I've had it for a number of years and have a C T scan every 6 mos. So far my Dr. says it was very small and not to worry. It was found by accident in a back x-ray. It runs in the family and one member died of it. Another one had surgery. This last test showed it had grown so he is sending me to an artery surgeon. I have an appmt. later this month. I'm trying to be positive. My dr. says not to worry but that's not possible the way I worry. lol I think that is why I am having a bad time with anxiety now. lol Thank you for asking. It is nice to know someone who doesn't even know me cares. lol I'll keep you informed.

I just took a two hour nap thinking I would wake up feeling better. I feel like I'm on the verge of a panic attack all the time now. Like one misstep and boom nervous breakdown city.

I don't want to go back into rehab. I want to beat this thing on the outside. Why is it proving to be so difficult? I feel like I'm going crazy.

I feel like I'm losing it right now. I can't think of anything but panic attacks and nervous breakdowns. This is the worst it's been since I got out. What is going on? Why am I feeling like this. It's absolute torture. I'm also having flashbacks of the traumatic experience I went through to get me into rehab. Why am I feeling like this. It's not right and it's not fair. I feel I'm edge and anything could send me over the edge. Please help. Let me know I'm not the only one going through this. I can't imagine anyone going through what I am. Love you guys and gal's.

You aren't the only one who gets those feelings. I do and everyone else who is afflicted with anxiety goes through this and sometimes for no reason at all that you can think of. As soon as one bad thought comes the other ones follow. I hate it too and tell my husband sometimes that I just can't go through this again. But we do. We get through it. I am the last person to give advice but sometimes we just have to ride it through. I'm having a bad time right now too and I am trying to just go with it. I get mad and tell it to do it's worse, that I am ready for it. I'm hoping someone else comes on and gives you advice, probably better than mine. Butters I am remembering you in my prayers tonight and I hope tomorrow is better. I'm nervous just writing this so you see you are not alone.

So, people on this site walk around teetering on the edge of having a panic attack, having the feeling that their body is not their own, that at any minute they could have a nervous breakdown?

I hate this feeling. Thinking that I can't do this anymore, that I'm going to succumb to the anxiety and have a nervous breakdow. I just want to feel normal again like I did for the two days in rehab.

Idk if this is gonna make you feel better man, but I have dealt with anxiety since like 4 years old and some days it really is like that. I'm kinda "used to it", as in I don't react very sensitively anymore. So I can imagine a lot of us understand what you feel.

Butters I sure hope you are feeling better today. I don't know how to post what you said on here above my reply but hope you see it. I'm still worried about this aneurysm thing so I hope my meds kick in soon. Still listening to music. Does help me a little. I know Triceps helps you. He always has good advice. Everyone on here seems good to listen to.

Oh Rosy, I'm so sorry about your aneurysm. I really hope the meds kick in soon too. I'm glad listening to music helps you. Wish it did the same for me.

I am sure there is something that will work for you. Everyone finds something that helps them. You will find something too. Maybe tomorrow will be a better day. Hope so.

I'm hoping so because I have to get out there and start making money. The bills are piling up and that's making me nervous too. Very nervous.

I don't have to worry about working. I am 80 and retired. But I went through those years. I used to walk to work and everyday I would say Well if I can make it to that next tree I'll be okay. lol You will get through it. I know you will.

Hi everyone - I took a break from the forum during the holidays, but I'm here, too - struggling some tonight. @Butters I'm so sorry you're still on this verge. It's so so hard. It CAN get better - any idea why you felt so much better at an inpatient center? Did you feel safer? 3 days is not long enough to really give your body a rest and tackle anything...I am hoping and praying you get some relief. I have been there - My worst episode lasted about 3-4 months, probably? I felt like that 24 hours a day...

How are you doing today? And @Rosy , welcome!!!!

Glad to be here. I didn't realize so many people had problems like mine. Have a good night.
Oh YES - IT'S SO COMMON, and nobody talks about it. I have become pretty open about it with people I trust, but there is so much misunderstanding. I hope this is a good encouragement for you. It has been for me - I just turned 40 and have had anxiety struggles for as long as I can remember.

Well, I am 80 and have had anxiety since I was a teenager. And like so many others never said much about it. You name it I have had it. lol People are much more open now and more people get help and don't feel so alone. I wish it were like this when I was younger.
