Lately I’ve been dealing with severe anxiety. I haven’t had a panic attack in a few days but I feel this fear every day. There’s times in the day where I convince myself I’ll be ok but then it comes back. My boyfriend tells me I keep letting it get to me because I sit there and think about it instead of trying to keep my mind off of it. I feel I have to fight with myself to leave the house. I only leave to go to work and back home or to church. I’ve also been dealing with separation anxiety from my children. I only want to be with them since I find comfort in being with them. I have intrusive thoughts on and off and I try to tell myself that they’re only thoughts since I know better than to act on them. I don’t feel bad about my life. I have a good life so I don’t quite understand why I’m feeling the way that I am? I don’t feel worthless or like I have no point because I have 4 children whom mean the entire world to me so the fear of death has been crippling me. I’m so scared to one day lose it and do something dumb. How can I overcome this? I’ve tried Zoloft and Prozac but they gave me horrible side effects of Insomnia, my pupils were huge like I was on drugs and I felt super antsy all over my body. My psychiatrist prescribed .25mg of Xanax twice a day and she also prescribed Trazadone for sleep. Can anyone please give me some advice? I feel I am causing myself such stress and want reassurance that I’m not suicidal. I’m also always googling symptoms. Just hearing that word brings such fear to me.😭

sometimes people get anxiety for no clear reason, i know thats the deal with me. i think you might be experiecning depression as well. i suggest continuing to dismiss intrusive thoughts, and know that you wont 'lose it' just like that, if you feel yourself slipping then please get help from someone.
Keep fighting, you can do it.

Thank you so much for your comforting response. I have no intention with these intrusive thoughts. I just want them to go away and I try to dismiss them the most that I can. I’m going to phone my psych tomorrow morning and let her know. I am taking Xanax during the day and Trazadone at night to help sleep and it’s also for depression but I did read it can take up to 2 weeks to work.

Hey,I am new here but wanted to say I get you!!!
It can seemingly come out of nowhere & it can be
crippling.
I won`t go into all my stuff,but wanted to say something..
I have tried anti Depressants once,not for me..
I have struggled but now I am going through pre-Menopause,
I found some herbal tablets that were highly recommended.
They haven`t helped my hot flushed but
I have gone from getting up crying,to face a low day
To getting up & dancing before the kettles even boiled!!
I feel on top of the world!!
The description also says
"support mood and steady nerves"
So read the reviews on Amazon & maybe give them a try.
After many years of anxiety..these are Amazing.
(Hope this is allowed)

They are Black Cohosh 6.5mg (perfectly safe & herbal)
Good luck I know it`s horrible!
