Hello there and thanks for your reply,it means so very much to me
.I will just say though i have been a member on this board since november last year lol.
Anyway,so sorry to hear what you have been going through and i understand fully,especially the endless circle of worry and the symptoms.Have suffered for almost 16 years and have had 3 lots of cognitive therapy,counselling,seen a psychiatrist,self help books.Only things i havent tried are meds.I try to get by without as i get anxious about what i put into my body and how i would react to this.I feel desperate at times especially this year.Oh i dont know.
I believe i have good times and bad,am going through a bit of a rough patch at the moment though.Finding it hard to eat,like i cannot swallow or breathe when eating,feeling as if all the blood has rushed to my head causing pressure and a feeling as if i cannot hear,tight chest,tingly and prickly,dizzy,light head,thoughts of dying,its awful.Each time i pray the feelings will subside,eventually after a couple of weeks it usually does,then couple weeks later here we go again and each time is dreadful,scary,tiring,frustrating but i cant stop it,why is this?
I know how you feel.I do believe we have the power in us to control what we all are going through.I also believe we are so strong,we go through so much.We have faced the thought that we are dying! and come through it,i mean my God that is courage in itself.I know we all have times of self doubt and put ourselves down but we are so,so strong.
Never give up hope.
