Just scared today

I have read so many posts and my heart goes out to all of you...

Today I feel like a zombie. And SO weak and out of it...Not trying to be funny about the zombie remark... I just don't feel right at all...

I guess its both Anxiety AND ibs... and I know that you don't have to feel all nervous and jittery for it to be anxiety... it can be deeply embedded and cause problems... Some we are not recognizing at the time.

I just feel so down, so discouraged today...and yes, scared. Even though I am older I still want to live...I want to enjoy life...

I am even tired of trying to describe 'symptoms'... because I am not sure that even helps. I have a CAT scan scheduled for this coming Wednesday afternoon... I hope they DON'T find anything 'wrong'... so I guess that just leaves it all to the mind part of it... Blood tests turned out fine last week... I just wish I could understand... I know YOU all feel the same way. Anyway, there are so many nice people on this site. The nicest I have ever come across on a forum. Thank you for that...all of you.

I send you all loving and healing thoughts... could you please send some to me, too?. Again, thank you for being there.

  • I hope you feel a little better now after posting. I too suffer from severe anxiety disorder which has (so the doctor says) caused IBS. I too feel dreadful today although I woke up feeling ok this morning. No one seems to listen in the real world to 'symptoms' so I know how you feel about that as well. People seem bored when you try to explain how you feel!

    I hope the scan goes well and you start to feel better soon or at least get some support. Take care. Here if you need to talk.

  • Thank you for your understanding...

  • I feel the same as well. I have been the ER twice this week. All my test and EKG look fine. I still don't feel right. I want to be able to enjoy life again also, I spend every minute of the day worrying. pleas pray for me, I will keep you in my prayers also!!!!

    God Bless

  • I too spend every day in a state of worry and anxiety your not alone!!!

  • Thanks for your reply. We will get better! I will keep you in my prayers.

  • I will send you healing energy and loving thoughts (my way of praying :) ) I sincerely thank you for your response... It really helps to know one is 'not alone' ...

  • every morning I wake up and say today is the day I'm not going to let my anxiety get to me. I'm going to ignore it and enjoy my day. It never happens - I am very soon feeling scared and panicked. It's so draining. I just wish the rational part of my brain would kick anxiety's ass!!
