Hopeless

Hello everyone this is my first attempt on here but here goes. I've suffered health anxiety for over a year now. first started with sore throat which seemed to go on forever think that's when the anxiety seed was planted started to think throat cancer, then after agonising mental torture backwards and forwards to the doctors was referred to have camera down which was fine all clear. I was so happy get on with my life enjoy it ! but no that anxiety seed was planted and growing ! ! next was lung cancer absolutely hysterical crying to everyone that would listen! Then it was bone cancer , brain tumor the list goes on . I am seeing a cbt counsellor at the moment but it's a battle going on in your head all logic goes out the window ! now suffering again numb little finger or fingers or hando when I wake up on a morning doctor said carpel tunnel I'm not convinced , and to top it all I have to have a red mark on leg looked at im being referred so I'm going through hell again. feel teary all the time so fed up with it all just want to be happy an just get it off my chest so came on here , sorry for going on

Welcome! You have absolutely nothing to be sorry for in reaching out for help and support! That takes courage!!! Excellent you are seeing counselor! I believe that is the way I discovered some of the reasons I have anxiety and some of the triggers as well as different methods of helping the anxiety. I've been diagnosised with severe anxiety and panic disorder. I try to avoid the major triggers. Like my family. Ha! Can't stay away from them I love them. I just limit my time! I support you on your journey in dealing with all this. You will find excellent support and information here. Sometimes I just read and don't post. By receiving support and giving support there is much we can do for each other! We all have had our struggles and we reach out with a helping hand!

Hello McLanglin

Thank you for your post it's all rings true and I agree since I've joined this site I feel I have someone else to talk to. I have had couselling a few times but have and are fighting issues still I've been on the waiting list for over a year now!!! For more couselling!! I'm on medication and joined a wellbeing class for a few weeks in the meantime but this forum is a very big help like you say

Thank you again Take Care

Goldfish_ My Mother always tells me to let go and let God. I wish it could be that easy. I'm a spiritual individual. I pray for help. In the darkest hours it gives me a sense of peace unfortunately doesn't take away the severe anxiety and panic!😕

If you put your faith in God, he will deliver you from this...keep faith and hope alive. Even if you feel like you can't, tell yourself you CAN and you WILL...I promise it will get better. 😊😇🙄I am a sufferer myself, but I am finding that through God my life is getting beer.

Hello Sharon51

bless you I would think like that too with God always worrying about being a burden or something but we are not of course lol. I do worry about upsetting my family I get stressed so much sometimes I can shake and snap at the closest to me I hate myself when I act like that. In turn it brings on my depression!! lol I just have to smile to myself in the end what am I like sometimes it's like I'm watching myself and it's not really me!! Sorry to go on sometimes these thoughts come on to my head as I'm writing.

Take Care

I believe strongly in God. I pray. God isn't a fairy godmother. I've found a sense of comfort in knowing Jesus walks beside me.
