Sad Today :(

I have decided to cancel our family holiday to Australia in january.

This is because i am suffering anxiety attacks and fear i will be ill a long way from home. My CBT therapist doesnt want me to cancel, they believe you should face things head on. But i know if i go i will ruin my families holiday aswell as not enjoy it mysef. Its costing a lot of money and i think i should be working on making myself better before i go and when i am better we can reschedule. Do you guys think im being a big woose???

Re: Sad Today :(

If you're not ready, you're not ready. As anxiety/panic sufferers know, it can strike from nowhere, which is really the hidden fear that makes us not want to go on vacation.

I just came back from a vacation last week. Before I went, I wasn't 100% sure I could do it, but I felt decent enough to try. A month before that, there was no way I could do it. And I knew it.

Therapy, meds, and time helped me in that time frame get to where I could handle it. Maybe a month from now, you'll be good to go.

I wish you weren't so hard on yourself. You are sick. If you just had a heart attack, would you think a vacation would be in order? You'll be better soon and all this will be a distant memory.

Good luck on your recovery.

Re: Sad Today :(

Thanks Shakes,

I have been doing so well, but today ive finally decided im definetely cancelling my holiday. I have had a real air hunger day today, really struggled. There is just no way i can travel to other side of the world as i am at this stage.

Im a bit disapointed in the Prozac, ive been taking it 5 weeks now and im still getting these air hunger anxiety attacks, im not sure they are working for me, or if its the correct drug or dosage.

Re: Sad Today :(

I was reading your post and i have the same thing happen to me i always feel out of breathe i'm always yawning and get what you said was air hunger i hate it cause it makes me think about my breathing all the time especially now in this heat i feel like death they say it's my anxiety but i never thought it would make me feel like i can never breathe my chest and back always feel tight. i can never have enough air i'm so worried i might pass out one day becuase of my whacky breathing. it's forever on my mind and the more i think about it the worse i make it. i'm tired i have body aches and pain iv'e been getting headaches and i can barely function. it makes me wonder if my heart and lungs work at all?
