So I started anxiety late may of this year. The first time it hit me that I actually noticed it was when I was sitting on the couch. Out of nowhere I felt like I was going to die right then. I didn't understand it. I have lived with this anxiety literally everyday. I have some server ones, like right now im having a bad one. I haven't had a real bad one in weeks till now. I have a headache, light headed, vision change. I don't know anymore. I think I have a brain anyrusms tumor. I dont know. My blood pressure has always been great always till I took it 4 days ago it changed to 124/77 im freaked out because of that. Sometimes my ears get plugged or I get shooting pains in my ears and head that only last 2 seconds still scary as he'll. I feel like im going crazy . I try to talk myself out of it but it's hard. I Google everything. I will sometimes when im brave enough google about brain anyrusms( thats my biggest fear)and read all that junk and then it haunts me later on. I just want to learn to cope with this. I want to not hAve a over active mind anymore. Any advice would be great or if someone could message me that goes through this

Firstly your blood pressure is bang on so you can stop worrying about that. Mine was 160/110 now that is high but i take BP tablets now for it. I have been off work for 5 months with anxiety had it for over 40 yrs on and off it has controlled me and I have always managed to hide it. But to be honest I don't care who knows now its what I have and I have to get on with it. I have started looked at mindfullness which is of some help but CBT is great and you can do it online. If we could all just manage to not give a dam and accept everything that came our way we would not be suffering. Well I am doing my best to control this awful anxiety instead of it controlling me. Good luck Trish x
