I just want to feel good!
« on: April 12, 2014, 12:53:08 PM »
I just want to wake up and not immediately have heart attack symptoms plaguing my days.  I want to be able to eat without burping for hours.  I want to enjoy the nice weather.  I'm so uncomfortable 90% of the day that I can't help but fear that something is seriously wrong with me.  Despite having a very productive day so far I'm nowhere near happy because I've been having strange jaw pain and discomfort, as well as elbow pain, and I haven't stopped burping since eating breakfast.  Logically I'd like to say that something would have happened by now if it really was my heart….but my brain just can't accept that.

When, though, does it get better? For me, it's just getting worse the older I get.

I don't know that I see it ever getting better. This latest flare-up has been over a year already with no end in sight. Everyday seems worse than the day before.

I'm not on any medication, not seeing a therapist, and I hate life.

It will likely continue to get worse until you get professional help for it.

Well for me all the "help" in the world doesn't seem to be helping much.  I'm almost two weeks into buspar with NO improvement, so I'm not really holding my breath that it will be the miracle drug to get me out of this.  In order for therapy to work I have to trust that it's anxiety, and I don't.  So I guess this is a lifetime of suffering for me? I swear I'm just waiting to drop dead.  At least that will put an end to all of this.

And this is why I tell people medicines are not a magic cure.  Medicines are a band-aid.  SSRIs are not that effective, and benzos are addictive.  There are those that need these for a time to gain some ability to manage in the short term, but rarely are they effective long term when used alone.  When I mean help...I mean giving people tools...processing old trauma...and getting at the root of psychological and spiritual causes of our discomfort.  A good therapist can certainly help in this area.

I always thought that as I aged things may get easier, but I have been wrong so far.
