Fear

I have anxiety and I can't stop it because of the bad thoughts. I'm afraid of the anxiety especially the fear.

Trees, have you ever read 'Self Help For Your Nerves' by Claire Weekes? I really do think this would help you. I've read several of your posts recently and I really do think this would help you to let go of the fear cycle. xxx

I read that book many years ago and when it said if your scared of the anxiety it will get worse. I can't stop being afraid. I have bladder pain, rib pain, back pain. It's hard to stop being afraid of fear. My husband wants me off all pills or we have no marriage

I am sorry to be blunt, but in my opinion you have no marriage now.

Trees, let it go. COntrol our breathing and just let it go. Has anything happened to you yet? Just let go. Float and thank a higher power for the good things in your life. Let it go.

Trees, Can you define what you are afraid of or is it just the fear of fear? If it is the latter, then you should ask yourself "what is the worst thing that can happen to me?". Is it having a heart attack, dying, embarrassing yourself or fearing for another's life? Really think this through? If you cant then you probably are just suffering from GAD, that can be treated with meds and/or counseling. Please let me know what you found out after reading this. Best of luck. Howard

I'm afraid of the anxiety and fear. I can't stop my thoughts and I'm getting worse. I also have pain in my back and ribs. Just want to cry. You can't get rid of thoughts.
