Medication would only control it short term anyway. I'm like you in that I really get worked up when something bad happens whether real or anticipated. I know longer take antianxiety meds and have learned other ways to deal with stress. One of them is deep breathing, meditation/relaxation techniques and imagery. These take practice but do work. A pill may be a quick fix but these techniques can be done as many times as you need to without any symptoms. It can't hurt you. CBT therapy is also an option. I wish you well. The support of this forum is a great plus as well.


Thankyou for getting back to me. Over the years I try to do too much I want to get everything done and done lol, but I have to slow down other wise am going to send my body over the top! Thanks for getting back to me x

Hi. I get a bit like that too. I suffered bad anxiety in the past & still occasionally. If something is wrong, my partner & I argue or one of the kids are ill for example, I'm a mess. Anxious & panicky. For me personally, I like to go upstairs and sit on my bed with my feet on the floor and head in my hands and just 5 mins of deep breathing to slow my heart and calm myself down. Just thought you could try it 😊
