I am new here & really lost...too much stuff going on in my life, and can't figure out why my state is not right on my profile.
I suffer from severe anxiety, depression, high blood pressure, and mega stress.
I have a 4 1/2 y/o son that suffers from ADHD, possibly PDD, and severe developmental delays.
I cannot seem to let myself relax, and I am not sure if this is what is causing my blood pressure to go up or not. My anxiety/stress level is usally very high. I know that I have a bad habit of worrying & over-worrying ALL the time! I have dealt with Anxiety and Depression since I was 15 yrs old, and am now 43. I still feel like I am getting no where with my anxiety.
Funny thing is I am able to help others, and am almost finished with my Associates Degree in Psychology.
I hope to meet some great people in here that share some of the problems I do with the worrying & being afraid I am always dying :(!
I know how you feel! I have an 8 year old daughter with epilepsy and I've lived with panic attacks now going on 12 years. I'm also going to school and finishing up an AA degree in Business Management. Much like you, I'm good at helping others too, just not myself and also tend to over worry and fear death. Good Luck and Welcome to Welsphere! :-)
Hello Mary, I am new here as well and I have also been dealing with anxiety alot lately. I've always felt that I was the only person in this world that had these scary feelings. I have epilepsy myself Kristy, and I have been living in the dark for over 30yrs. I'm happy that I have finally found a site where I can relate to what others have been going through and not feel like I'm an outcast in the crowd..
