Don't lose faith. Your life is still very valuable so give yourself credit. You can overcome this, at least within can. God is always with us. You are never alone and things will turn out for the good wether we are able to see it or not. Please keep the hope alive. Much love! πŸ˜‡πŸ˜š


Just wanted to let you know that I myself have these exact same symptoms that you listed every single day. It's very hard to live life when you feel like this because of anxiety. I'm truly sorry that you feel the way you do and I hope you get better. Everyone loses their way sometimes you will be okay. I will definitely be thinking about you and praying that you get better. Take care hun

Thanks guys for the support I feel like I've had enough of life with this anxiety it taken every bit of strength from me I hate the fact it's broken me down bit by bit into someone I barely recognize anymore I've lost my job my home my confidence I can't actually remember the person I used to be .

You are not alone. I say to myself all the time how I miss the old me. And where did she go.. But I think to myself.. She is still here and she is fighting. I am fighting to get myself back. It doesn't happen over night or even in a week.. And just remember.. Dwelling on the pains you feel with anxiety make it worse. What you give power to has power over you! Start taking baby steps into getting better and I believe that one day we will all get there. You just have to believe in yourself and not give up. Don't let it win. You are in control.. Don't lose sight of the world around you. Just breath and remember that everything will be okay!

I have had anxiety since I was 17. But never this bad. I am now 20 and my anxiety is horrible. I live with it every single day and it is very hard. I have a couple health issues that can cause me pain plus anxiety on top of it makes it worse. I find myself crying everynight cause I don't want to wake up and deal with the next day. Cause everyday is hell and pain. But I have to believe that I will get better. I have to tell myself that. Most days I don't even leave my house cause I am terrified. It is honestly the hardest thing I have ever dealt with in my life.

Hi Susan it's so hard to fight each day you solve one symptom and end up with a new one I suffer with daily symptoms which makes it hard I with I had your positivity I'm on anxiety meds but not helping still feel awful I dread waking up I've lost my job now and had to move in with inlaws for support but I don't feel I'm getting better I'm glad to here your at that stage to try and overcome this hope you get back to normal again x

Anxiety will find new ways to trick you into feeding it. Dizziness may go away so boom! Here's some chest pains. Chest pains go away! How bout some tingling? I'm in the process of recovering and went from 24/7 terror to just general anxiousness with up and down spikes. Optimistic about getting better but i could stay where I'm at and live a reasonable life. You'll get better it could take awhile but it will happen.
