So I have always been a worry wart (as my parents say). But lately it has gotten out of hand. When my wife and I were expecting our first baby is when it got unbearable. It started with having Chest Pains everyday, which quickly lead to anxiety over having a heart attack. I went from one doctor to the other just knowing that the last one had missed the heart problem. I did EKG's stress test, ultrasounds etc... No one could find anything. Soon I started feeling hopeless and as I would get dressed in the morning I just knew that I would die in the clothes that I picked out that day. It seemed that relief would only come if I actually did die.
Then a doctor finally convinced me of my anxiety problem and I started taking some medicine. At that time I also started working out, for the first time in 4 years my chest pains and anxiety went away. I started enjoying life again!!!
Well I got slack in the working out and the chest pains have returned and surprise surprise the pain brought its good friend anxiety!! This week has been rough because it feels like pain and pressure on my chest and I just had to vent because I just CANNOT go back to living like I did a couple of years ago. Thanks for talking the time for listening.
