I keep reading online that there's no connection between anxiety and going crazy but i can't help but keep thinking I am no matter how many times people say it's just anxiety has anyone had experiance like this before and also if you have any tips on how to calm down the amygdala
I am in search of solutions to the problems too. BTW, I had to look up the meaning of amygdala.
What works for me is diversions. Getting out of bed and exploring the net on my computer and selling on eBay due to need for funds is helping me. During the day I volunteer at least 3 day a week at a local hospital talking to informed patients. Often giving advice that I need to follow myself. Music and reading also help during the day and the later sometimes bring on the need for a very therapeutic afternoon nap. I am retired and can do this. I did not mention that to make your problems worse.
I have a doctors appointment with a Neurologist to check me for Brain disorders if a couple of weeks. I plan on offering information about the efficacy of new meds and diagnosis from new doctors here when I conclude these tests.
Please stop back here, I may have information that will prove valuable to you.
God bless you, trust me you are not going crazy, I no how you feel it's like you think you are dying, and don't no why.
when I was 7 years old, my dad passed away, right after that I found that I couldn't spend the night with a friend without waking up shaking and wanting to go home, my mom would give me warm milk, and rock me to sleep, as I got older for years I was ok, then I started getting panic attacks again, I couldn't even go to work, I felt like I was dying, and didn't no why, after I got on the right anixity medication I am great, I do not have depression, I never have, I have anxiety and it's very different from depression, I don't take any medication for depression, just for anxiety, and I also watch out for things that seem to bring on a panic attack, like drinking to much coffee, I don't look up everything that is negative, and I found that staying busy on the things I love to do helps a lot. Along with my medication, god bless
Kiernan; You really don't say if you are seeing a doctor or therapist. Really that is a great start But I know how you feel and there is no way you are going crazy and you are more than likely tired of people telling you that. But what you are fighting is very common along with many of us. And until you get into a good doctor and have them evaluate you thing will remain the same. And you know you need a break from this. Please try and get into a doctor and in the meantime, you may start writing down some of the thinking you are having so you can explain it better when you do get in. best of luck you will come through this.
