Encouragement please read

Dizziness, unbalance, eye floaters, upset stomach, nausea, acid reflux, derealization, wierd head sensations, dropping sensations, ibs, insomnia, weight loss, panic attacks, difficult swallowing, burning sensations in different areas, tingling sensations, sharp headaches, dull headaches, rubber band headaches, ringing ears, sensative to lights and sounds.

I started with this list of all the things I've experienced. There's more but that's what I can remember right now. But I wanted to start here because I wanted everyone on here to see how we are all going through probably the same exact things. From August to December I suffered through this so bad. I didn't know what was going on. I was not accepting this as anxiety which is why it was even worse day by day. Every thing you all are posting I read from time to time, I know exactly how you feel. I cried every single day from September until November, no kidding because I thought I was dying. I couldn't eat, wasn't sleeping. I lost so much weight that it made my anxiety even worse. I thought I had every disease from cancer, to hiv, to brain tumors, you name it. Every sensation I felt I was on Dr Google making my life miserable.

Anyway I'm saying all of this to say, if I can press though this and be to this point I am today. You all can do it. It's a process just like anything in life but we can and will get through it. It does truly start with acceptance. I will say that yes I still have my bad days, where I worry, doubt and am afraid but I conquer my bad days now by continuing to do my usual things in life as I did before I fell into this anxiety depression. A quick fix and tip for now, distract yourself with something you like or something that needs to be done.

Fast forward to today. Things took a turn for the better in November. I'm still learning and growing through this. I'm trying to change my ways of thinking. Which probably help bring me down the road it did. I've always been such a pessimistic person and I must say having bad anxiety and panic attacks (seeing as it makes you think the worst) being a pessimist didn't help my situation one bit. So as I stated I do still have my bad days but now I do have just as much good days as I do bad days and actually learning to keep pushing through my bad days. Im so much better at accepting it. I'm still practicing but it's getting there. I wanted to show you all something. I hope it encourages atleast one person. Right before I went down my path on this anxiety trip, I was trying to start up my company as a sports commentator. This pic you see is a photo shoot I did of me so I could promote my company. Anyway. When june came and I began to spiral down with my anxiety and panic attacks phase, I couldn't really focus on my goals I had for my comapny. I put every thing on holt. In August I stopped working because I didn't know what was happening to me. And that's when I felt I was hitting rock bottom mentally because I was so afraid of death and thinking I was dying. My life mentally spiraled down. However from August til now, I still managed to keep my word on doing a project for my comapany by getting highlights and interviews on sports in my community. I said that to say this. I still mustered up the courage to do some work towards my business even though mentally I wasn't all there. I wanted to show you all a few of my links of me doing some interviews. I want to let you all see how even though I was going through the worst of my anxiety I still got out there. The average person would not be able to tell I was suffering as bad as I did every day. There's one video I had an anxiety and panic attack right as I was headed out there. I cried the whole way there begging God to help me and I'm scared to die. And guess, what, I got right through it. There's another interview you can see I lost so much weight by then. I was at my lowest weight I had ever been in my life. But the average person, well those who didn't know me before, would never know I was so discouraged, I had low self esteem, I hated how I looked but I still pushed through and had fun doing my interviews (key is distraction). And then the other video my anxiety was so bad that day, I literally had to get my daughter to video the games because I felt like I was going to faint, I felt weak from not getting any sleep. I was so nervous to do the interview I thought I was gonna pass out but when it came time to do the interview (a distraction ) I got though it with no problem. I said all of that to say. We CAN and WILL get through this. I know for some if your in the stage I was back 4 months ago i know it's hard and stressful and discouraging but if I can find my way I know you will. Please feel free to ask me any questions. Also click the links and see my videos and see how I was struggling just like many of you but I still somehow got out and tried to push through even when I didn't think I could. Subscribe to my youtube channel to see all my videos and follow my journey. We are in this together. I hope you all enjoy.

  • Thank you for this β™₯️ Gives me so much hope!

  • You're welcome. I'm glad it did😊

  • Inspiring! Thank you for sharing

  • You're welcome

  • That was a great story! I agree with everoypu said. Thank you for sharing. Do you still get physical symptoms?

  • You're welcome. Yes I do. Ringing ears, fast heart beats. Sometimes still wake up in the middle of the night heart beating fast. Head and ear pressure. Twitches in certain part of the body. Eye floaters, unbalance, and few more things

  • How sweet to share your story for all those suffering and seeing no end in sight.

    God Bless you!

