That’s good to hear! I’ve been ok, a bit anxious but I’ve dealt with it ok. We’re starting in a bit, have my nephews over too so chill night for us.

Yes I tend to not want to drive anywhere. This has been a huge trigger but I force myself to do it. I feel so anxious driving lately but once I get there it calms down and I am able to complete task and once I am driving back home it starts again. I get home and it calms down. I hope it will get better. I never felt this way before. I am still debating on starting meds. It has improved over the past few days but still there. I know my panic must be related to recent hospitalization because I never had it before that. I just want it to get better. I started walking and trying to exercise more. Its helping getting my strength back as I felt I lost a lot of muscle tone during past few weeks. I lost 13lbs now in a month which doesn't sound like a lot but I lost the 1st 9 in about 6 to 7 days. Now losing slower which is good. I am thankful I found this forum because it does help. Thank you
I lost 25 lbs within s few months. Lost first 4 within a week. I was a little overweight but I don't like changes of any kind from a mental issue.
I'm even thinking of starting smoking again!! How stupid is that for someone who's anxious about their health!!
I know the dilemma. I pick my skin which I never did before I got anxiety over dental issues as of January.

You stay on top of it Kate. I had a wobble earlier, had pain on my left side and all the fears just charged in. Dealt with it though. Thought of all the conversations, tests, medical professionals who I'd spoken to and it is easing dramatically. Glad your enjoying your movies/snacks day
Hi USA! I know it's a crazy thought but I never had anxiety until I quit smoking!!

Yes I think recognising it and dealing with it in the moment is the trick. Feeling ok today. Bit less energetic than normal but ok.

Yes your right. I think it's also a case of weighing up the likelyhood of what your feeling being true. In my case, that pain in my side, after all the tests, the chances of it being my heart is very remote, more likely is a muscle, wind, or any number of minor things. My anxiety could've even caused it. It's easier said than done though when the initial fears storm in!! Glad your feeling ok though, your probably a bit tired from yesterday

Hi, I'm newly diagnosed with panic anxiety and it's driving me to distraction. Any little pain is the end. I've been to hospital twice in the past 2 months, I've had echoes done on my heart, chest xrays ecgs countless blood tests and all come back fine. Start cbt on the 14th of August but I'm really struggling. Could cry at the drop of a hat. I'm sat opposite my partner with a massive lump in my throat. Have to keep nipping to the loo to get my head together. Any ideas how I can get a grip on this?
I always try organising draws or cupboards when my anxiety is at an all time high. It gives me something else to focus on or I spend the whole time on my phone with google

Yes for sure. We all know that in that moment sometimes we cannot think straight or rationally. I’m deffo having an anxious day today. Just not felt right all day. Bit gutted after 2 good days to be feeling a bit low again. Still I know there will be good days and bad. Organising stuff is a good idea. I’m going to start going out walking every evening as of Monday. Think it will give me some space to clear my head each day and exercise is said to be amazing therapy for anxiety & well being.

That's really odd, I'm having a bad day too. Maybe it's a cycle thing and the gaps between episodes will get longer until they are gone completely! Well, that's my theory and I'm gna hang on to it. Sorry your feeling bad, try and tap into last week's positive energy. That was amazing. Had me buzzing!!

It’s so strange to be so up and down. That’s enough to drive u crazy lol! Yes I can’t believe I was so buzzing and now feel so gloomy. Frustrating.

Yes, I hope you feel better very soon. What were you thinking when you were buzzing? Anything spring to mind?

I think that I just wasn’t overthinking or even thinking. Today I just feel on edge. I just felt so clear and carefree that I felt relieved.

I know what you mean. Just not thinking about it is amazing. Trying not to think about it, makes you think about it more. I hope you can pull it round and get back to being you.

It’s starting to lift finally, god I wish it would just go away for good. I feel so silly for beating myself up all day with negative thoughts. Really hoping this group thing can give me some constructive ways to stop the thoughts in their tracks. Thankyou, I hope you can get through today. I’m starting to feel positive so am sharing the vibes

Woken up feeling a bit clearer today. Should mean today is a good day! I want to get a dog when we move. Good motivation to get out everyday and they are such good companions. Unlike my cats who basically use me as a hotel cuddles are on their terms only!

I'm really glad to hear that! I've woken feeling pretty good too! Dogs are awesome, you have to take them out so it forces you into the fresh air! They are very therapeutic as well. Stroking a dog releases good things in you and the dog
