|Im 24 years old and feel like I am losing control. I got diagnosed with anxiety about 5 years ago and have been on different medications for it. Currently I was just on Lamictal and Zoloft however my new dr took me off the lamictal and said that it was for bipolar and seizure patients. So she eased me off of that and upped my zoloft. I still feel pretty much the same. About 9 months ago I moved To florida to live with my fiances parents while he is on his final tour in Iraq. That has been a big change for me, along with not being around my normal friends and family, and starting a new job as well.
My symptoms are making me feel like I am going crazy. lately Ive been waking up in the middle of the night gasping for air in a panic and feel totally disoriented. I become so afraid that I am dying or something is going to happen to me. In the back of my head I try to talk myself down and try to breathe but its like my brain just wont listen. I keep thinking that I must have something wrong or a tumor or something horrid. My Doctor did a MRI 4 yrs ago and everything was fine and came back as Im suffering from anxiety, my blood tests also came back negative for anything harmful. So I am fine I just cant seem to accept it. I feel like I am rambling on and on. I cant describe how my head feels on a daily basis but its almost just loopy I guess. I have to tell people to tell me Im ok and not dying to actually calm down. I know this is just anxiety..but... Im tired of it!
im afraid to drive but do it anyway because Im not going to loose another job to my anxiety.
I hate medication and wish there was some way I could learn proper breathing or meditation or vitamins or something !!! Is there anyone that is going through this same thing. Please talk to me!
