Sorry your feeling so down. I am right here with you.

I just wanted to tell you to NEVER be ashamed of this. Do you have a close family member or friend you can confide in? It helps to have someone around that you can talk with.

Many people with anxiety..including myself....are extremely sensitive to our bodies. We feel every twinge of pain that the non anxiety sufferer would not feel or they would just let it pass by.

Have you thought about some sort of therapy to help you through this?

Please remember it is nothing to be ashamed of. People have many diseases and disorders...diabetes, heart problems etc....they don't have any reason to be ashamed and neither do you.

Peaceful wishes to you and know that your not alone...kitkat

I am sure others will be along soon to help you out. This forum is a great place to come and share your feelings.

Maybe your family just doesn't understand it. People who have never gone through it really have no idea how dreadful it is.

Can you sit down with your hubby or sister and have a heart to heart talk with them?

Be well, kitkat

P.S. I will be offline for awhile so don't think I don't want to talk to you. Others with chime in soon for ya.

Hi,I did talk to my husband yesterday,and I was crying about it.He did not understand it and he just went into another room and got mad at me.My sister always tells me that I will be alright and since i got an ekg in july nothing is wrong with me and I just need to have faith and I will be okay.But thats not good enough.So I just keep quiet about.Yesterday was hard for me.I keep crying because I dont like it at all.I just need some other support somewhere like here,but i dont want to keep complaining.I am a strong person and always felt like i can get through anything.I been through alot in my life.Like loosing my mom in 01 and all sorts of things but this is something that is so hard for me.It is dreadful....thanks my new friend...I will be logging off but will checking in..

I know exactly how you feel. My family seems to blow off my concerns quite frequently. I know they don't mean to seem insensitive but that is the way I perceive it. It is a lonely feeling, especially when you think no one really "gets" it. I just keep trying to explain to all of them that what I have is REAL. You are not alone and I for one, know exactly what you're going through. Sometimes it is good to just have a good cry too. You are NOT alone.

Hey there, I am sorry you are feeling so anxious and I know how awful that feels. For me as much as I hate it I sometimes have to let the anxiety just play out, let the tears come and then have a tough talk with myself that I am the only one who can control my feelings so I best get it done. I have a 27 year history of anxiety and depression.




I feel we often waste way too much of our time and energy focusing on what we don't like, what we're worried about, or what we think needs to be fixed, changed, or enhanced.

I suspect there are great things happening in your life and around you all the time.

Celebrate the good stuff around you , in others, and believe that you will be OK.

Coming here and sharing your feelings is a good way to get some of your anxiety out. Talking about it and sharing it is a good thing. You are right, our familie may get tired of our anxiety but that does not mean they stop loving us.

Gentle hugs to you,

Kitt

Hi PinkMelody. I have been suffering with Anxiety for a very long time but has become so much worse in the past few months....I totally know how you are feeling. At times it is so much easier when the husband or anyone else asks "are you doing ok" to just tell them yes and bury the pain... I know when I have actually been completely honest, it is so much more draining on me to know I have to explain everything and you get the stare becuase they honestly cannot relate to anything we are feeling. I have been checking in with myself so much lately that I have this constant film that everything filters through. It becomes exhausting. I am so short fused because my brain is not relaxed. It is so tense all day long that the littlest things will set me off. Like I read in one of the above posts, it is so true that those of us that suffer anxiety are so much more tunned into the smallest symptoms. I woke up feeling tight in my chest and now suffering all day from the symptom! I hope you are doing well. It feels so much better to be able to share with people that understand and don't think you are crazy! Take care ~Blessings~

Hi PinkMelody.

I can definitely relate to the way you feel. I have my nights when I literally think I have lost it and I want to go to the ER, too. I also cannot afford therapy right now, because of no hours at work, and my dads pay getting cut in half recently. I am off and on logging into healingwell recently, as my anxiety has been off and on, but I would love to talk anytime I can. :) I really hope you find some support here. It has helped me out alot. Also, if you can get the book When Panic Attacks by David Burns, I think you could find some support in his writing. Also, HealingWell offers alot of great links and free online CBT.

Hang in there you are not alone!! Water has healing powers too its complicated but it has been studied. Talking on here if no one around you understands can be a big help I'm sure. Sometimes when im feeling paniky and edgy, I take some deep breaths, go to the bathroom and run some cold water. Cup your hands under the flow and think of good things, and things that make you happy; pets, loved ones, fond memories. Put those feelings into the water, and cup it onto your face 3 times. Dab a bit of it off and let it evaporate off your face as you go about doing whatever it is in your house or at work. You gotta believe, but it does help!

Hi pinklady,

Just checking on you. I hope your anxiety has eased a bit.

I am starting CBT therapy this week. Just a thought but maybe it would help you too.

I will let you know how it goes.

Blessings to you....kitkat

CBT is a form of therapy that is supposed to change your way of thinking. For instance, when I get a sharp chest pain I automatically think I am having a heart attack. It is supposed to help conquer your negative thinking.

I know others on here use a free website for it but I think I would do better face to face with someone.

I bet others can explain it to you better.

Glad your anxiety eased up a bit. It's such a terrible thing to deal with. I pray everyday that it will just go away. I did start doing some on line meditation. I just googled audio meditation and a few free ones came up. I just went through some of them until I found one I liked. I do it in the morning and in the evening. It gives me a sense of peace for a short while.

Peace to you, kitkat

Glad to hear you're feeling at least a little better. The rough spells can be pretty hard.

Very, very rarely is my breathing affected by anxiety, but I think I'm one of the exceptions to the rule on that one.

I thought I took my site out of my signature.
