  • That should say traumatic event earlier this year bloody auto spell ha ha

  • Hi Dangy1, my belief has always been that anxiety is prompted by some traumatic event including surgery, sickness etc. It is amazing the symptoms that stress can bring on, leaving us wondering if it is a serious medical issue. Once you have seen a doctor, had tests done and a diagnosis of stress and anxiety, then the next step is to find a way to alleviate the stress. Sometimes it's not possible, then we have to find ways to cope with daily stresses, but it can be done. With the help of a good therapist and sometimes medication at the start, you can work towards a goal of getting your life back. There is no magic pill and even with therapy, it's got to come from within you. First thing is in believing that these symptoms are coming from the negative thoughts you put in your mind. A therapist will be able to advise you as to how to turn the negative into positive thought pattern. When it involves a traumatic event as you experienced, then that event needs to be addressed. Please have another talk with your doctor and have him direct you to someone or something that may help. Spinning your wheels with thinking it must be something medically serious will keep you in that rut. I wish you well and remember small baby steps is better than not taking any.
