  1. Hi there your not alone. I have been anxious on and off pretty much my while life. Just recovering from another setback. You can get through this.
  2. Hi i had to switch meds as Zoloft was no longer working for me. Please try to get a new psychiatrist if this one is not helping.
  3. Hi there I have chest pains for the last 4 months and I am in my 40's. Like mark said it's just anxiety. I have had every test done under the sun and it's clear it's just anxiety. Sorry about your friend that would definitely add to the anxiety.
  4. Mark is right. I used to Google but I learned from this site never Google your symptoms that will just heighten your anxiety. You said you may have strained your neck cleaning. You have not been sleeping well. Lastly it could just be anxiety.
  5. Aww bterfly ((hugs))....that is hard I can totally relate. I lost my mom too back in 1989 and she was only 47. They say time is the best healer but you never forget the pain of losing your loves one. I pray to God I never have to lose a child and I understand you lost 2 of them. You are a strong women. But know one day you will meet them again. Take care
  6. Hi butterfly my kids are 13 and 10. I wish I could force them down for a nap lol. My therapist taught me a breathing technique a little bit longer than the one i do. She said start out 5 times a day and than build it up to 10. Mark I am just a very sensitive person overall. So when the kids have outbursts or meltdowns. I take on their emotions if that makes any sense. I am working on setting more boundaries with them. Than I was working full time in a toxic work environment. Hubby works late hours. So it was a build up stress and tension. Than I have always been a worry wart. Right now I am on stress leave working on getting myself better to be able to work again. Gilly i do have Epsom salts. I just need to make more time for self care. I think once the kids are back in school. I will have more time for that. How often did you the massage and Epsom salt baths when your tension was really bad ? I saw the signs coming that I was leading to burnout i guess i didn't catch them sooner. Plus I am on new meds which seem to be helping better. But glad to know this is a symptom of anxiety and hopefully it will eventually subside Thanks again for the replies.
  7. Hi sorry I meant I do the progressive relaxation tape at least once a day. Trying to do at least 2 times but hard when i have 2 kids to look after. I will try to do the relaxation techniques more often. I hate this feeling never felt this bad with anxiety before. Thanks for the reply.
  8. Hi there Does anyone experience burning sensation behind their neck and shoulders. This has been going on a for a few months. I know it's stress and tension and some anxiety. I did do massage but it didn't really help. I do try to do progressive relaxation tape at least once a month. But any other suggestions would be helpful and if anyone has this issue or had it and how did it go away. Thanks
  9. Oh sorry lol....i meant what if it's your teen lying to you. Small white lies which can turn into bigger ones. Oh and breaking rules. Right now I am going through anxiety so it's hard when she continues the same behaviours.
  10. Hi E I take .5mg at night to help me sleep. Trying not to use it during the day as it makes me drowsy.
  11. Hmm what if it's your life lying to you arghh......
  12. Hi Emma Sorry your going through a rough time. Yeh I get lonely at times even though 9 have 2 kids but they are 13 and 10 so they more or less wanna hang out with their friends Mom I have a peer mentor who is going to help me once I feel better at looking at a career change. This desk job isn't cutting it for me anymore. I enjoy being around people and helping them. So more of a caring profession where I could help people who have been through mental illness as well. Emma you can pm anytime you feel Ionley or just need to vent.
  13. I had to start using it regularly right now because of high anxiety. I really want to avoid it too makes me drowsy but only way for now I can calm my thoughts. Before I rarely used it. So your not alone
  14. Thanks for your replies. To be honest with you work caused me to have a nervous breakdown. Everyone in our dept hates it there. Yes she has health issues and very moody one day she is so nice the next day she is miserable. Than she has my coworker spying on our work and we are totally micromanaged. Can't ask each other questions. The fact that I know she wants me out doesn't make me feel any better. The amount of work and stress I was dealing with was not worth what I should be paid for being there so long. Finding another job will take time and right now I am struggling with anxiety and depression which makes it even harder to be motivated look. Sorry just rambling on right now.