  • Thank you 😊

  • I suffer both panic and anxiety attacks but something does help heaps. Stupid as it may sound, colouring. I bought several colouring in books and the best of colouring pencils I can get. Boy does it help. That totaling with breathing exercises ... ( 10 ) each night. Makes a big difference. I take one mg of lorazapran at night to quieten down if I feel to nervous and with that I sleep pretty well. I think it's all to do with management, knowing what and how to do it when you start to feel an attack coming on. Don't just sit or lie there, get up and be occupied no matter what time of night it is..... xxxxx

  • No it doesn't sound stupid. I bet if it helps it helps. I remember as I'd be washing clothes and doing dishes even helped but I was going through it so bad I didn't stop to realize at those,times how it did work. Id get right through it. I did try my medication for 35 days. And gave it up. Yes I agree get up and do something no matter what time. As easy as it sounds. I'd sometimes struggle to do that by sitting there crying crying crying depressed and scared. And don't you know though, now I pretty much have the same symptoms and panic and anxiety attacks but my mind does not nearly make things as bad as it use to. All because I am accepting it better.

  • A lovely breath of fresh and optimistic post! I feel like someone opened the front and back door of this forum and let the breeze of positivity blow through!!!! So much better than the usual fearful chest pains!!! THANKYOU πŸŒ·πŸπŸŒ΄πŸŒΊπŸžπŸ˜ŽπŸ˜†πŸ˜‚πŸŒžβš˜πŸŠπŸ’πŸ‰πŸ

  • You're welcome. Crack open the root beer and let's enjoy the breeze. Well let's atleast try. And thank you. πŸ˜„β˜πŸ» cheers

  • It's beer o'clock here in Australia so I'm cracking a real beer! Cheers πŸ‘πŸ˜Ž

  • Did you have pressure in your ears and a sore neck? Dizziness x

  • Yes I still do. As a matter of fact, I'm going through it right now. The ear pressure and ringing ears. Still get the ocassional dizziness from time to times when I have my bad days and especially when it's near time my menustral. Mostly unbalanced feeling but I get confused with dizziness, unbalanced but it's almost the same. Not really sore neck.

  • It's hard to believe that ear pressure is a sign of anxiety. I have had lots of ear tests and they come back clear. It's so strange x

  • Omg I have all those things that you have mentioned, I really hope I can get through it all like you are. thank you for sharing x

  • Thank you for sharing!

  • i have it also but whats the worst these days is the burning sensations...i am having them now feels like my blood is boiling but mostly on one side left side. From my neck to down my ribs it just burns...my xilphoid feels like its also on fire on and off i also suffer from acid reflux so think anxiety is making it worse..how does your burning sensations feel?

  • Mine basically feel like a soft or dull burn or very hot sensation that peaks at different points on my body mainly like the thigh area and legs. Kinda like someone puts a warm or hot rag on your skin that kind of feeling for me

  • I had a similar situation, I lost one job and then had an interview a week later.. I felt just like you did.. weak from not eating and I made it through the interview. First week of work I wasn't amazingly better but I was coping. Now I'm into the 3rd week of my job and feel like I'm back to square one.

    I don't have 1 worry I have many little ones.

    So annoying

  • Yes I agree it's so many small worries that we just dwell on. It's like it's always something different never the same thing so we can just say ok I know exactly what this is and it happens all the time

  • Icanbeathis2016, LOVE THE RED CAR lol That would make me smile too. Thanks for sharing your story. Keep smiling and stay positive x

  • Thank you so much. I will definitely try to πŸ˜„

  • Thank you for sharing,I have had really bad anxiety for 15 months ,a couple of weeks ago I thought I was coming out of it ,I have been doing the Clare weeks programme that is all about accepting,but I'm having a bit of a set back which is normal,but I don't like it,being free from anxiety for a few weeks was wonderful...all your symptoms I have the lot,the head pressure and ringing in the ears is awful,I have a really bad neck at the moment gives me a bad headache..deep down I know it's anxiety,but when having an attack it's very hard to reason with yourself....good luck to you hope you continue to recover,keep us updated..xx

  • I sure will and thank you so much.

  • Thank you so much for this you give me hope

  • Wow I can relate to every symptom! How strange this anxiety is and also scary! As usual I was naughty and googled symptoms and then had the doctors making jokes like I will have my own car space soon :( I'm trying my hardest to get over the anxiety without meds but it's so hard when your mind starts to wander :( hope your well today :)

  • Hello, I'm new here, I'm glad that I'm not alone!!! We can beat this!!! I really enjoyed reading your post!!!
