Hello All.... Am having arealy bad night. My nerves are just so bad...As an example, my son is out tonight and I keep sitting here thinking of all the things that could happen to him. I know this sounds insane but this is how it has been for last few days. I have upped my meds but it does not seem to be helping. I am so afraid of having problems breathing but yet I am smoking more than ever, I know none of this makes any sense but just needed to vent.

Oh I am so sorry I wasnt on last night to give you some good vibes. Been there. My son is 18 and any time he goes out I worry about "the call" from the police or hospital.
I used to smoke and I always felt like I would die from it, so I gave it up. Now the panic is much beter!
How are you now?

Feel free to vent anytime sodell!! I dont have any kids but i can relate to the worrying! My mom and i are very close and when she goes out of town or something i worry about her constantly and my husband too, it's almost like it becomes an obsession and i cant stop worrying no matter how hard i try! It is normal to worry about the people you love but dont let it worry you to the point where it decreases your quality of life! Especially if nothing has really happened yet! And no you dont sound insane! You sound like a normal person dealing with some emotional problems like everyone else! NO one is here to judge you! And everything you said makes perectly good sense to me except for worry about the breathing problems but still smoking.(smile) Thats a nasty habit (no offense) and i'm sure that can add to your breathing problems. I've never been a smoker but i know any habit is hard to break because i have some bad habits that i've been trying to break for years! I hope your son made it home ok and i hope you are ok!!! GOOD LUCK!!!

Ha, Panike, I worry about my mom too(she drives with one hand on the horn...one of those!)
We never cease to find something to worry about. Then we would worry about not worrying!

Your'e right because when i get those rare days that i dont have anything to worry about i feel so crazy!! Then i start wondering why am i so happy today and not worrying about anything! Thats a shame when you are so use to feeling crappy that when you feel good you dont understand!

Hi all! Thanks  for the words, it helps so much just to put down what I am feeling.
Yes he made it home just fine. I am on xanax and paxil have been on the xanax for years.
Smoking is a terrible addiction and I have done it all to stop and spent lots of money on stuff and here I sit smoking one!!!! Hope all has a great anxiety free weekend
