Hellos everyone I am 26 years old and i am an anxiety sufferer for the past 5 years now... My first attack was 5 years ago and i have the same symptoms as most shaky, numerous thoughts some depression it was my first time ever feeling anxious and I wasnt sure how to deal with it. With time i started feeling better and lasted a good 4 years happy dealing with some anxiousness but i was in control of it. Backtrack to a month ago i was at work and my vision went blurry they took me to the ER ran cat scan and some tests and everything came out normal... I was dealing with a big stomach virus that made me lose alot of fluids and in my head i thought that that was the reason why i got the double vision. But as most anxious people think i started to think negative blamed some of my symptoms on me having a heartattack or stroke epilepsy or even seizures. This controls my life Ive felt worse than the first time i experienced anxiety. I feel like i cant control it anymore... This has affected my work im scared to go to work because im scared of having a panic attack or going crazy or losing control. When i am at home i am fine but the moment im somewhere by myself or work or school i feel horrible. I need to have someone of my family around me at all times to feel better my brother mother fiance. I take deep breaths they dont work i try to distract myself doesnt work i even joined a gym and i am speaking with a counsler but i feel like i am stuck and theres no way out... Again the only time i feel a tad bit better is when i am at home with my fiance and stepkids. I need to see a light at the end of the tunnel....all i think about is quitting my job but i have to pay for school out of pocket....and everytime im at work i dont barely last a whole day i have to tell someone to pick me up qnd i feel like such a burden.... Am I going crazy?
