Stressed out

I am so stressed out over the forgetfulness, Blank mind, muscle weakness etc etc etc that I am constantly getting :( it is making me so worried like this is honestly ridiculous...How can anxiety make us feel so horrible. I don’t want to have a worse health issue or something but always paranoid of it despite my dr and family telling me I’m fine I just am so stressed out about it it keeps on putting me in constant panic I’m really frustrated and not happy about this I’m so uncomfortable all the time I really don’t like this one bit :(

Muscle weakness is probably from being in bed so much and honestly the forgetfulness is probably due to your poor appetite and lack of sleep.. have you talked to your doctor about maybe putting you on a med like valium I think it would help ease your mind a bit, help you relax.

I refuse to go on medication again because of the terrible reaction I had. Don’t really believe in pills anyway. Probably due to lack of sleep my appetite isn’t poor

O ok I thought when we talked the other day you said you were not eating much.. I'm sorry your going through such a hard time.

No I’ve been eating fine thank you. I’ve been trying to work on my sleep too but when we talked the other day I said I wasn’t sleeping much. Maybe that’s what you got confused. It’s okay though. It’s just difficult being alone and not being able to do much it’s uncomfortable but I just wanna feel better

It’s tough being home alone sometimes isn’t it? Nice you have a big family though :) I’m home alone with my dog too all day for 11 hours then at night I go downstairs but I’m in the room the rest of the time nothing happening really I think I feel bad a lot cause there’s nothing to stimulate my mind

It does I keep myself busy the best I can but someday it gets very lonely, which lets our minds run rapid! It's hard not to get depressed sometimes isolation is never good.

I read your post as I promised. So you have a lac kof mental and physical stimulation. That can affect me too and makes my anxiety and depression worse...so I try to force myself to get out of bed every day and find something to occupy my mind and body. Doesn't always work, but I try. Sometimes like now I open this venue and read what is happening to others, and I learn something from how they are handling things. Some days I have too much to do that my time is less available to read the posts sent to me and I must choose ones to read.

I make myself read something every day and then test myself on how much I remember....I reread again because I know with me my anxiety can sneak in and affect my attention because it wants all my attention.

I hope you have better days and maybe have a friend or two that you can call when you are feeling isolated. I do that sometimes and it helps because I ask what is happening with them.xx
