Hi everyone, so my anxiety has been so intense the last couple of days, I have been convinced I'm going to black out on a number of occasions and been so panick struck by it that's it's took my breath away and im left feeling like I can't breath :( its even been there whilst iv been with other people which as a rule doesn't happen as often for me, I'm normally better when I'm with others but the last few days I haven't been! Does anyone else sit there whilst ther having these intense thoughts and feelings and feel unable to speak, like you wanna shout out how panicked you are but yoou don't want to look stupid in front of people? I feel sometimes like its all inside, gettin more and more intense and I can't say what's happening !!! X

  • Hi, i had to go and see an occupational health doctor the other day and he has told me my emotional state has deteriorated and have become more depressed!....anxiety and depression come hand in hand im affraid, i really have a wonderful life,i cannot understand why i feel the way i do,there must be an imbalance somewhere but i just need to find out what it is. Ive been off work a while now and no1 contacts me and my friends have stopped contacting me and i feel so lonely. I feel over my lifetime a lot of people have let me down, but i never talk to people about it because i just get told im stupid and its all in my head.....people think im crazy. I now feel that im giving in to this anxiety and its taking over me therefore letting myself and my family down! I cant bare the thought of my children growing up with a mum whos like this,and i wonder if it will affect them later in life!

  • hi anderson hope you have a good holiday get plenty of rest put all your worries behind you for a week x

  • Sleep is important it gives the body time to reboot itself- however throughout the day there are rhythms that we should all be aware of ultradian these occur every 90-120 minutes when you will begin to feel tired and have difficulty concentrating Take a 20 minute rest this helps. With regard to the fear of losing breath look towards mindfulness and breathing exercises they will help you relax because when you stress you hold your breath
