Anxiety is too much..

danimariea1 profile image

I feel like I am losing my mind. I am so tired of just living, and feeling so anxious and so awful all the time. My medicine isn't working, I am constantly anxious, not a second of the day where I feel peace. I wake up in the middle of the night and feel anxious and can''t sleep. I am so tired of feeling this way. I am paranoid about crazy things. I am at a total loss. I don't know what else to do. If this is how I am going to feel my whole life, I can't do it.

I'm really sorry you're condition is not good,or getting better. But hang in there, what kind of meds are you on, and for how long.

I am taking buspirone for anxiety, and I swear its getting worse and worse. I have been on it for about 6 months.

How much buspirone are you on? I take 15 mg twice a day and I don't think it's working for me either. I'm sorry you're feeling so bad, but try to remember you're safe and you're not alone. (:

I am on 10 mg twice a day, yeah not working for me haha. Thank you, I always try to remind myself that I am safe.

I'm sorry you have to feel like that, please don't let go of life, I feel the same way in my head, body, nerves. The way my so called doctor put me on Zoloft was absolutely, not like a doctor should be, he didn't tell me anything about the medication, actually it's poison. Anytime you need to discuss something, I'll be here trying to get help myself. I'm not sure if it's for you or not, feeling like you do though, seriously try cannabis, it really works, and it's natural. Talk to you soon.

Funny you say cannabis, I was going to try CBD oil. I don't think that the THC would sit right with me because of my anxiety, just not in the right frame of mind, but I will defiantly look into CBD! (:

Actually you'd be surprised, just make sure and get indica, works like an antidepressant should!! And it helps you sleep, just don't buy it very strong. Anyway, good luck with your choice, whatever it is. I just brought it up since it is very good thing to think about, just remember ( indica ).

Thank you, I will defiantly look into this!

I hope everything works out for you, you'll of course have to get used to it, it can actually adjust the feeling of your medication ( if you decide to keep taking it) I would suggest that you ween off the man made drug, antidepressant, and just start lightly and just use it as needed, when you get depressed our feel a little anxiety, but I'm not suggesting that you do both at the same time. Hope I could help. By the way, I don't use drugs, alcohol or even cigarettes, and I you shouldn't do alcohol or drugs because they act as a depressant, not like an antidepressant. Please be safe. I'm talking about the antidepressant and cannabis, don't do both at once, even though it's not going to hurt you, it's an easier way to get used to cannabis. ( Separately )

And my own neurologist put me on Zoloft, I wasn't having any problems with my seizures till now, and I feel like sueing him. I feel like I did when I was in my teens, where I have to start hoping I'm not going to have a seizure, or if I am . Yeah life is going lousy for me, but I'm not going to let go of life, we only live once, I guess suffering or not. I just always try to remember about what Jesus Christ did for us and our sins, so even though life sucks right now, it'll get better. Hopefully in our life times.

Ive been feeling dizzy since i woke up im freaked out,i know how u feel its horrible and ive had to go off sick from work which makes it worse

Wow I feel like I wrote this post because you have just described my life :( I only started having anxiety a year ago and already I feel so down.

I miss the old me.

I feel like I worry about everything now, I won’t even leave the house on my own anymore and I’m worried about meeting friends incase I have an attack while out with them.

It’s ruining my life. I honestly don’t want to live a life like this.

I am sorry you are feeling this way as well... I wouldn't wish this on my worst enemy. I feel like I'm in prison within my own mind. I have always had anxiety, but it has been progressively worsening for a while now, and I feel like I am at my all time peak of anxiety. I feel like I don't want to get out of bed in the morning, like I have no more motivation do just do anything anymore. I am constantly paranoid about the weirdest things, and like I said above, I feel like I am losing my mind. I feel so alone and just at a loss.

I am here for you if you ever need to talk, I know how it feels.

Sounds like me!!

Actually I have to be honest, it sounds like as far as anxiety and major depression, that's not my serious condition like probably a lot of you are, so even when I say anything about antidepressants, I guess I'm mainly talking about my problem with feeling depressed sometimes, alot of anger for no reason. I still understand when someone seriously needs it, but not like a crutch.

Feelin ok lately changed my diet my head felt clear its like a miracle! Slipped the past week and feel crap again so diet makes a dramatic impact on mental health
