anxiety taking over

Hi guys

I thought I was feeling a little bit better lately but with recent problem @work my anxiety took over again...I got my self in a problem bigger then me..but I witnessed something and I had to report it for moral reasons..I suppose I didn t fully understand what I had to go through after the report...lots of stress,turmoil of emotions,not peace of mind even though I m still sure I have done the right thing and I would do it again if I have to.but my life at the moment is upside down..I feel nauseous all the time and dizzy and constantly worried about everything and everybody.Is this the price to pay to have some justice?maybe.surely a person like me doesn t need added stress to my daily intake...I love my job and after few months of recovery I found a job and life looked brighter but with this headache now I m not sure...will I go through it?I hope so.I had few crisis in my life and I always came back...

  • Hi Anne

    I kept this secret with me for a week and I found it difficult to speak to somebody about what I ve seen..I found difficult to talk even with my close family..I felt alone and I was worried that people wouldn't believe me.I was swimming in the middle of a ocean bymyself.U re right I should come here and let the steam out more often..I driving my family mad with my worries.You know with GAD people is always thinking about the same thing over and over again..well that s what is happening to me and I m sick of it!!!Thank you for your words it means a lot to me

    Love

  • This sounds familiar to me. i have done/ said something for justice and ended being the one who feel the stress, feeling guilty and all sorts. I think you will go over this, you.ve done the right thing.

  • Thank you Matosh for u re post ..it is stressfull indeed.Somebody of my family asked me if after this experience I would do it again and I say yes..I hope it will be worth it!

    Love

  • Hi Train,

    One of the more annoying side effects of anxiety is the way in which it makes you question everything.

    You know what you saw and you know you had to pass it on. That's your duty and you know it's the right thing. Not nice at all but something you had to do. Then along comes anxiety and suddenly you doubt yourself; have I done the right things, should I have done something else, what if, what if???!!! Your mind is in turmoil and anxiety is having a field day.

    I know, love, because I'm exactly the same: driving myself mad over decisions that in my heart I know were right in the first place.

    The only thing I came suggest is that you try to recognise it as the voice of anxiety and then use your acceptance techniques to acknowledge but not engage with the thoughts. It takes practise but it does work.

    Best Wishes,

    Lizard.xxx
