What can i do
I am that last person that i thought would ever get anxiety. I was perfectly healthy and content with life. Im sure that the trigger for my anxiety was the death of my neighbour who was 21 and died of a brain hemorrhage from something i dont know what. I used to be content with the thought of an ambulance rescuing you when you were in trouble, but sadly i learned that is not always the case. My mind is constantly on high alert of my body, im paying too much attention to it and i know it but i can't stop. I read too much and google too much and i know i shouldn't but i feel helpless and that my body is going to malfunction. I live a healthy life style, as did my neighbour, so what more can I do? I was given lorasapam but it did not help since i felt my breathing was too slow. Im afraid to go to sleep in fear that i will not wake up. Now i have bad tension headaches and have convinced myself that its an aneurysm or something terrible. I try and get my mind off these horrible thoughts but its hard to do constantly. My worst fear is sudden death and my second worst fear is cancer. I feel its inevitable and its so stressful. What should i do !? And I don't have the time or money to see a psychiatrist so what now ?
