Re: Question For Anyone Who Knows?????

i have anxiety feelings all the time, even when im not having a panic attack. it's called generalized anxiety disorder or GAD. you just have it whenever, even when you are not stressed or upset. that's how i have been for about 5 years now. even if im in the best mood ever and nothing is bothering me, ill get anxiety symptoms. i even get them in my sleep. it's pretty terrible.

Re: Question For Anyone Who Knows?????

Yes it does make it tuff to believe shorty.I believe I have a really good hold on my GAD (generalized anxiety disorder) as oppossed to years back and even still somedays when physical symptoms arise out of nowhere I find myself starting to question it all "is this REALLY just anxiety?" Then I have to push those thoughts away and say "Yes it is really anxiety."That is hard to do and believe so I understand the need for a bit of reassurance we all need some time to time.

Re: Question For Anyone Who Knows?????

Hey Shorty,
Yes I have been dealing with this second bout of anxiety for a few months now and can say that I feel bad all the time, I either feel hot or dizzy or spaced out. I have a hard time waking up but usually by evening I feel a little better. I have even woken up nauseous (just yesterday) but as soon as I get going it goes away. I have innermittent attacks but the symptoms last almost constantly. Hang in there and keep telling yourself you are okay, it's the anxiety. As long as you've gone to the doctor and they have said nothing is wrong then you should feel confident that nothing is seriously wrong. Besides, I rationalize it like this: If we are able to be sitting here on our computers and reading about anxiety disorders or posting about them then more than likely we know it's anxiety and we are not so ill that we can't sit here, if it were a real emergency or illness we would be at the hospital or worse. I have to keep reminding myself of that. Especially with the anxiety symptoms I have, like dizziness or foggy-headed and tired all the time, if it was something serious, I think I would know after 3 months of having it. Best of luck to you all.
