Help me please

I am a 22 year old female with a long medical history but the key thing is i had stage4 cancer at 10 days til i was 2. I have had numerous problems growing up amd was even in some clinical test which proved the chemo affected my brain developement(organization skills). So i came across this forum because recently i have been having alarmingly increased amounts of anxiety and panicking feelings. I have a constant pressure behind my left eye(my good eye), and weirdly have this feeling to keep yawning alot. I am getting a bit worried cuz of my history and would love some feedback on any ideas that would help. I have scheduled an appointment with a psychiatrist which isnt til the 21st. Any feed back wpuld be seriously appreciated, thank you!

  • God bless you. I am so sad to hear your story. I am happy you pulled through. All I can say is my love is with you and God is always there. You are not alone. 😙😇

  • Thank you! I'm really trying my hardest to stay possitive in this ever expanding darkness.

  • Jelly rose, have you seen yourMedical doctor to rule out medical issue? Are you on medications of any kind ? Started a new med? Check for side effects ? It is very very understandable to be concerned, make appt with medical PRIMARY doctor to rule out physical problems, pressure behind your eye could be simple sinus infection. 😘

  • I'm on the same stuff ive been taking for years. Heart meds and birth control. But my father also recommended the same thing and i think i will cause this isn't right. I have had spouts of depression and anxiety but nothing like this. I fear maybe even chemo at an early age has effected my brain over the years but i dont know for sure. I appreciate the feed back. I really do

  • You're brave and beautiful! I am so proud of you and I am sending peace and prayers your way. Yes, you need to vent and talk it out so I am happy you are going to see someone.

You can beat this! Find how to do SKY breathing on Youtube to help you relax.

  • Thank you for your compassion. It means alot! And i will definitely check out that sky video. Breathing excercises have been the only thing keeping me from losing it.

  • I tend to yawn a lot when I am having anxiety..yawning is also a symptom of withdrawal...have u quit taking something recently??

  • No actually. All i take is my heart medication and birth control. I did take one alpazolam but that was cause i was on tge verge of a serious panick attack. But i try to take it sparingly as it causes weird sideeffects like causing me to be jumpy and more easly frightened.

  • I hope you feel better ❤️

  • Hi JellyRose, sorry to hear you've had a rough start to life.

    Definitely agree with the others to have a check up to rule out anything physical/medical.

    Please keep us informed on how things go for you. I wish you all the best.
