Scared of everything I try

I wanted to type out something more coherent than this so I apologize! I've been struggling with panic attacks since 2013. I've always had a bit of anxiety and also have various medical pro...


A Bitter Pill To Swallow

Two months ago, I made the decision to go back on to anti-depressants. It is something I had been considering for some time. My mood had been fluctuating wildly, including significant low points. My ...


Hurt

Its been a few months, since I have posted as I have been adjusting to life again, I am doing really well now, work is slow, but have moved house and paying less rent, today I feel hurt inside, and pangs of missing someone I use to be close too. Its these moments that I find really hard to adjust with,  shes is totally gone from my life, her choice and it really hurts still/...


Do I need therapy?

Looking for some kind of advice here. I think I may have some kind of mild social anxiety mixed with depression. Never seen a therapist before, and ive been thinking of seeing one but I cant seem to bring myself to do it. Someone suggested it might be good for me to see someone but then a friend of mine said I seem fine and this made me think I was making up how I feel and overthinking it. Its nor...


Trauma & panic

I'm a worrier. Prone to panic and anxiety. In the past i've been diagnosed with general anxiety disorder. The last year or so my stress levels have been severe, I work in a really stressful job and I can just about cope with the constant anxiety it causes me. A month a go I was sexually assaulted – very out of the blue and it has thrown my life into disarray. I am seeing a therapis...


Can't get help for anxiety

Went to the doctors about my asthma, general check up. I wanted to tell her so badly about the anxiety I have every day. I'm sat there heart racing, dry mouth, stomach churning and I just couldn't bring myself to tell her. I really think I need help and that therapy would be good for me – some days are good, other days I am crippled by anxiety. I feel like finding out how to recognise thoughts and deal with them would really help me. I'm so scared that I won't be able to tell her about my anxiety and have to go on like this that it is making me depressed. I feel pathetic and inferior and can't go on like this much longer. I made the appointment because I was in a good place and felt that I would be able to talk about my problems but I bottled it. I let the a...


Coping with Panic

Hey I saw something asking for how you deal with panic so thought i'd throw my thoughts on what helps me up! Breathing. Always breathing. When I'm panicking my breathing goes funny. I struggle to breathe hyperventilate and it makes it so much worse. Focus on calm deep breaths and what really helps me is saying “calm” as I breathe in and “relax” as I breathe out. ...


No longer a victim.

Some bad shit has happened to me in my life. I am not going to be a victim any more. “Starting over” every day if I have to but my mind is made up. I'm not going to give in to it or g...


Control

I used to have a very negative outlook on life. I used to picture myself failing at anything I wanted to do time and time again until I just never did anything. I'd think “I dont want to be...


Never be scared to get help

I'm a 30 y/o woman who spent most of her twenties struggling with mental health. It makes me sad to see so many other people struggling and scared to get help. I was so bad I used to just keep everything inside of me and I don't think anyone in the whole world knew exactly how I felt. I kept it a secret because I felt that I would be letting everyone down and be judged if I opened up abo...

Down in the dump money problems

Off on sick leave bills are piling up. Received eviction notice. Don't know what I'm going to do. I want to scream I want to cry. I have no food. I'm eating noodles and pancakes. I have no family close. I'm all alone. O want to die...


Relaxing

I spent so long uptight and overwhelmed with anxiety that I didn't know how to relax and free myself of the torture my mind was putting me through. To be able to truly relax was something I never thought I would be able to do. I read loads of self help books and the message I got from them was that I needed to take time for myself and allow myself to rest and relax. I now run when I need to ...


It takes time

It takes a lot of time before you can see progress. Thats probably not what everyone wants to hear but in my case it was true. Small steps towards where I wanted to be, that sometimes took months or years but eventually I got there. Hang in there and keep going. The effect when you manage to take control of your situation is remarkable and a truly great thing. Dont let small things get you down an...
