I'm a newbie. I'm finding it hard to deal with panic attacks and flashbacks , taking olanzapine and diazepam but they've stopped zoplicone which I found really helped. I have cptsd, anxiety ocd depression disorder. Recently I've felt so full of adrenalin and I can't get rid if it. I can run miles as long as I don't stop tospeakto anybody but this coping strategy is wearing thin. I self harmedfor years and also have aneatingdissorder by need to find better ways of dealing with life. My cpn is amazing but I'm worried about telling her how bad I feel. Any advice would be great thank you

Welcome! I am new too. I struggle with frequent anxiety attacks, I have GAD and depression although i failed to mention depression in my initial post. If you are speaking of that anxious adrenaline rush that doesn't go away, I can totally relate, and it's so draining. I can see how running as a coping mechanism is running thin, you can only run so much before it takes a toll on yourself. I am glad you are here that way you are able to vent and speak with fellow "suffers" for lack of a better term, and get advise as well. I'm sorry that I do not have any actual advice, but know that you are not alone, we are all struggling through (most of us on this forum i mean) and we are all here to support and listen to each other. As I said, I am horrible at good advice, but I have a great listening ear :)

Thanks so much for replying. Itshorrible old thing isn't it. I don't know about you but I always feel like I'm on the outside looking in ha. Tried to speak to my fam and all I get is your being silly, everybody gets anxious. Which doesn't help although I don't think they mean it nasty. I'm so glad somebody answered, never posted before but feels good knowing I'm not the only one,so thank you again.

Hi elsey you are not alone. I know what you mean about the constant adrenaline but I can’t get motivated to get up and excersise as I haven’t been eating properly through anxiety and my energy is low. I hope you feel better soon

Hello and thank you for reply. I'm taking olanzapine at the moment and so worried about putting on weight I think I'm pushing it. They keep saying I need to put on weight but it plays in my head all the time and so I end up running miles just in case I do. It's not really helping with sleep yet either. When I can't facegoing through the door I'm pacing back and forth. This sounds awful but self harming was the only thing that would calm me down. Just trying to find other ways of coping. I'm grateful for you answering my post, it's good to know others understand as it's so difficult to explain how you feel to people. I don't have any friends, just my parents. I'm managing to keep my children at their best but I know my issues affect our home life. It's like a cycle of guilt. I hope you feel better soon too.sorry for going on. I don't really speak to anyone but glad I've used this forum, even writing offers some relief. You all take care

It’s hard when you have children as you feel guilty. I have 2 young boys and I just hope they don’t pick up on my bad vibes. It is a worry but all we can do is our best for them

Yes that's right, sometimes I find the kids a tonic and a reason to keep on going. X
