i thought i wrote something here yesterday, but cannot find it...

i have not had anxiety issues before...for the past 6 nights...every night...i wake up with tremendous fear, as though rousing from a nightmare, but, there are no dreams...there is, however, a chemical-like smell in my right nostril, then the overwhelming fear, so much so that i feel like vomiting.....when this smell/fear showed up on Wed. during the day, i decided to go to my dr. who prescribed an anti-depressant which she said would help with the anxiety, too.....she said it would take 3 days to take effect...i am waiting...i am afraid to do anything, like drive my car, because of the possibility of an "incident" ....there is also some loss of appetite....yesterday i did not eat at all....today i am a little bit hungry...........

.i do not understand what is causing this as i have no major issues in my life at this itme.....
why me? *banging head on wall* emoticon

A lot of anxiety comes from the need for control. I'm scared of what could be, so I try to control everything because I'm scared of not knowing. I even try to control what others do.
It sounds corny, but the phrase "Let go and let God" helps. Even if you don't believe in GOD persay, it helps to consciously let go of the things you CAN'T control. Accept that you won't know everything, that there will be surprises, that there will be icky things in life. But there will be good things, too.
And if you're still scared, act as if. Many times, the confidence (or just being able to put up with it) follows.
Journal. Exercise.
Take care!!!

I'm not feeling an enthusiastic hello today so I'll do a little hello.

I have PTSD, Persistent Depressive Disorder and my therapist are saying I show signs of having Major Depressive Disorder as well. I have heavy anxiety. I don't take medication. I take supplements. I've had issues since I was a child. I've always been very withdrawn. People make me anxious. My mom used to force me to talk to people by asking that I go ask for something from a cashier or by making me "stand up for her". If I didn't do what she said, there were consequences.

Little things drive me mad now. Cat litter on the floor, time management, letters, smells... etc.

I get paranoid and panicky. I think that people don't like me or are out to get me. I think that people want me to leave and be without a leg to stand on so to speak. It gets pretty bad. I'm really anxious about food. Food is all important to me. I have to control intake. If I feel I'm eating too much I won't eat later. If I feel I'm eating too little I'll binge. I have to have control. Yet I have no control.

Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. - Thomas Edison

Nausea is a little better. I'm getting to work more often. I'm glad it's spring; the winter makes me want to hibernate.

Oh, nothing to be ashamed of. I met a lot of people who had attempted at my recent hospital stay, a lot of great people that I'm still in contact with. Had one person that happened to. I was released to my husband's custody.How is the nausea coming along? It could be anxiety, I find if I let my anxiety get too bad I get nauseated too.

EPC'd is "Emergency Protective Custody". I was hospitalized for a few days after a suicide attempt. Not an arrest, but a precaution.

Not something I'm proud of, but it's a part of who I was.

Hi all! I've had some form of anxiety nearly all of my life. The worst it got was in Oct 2012 after I was EPC'd and hospitalized. I was agoraphobic. I started out in little steps, and my current boss helped me fight it by giving me small challenges at work. I have lately been having trouble with nausea and headaches; no physical causes evident. Docs are blaming it on anxiety.

Hailey, congrats on your degree! I have a BS and MS in Agronomy--I can relate to all the stress school puts on you.

When my anxiety is high, I write it out. I say mantras like "This too shall pass". I try to distract myself so I don't overthink things. My boyfriend talks me out of it sometimes.

I like the late Carrie Fisher's advice: Be afraid, but do it anyway.....

That would be so cool! I have taken a microbiolgy class and a marine biology class for electives but I've never thought about micro-marine! You should do it!

My anxiety has been controllable for the last couple months, no bad attacks or anything but I haven't had a lot to stress about. My parents took me in to the doctor to get diagnosed, but they didn't want me to be put on any medication, which I am thankful for. My anxiety got really bad while I was in school and had to take anti-anxiety medication for it and went to a therapist. But the medication made me feel less focused and I was falling behind in my studies as a result. So I was weaned off the medication and have tried to find other ways of dealing with it. I have been doing yoga as a meditative thing every morning and it really helps me, I find. My boyfriend knows when I haven't because I am super anxious/nervous. What do you like doing when your anxiety is high?

That is awesome! I always wanted to study micro-marine biology. Never had the chance, but you know what they say, you are never too old, so maybe once the kids are gone...

How is your anxiety doing? Mine is fluctuating a lot. Can't seem to go do anything without it acting up. I've had it since I was a teen but wasn't diagnosed until late 20's. Family didn't want to think there was anything 'wrong' with their daughter, so I never saw a therapist of psychiatrist while I was a kid or young adult.

Hello,

I am new to the website and just wanted to introduce myself. I have been battling anxiety for my whole life, I was diagnosed with GAD when I was 16. I just graduated with a BS degree last June and thought that I could lose the weight I had accumulated through the stress of school. It hasn't been as easy as I thought it would be. I am going back to graduate school this coming year and am worried about my health, especially with all the new stress that will be added. I would love to make some friends on this site to help motivate me to lose the extra 50 lbs or so.

Hi, GOODFELINE!! Welcome to the team! How cool to be a librarian! I wish you luck on your journey and on your 5k! Let us know how you did on that for sure!

