  • It sounds like you have a lot going on. Take it one day at a time. Or better yet, take it one hour at a time if that would be better. Out of all the crazy annoying aniexty symptoms I get. The most bothersome is my heart beating super fast and sometimes skipping beats. It scares me so bad. I too think I will have a heart attack or worse, a cardiac arrest! I know all too well how stressfull it can be to deal with working, trying to quit smoking, trying to eat healthy, and to top it off having physical symptoms that make you feel horrible!? But, take everything slow. Try not to do so much all at once. Be extra kind and gentle to your body. You are doing the right things. May God Bless you and keep you safe.

  • Thank U

  • Anxietytroll, I feel for you. It sounds like your having a panic attack just thinking about all the things you are in the process of doing right now. I known that If I tried to do all these things at once, I would probably feel like I was going insane also. I agree with panicnomore99, sometimes slowing down and just taking life by the hour, minute, etc... helps. Also, I don't know your past history, but maybe instead of trying to change everything all at once, try focusing on one thing at a time. You don't even need to pick the hardest one. You also can start by just lowering your risk factors, instead of going from zero to hero. Life is a constant struggle, especially with anxiety. Please know there are people out there who are thinking about you and willing to talk.

  • U are so right kimbergram . I take on too much at a time and its weighing on me! U and panicnomore99 are so right one hour at a time! I'll be heading to work soon,hope you all have a great day!

  • How are you feeling now ?

    Have you made it to work ?

    You are not going insane honestly but anxiety likes to make you believe you are

    Last night I watched a film , the moment I started watching it I knew it was not my kind of film and would upset me but what did I do watch it ! now that might be classed as insanity doing something you know you won't like :-/

    So I was still up at 4 this morning because it had made me feel anxious as it had upset me , sometimes these things happen though and I just told myself I will no doubt sleep tonight :-)

    Now you are trying to deal with your anxiety , quit smoking and get healthy with exercising , all good positive things but do you feel trying to do them all at once might put extra pressure on you which you may not be ready for yet and create more anxiety ?

    Maybe do one at a time and then move on to the next , I know I can be all or nothing but I have had to learn as they say Rome wasn't built in a day :-/

    Hope you feel a lot better than when you wrote your post :-)

    Take Care x

  • Hey lulu-1 its always good to hear from u😊. I'll be heading to work soon and hopefully my day will be better, I did manage to sleep last night after the tossing and turning 😀 . Reassurance from someone who knows what your going thru is always great! Thank U!! I'll check back in later and let the forum know how my day went! I'm going to say a prayer and carry on!

  • Good for you , I am pleased you are sounding so positive even after a bad night , hopefully after working today tonight you might get some quality sleep :-) x

  • I made it thru work accompanied by a little dizziness and it was insanely hot, I work in a kitchen ! I came straight home after work and undressed because I was way too hot! I don't know why I was dizzy but if its like that tomorrow )God forbid) I'm going to the ER
