  • You'll b fine, I'M praying 4 u

  • I take my temp/bp all the time to make sure I'm OK.Think your temp is normal range so don't worry(easier said than done I constantly worry over stuff) Don't use Dr Google because he can make you stress even more!If you are concerned and live in the UK give 111 a call! It can't be easy for you when your son has problems as well.

    Take care


  • Thanks going ring boots they should now ... like u take mine all time .To Internet made worse xx

  • Sure you all be OK!Yep best to speak to someone who knows best!


  • Thanks kath x :)

  • Hey how did it go when you rang Boots~did they say your temp was OK?I try not to do mine all the time now if I can help it,but a bit like a comfort blanket to make sure aok(not done it 2 day but did yesterday)

    Are things any better with your son?It must be a terrible worry for you when he has such dark thoughts~I hope both him and you are getting support through this time!

    Take care


  • Hi Kate .. boots wortied me said low... but rang 111 . She said maybe was cold .. but happened again last night .. I'm got ear one .And one put under tounge. . Reading on that one's low weather .. not reading right not sure ear ones more correct .. but not feeling great today ferl fighting stop my self going over edge hun .. anixery really mess with head .... son getting help yes .... me can't take pills so fight best can .. worry end up away as sopose me feel losing contol don't now much about anixery sign or not ... very kind you to ask thanks Kate xx hope your ok dine well 2 days I take mine every half hour x

  • Oh hey think you are taking temp far 2 much! All sorts of things can alter your temp~ie having a cuppa going in the bath etc! I think you need to speak to your doc about your fears its not doing you any good at all~ think all this stuff with your temp making your anxiety worse!I know I do take mine quite a bit but at most just once a day!I don't take meds either tried antidepressants but made me a lot worse and took ages to get out of my system!Pleased to hear your son is getting help,but you need to look after yourself as well!I find my anxiety is worse when I have time to dwell on stuff and my mind goes into overdrive!I worry about everything!!

    Try and wean yourself off doing your temp so much,I know its easier said than done,but doing it is stressing you out far too much and won't help!

    Let me know how you get on,try and chill out,have a relaxing bath and watch some TV to try and take your mind off it all


  • Thanks Kate .. will try your right taking to much did ring 111. Yesd .. is easy said done awful thing anixery .. think my touble is dwell on things to much pain here I painc ... had bath so try chill.. now hun.. so kind nice talk to someone now then... yes I make my anixery worse when I try them. Why trying fight it alone . But need do things u say puy mind off things thinking off all time mean checked out hosp just over 10 days ago xxx jill

  • Well try and remember that all sorts of things can alter your temp, age lifestyle etc!Pleased you ve had a bit of relaxation it can help us worry heads a bit.Try your hardest not to take your temp til say 2 morro am wen you wake up,If you feel OK in yourself try not to worry!

    Hope you sleep well (I can get off to sleep but have terrible early morning anxiety + that's when panic takes over)Oh I don't know this anxiety is a terrible illness!We just have to do our best to carry on!Keep :) know how hard this can be at times~Im really good at hiding my anxiety and people think I m a happy confident person!(ha ha tears of a clown and all that ~ that's me!!)


  • Thanks Kate ...yes so many reasons ... yes awful think deal with used be gd hidein mine can't now ... want take any more try listening cd see help xx hope u get gd bites sleep to . I painc soon I wake up to but me mine carry on all day .. hope chat soon thanks again xxxx jill :) 💕

  • Hi Jill well back to work for me again to day and been awake most of the night worrying!Had usual early morning anxiety, mine comes and goes during the day but least bit thing can trigger off panic(I can get sort of electric shock feelings through my body)!

    Remember try not to take your temp too much!!And hope you have a good day!


  • Hi Kate hope work went well yesd .. no not took temp much at all .. Get tingles in all body head all day .. feel sick awful hun .. hope day gos well thanks again talking to me xx jill

  • Hi Jill,yep work OK I always worry first day back tho.Good you haven't took temp so much!I often get that "electric shock" feeling when panic/anxiety takes over its awful!Try and keep strong, with temp ! When you get that sickly feeling try drinking ginger or peppermint tea,it can soothe the feelings!Well off to work in 5 mins or so~ take care you are doing really well~ and hope things not too bad with your son!

  • Oh Jill sorry to hear you are having a bad day!know how you feel mate,I got my car back which I was pleased about.and then I was just sitting relaxing and all of a sudden I could feel panic rising up!So had a few drops of rescue remedy to calm myself down! Unless you suffer like we do no one understands these terrible feelings of dread!You have so much to deal with as well, sorry your son no better but at least your little granddaughter a gem!

    You take care ~ you are a dear friend to me even though we have never met~I wish you lived next door!:)

  • Well you never know one of these days we might meet!I know its sometimes hard to be grateful with what we've got.I have 2 lovely sons and 2 little grandsons + do try to be happy with that I sometimes think I am so ungrateful with life!But really can't help the way I feel at times!I don't take meds either, worked 10 or so years ago,but 3 years ago when it all flared up again made me really I'll.Propranolol was fine but didn't want to rely on it,so stopped after a couple of months!

    Yep aok with car now at least I won't fry now!

  • Yep same here I live in a village that has one shop(and that's not very good!) I don't really drive too far I'm not too keen on motorway driving!I worry every day when my youngest drives to work!

    When you are alone you can over think things~ that's my problem as well,I honestly think that having someone to share your problems with is a great help especially when they are going through the same stuff!

    Well yet again in PJs and dressing gown! (I def live life in the fast lane ha ha!) Tomorrow wen I'm out in my car gonna have air con on full pelt(even if I freeze to death)

    Keep :) and try and relax tonight,I'm gonna watch the soaps then read for an hour or so in bed!

  • Oh Jill you sure have it tough!I am separated (not yet divorced tho) part of my anxiety was through this relationship I never felt good enough(it would take a week to tell you details) I live with my youngest son and 3 cats!Just remember this my friend you are NOT alone! You have me even though we don't see each other~we still have a connection! Try and embrace the countryside you live in~go for a walk and clear your head!
