I am so glad I've found peoples comments about their anxiety problems!! Im 15 and have only been suffering with constant anxiety for about 4 months but it seems so much longer than that. Everyday I worry about dying, whether it be just dropping dead or finding out I have a terminal illness. It began during the summer holiday when I was sick a few times for about 3 days, since then I have never been my old self and now i've started back at school again its so hard trying to do work, especially as its my gsce year. Its completely messed up my life, its so depressing. I also have symptoms everyday; I nearly always feel 'out of it', I have aches and pains in random places, feel sick at random points and sometimes get headaches. All these symptoms also make me worry about blacking out, fainting or being sick (mainly because I feel that being sick triggered off the anxiety, therefore I eat less meaning I've gone down a stone in weight), I just cant stop the panic and thoughts.
I do have an amazing boyfriend though who has stuck by me and helped me through so much, he suffers from OCD so he can see where I am coming from most of the time which is a great help. But even with the help from him and my friends I just feel as though i'm never going to get out of this, I have been to the hospital and they have set up an appointment with an emergency psychiatrist but its been at least 3 weeks and nothing more has been said, it makes me angry because I am hating life right now, I really need help. Finding these comments did make me realise that I am not the only one with this problem, and also that people have been suffering a lot longer than I have and they're still working through it. Feels good to just get it off my chest though :)and any tips would be really appreciated.
