It sounds like you might need a break. If things are starting to get on top of you, perhaps there is something that your doctor can do for you? Is a weekend break an option for you? A quiet weekend by yourself (or with a partner) could be just what 'the doctor ordered' (Pardon the pun!) to clear your head maybe?

I hope things start to improve for you, let us know how you get on

mystruggle is right. im in a bad state right now, but i rememeber how it is to get better though and look back and think to myself "man i was really messed up". right now i just cant seem to get over that hurdle. it is tough and it does seem like sometimes your going insane and just cant take it. my dr. gave me zanax for times when i cant deal with it, they really do help. you should ask for something that will help you a bit. like i said i know it is tough and it does seem like things arent getting better, i cant wait till im a t that point where i can look back AGAIN and say man i thought it was never going to get better, like i said im in a rough slump right now also. stick in there and keep rememebring that your not alone, i find reading these posts from other like me really helps me out when im bad like this. it makes me rememebr im not insane and i dont have some "unknown disease". if you can try and find something that can help you take your mind off things, i know its easier said than done, but when you are contantlly thinking about your physical symptoms you only make yourself worse. it kinda pisses me off when people say that to me, or when my dr. says "just dont think about negative things, try and relax" i feel like saying "IF IT WAS THAT EASY I WOULDNT BE THIS WAY". but like i said "try". Francis

You say "I been sittin here for 3 days"... Rolling over and over in bad thoughts won't get you anywhere. Talk about it to someone close, or to the medical staff. You are not alone going through this. And everyone who's been through it has gotten out. You are human like all of us, so don't be afraid, you are no exception. You will get better, even if it seems too tough or impossible, it isn't. Uncontrolled fear does make one feel weak powerless and numb. I know that when I was deep in, I kept thinking I should write a will, trash all my personal stuff, because I thought I'd go crazy and never come back. But here I am now, calm as a sheep, everything came back together. It always does trust me. Hang in there, take a hot bath, take a walk, go see a sports game, hang with friends, talk about it, even if you're not hungry eat, if the things you used to do don't make any sense to you anymore do em anyway, get good night sleep. And most important if you can put the spot on the tangible things in your life that could stress you up, try to fix em. Try not to give too much importance to the things that can wait. If you have stuff that has to be done, don't be afraid to mess some of it up, the world can wait. Get out in the sun if you can.

This might not be the best advice in the world, but it worked for me: don't sit around staring at your fear, do things you like or used to like, change your mind. When you'll feel better you'll be in better shape to think about all that's bothering you. And talk about it. At first I was ashamed to feel like this, but the more I talked about it the more I realised most people went through this, and it's a normal sign that says maybe there are things that ought to change in your life.

I'm no therapist, I just hope I can help. Just remember, you'll get better. Tough times always end.

I agree that if you feel you need to call and go into hospital then do so ..especially with having these " bad thoughts"

Or you can do what others have suggessted try to do stuff to keep mind off of this slump you are in

Do you do any self help techniques at all
They should help as wellas prolly asking for a short term fast acting med to get you thru

Know you are not alone and we are here for you
Please let us know how it is going

Yep, what you have to do is make it a priority to get better. Put everything else on hold. Find a competent doctor who will refer you to a psychiatrist. If you can't get into see a psychiatrist soon, see about checking yourself into a facility where you can see one immediately. You probably won't be there long. Just doing SOMETHING about the problem will give you a boost (it's actually an accomplishment), and they can determine what med will help you calm down.

When you're calmed down and can think more objectively about yourself, you can then work on the root of your problem, which is likely psychological.

It may get a little better by itself, but then it'll just get worse again. If you want to beat it you'll have to be proactive.

hi potluck, hope you are feeling better today. Is the dizziness 24 /7 or does it come and go. Is this what is scareing you? the dizziness, the thoughts of something being real wrong? I get  like that. I have had bad dizziness, and i have sinus/allergy problems. do you? maybe could be? I get those what ifs in my head. thoughts of something being real wrong in my head and thats when the anxiety comes in, i was real bad with anxiety these past months since september 2006, thought i would never live through it, but amazingly i did, and so will you. My struggle is right we look back and say wow, thought it would never end. there are good, okay and bad days. I havent had a Great day yet, but still have hope that one day i can be the same again, and i hope the same for you and everyone here. This is a great site to talk to everyone and learn from oneanother.Thank God for this site. Question: just a suggestion, if you have insurance or can afford it, why dont you get an mri, if you have not had one yet. maybe this can help you with some releif to make sure nothing major is going on in your head physically. Well I hope everyone here has helped you out. hope you a wonderful day. Take care and God Bless yeah

You will be in my prayers.

I don't know if this will help you or not, but I will tell you my experience. Once I felt dizzy in the grocery store. When I started thinking about it, I got dizzy in a restaurant. Then I couldn't go in the grocery store for about 3-4 months.

Please keep us posted. We care.

God bless.

  Hi POtluck

  I'm sorry that you are going though all this right now but thing do get better and I see that you like building drag cars I myself like building 4x4's and doing alot of 4wheeling, some day I want to build a all tube type 4wheeler that can really flex for rock climbing and for really getting into the back country here right now I got a 90's model chevy truck that I cut out all the front suspenion (sp) and put in a dana 60 under it with leafs and a 60 in the rear but I'm looking for a gm 14 bolt for the rear and put in 5:33's gears for more low end power but right now I'm running 4:11's with 40" tires by pro-comp the flex is good but I would like to get more out of it, but I like the ride right now and I got to keep on the road so thats why I'm thinking about a tube type wheeler with link suspenion in the front and rear with coils and a t dubler for even more low end speed and a set of 44's hogs maybe we can share some info on this and you could tell me about how you make your drag cars.
