You have been asking similar questions for about a month now. The answers to your questions will not be found on an internet forum. You need to speak to some type of counsellor - ask your doctor for a referral. Also nowhere does it say that life is supposed to be great all the time. It is unrealistic to expect things to always be perfect. Ride this out, you will come right. The more you worry about it the longer it will take.
Hello. You are experiencing the dread that comes with PTSD and high anxiety. Not that I am saying you have it, but it is what I have experienced and what they told me. I understand a terrible medical event. I had my own event. The difference between you and me is that the fright told me to get help. I knew there was no white horse with a hero to save me. The only one to save me from that fear was me. And I knew it was a fear. That does not make it go away. I had to work on not being afraid. To know that I now have doctors to help me and people who care. I can still feel panic when faced with the possibility. So I take my Xanax and chill. Only once in a while. Then I get busy. I do something for another. I wrote here. I talk with people. I share. I find my fears are held by others. And most of all I work with a therapist. I call to inner faith. I am fine.
One has to forgive the self for not seeing, being there, wrong timing, weird illness. One forgives the self. Nothing to be undone. Then one goes forward. The past never ever changes.
Get help. I agree with Murphy that you have been spinning in your misery way too long. Tell your doctor what you fear. Tell the doctor you want the help. Then do it. There is no medication to cure. There are only things to take to help. You can do the work. Then you will be fine. Stuff happens. We learn from it. Write someone about the real event. Do so to anyone you have friended and spill out your fear privately. Get the help or your life will not do the things you were planning on doing before the event. You would be surprised what awaits you. Helping others and getting busy. Can you do that? Wishing you the wisdom to step forward and ask for the help you deerve. You started here. Karen
I think you need to see a psychiatrist, this sounds like a chemical imbalance!
Therapy is always helpful, but you sound as if medication would be your best option for depression, and depression is exactly what you are describing in my opinion, that feeling of impending doom is a dead give-away.
Get thee to a psychiatrist straight away. You'll feel better once you are on some type of antidepressant and/or an antianxiety med. Then tackle what is going on with a therapist. It may be so hard to fight this without meds first. It just won't do a whole lot of good while you are in this state of mind.
I truly wish you some peace of mind and happiness,
I understand your fears and thoughts etc..for I have a lot of the same toughts u do... i have a lot of mh issues as a lot of people on this site do..one being panic/agoraphobia... I was and still am scared to death to go out side think about death quite often more now because my sis passed in my apt in 2010 and she was the world to me... but u no what every poster on this site is right u got to get up and do something about it..no one can do it for u..I am by no means being cruel or rude or minimizing your condition for mine simular in a way 2 yours..but I push myself everyday to take myself out of that dark hole and I got a psychiatrist/counselor that help me push through my fears am I 100% no I don't think anyone is or will be 100%..but if you work on yourself it gets better and easier to cope..find things u enjoy doing and force yourself to get out of the state of mind u r in..most importantly see a psychiatrist/counselor..asap and in the end u will be happy u did..u just can't go on living the way u r... get help hun..GOD BLESS...
