Anxiety Symptoms Changing Yet Again...
« on: August 25, 2013, 10:33:27 PM »
Hello All,

    A few weeks ago I wrote about how I was getting better, and I have made extreme improvement, but over the last few days, I have had these racing thoughts that I cannot shut off....the best way I can explain it is I feel like I am going crazy.

I am getting all stressed out and scared again. Does this or has this happened to you? I usually feel this way in the morning, but I am feeling some of it right now. I want to take 1/2 of my .25mg Xanax, but I have been trying my best to stay off that med (only one I have ever taken).

It feels like my mind is just going and going. I have weird thoughts and feelings.

All stories and advice will be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

Hello fellow Texan  :action-smiley-065:

I'm sorry that you're having to go through all of this.
Anxiety is always changing...it sucks, but it's true.

I have racing thoughts, too.
Most of the time its about me dying of some disease or something, but I also get intrusive horrible crazy thoughts out of nowhere.
And it can make you feel as if you are going crazy.
I hate it...

As a matter of fact, it happened to me a lot today, and I went into a panic attack a couple of times.

I don't take meds either because they terrify me.
However, I am seriously thing of starting some soon because my anxiety has just slowly gotten worse and I am tired of not being able to live a normal life....

But, how long have you been dealing with your anxiety?

First panic attack was back in Dec 05'. Thought I was having a heart attack. From there, extreme hypochondria which lead to a extreme anxiety. I have a really bad panic disorder with agoraphobia, but I try to get my life back everyday.

How about you?

panic attacks come and go, usually being awful for a few days in a row before calming down again. Its a cycle that repeats despite out best efforts. But over time, the cycles become less frequent, and shorter in duration. Just as long as you keep reminding yourself its panic and nothing else, you'll be fine.

I know exactly what you are talking about!  I have this and as a result, my newest fear is that I have schizophrenia or am going to become psychotic.  I have been through several "fears"... fear of a heart attack, thus always checking myself for symptoms, fear of harming others, so I was terrified to use knives, scissors, etc and now the fear of losing my mind or going crazy.  When my anxiety is under control (with medication), I usually don't have these thoughts, or I can just let them go, but recently making a medication change, my anxiety shot through the roof and my "going crazy" fear is back.  You are not alone!
