Don’t even care anymore 🙅🏻‍♀️

I’m giving up Always Fighting everyday with my self. Anxiety isn’t going to go away for me. I’ve tried everything. From Meditations,Therapy,Medications,self talk, group therapy etc you name it I’ve been on 5 Different medications and NONE OF THEM HELPED ME OVERCOME ANXIETY!!!!!!! Besides give me horrible Withdrawals 😡 I woke up this morning with my heart POUNDING SO HARD I literally felt it In my throat and it was like if it wanted to stop it wasn’t a normal feeling. Told my family they wanted me to go to the hospital but I can’t! My husband took the only car we freaking have to go to work and Now I’m home thinking I have a heart issue. I’ve had too many palpitations and shoulder pain and upper back pain. Shortness of breath as well.. all signs of Heart attack yes I know... I’m 22 weeks pregnant and I just can’t take it anymore I don’t care anymore I just can’t live like this!!!!!!!!!!

I think this will help - when you feel worked up take a deep breath then strain your abdominal muscles like you do when wanna poo. Strain your other body muscles for 8 secs while holding your breath then breathe out through your mouth. Hope this helps :=)

Coming from someone who has gone to the cardiologist countless times for pretty much every uncomfortable physical symptom including all you've mentioned. I can say that it's likely the obvious culprit ANXIETY.

I know what you're going through. I have my moments when I loose hope and go into a fit of rage. Wanting to 'give up' and as anxiety sufferers we know what that really means. The reality of it is no matter how much you feel like giving up the anxiety won't let you. Because it's there everyday.

That's why we can let it win. I myself refuse to believe this is permanent and feel that there is a solution.

Check this link out that i will provide. Remember anxiety is just a state of mind. Also given that you're pregnant I'd advise you to get yourself and the baby checked. Elevated levels of stress on your body can be harmful.

Remember the key is to not fight the anxiety because it will intensify and feed off of your resistance. You need to let it be/accept it and control your behavior. The more you overreact the more you're feeding these thoughts, emotions and memories into your subconscious mind. Then the cycle repeats.

This is the link. Please check this out when you're able. I've been applying this to my life. It's not easy but it takes extreme practice and commitment. Also look up the study of neuroplasticity (retraining your brain). And meditate.

Ok cool. Please check out the link and look up neuroplasticity for anxiety. It'll help you see anxiety in a different way.

I’m not sure if you have know, but being pregnant can intensify your anxiety. Your pregnant and your hormones are going crazy right now.! My hormones trigger my anxiety to be extremely high. Find things do physically do when you feel like that. Go for a walk with a neighbor or a friend. I don’t care how cold it is. If it’s not raining just do it. It helps me so much, and walking with someone else helps take your mind off of the racing heart and thoughts. Good luck
