I am still doing battle as soon as I wake each morning. Neither I nor my drs. know why nor have any suggestions that help me so I go one day at a time. What I would like to know is how many if any of you feel FEAR not nervousness most of the day or for long periods? It is a fear that causes your stomach to "clinch" and sometimes you actually "shake". I am logical enough to know it is not normal to be like this. I practice my CBT thinking but to no avail. I think of "anxiety" as being worry, what I feel is FEAR and impending "doom". Does any of this make sense? ....then again my "condition" doesn't make sense!
