I’m new to this forum and just wanted some advice and support really. So here it goes...
I’m 26 with severe asthma. I’ve always dealt with this well and been a happy and confident individual who managed stress well and always looking out for others.
However this All changed a couple of years ago. I started to feel like I wasn’t good enough, doubting myself and every decision I made, feeling guilty over things that I really shouldn’t, Hating the way I look and feel, getting tearful or upset over little things, over thinking to the max and becoming more down. I’ve lost the motivation to do things I really enjoyed before.
I have a happy life, a fiancé I can’t wait to marry, a good job and a loving family but still I feel rubbish about myself.
I have been shielding since March because of my asthma which has made this even worse as I feel I have no friends now as I haven’t seen them in so long (I know this isn’t true but again the constant battle in my head telling me otherwise)
I feel like I’m not worthy of the life I have and will have it all taken away from me.
I used to be such a bubbly person, always having a laugh and supporting others, I just want to find myself again and be happy.
I really don’t want to be on medication for it as I take a lot for my asthma and feel the gp will just say this is the option. I have tried going for walks daily, exercising, eating better and taking vitamins ect
Has anyone felt the same and have any ways of getting through this?xxx
