I keep catastrophising thinking something dreadful is going to happen to me in the next few days, weeks or months, with anxiety going into the stratosphere. I have had this feeling for many years, I'm still here but I cannot get rid of the feeling.

I have a pre op next week prior to ankle replacement. I think the apprehension and anxiety surrounding this is just a small part of the overall problem. Lockdown and isolation also plays its part but I don't why I keep falling into the hole.

I had that catastrophic feeling for many years until I started with antidepressives. I had racing thoughts and was always thinking about terrible things happening me.

Today I feel better because Im on meds but still have the feeling that I will die soon. Other days I wake up and have the feeling that I will end up in the streets begging for food.

Lockdown and isolation makes matter worst. I went through a 3 month lockdown at the beggining of the pandemia. Lockdowns are horrible.
