Hi, just joined today. I was told I had depression and anxiety. I have been having these funny turns recently where I start to feel like I am going to be sick, light-headed, shaking like the floor is vibrating and at the end of it I feel like I have lost/forgotten the last 10-15 minutes. Don’t know if this is anything to do with my anxiety or something completely different?

Welcome old bean, Anxiety is a tricky devil. It can make you doubt yourself, in fact it is a liar. I have had it and recovered from it. I used meds and therapy and faced it down. At first I couldn't do anything because I was so afraid. I believed it could hurt me. With small steps I found out I could walk through that fire and come out the other side stronger. Each day I would do one thing I was afraid of and I would keep at it till I wasn't afraid . Then off to the next fear...eventually you stop being afraid. It takes time and determination . If you have been checked out by your Doctor then believe him , as I said you cannot trust anxiety. Pam
