Hi all hope you’re all okay and having a happy and anxiety free day!

I’m still not well 😞 keep getting weak legs and feel as if I will pass out with whatever I have, was sick Thursday, Friday, Saturday and was fine Sunday and Monday apart from the weakness and now today I’m being sick again 😞 I don’t want to take more time off work, I don’t get paid for days off sick. I feel like I’m letting everyone down and myself down. I’m scared I’ll lose my job since I’ve only been there for about 2 months and I’ve had 3 days off already. So the worry is making me feel anxious on top of whatever I have 😞

Have a great day everyone!

Thank you! 🙂

Have you been to the doctors to rule out any underlying condition? Are you actually vomiting food or is it bile? Drink plenty of fluid and get lots of rest. If it's all anxiety then you need to reassure yourself that you are ok and see a psychologist to keep you on track. It's hard to respond as you haven't given enough information. Hope you are ok?

Hello Anxious2befree! Thank you for your reply! I hope you’re having a good day! 🙂

I’ve got an appointment today to see what’s going on. I am vomiting half and half, in the mornings it’s mainly bile and after I’ve eaten I’m bringing up my food. Im usually pretty good at recognising when it’s my anxiety so this time I’m pretty sure a majority of it is unrelated to it. Im sure with rest and plenty of fluids I will be on the road to recovery. I’ve had bouts similar to this before a few years ago but not as bad. I get really jelly like legs so I try to force myself to eat to keep up my strength but it doesn’t seem to be helping much.

I was very sick last year with lightheadedness, vomiting up bile every morning and my stomach felt like it was going to explode with nausea from hell. I was told it was anxiety but I was convinced I was dying as after a few weeks of going through this then my hair started falling out which then I convinced myself I had cancer. Once I had seen the doctor and went the hospital a few times I realised it was anxiety. It's a terrible thing. I found that eating when you feel hungry but only small portions so I would have like 10 almonds and then later some yogurt or a piece of toast. Just start little then work your way up. You can do it stay strong X

Oh dear! That doesn’t sound too pleasant 😞 anxiety is an awful thing! I wouldn’t wish it on my worst enemy. People often don’t realise the physical impact it has on us, there’s so much stigma surrounding it. I’ve just seen the doctor, I’ve been diagnosed with a stomach/gastrointestinal infection so now I can take the right steps to recovery 🙂 how long have you suffered anxiety if you don’t mind me asking?

I have had it now for nearly 3 years I think. Glad you have answers to your problem.

Sorry to hear it’s been that long! I’ve had mine for about 4/5 years, it gets easier to deal with, it’s all about acceptance and not letting it beat you 🙂 I hope you’re doing well 😄

Yeah I have come to terms with it and have my good/bad days but some days you think WTF and panic. I used to have up to 10 panic attacks a day it was horrific and now I have only had 2 in the last 11months so that's fantastic for me. I just hate the lightheadedness and the weird feeling in my head. I can deal with everything else. It's horrible but I soldier on. I have found that being reassured by others who also suffer is a god send to me as it puts my mind at ease. Thank you :)

Oh you poor thing! I can’t imagine having panic attacks to that extent! I’m glad you’re doing better now 🙂 yes the light headedness is the worst part I find, especially when you’re eyes begin to lose focus and you have that feeling like you’re dropping.
