Physically exhausted
« on: March 06, 2013, 05:16:39 PM »
I feel like I'm literally constantly lightheaded, dizzy, my heart always has something wrong with it, my floaters always get worse, I always shake, I always feel like I'm on the verge of passing out. I can't stay at home at night by myself. I'm trying really hard to get a job to get my mind off of things, and waiting on summer because I feel like ill stay busy. But, does any one else have constant things going on? I feel like I'm the only one. =(

And the last week I feel physically sick. Nauseous  a lot. I just want to know if this is normal anxiety and stress feelings/symptoms.

living in a constant state of alert is absolutely exhausting.


imagine being a guard walking the perimeter of Gitmo in Cuba.  can you imagine how alert these soldiers are while on duty.  all of their senses are on alert. they are scanning, listening, adrenaline is pumping, every sense is piqued....  for hours on their shifts.  well, luckily, they aren't doing this 24/7.  they work their shift---which I imagine are not more than 8hrs and probably less as it is damned hard on the psyche being ON for a long time--- then they go off duty and, likely, let loose and relax.  Imagine if they didn't.


so now look at your life.  when do you go off alert?  I mean REALLY off alert?

MOST anxiety occurs on a subconscious level.  JUST because you don't feel consciously anxious or had a day or two of calm doesn't mean your mind & body are relaxed.  It can take months of reduced anxiety before a body goes back to a more non-reactive state

Thanks sixpack!, it's just so crazy to think that anxiety could always make us feel this way. Like, go away, I have kids to take care of! I can't wait for the day to have it somewhat under control!

I've tried a few different kinds of meds that always made me feel like a zombie so for now I've been doing counseling and some breathing exercises.

Stress and worry can make you very tired and worn out. It reminds me when I have had EGD's done, how tired I
felt before and after the test.

meds are good sometimes and other times, not.

add exercise (you can do the Wii), hobbies, journaling, meditation, volunteering, puzzles, stitching, gardening, eating well.........
