You sound really fed up and I can understand it can seem it is never ending sometimes

I get you worrying about a brain tumor I worry over this to as I suffer with migraines but I have to tell myself I have been seen by a doctor they say I am fine and they are the experts not my stupid anxiety what likes to think it is

I think with Christmas and the pressure we put on ourselves does not help either but don't fight it , get your feet up as much as you can , make sure your have some time for you to try & relax be it a nice warm bubble bath a movie whatever and keep in mind that this is your anxiety nothing else and try and let it know you are the boss and not it , will get fed up eventually if you can keep putting those thoughts into practice

Merry Christmas to you to and I hope 2016 brings us all a better year :-)

Take Care x


I have had a very odd head for a few weeks. I feel dizzy most of the time, and I get waves of pressure. It really scares me, and keep having awful thoughts that I have a tumor or something . I do have anxiety. And am quite stressed at the mo. Having the funny head everyday, isn't helping my anxiety. Does anyone else suffer from a dizzy, heavy head most days? Is it normal?


I get this! I've got it now I feel weird like I'm floating!! It's horrible I feel sick aswell.. Start cbt today tho hoping that will sort me out ☺️ X


Hi ya

I will be starting cbt soon. Could you let me know how you think it goes? Thanks


What is cbt?


Hi hun

Iv got this information of a website for you, hope it helps explain it xx

Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) is a talking therapy that can help you manage your problems by changing the way you think and behave.

It is most commonly used to treat anxiety and depression, but can be useful for other mental and physical health problems.

CBT cannot remove your problems, but it can help you deal with them in a more positive way. It is based on the concept that your thoughts, feelings, physical sensations and actions are interconnected, and that negative thoughts and feelings can trap you in a vicious cycle.

CBT aims to help you crack this cycle by breaking down overwhelming problems into smaller parts and showing you how to change these negative patterns to improve the way you feel.

Unlike some other talking treatments, CBT deals with your current problems, rather than focusing on issues from your past. It looks for practical ways to improve your state of mind on a daily basis.

It does make it seem less scary when you see otther people have same symptoms. Just annoying when you cant kick it.


Yes it does make you feel better knowing g your not alone n ppl have your axact symptoms and are diagnosed with the same Illness what helps me a lot is Being entertained like actually doing something to not think of these symptoms


Hey just got back! First session is basically explaining how you feel and what make you start feeling like this.. Things you do for reassurance ect.. I feel good atm since I left! I've also got homework 😊 X
