I am 41 male and for most of my life I have had or suffered from anxiety, at this moment in time I am under a great deal of anxiety, I am alone which does not help, and at present am suffering from gods knows what, I have had IBS type symptoms for over a week now, ranging I cannot eat or drink a thing without rushing to the loo a couple of hours later to have a poo, sorry for being unpleasant but that is the situation at present. Also whether through not eating I have become very depressed, all I can think of is I don't want to die from these symptoms of fear and compulsive thinking about something that I hope is not that serious. I have taken my medication, 1mg of Ativan, my blood pressure medicine and I have got some busopan 10mg which I though might help, and seems to have done nothing. I so worried about this loose bowel thing, as you can imagine I keep thinking I have bowel or colon cancer. I have an appointment at my GP on Tuesday and all I can think of is that they will send me for tests and find that I am dying from something. I recently had a load of blood work done, and that all came back clear. I don't know whether this is related to my anxiety or I am falling foul of my symptoms making my anxiety worse. I really don't know. I think that it helps sometimes to just get out of your head all the strange and worry type thinking, I am hoping that by doing this I will lessen the feeling of despair. It would be nice to hear from anyone over this weekend as I know it is going to be a long one full of this lurching from fear and worry.
