Hey Every1,
I think im begginning to slip on down  the anxiety path again after nearly 7 months of not taking meds im thinking bout starting thm again.
Im under alot of stress im not doing well at work, felt like crying today, have random and embarassing health issue which im plucking up the courage to go to doc's about and all the time i can feel the anxiety and stress growing.
I have never really suffered with health anxiety, but lately i have been having obcessive thoughts about what happens after we die. I actually having near panic attacks about whether i will have a panic attack in the last moments of my life.
I guess the question for me to answer now is how far do i let things slip before i say its time to start taking meds. Im not having anxiety attacks, i am having obcessive thoughts tho. Im not sleeping v.well at all. I think mayb now is not the rite to start taking meds and i should wait to see if things get better or get worse. Im hoping the anxiety issues will clear up as things in my life get better.
Oh jus moved back in with my parents, cheap rent again  smilewinkgrin

Hi Badfish
Sorry to hear your anxiety has started to come back is it sounds from your post you have been doing well over the last 7 months.  I get health anxiety so I can relate on that one,  I would suggest going to see your doctor and getting some advice from the,  tell them whats going on with you at the moment and see what they say about meds.   I hope things start to improve for you soon and we are here to help you through so let us know how you get on.
Take Care

Hello Badfish,

Obsessive thoughts disorder treatment can be difficult.  IMHO you should make an appointment now to see your physician rather then tempt the fates to see how much worse your sx may become.

Stopping anxiety before it overcomes you is better then spending many months trying to recover from a long spell of anxiety. The two main treatments for obsessive disorders are Psychotherapy and Medications.

Please feel comortable in seeking professional help now.

Kind Regards,
