Anxiety is hell. Mine started 4 years ago. I get the feeling sick. I get that as well. I have been to the er 3 times for heart palpitations from anxiety. Your not alone. I had to lean on my wife and 2 kids to help me. If I am distracted by doing something with them. Either a game or just talking it seems to distract my mind and the symptoms fade away for a bit. It is hard to find that happy place when your brain says otherwise. ❤❤

It can take an incredible amount of patience, I remember telling my family in 2006 I don't want to live the next 5 years, because my anxiety was so high, it was mental torture, so over the next 5 years I was so scared but over the years nothing did happen that I was so worried about, it did subside, it's still there but not nearly so bad & I sleep well, enjoy life again, but I do take meds Mirtazapine 15 mg every day hour before bed that helps too, but it can & does subside.

He'll have to be normal in front of my boys as well cause they are so level headed and I don't want them to be like me . Mine started in my 20s could of been earlier I remember at 15 I would break down cause I had to keep the house clean when my dad left and my mom hit the drink dad was also alcoholic. So my kids have got to have normality which I give them but my head is killing me .
