Mainly, I have to give most credit to my wonderful boyfriend of 2 years who helped me get out of the worst of it, by helping me be happy, feeding me happy thoughts, taking me out of the house, almost forcing me to go out into the world.

I started to try and sleep early and rise early, eat every meal at the same time with few snacks, walk and exercise regularly.

I also really need to thank my beautiful late dog Ridley who passed a month ago aged 17,we were best friends and we did everything together. A dog really can be your best friend.

Hello, when you had anxiety did you used to have cardiac palpitations? if yes, what did you feel when you had them?

Hi Vanessa, yes i did have heart palpitations and I still do, just less severe. Everyones is different, but for me, it just made me feel as though i was about to have some sort of heart attack, or my heart was trying to escape out of my chest.

Its so difficult to explain!

It's awful... Last night I felt the hart beat inside, he was slow and he was uncontrolled. I felt everything! One heart beat, a pause of 3 seconds, another heart beat, and always like this. The heart beats were strong, it was like a trembling muscle but on inside and this muscle was my heart!

Do you think it's "normal"?

I am no doctor so i cant say what is normal or not, but i have felt that before, and it is not good!

I recommend that you visit your doctor and you explain to them exactly what you feel in your heart because it could be an underlying issue aswell as anxiety:)

i wish you well

Let us know how you have helped yourself or how others have helped you! Thank you and nice to meet you!