Stopping by to say hello and happy Easter!! I'm finally getting my rear in gear and getting back to working out and eating right. It's been a rough two months since I got out of the hospital.

Hi everyone, I am a librarian in Nebraska who is buckling down and trying to gain control of her health. 2016 was the year I decided to get my life in order. I went back to therapy, went back to my specialists, and started trying to lose weight. I've had issues with mental illness, including anxiety, since I was a toddler and they have gotten to the point that I was diagnosed with Agoraphobia last year. I exercise almost exclusively in my home using my WiiU or some videos I bought on Amazon (Amazon Prime is such a blessing), but it seems to be working. I have given up caffeine and am cutting out sugars to help try to control my anxiety and Bipolar on the recommendation of a former psychiatrist. My big upcoming goal is to be able to walk a 5k with my brother later this month, as the 5k raises funds for a form of cancer I am in remission from. I have raised $175 for it so far, so I am hoping that having him with me will make it easier.

Hi, my name is Cheri and I've had anxiety all my life. I'm not agoraphobic but I rarely leave the house by myself. Usually I go out with my husband. I do go out walking sometimes by myself but wear headphones so no one will try and talk to me. I have social anxiety and I stress and worry a lot. Mostly about stuff that to a lot of people would be no big deal. Right now I am in the process of giving up all forms of caffeine and added sugars while trying to get more sleep(almost impossible with a 3 year old and a puppy though) and doing yoga and starting meditation.

I've struggled with anxiety my entire life, but I'm going through a particularly bad bout right now, mixed with depression, due to stress and some circumstances beyond my control. Dunno how active I'll be in the team, but just thought I'd join to be among those who can relate.

Hi, my name is Kendall and I have had anxiety problems since the early nineties. I was actually diagnosed at that time but no one told me so I suffered for years with no help at all. Now I am in therapy and on meds and doing better. Always the chance to backslide though. Hopefully this will be a good place for support. I find that exercise, to the extent I am able (I have fibromyalgia too), does wonders for me. My mood is better thanks to endorphins and I am able to clear my head and do some heavy duty thinking while I work out. Usually to my benefit. Anyway, happy to be here.

Re-joined today.

Self diagnosed with GAD, social anxiety, and excessive worry. I have great moments and not so great moments. Many years ago I went to therapy, but it made me feel worse. I was very stressed about driving there. It was also too easy to lie.

Due to work and being active on a weight loss team I may not post as often as I would like.

emoticon emoticon Hi there. Stop by my page and friend me. I love making new friends. I have Anxiety Distress Disorder along with panic attacks. I have so many issues. I don't want to take meds but have been on Xanax for many years as well as Celexa. I decided to wean off the Celexa a couple weeks ago but have lost my Dr. due to her moving and now I don't feel like I have that support to fall back on when I get scared. I do have a psychiatrist but not that can be reached accept by my monthly appointments. I am scared. I am getting rushes throughout my head and body. I check my blood pressure and heart rate and all is fine there but the rushes of what I am guessing is adrenaline are scaring me and I can not rest. I really do not have much of a support team at home. No one close to hold me or tell me things are going to be ok. I am married but hubby is not good at being that support or being compassionate at all. I went off the med because I thought maybe it was one of the things that started my weight gain 6 years ago from 115 to a now 190. Been at 190-193 for three years, working hard to lose it and nothing. I am 49 on the 30th of August and hate what I see in the mirror. I workout everyday, if I miss its only 1 day due to pain of Fibromyalgia, Arthritis and a lot of issues with Hashimoto's disease. I hope to keep trying and not give up. I hope to find some friends here that understand and care. Hugs to all.

Hello all! I have only recently tapped into my anxiety and how it affects my moods, eating, energy and pretty much everything else. I took something that started with a C for anxiety several years ago while I was in college and working full time, I didn't take it very long though. Now I prefer more natural, non-addictive ways to calm my life. I'm looking forward to learning more in this group as well as offering/giving support.

Everything we do in life is a choice...I can't blame others for my thoughts or actions.

Faith is taking the first step-even when you don't see the whole staircase.
Martin Luther King, Jr.

Hi there! I'm 29 and have suffered from different subtypes of anxiety for 5-6 years. I mean, for 5-6 years i have really had big problems....Sometimes it seems to be like depression, but it's not.
When the anxiety went bad 5 years ago, I gained 45+ pounds in a very short amount of timesbecause i was trying to self-medicate with binge eating. Now I don't binge anymore and i don't take any medication. Trying to self soothe with communication, self-regulation, exercise and fresh air, also spa procedures, water is calming. I've lost about 20 pounds since in about 2 years, but I would like to loose all of the gained weight in 1-2 years.
Figured it would be a good team for me.

I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it hard to plan the day.
E. B. White

Exercising can be challenging to keep it going. Hope it comes easier for you if it helps you so much. Don't give up trying DL.

Hello, new here...suffer from generalized anxiety. Have been seeing a therapist for 4 years to control it. Found that exercise helps it, but lately has been hard to stay motivated to keep moving.

Hi , I'm new to the group, hope this is the right forum for me, I've had severe anxiety 15 years ago and was on meds , went to a support group and did some behavior stuff, eventually I weaned myself off meds, whenever anything stresses me out bad, it comes back , I had to switch insurance last year and I have to pay for dr visits in full, so I can't go ,
