Discussion of Phobias. A phobia is a persistent, irrational fear of a specific object (spiders, snakes, etc) or situation (crowds, open spaces, etc). Accompanying this fear is a strong desire to avoid the object or situation.
Hey everyone!!!!! I will be on chat at different points today. When I first joined AC 4 years ago (can't believe its been that long LOL), chat helped. It used to be always busy in there. I am not sure why it has dwindled off. Come on over and lets do some unofficial group therapy 🙂
Stool color is rarely a cause for concern unless its black or red. ANY shade of brown is normal. What have you eaten the last 3 days? Have you taken any supplements or Pepto Bismol? I have had this fear for years! My doctor has always told me I was ok. Try not to get too worried. I know that isn't easy, but you got this and we're here for you!!!!!!
This is a great description of what I’ve felt for a long time. I’ve had anxiety as long as I can remember but only finally sought medical advice this year. I am embarrassed to bother my primary care doctor for it so I’ve been going to an NP and now I’m having doubts about his advice. (Probably anxiety doubts)
Yes I can feel little squeezes of adrenaline or something when I get palpitations and I assume it’s a stress reaction to the heart flutter? My np offered some hydroxyzine. Do you ever get too anxious to take medicine just in case anxiety isn’t the problem? Like I’m afraid to take this new med because now I’m sure I’ve got heart problems 🤦♀️
