Can't take much more.....
« on: July 06, 2014, 06:56:22 PM »
I've been dying since I was About 15.....I'm 40 now.....and currently in the worst months of my anxiety I have ever experienced....I'm just venting...just getting it out because i won't dump this on my husband....it's almost impossible to get through days anymore....constantly pretending to be fine...pretending to smile....I only feel safe when I'm home with my kids and husband...they are my safety net....being consumed by death can put a damper on living....I don't want to die...don't want to leave my children and husband and this life....I just want to be normal...to control my own mind...my own thoughts....to be positive...to be hopeful.....I just want to wake up one day without the pit in my stomach....without the fear ruling my every thought.....how do I stop being afraid? How do I start being brave? Someone please help!!

I have been anxious as long as you and feel exactly the same. I'm petrified of dying and leaving my kids and partner behind. I too wish I could be normal, you are not alone in fact you sound just like me. I'm sorry you are suffering I wish I could help. I can empathise though xx

By taking one baby step at a time, and by believing that you are much stronger than you think you are----because you are, we all are :)

A psychologist client of mine once told me that if you try to fight life, you will never win.

That's a real interesting way of looking at things... Thanks for sharing.

Twins01 - I'm having the same EXACT kind if thoughts today.  I've been doing 'ok' last couple of weeks as I've been in therapy, but, I'm tired of just 'ok' and want to be back to normal and enjoying summer and whatnot.  Plus, I need to get out and find a job so I don't lose my house.  Anyhow, yeah - we need to get up and shake it off...

I have an 88 year old male client that has bladder cancer and they give him no more than a year or two to live.
He said to me, no one wants to die, no matter what the age, but what can I do about it anyway?
