I have always had anxiety but lately I feel like it is worse. My husband was sick for the last 3 years and I was by his side everyday. I would go to work then straight to hospital. Unexpectedly my dad past away in June of last year and my husband passed away in October of last year. So I've been going thru it. Every little feeling I have I feel like something is wrong with me and I panic. I was put on zoloft. I just always have these feelings of weirdness. Hard to explain. Dizzy spaced out feelings. I was doing OK then about a month ago my bloodwork showed prediabetic so I was told to go on a low carb diet. Well I did and had 2 episodes of real low blood sugar. Needless to say that triggered my anxiety even worse. I struggle everyday to go to work. If I'm not at work I am at home in bed. I'm sure exercise would help but I don't have the strength. I don't want to be diabetic because I'm sure that would make my anxiety worse. I'm alone and just want to feel normal again.

You are not alone. You will learn to control your blood sugar and that will help. You may have to force yourself to begin exercising but in time that, too, will normalize and you will start to feel better.

The main thing is to know that you are not alone and that many of us are battling in similar situations. My wife died of cancer five years ago this coming November. She battled the disease for about a year. In that time, my body started to change and several ailments set in; no doubt as a result of the intense stress. Often, my anxiety is so bad that I feel like doing nothing but I can't not work so I carry on. I have taken to doing virtually nothing on the weekends, though, and as a result I have gained about 20 lbs in the last 6 months. Anxiety is awful but we will all triumph in the end. Keep fighting!

Thank you. I'm trying. Its so overwhelming at times. I just dont understand how I never had the problem before and now I do. With the sugar drops. My anxiety and depression have been the worse.
