Well, where do I start? I am going through constant anxiety, feeling sick every day to the point where I feel like I am going to throw up but I never do, chest pains because with this I have trouble breathing properly which causes me to panic, I get weakness in the knees, sweating, hot flushes, it has made me depressed and I am crying all day everyday which gives me headaches. My problem is, I just cannot accept anxiety is doing this to me! I really really can't, I had blood tests done and they can back okay and that it is a psychological thing and that's what started the depression off, because I felt as if I was going mad because I thought and still think there is something medically wrong with me and I'm so scared that it is getting worse and I am going to die! My mum is finding it very hard as well but keeps trying to reassure me that there is nothing medically wrong, my worse thing is the sickness, as I am not good with sick at all it just makes me worse, my mum tries to say to me that I have been going through this for the past 3 months and I have not been physically sick and I am not going to be sick, and then in return I say yes, but I get so close to being sick that is why I can never be sure that I am not going to be. I literally cannot accept it is anxiety (What I am going through is making me depressed and crying all day everyday) making me feel so ill as I am so convinced and so sure that there is something medically wrong with me, it's like I am pushing anxiety to the side and every night am trying to find what other things could be wrong and end up diagnosing myself with this and that and it makes me worse but I cannot stop it. I'm not going out, I haven't been out of my village in two weeks, I'm not going to college, not seeing anyone, my boyfriend of 2.5 years is finding it hard but is being amazing even though we aren't seeing each other much because of this. I feel like I don't know what is going on with my body and I don't know what to do. I feel so sick and it just comes on like a sudden rush of it and it scares the hell out of me because I feel like I don't know what is going on. Everytime I burp my brain has gone into feeling sick constantly so I automatically feel like I am going throw up . I'm only 16 and I should be enjoying life. I am on my 5th day of anti-depressants and I am starting therapy soon, but because I don't believe anxiety is doing this to me, I don';t see how any of this will help/work because I am convinced there is something wrong. Any advice or anyone like me?
