I guess I'm here for some empathy. My severe anxiety started 16 months ago when my husband had major surgery. It continued and was made more difficult by an ill parent, an ill step dad, and a mean boss (after having a great one for years).
Too make things worse for myself I went on Citalopram cold turkey last September.
Then in November I lost my mom and in March I lost my stepdad. Now I'm left taking care of their spouses.
Stress, sick, panic, and freaking out.
I thought when my job ended I will feel somewhat better, but I don't at all.
I know think I am dying, My body feels like it just can't function anymore. I feel like my body will shut down at any minute. I'm dizzy, soooooo weak, anxious, loss of appetite, angry, shaky, stuffed head, on and off back pain, and more.
Has anyone else felt like they can't do anything; like their body is DONE.
Can anxiety finally put you down?
Docs tell me it's GAD, but man is this tough,
I am a happily married, successful, woman with three great kids and a very happy life. I, however, don't enjoy a second of it because I am always sick and anxious.
I would love to hear if anyone was this bad and survived. And, if so, how did you survive?
