    Re: Really frustrated at myself.....

    Iím in tears I donít feel good at all. I have managed to conquer my irrational thoughts of heart attacks and strokes but Iím just feeling rotten. I feel like I canít do anything I keep feeling really wound up and dizzy. I feel sick I canít even do my work tonight so I feel like a failure Iíve spent too long looking at my phone itís made my eyes weird. Iím scared all over again.

    Phoenixess, I have had that feeling after looking at my phone too long and it will be your subconscious thoughts creeping in.
    I read what you have been through and it was very similar to what I went through myself and had a breakdown because of it.
    I thought at the time my life was over and here I am 6 years on. Your panic, dizziness and feelings all stem from your thoughts.
    When you feel this way, give yourself a break by doing nothing but lots of tlc. You are not alone in the way you feel.

    Re: Really frustrated at myself.....

    Everything you are feeling is 'normal' with anxiety. The impending sense of danger, death, fear, doom etc etc. Everybody goes through it.

    What you are doing by going to the shops and writing down mantras is the complete opposite of failure, and WILL reap you rewards eventually. It's going to be pretty shitty for a while, but it will get better. Please try and look back at the posts you've made even today and see the pattern of ups and downs. The better you ride out the downs, the more often the ups will happen, and for longer. It just takes a lot of time.

    oh gosh I get the same way if I’ve looked at my phone too long, or my iPad, or computer screen. My eyes go all wonky so that makes me feel dizzy when in reality I’m not. I understand!! Just keep telling yourself that’s a natural reaction to staring at a digital screen for so long - close your eyes for a few and just breathe and repeat that mantra over and over. When you open your eyes again you may feel better. It works for me!

    Hey carnation, ankietyjoe and glassgirlw thanks for your support! Iím trying to take it easy. I managed to close my eyes for ten minutes earlier and it helped a lot. I mustered enough strength to Cook dinner for everyone but Iím so on the edge the heat kept triggering ectopic beats to just try to show me Iím on the verge of a panic so I took some deep breathes to show the panic I am in control of it and it does not dictate me today!! For once Iím looking forward to going to sleep and hope tomorrow is a better day I have a deadline on Tuesday
    Thanks all for your support *hugs*
