Why is this happening

Why is this happening to me? I'm 45 years old and I have just started to have these anxiety feelings for the past three weeks. I am having a hard time coping with this. I hate being inside the house, I like the openness of the outdoors but this is not normal. Why is this happening to me? I am not going to hurt myself or anything but it's hard for me to see how I'm going to live with this for years. This is not normal. I want normal back.

Thank you. My wife is going or of town for three weeks and I can't be weak for her. I took a lorezapam 1mg to help get over my two day episode. It sends to have helped. Only feeling a little tired but in here for my wife instead of in my anxiety.



IVe also recently got anxiety, im scared and can't cope with it !! It's getting me down, are you having physical symptoms too?


Yes. Heart beating fast, hot, can't focus, only on anxiety. I took a lorezapam earlier and I'm doing better. I hate pills but my episode lasted two days so I gave up this time. I used benadryl to fall asleep. Best thing I ever done.

I'm new at this too but I feel your pain. I'm sorry.
