Anxiety & health

Hi guys , havnt posted in awhile . Had a shakey few month and my anxiety is so bad now. My best friend was diagnosed with cancer just before xmas. It was a massive shock and we were all utterly heartbroken. She is only 35 with a young family. I hadnt been sleeping well , having panic attacks ect. New year I tried to get a grip of things , started a exercise class twice a week, trying eat healthier ect. But this last 2 weeks have been worse than ever, were all sick at the moment including the kids.

Im lieing in bed now with dd2 watching a movie, I feel awful, so much tension in my neck, I feel like my bodie is paralysised with tention. Im so so tierd , pressure on my head, heat flashes ect. I feel so emtional today, idont know how to get myself out of this. Ive zero energy. My kitchen /living room is a mess, their is a piles & piles of ironing to be done and put away but ive no energy to do it. Sorry for the long winded post need to get it out.

Apologise for the typos im too tierd to even correct them.


Hi you have had a lot to take in and when we have anxiety everything feels worse.I know what you mean by Tension in the neck ! I seam to carry tension in my neck/shoulders and my back feels stiff.like everything is knotted up.I to get the fatigue i sometimes get it when I'm not even feeling anxious .but I find it always happens after I've had a stressful or wording time.I'm so sorry your friend has had bad news this has probably added to your tension.


Worrying time that should say ,


Thanks for your reply. Im so worried about her, she was so upset for month and I struggled badly with this.

I want be able to feel ok and live my life instead of trying to get out of things, like days out , travel ect. We have a trip to london in 2 weeks and Im dreading it, I dont know how ill come with all the traffic & noise. It wasnt my idea to go but I just went along with it , instead of saying no!
