up in an unexpected kind of way.

You seem to be doing all the right things though, with the cbt and the meds.

There's nothing wrong with venting your feelings, we are all here to listen.


Thank you all so much.
