Hi guys, I have been suffering with anxiety and depression again since early feb I’m on 30mg of fluoxetine and 120mg of propanolol and finally it all seems to be helping and I’m feeling loads better. I’m also having cbt and feeling good, however because one of my

Main symptoms was pain in upper right side and being sick docs had ordered an ultrasound just to rule out my gallbladder I have finally got my letter and my scan is next Tuesday however I can feel the anxiety creeping in worrying about what they may find, last time this happened the sonographer was lovely I explained why I was there and my anxiety and he actually told me he couldn’t see any gallstones or anything but I know it’s not normal to be told, I don’t know why I’m posting to be honest I think I’m just after some coping techniques as I don’t want to go backwards my pain is really reduced and I have been diagnosed with possible ibs my sickness is also gone but the thought of this scan keeps sending me in waves of panic

Anxiety sucks. I’m here. I have general health anxiety so I freak about health stuff.

Do you take probiotic ? Helps with ibs issues btw.

Thank you, I know it was literally taking over my life I’m starting to conquer it but man it’s hard! I’ve always suffered with depression on an off for the last 6 years but anxiety is completely new to me and I just never realised how powerful it can be! Yes I have been told I’m bordering on health anxiety too it’s just the worst and most people around you just don’t understand it either which doesn’t help! And yes thank you I have started taking some probiotic for around a week now ans it does seem to be helping so I’m hoping by next week I’ll have just rationalised that I’m gonna be ok lol xx

It takes time. But it will help a lot. Having anxiety does play around with the symptoms and our body does feel it.

Anxiety makes things confusing when tryna find out body issues because it is too busy making us feel sick. Best to do tests and rule out stuff.

Lol it did take until my mental health was the worst it’s been to confront it all but I’m glad I have like my grandad says at least you have answers whatever they are then you can deal with it and not knowing is worse especially when you have health anxiety you can go down such a rabbit hole and it just makes everything worse lol x

I love stories about people choosing the healthy option in life.

I been down many paths and I always try to find my way. I tend to find narrow and bumpy paths. I am a survivor of many obstacles and things.

I won’t throw the towel in yet.

You seem to be smashing it! Life is never easy but we will get there, I have a 7 year old and I just didn’t want her growing up thinking that is how women are treated, me and her used to be inseparable however the last year orTwo has broken bits of that off so I need to get through this for her, I will never bad mouth her dad in front of her but I hope

One day she realises what he’s like but it’s not

For

Me to say,!

That makes you a good girl. Because her dad is in her hahaha. And at least you have a beautiful gift from the relationship.

Abusive people clearly need help and it’s horrible. But that’s why I learned to say I love you. But. I love me more.
