Hello everyone!
« on: January 02, 2014, 10:22:31 AM »
Hi my names Karen and I was diagnosed with anxiety and depression a couple of months ago. i am suffering dizziness and shortness of breath, racing heart, and generally feeling like I can't cope with day to day life anymore.  Some days it gets so bad I dread getting up in the morning.  I can't sleep at night which doesn't help!  It's so exhausting!
I've been reading other people's stories on here and it's so reassuring to hear I'm not alone, I spend so much time feeling like I'm isolated from everyone else, walking around on autopilot while my minds going a mile a minute!
I don't know how long I can go on like this. My doctor has recommended medication to bring my heart rate down but its stressing me out just thinking about it- I'm 23 and I don't want to start taking meds unless they're going to help!
I would really appreciate any information about what others have found to help them cope, I really don't know what to do! Argh!
