Anxiety Support Group

Anxiety is a physical condition marked by intense and persistent feelings of distress, fear, angst or dread. General anxiety caused by routine day-to-day stresses usually passes quickly and is experienced by almost everyone at one time or another. However, such feelings that linger over time and are very difficult to cope with, and which lack a clear cause, may indicate an anxiety disorder.

All the time. It's like you have a bubble in your head?

Are you on any meds? When I was on Zoloft and Effexor (not at the same time), I had that feeling all of the time. Now I get it when it's about to rain (there is a link between heavy barometric conditions and anxiety). Or if I've taken a lot of klonopin due to some thick anxiety (for instance, when I fly).

If you're like me, then you probably aren't drinking caffeine, but when I feel empty headed, I find a cup of decaf or a hot chocolate has just enough caffeine to bring everything back into focus. You might give that a try.

Don't know if this is what you mean, but feel some mornings especially, that my brain is frozen, like a computer, it just freezes up, can't think, reason, make decisions, I hate it,I don't understand it, but there it is, frozen for awhile, seems to start to "thaw" out as day progresses, but it's a horrible way to start a day, and have to tell your family < "please be patient, my brain is temporarily frozen".

I get this feeling as well. I don't know why mornings are so hard, but I do get better as the day goes on. My best time is at night. I am on zoloft as well. It took it about 2 mths to start helping me, but I am better. I do still have bad days. The symptoms in my head are the absolute worst. I can't stand the floating, detached feeling. Just try to do something to get it off your mind.
Hugs,

    I have cancer

    I had to have a lung biopsy, and I have cancer. A very rare form that doesn't have any standard treatment. There just isn't a lot of case history for this. It is epithelioid hemangio endothelioma. The cancer support group doesn't talk every day. I can understand why. I'm waiting for the oncologist to call back for an appointment, and will hear in the next few days. Who knew. Ha!

    Support from family

    It's so hard dealing with pain especially when you don't get any support from the person who your supposed to be closest to. So hard when your trying to deal with pain and that person treats you worse than the pain. Having hard time understanding why. unless you are having a good Day you are treated like crap and they make you feel worthless.
