Anyone else forgot that other illnesses exist

So woke up this morning and first thing on my mind is corona, full on anxiety cant concentrate or anything, I feel like my life’s been taken over by this, like if someone coughs omg they’ve got it, I’ve got it, I can’t think oh it’s a chest infection or anything like that, I’m driving myself mad, scared, nearly in tears really worrying ☹️

Hello :-)

I know what you are saying , I think of nothing else , I dread the Winter as I fear this will get worse as well as when we are just catching normal viruses how we will react and it has made my HA in general so much worse

You are not alone feeling this way

Take Care x

Im really struggling at the moment , worse I have ever been but I am waiting and hoping it will pass even though it feels frightening while you are x

dizzychar in reply to lulu-1

It really does, I freak out and everything, can’t settle pace about, when it does pass I almost feel silly like why go off like you did, but I do it again, over and over 🙄 hope you are feeling better, I’m waiting for telephone therapy at the moment; I’ve had cbt and Counselling many times before though, try and do sometime nice for yourself? Bath nails etc cheer yourself up maybe x

I know what you are saying :-)

I have been lucky well in a way and MH have got me funding to have 3 hours a week for a whole year of support of my choice , I can even choose the person as well , but like everything they have the funding now we are just waiting , it is the waiting bit that gets to me to be honest

I have never had any help though and suffered more years than I can remember from been a child so this help when it comes has been a long time coming , just hope it works they keep telling me it will so fingers crossed :-)

Hope yours works and helps you to and happens soon :-) x

Thank you, I feel it helps a little but I still end up kind of back to square one in the end, I’m no where near as bad as I used to be but still bad with it if that makes sense

Hope it helps you x

Yes , it is sad but I tried :-) x

The media is trying to scare everyone. I don’t even watch the news anymore. Sometimes I keep up with what is going on on the news channels on my phone. I had to stop because it was terrifying me also. It’s def a very real thing, but the fear of it is being blown up a lot. If you are cautious and wear your mask, distance yourself , wash your hands and keep hand sanitizer with you in case you touch public things, you should be safe.

This is such a crazy world we live in. I feel like I’m in the twilight zone or something.

I try not to listen to it If I’m honest, but I can’t help reading if I’m on social media ☹️ I’ve been doing the whole hand washing and carrying sanitizer, I’m struggling with the mask, I have asthma along with panic and anxiety so I can’t really wear it I feel like I can’t breathe x

Pumpkin14 in reply to dizzychar

Yeah, same here... Social media. I hate the masks too. It's so hard for me to work with them. I'm on my feet moving all day and I'm sweating and on the verge of passing out and feeling sick to my stomach..!

dizzychar in reply to Pumpkin14

They are awful, I’m dreading it tbh, I can imagine ☹️ I couldn’t wear it all day x

Seems there are a lot of us feeling this way. I started taking 3mg of melatonin to help me get to sleep. That will work for a few hours & then my eyes pop back open and before I even know I'm awake, the worry about this virus and everything else is already going full steam. It's exhausting. I haven't been on social media in over a week. I miss my friends but I can't handle the constant bad news. Take care.

☹️ hope you manage to get a better night soon. It’s all the conflicting things too that annoy me, maybe meet up with a friend or something instead? I’m quite luck my best friend is on the same road so I can go to her if I need to whenever I want

Take care ☺️
