Anxiety is so dumb -_-

So seriously ive felt disconnected and spaced out since some bad stress in 2014...well my anxiety wasnt bad for a few years even though I was spaced out I just didnt care much about it or worry about it...now since August after a fight, my anxiety seems to have been triggered and now I'm terrified of the off balance heavy head sensation ...like why? Why am I scared of it now? Literally have fear course through me everyday most of the day now I get jolts of fear bc I feel like im just gonna fall out and die!! All day everyday I just see my death I don't feel real i guess....all my tests come back normal. I just dont get how anxiety that I had controlled for so long can just explode out of control all of a sudden...i seriously think I am dying of a terrible disease...but I think in 4 years a terrible disease would have gotten worse right? I dont know anymore...i feel like passing out but i never have!! Im super frustrated and just want my life back...what did it feel like the just get up and enjoy a day? Not worry about my health or feel like im dying...i don't get it. I just want to not feel fear...i want happiness and calmness...just ranting today cause I seriously can't do this much longer 😭😭

I completely understand everything you’re feeling. I’ve spent the day deciding whether to go to the ER or not! Chest pains and a hard time breathing. I can’t remember what 15 years ago felt like. I just know it wasn’t like this!!! Best wishes with your journey! I hope you find something that helps.

Sorry you go through it too! I literally debate daily whether or not I should go to the ER...i know I can't though cause I dont need to...it sucks. Just a few months ago I was feeling ok. I am going to a psychiatrist soon to see if I can get some help. Just cant be like this anymore!! I hope you get relief soon too this is so hard to deal with...

I have felt like you too. My main problem was anxiety about not sleeping which also spilt over into the day. I take 40 mg citrolepam daily which has sorted day time anxiety and lately 200 mg pregabalin/Lyrica which is wonderful and let’s me sleep. I am seeing a counsellor and also self help. Acceptance as per Claire Weekes is the only way.

Oh wow! Well I hope everything is ok. Good luck :) it's great you are getting it checked out

The best advice I can give is to stop trying to get better. The more you try the worse anxiety becomes. So simply just allow the feelings to be. Don't fight them, it sounds difficult, but it works. Trust me. Whatever you're doing with you're anxiety do the complete opposite.

Yes always off balance! It's worse when my anxiety is worse :( I feel like I'm just gonna fall over. Never have though.

Omg I'm sorry to hear! but I'm happy that I'm not alone. I've been freaking out thinking that this is permanent, but I'm going to start using SSRI's to see if it helps. I hope you find something that works too!

Hi friend, I am so sorry that you're going through this pain. Have you been diagnosed with anything bad? I hope not. Have you been participating in any activities that trigger these emotions such as horror films, sad movies or bad music? It's important that you guard your heart from negativity by avoiding things that aren't healthy for you in any way. I don't want you to give up. Your life is valuable to God. We need you here to fulfill your purpose. You have to choose to be joyful and meditate on positive things. I am praying for you to find peace, joy, and restoration in Jesus' Name!
