Anxiety ruling my life
« on: January 16, 2014, 05:20:40 PM »
Hi! I am new to this site and it helps me a lot to read other people feel the same is I do. I am constantly thinking about death and have a lot of "what if" thinking .
I have two boys 6 and 2 that are my life and it terrifies me when I think what if I don't see them grow up or they don't remember me. I have tried
Medication... Was on cymbalta for a while and felt much better, I could enjoy things and was worrying free. I also gained 30 lbs and decided I was doing so great that I didn't need the meds... Them a
Months later everything came back.
Some days are ok, others I don't want to move from the couch. I get these thoughts like we are
All gonna die so what's the point? I just started CBT and read hope and help for your nerves which was a great read... One day at a time I guess.
Anyone else have this funk and get out?

You don't have to control your thoughts. You just have to stop letting them control you.

I can totally understand how you feel. I have often thought about the same thing. I have talked to my therapist, and she has always given me support to keep on going. If you ever need to talk feel free to contact me. I always try and remember how many things my life affects. It's hard sometimes, but we really do matter.

I am new to this forum, but I must say a lot of my worry has to do with being there for my little ones as well! I am still in the midst of panic episodes, but am extending feelings of empathy your way!
