No there are no reports that people have ever died from anxiety. What makes you think this ??

I'm just worried that I might die

You won’t die the symptoms of anxiety are horrible. But what in particular make you think you are going to die

Just heart stopping from stress

It's. Not the anxiety itself, the stress as a result from the anxiety causes the death

They symptoms that’s your a experiencing are perfectly normal for stress/anxiety. I’m currently having cognitive therapy and my pwp informed me at my last session that our body goes into “fight or flight” mode and the symptoms that we feel as our body’s preparing to either fight or run part of the blood flow to our brain and organs is redirected to our muscles so we can fight or run and that causes the symptoms. But the symptoms should be gone after 45 minutes as our adrenaline runs out. I found this really helpful to know that what I feel is normal I hope it helps you to

Today I decided to go on meds aa nothing seemed to help :(

No death certificate exists where anxiety is given as the cause of death. But you can die a hundred times every day if you allow anxiety to be your master.

Good luck with the meds!

Try a group meeting to talk to others. I went to AA when I needed help with that kind of thing but it was spiritual too. Try and help yourself. Take a step outside and do one thing at a time.

I don't believe so. Sometimes the more we try NOT to worry the worse it is. It is part of life. Worry on!!!!! One day at a time. Make a list of what you can fix and take it from there and pray about it or journal it. Sometimes worry is just good concern and that's great! The world makes too big of a thing about worry. It is wired in us. WHo would not worry about their child who is ill? WHo would not worry about having enough money? NO ONE! So worry on and feel happy.

Worry and anxiety are two different things when we worry the reason is logical when we have anxiety attacks it’s our brain and body defending us against danger that isn’t there as an anxiety sufferer my self I find that quite offensive it was as simple as just stop trying to stop worrying or being anxious I would have done that a long long time ago but it’s not that easy for some people and us some people have to have therapy to even just ease the anxiety. If only shit were that simple

actually I find this a helpful approach - often I think perhaps some panic attacks are caused by repressed subconscious worrying. Therefore if we face worries head on, and try to pinpoint problems in life that may be causing anxiety, perhaps it might reassure our subconsciousness? Not the case for everyone..just a thought

It's weird that my anxiety is my thoughts. I keep thinking I'm gonna die sothat brings attacks

Reply

When I get that, I just try to think logically and realise I'm no more likely to today than any other

My doctor said Not from the anxiety itself, but what the anxiety does to your body, the heart, diabetes etc

Sad but true! Good reply

Peace!

Anxiety or not all will die sooner or later , if not anxiety , then it will be sonething else to kill us . the more we confront this and live our lives and stop worrying about things beyond our control the more we can live life easily

We're All guaranteed death, in what way? no one knows? I heard about a woman who just went outside to get a pacifier for her son from her car and was shot and killed. I've been about a week without anxiety I believe from pray and decided I was going to live one day at a time...so far so good?

ignorance is a blessing in these cases , i highly doubt that if we knew our end , we wouldnt be able to live . See animals also have to die , but i dont believe that any of them fears death, maybe they don't even know about it nor think.

Its so hard to live like this thinking about I'm might die now

That's one thing I started doing..bible and pray. Please tell me what have you done so far

Danielle17, maybe you are scared, I am sorry for that. But then you just need not to read such posts.

I for one am not scared. I have had these thoughts in the past and have worked through them. I would say I did that through reading and educating myself on anxiety and when even logic did not change my thinking the kindness of others loving me and sharing a kind word! That is what this place is all about! We are a village who attempts to care for one another. I am sorry you must not get that feeling here. Is there something we can do to help meet your needs today?

Thank you for the support. There are lots of mean people.

I'm so glad you have recovered from this horrible anxiety

I still battle anxiety, just not the “I am dying any second,” type anymore. It morphed to other things😂😂😂

Shame on you Danielle17, everyone is allowed to voice their fears here, that's how we help one another. If you don't like a post read no further, it's not compulsory.

I know right !! It drives me insane . Depending how bad is my anxiety for the day, reflects my bloody thoughts 💭 😡

Reply

Mine been so bad for the past 3 days feeling like I'm gonna go crazy

Reply

Hi Amytat!! I went through the same thing for about 6 months. I can tell you it does it better and those thoughts was eventually fade away.. I tried meds/ counseling/etc. It didn’t work for me. I realized every day I would think I’m going to die or something bad is going to happen but it never does.. I went to every doctor and there was no signs that I would die.. just all in my head and once I realized that. I’ve been in a much better space. I pray it gets better for you.. You will not die from this and you will overcome those thoughts.

Reply

Thank you so much for the support. I have done too gone to many docs and too many therapists none helped but I started taking lexapro aa I was going insain. Now the symptoms are worst and I'm in such a dark place worrying about going mentally crazy

Reply

That’s what the meds did too me.. had me feeling worse.. I went with an organic approach.. I found some things for the herbs store and teas that calmed down my anxiety. Also soothing music.. try taking vitamin B. That was a big help.. you just gotta figure out with helps keeps you calm and realize that it’s just a mind thing.. nothing more

Amy, praying, praying and praying, I have no one to talk too, they want me to get over it. And I'm living it day to day, telling myself I'm not guaranteed tomorrow. So that frees me up from worrying about later. I still have some anxiousness through that it might come back? Try to distract myself. Keep in touch

Of course nobody knows how their going to die unless you Kill your self.

I'm trying to take it one day at a time because I don't know when my last day is. So I don't worry about death anymore.
