    Advice on feeling despondent/No energy

    Suffering from health anxiety right now. Going to an eye specialist tomorrow for a specific health concern. I've been utterly despondent today. I was on autopilot on my way to the grocery store with my brother and he ended up doing all the shopping while I just followed with my hands in my pockets. I also tried watching a movie I really love and felt completely exhausted just sitting there trying to enjoy it. I've somehow convinced myself every small symptom I get is a sign of a serious underlying illness and I'm just a ticking time bomb. Pretty much all the joy has been sucked out of me. I'm terrified not even a dr's reassurance is going to pull me out of this. I also made plans of going to my GP for other minor concerns regarding very quick and brief shooting pains through my chest, stomach, legs and arms. I personally suspect they're just a result of nerve damage as I've had sciatica and pinched nerves in the past. But how I'm feeling, the doom and gloom, is just . . . exhausting. Will seek medical help for this, but I don't really know what to do about it in the mean time. Anybody with this pull themselves out of this despondent and/or no energy state in some way? I don't have any medication for it at the moment, unfortunately.

    Why did you delete your previous thread? It gave a very good description of your thoughts and behaviors associated with them.

    Thank-you, I appreciate you saying so. I am usually susceptible in lapses of judgement and do things without thinking properly. I came back from the optometrist today, diagnosed with severe dry eye otherwise my eyes were very healthy. Brain tumour was ruled out also. Gonna go to the doctor's in the next few days with concerns relating to shooting pains in my torso and legs (also had very palpable nerve pain a few days ago too). Gonna probably make another post on that just cause I'm not sure if my family doctor or gp is the right person to see for that.

    It is a good thing it was not brain tumor. By the way, how did you have severe dry eyes? And I am so sorry to hear that you are experiencing another pain. I hope everything would be fine and nothing critical.

    Keep calm as much as possible and avoid overthinking. I hope your HA is not drowning you.
