No life

I feel my life is nearly over sick of this anxiety and suffering everyday. Does anyone else feel so down they just can't keep going. 😎

Hello Dorsey :-)

I have just had a week from hell and still going through it

I already have all my Mental Health issues and now I have been diagnosed with polymyalgia rheumatica which has brought me to my knees and triggered my anxiety of the scale to so yes at the moment I know that feeling of not wanting to carry on but we have to

Anxiety mimics lots of illness symptoms but trust me if there is anything really wrong you would know about it so try and push the feelings to one side , not easy I know but can be done :-)

Take Care x

Hello :-)

I know your Son has been diagnosed with cancer and I cannot imagine what you must be going through , I think well I am almost sure it has triggered health anxiety in you and I have suffered with that and still do but experiencing this I can tell you that you would know if there was something really wrong , you soon see the difference I am in so much pain I am on steroids and even have morphine

I think you have had a fantastic idea to write down all the positives , this anxiety stops us seeing what we achieve but writing it down can shock us just what we do achieve :-)

If you get time let me know what positives you manage , I would love to see them :-) x

Me too, I have convinced myself that my life is coming to an end. I have so much pain and so many symptoms no doctor wants to listen. I've been to my primary, 2 nero's and now a rheumatologist. No one has any answers for me. Primary says FM, and Rheumatologist says "no". I'm deteriorating daily, and have no one to help me. I can't eat, sleep, work or even clean my house. I'm about to lose everything I have and worked for so long.

My back hurts from tailbone to neck,legs and knees hurt,feet are stiff and numb,no energy, now my face is hurting. I can't focus to do anything important. I feel like I'm dying because I'm getting worse everyday. Afraid of going to sleep for fear I will not wake up, and someone not finding me for days. What do people like me do when we can't get help?

Hello Suffering2018 :-)

I am so sorry you are suffering so bad and I relate the fear of going to sleep when you feel so ill

Anxiety can cause many symptoms as it attacks the nerve endings and sometimes can create pain

It feels unacceptable you cannot get any help , if it were me I would be direct with my Doctor and simply say

I cannot go on like this I need help , what can you do to help me ?

After all that is what their job is

I hope you get the help you need :-)

Take Care x

Well I'll say, it's not that I dont want to keep going, I'm just more disgruntled, fed up, disappointed, and tired of going through this and allowing it to keep me in tunnel vision and in so much fear. I do indeed feel down and depressed alot when I am in such a spiral like this. I have recently decided to go with my goal to start up a broadcast on YouTube that basically is another platform to communicate with people who are going through this just like me. I'd like to share my new broadcast endeavor with you as well. It will discuss our fears and what anxiety has done, I will be researching and giving helpful advice and words of encouragement. I just wanted the idea of a broadcast so that people who follow or join me can see my face, see who I am and see me during my journey. So they can feel comfortable to communicate so we all can share our fears and worries. Check it out if you can.

I wish us the best 😊
