  1. Hello Everyone, So for the past week I have been doing alot better at managing my reactions to my anxiey and accepting it better as my new normal , been trying to keep my mind focused and not have it wander off. However, the past couple days my anxiety has had me in tears, feeling bad and ill on the inside and I absolutely hate when it makes me feel that way. It makes me feel like its trying to steal my happiness away from the love of my life (My husband) and then it puts me in major fear of losing him even tho I never will, he makes me the happiest woman in the world amd I wouldn't trade him for anything in the world , hes my soulmate. Hes everything to me, hes my home. I just want to get control better of my anxiety, it makes me very emotional. Please any tips, or advice helps. Thank you for listening !
  2. Hello, welcome to this site! I'm new to the sight too. I started less then a month ago I believe, anyway people on this site are nice . I've been battling my anxiety for 4years now and I'm 30, sometimes I still have episodes that scare me but most of my episodes ever since I've been on this site I've started managing it alot better, also helps that my husband has been amazing helping me get passed it all and be there for me everyday. Anyways the people on this site if you just read their post, some of their post has helped me out alot with trying to manage it better and understanding the symptoms and acceptance of it. Some times it's still hard for me to accept that I have GAD but I'm at a point now were accepting it is the key to managing it. Anyways, were all here for you and willing to give any advice and an ear to listen. Take care
  3. Thank you for posting this, this has really helped me out alot. I have been battling my anxiety for 4years now, and really want to find the off switch. Since I read this post , its helped me a great deal to turning the switch off and makes a lot of sense. For the past few days I have been doing alot better with shutting it off and accepting my anxiety and have been in better moods lately, my husband and I also just got a almost 10week old labrador puppy so he keeps us busy and keeps my mind focus when taking care of him , my husband and our bird :). so thank you again for posting this , I reread this everyone and then to just remind myself that it's all made up stories conjured up from the brain.
  4. Thank you for sharing this story , it was helpful. I work hard on finding my off switch . My anxiety attacks makes my insides hurt and makes me feel like I'm losing control and I'm ready to jump off this roller coaster..
  5. Today has been a good day today , been able to stay calm through any episode, been working on my deep breathing and keeping my mind focus on other stuff that keeps me busy . Everyday is a work in progress , but I'm tired of it trying to control me, I'm in control. My husband and I are trying to start a family and not only am I gonna get myself better for me but for my family as well 🙂
  6. It's a nightmare when suffering from both anxiety and PTSD but I would say PTSD is the worst and can be the scariest
  7. I take Gabapentin, it definitely helps relax me but my husband thinks we should try a different medication cause it doesnt seem to help enough but he says I'm starting to cope with managing it better then before, which is a plus:)
  8. I have a therapist I talk to once in awhile, yes. I am on anxiety pills as well. I also suffer from PTSD as well , so that doesnt help it lol.
  9. Today I had a slight image episode , it cause very much discomfort like always, scares me when I go through these episodes. It will either be an image scenario, auditory or both. Always focuses on me losing my husband 😭 this anxiety is destroying me , like it's trying to take away my happiness. Everytime I have my good days it tries to drag me back down. I love my husband more then anything in the world , hes what I live for everyday day of my life and I couldn't imagine my life with out him. I've been trying to get control of it by doing deep breathing and no it's not real. Any helpful ideas to help me get regain control again and accept my anxiety more.
  10. Thank you, I appreciate that. It's hard talking bout my anxiety but I'm doing everything so I can get myself better and make my husband proud.
  11. Thank you for posting this, this made me tear up as I read it to my husband. I have been suffering with GAD for 4years and it's been very hard to manage at times but my husband and I keep working at it every day. This was very helpful information.
  12. Hi, I'm 30years old and happily married to the love of my life . 4 years ago I took a job that was way out of my comfort zone, and I triggered BIG TIME! Fear. I didnt want to go to work I was crying all the time etc. My husband finally took me to the dr. Cause he knew I needed help and I did, as fearful as I was I did agree to go and that's when they diagnosed me with GAD. I have had it tough in life before I fell in love with my husband, my family have always put me down and drove me to tears my whole life, same with past ex relationships (mentally abusive) my whole life . My dad was barly there for me and most of my life he was cheating on my mom. My older brother was also hard on me. To this day my brother barely calls my husband and I or ever plan to come and visit cause we live out of town. 2years ago my husband and I got married 🙂 happiest day of my life! My dad wasnt there to walk me dow the aisle cause he passed away of lung cancer in 2014. My aunt who I was close to for the longest time gave us a hard time cause we weren't getting married how she wanted us to. My grandma doesn't treat us with respect either. My anxiety will cause me to have images or conversations in my head rumminating over past events , my anxiety acts like I dont know what love is, my first relationship was in high school on and off, I was close to him and his parents we ended permanently 11 years ago it was a horrible relationship. 8 years ago I fell in love with my husband at first sight , hes always been my best friend , my soulmate I never stopped loving him and I never will. Hes my everything, for 5 years I lost him and my heart called for him. Finally fate brought us back together and we were still crazy in love I knew I wanted to spend the rest of my life with him. I'm always fearful of losing him even though I know I'm not and hes never gonna lose me. My anxiety makes my mind have unwanted unfaithful thoughts like , my aunt always loved my high School BF and when my husband and I were moving into our own place when we got back together and I'm so happy she didnt care how happy I was she thought after so long that we were gonna end up together . So during an anxiety episode I heard that conversation and I went into a panic attack , numbness and it makes it seem like I dont know what love is because of numbness and like "you wont be able to get over the past" so that's what made it unfaithful. My husband is the love of my life and I tell him that every second of the day. Litterly! And so he never forgets. This anxiety is making me sick everyday , then after I come out of fearful mode I go into guilt mode from the episode. It's like it's trying to prevent me from being happy. I know all of this is silly it is, it's just scary too. I cry at the thought of losing the most precious and amazing thing in my life 😢 I've never been happy in life until I fell in love with my husband and he changed my whole world he has been so supportive though all this with me, he took me to get help in the beginning when I needed it, I still do talk to a counselor when I can cause we live out of town and hes right there by my side holding my hand at every appointment. This man is what I live for! My anxiety makes me feel like I'm losing myself and makes me feel crazy.
