  • Hi. Sorry you dont feel too well. Anxiety can affect all sorts of things in your life - from making you believe that you are about to die to having strange thoughts. It is difficult to be sure about your particular situation - there is a good chance that you are also depressed as well having anxiety to deal with. Depression will certainly affect your moods and perhaps what you think you feel for those around you. You say that he has been your rock and that you love him - thats what I would go with then. Temporary thoughts and feelings brought on be anxiety/stress/depression will eventually disappear. Is this the kind of thing you would be able to talk with your husband about? It might help if you could. But I know that sometimes it is not always possible to discuss things like that.

    See how things go over a period of time - dont jump into anything. Sometimes we just need to be able to write things down and that helps clarify them in our heads. I hope that things will be ok for you.


  • Hope this helps heather I've been to talks cbt numerous amounts of therapy and consolidation I am a successful man I work as a chartered accountant from I was 21 I got my first anxiety attack my life never was the same again people say oh oh naw ur fine if we where fine why we need therapy or medication to deal with our body's going haywire on us a seizure mode that's the only way I can explain it long story short tho medication saved my life and my soul and gave me strength to be a father as that plague of an illness drive me so low was unbelievable further more I have always been healthy in the gym I do not smoke I bearly ever drink now you would think I would be a role model far from it this is a disease physical and mental we have to just live with it my darling... But on your subject yes medication will do all those things to you and more my dear but it's a small price to pay to hide the devil lol you know in your heart u love him I have been down every road your facing or going to face the medication nums the anxiety it also can overpower your sleep and make you awful tired or a half a case of red bull looney it can also my dear num feelings even initiative yes yes all from the magic pill but don't let it feather the head too much it passes very quick you will be fine trust hope that helped :)

  • You mention medication! When we have these to inhibit our negative emotions they can inhibit ou "feel good" emotions too. It's hard to find a balance. Wishing you well.

  • thanks for your reply
