Can't seem to enjoy anything without getting anxiety

This has been an issue for a while. No matter where I am i have a really hard time keeping my mind off how I'm feeling. Tonight when u went to a concert I took 2 .5 klonopin beforehand and I was fine for the first hour of the concert then my mind started having obsessive thoughts... 

This makes me feel depressed and irritated.

  • I'm so sorry that you are having a bad time with your anxiety, I've had it for many years now and yes it's still here.  I wanted to ask a few questions if you don't mind but would like your permission first???

  • Sure. You csn message me if you want

  • First question would be at what age did your anxiety start? Have you ever been or went to er? The worst anxiety attack you ever had did you have more than three different symptoms?

  • What obsessive thoughts x

  • Hello, sorry your suffering so badly. I do sympathise. I have the same thing and it's horrid. I try to keep busy, to stop the constant thoughts going round in my head. Today I have that sinking feeling which makes me feel lonely and anxious. The sun is out and I'm trying to be positive, not  easy! You don't mention your age? Did something in your life trigger this? Feel free to offload as it helps. 

  • I'm 21. Back in 2014 I got involved with a bad guy and I remember waking up one morning so disoriented to the point I thought his cousin was him. I had my first huge panic attack at his house...

  • I had panic attacks when I was about 24, after my heart went AFIB (heart arrhytmia). I have my whole story at:

    One of the biggest lessons for me was that I do not have to accept every thought that comes into my mind, especially the panic/anxiety thoughts. I see it as if I arrest the thought, look at it, examen it and then deside if i'm going to take it or not. 

    If I don't like the thought I "arrest" it and take it out of my mind.

    I know it sounds weird, but it has worked for me. Try it.

  • What a Great idea..going to try this to see if it me.

  • Hello Katie..You sound just like me..if you want to contact me sometime..I would love to talk to you.

  • I don't really enjoy anything either. It's 

  • I am the same way but I've found one thing that seems to work... I give myself a "break" from stressing on my anxiety.  I just tell myself I'm going to give myself the next couple hours off of thinking about my health.  I'll still notice my symptoms but I tell myself I can start stressing again at a certain time.  It works sometimes.....  I hope you start enjoying life again soon.  I feel for you😔
