Hi there, yeah I can totally agree with these, all of them, sometimes they take turns and come and go but I have had all these for about a year.

First, slow, deep, breaths. I like to do 5 seconds in, hold for 2, 5 seconds out. Just focus on breathing and nothing else for the moment. I know, that might be a little hard at first, but if you keep doing it, it'll get easier. Repeat that until your mind clears a little. Your going to be ok! :) As for your symptoms, I'm pretty sure they all have to do with your anxiety. The reason you feel funny is because of the stress that's building up. I know what that feels like, not fun. You said you feel scared of getting better? Based on my experience with anxiety, i too felt scared to change. I think that's because your body has made a "comfort zone" in your anxiety (if that makes sense) CBT really is an effective technique to help get rid of anxiety. May i also recommend meditation? There is some good anxiety meditations on youtube.

Good luck! I know you'll get through this!

Hi maggiecass1988, As all of us do, you got an A+ on your symptoms from Anxiety. They feel real because they are physically caused by your negative mind set. A thought comes to mind, a red flag goes up and Alerts your body that you may be in trouble. Instead of sending out the troops, our body sends out plenty of Adrenaline so we can run and/or fight. When we sit there and freeze in terror, that adrenaline has no where to go except to our muscles and nerves, making us experience all these weird sensations.

You're tired but afraid to sleep, you could take short term medication but afraid of side affects, you really want to get better but even that scares you some, do you see how you are putting up those red flags of alert with just the negative thoughts.

CBT can help you start moving forward and so I am hoping you set up an appointment soon and keep us posted. You are going to be okay, just need to make a few minor adjustments in your way of thinking. xx

One other thing, if you google stuff, like symptoms, google is just going to give you the bad information. In my mind, it's one of the WORST tools for anxiety sufferers because it just adds fuel to the fire. Plus, how can we know what's true on the internet anymore...i guess what i'm trying to say is, if you do google, don't take everything at face value. :)
