I suppose looking back that my obsessive worrying has always been an issue but my life took a turn for the worse some ten months ago following a traumatic event. This led to rapid weight loss, insomnia, fear and panic. My GP was useless and I continued on a downward spiral for weeks. I have been on three anti depressants, other so called anti anxiety drugs and anti histamine to help me sleep. Although I am somewhat calmer now I cannot stop thinking about my condition. From the minute I wake up to going to bed at night I constantly think of how I feel and cannot concentrate on anything else. Song lyrics can run through my mind all day creating more fear. I am scared of virtually everything. I try to get on with my life but everyday seems the same. I just feel ill all day and have this awful feeling in my chest (it is not tightness) which makes me feel like I dont want to live. How can a feeling make you feel this way. I have such innocuous thoughts that make me feel terrible.
Sorry to go on but I'm getting really scared that I will never recover. Has anyone else suffered with a similar scenario and is this Anxiety?
