Good morning!

I woke up with severe anxiety, heart palpitations, nausea, shaking leg, tight chest, breathing hard. I am so over this anxiety. I have no more medication which reminds me i need to call the doctor. I'm so frustrated not so much my anxiety but to have my husband understand my issues with anxiety and i feel I'm always trying to explain how i feel. Does anyone else have this problem?

Unless you have suffered from chronic anxiety yourself it's difficult to understand. Even if you have an empathetic spouse, they can't really understand the degree it impacts you.

Yes, I know what you're going through. I've dealt with anxiety/depression most of my adult life and I'm pretty sick of it. With this worldwide pandemic still raging it's very easy to feel even more anxious than usual-and to top it off a lot of us feel very isolated right now. Not being able to talk with someone else about what's bothering you exacerbates the issue.

These times are very unfriendly to people with anxiety issues. I hope you feel better today.

Hi. Use I have GAD and phobia. Today and last night is horrendous. I am shaky, tight chest, knees like jelly, feeling I can’t breathe and just want to cry and very fuzzy head. It is the worse feeling ever. Can’t take any more meds as I have had my share so I have to try and sit it out. It does frighten me when it is this bad. I do hope you feel better soon xxx

People who have never had anxiety will never understand it I find. They have a bad day and feel stressed for a day or two then get over it and think that is anxiety.. something you just get over after a night's sleep.
