Feeling Overwhelmed and Anxious?
I Feel Overwhelmed By Anxiety
Anxiety is stealing all the enjoyment our of your life and your feel overwhelmed and out of control.
Feeling restless and keyed up or on edge. You feel tense all over and often are so tense in your neck and shoulders that your back feels like a rock and you wonder why you feel so tired all the time. Sometimes you feel disconnected from everyone and everything. Things just don’t seem real.
My Mind Races
During the day, your thoughts race from one thing to the next and you find yourself worrying and obsessing about anything and everything. You worry about things that could happen to you or those you love. Things feel out of your control and you anticipate that bad things are going to happen or that they just won’t work out. You struggle at work because you feel confused, fuzzy or just can’t seem to think straight. Completing tasks feels impossible because you can’t focus or concentrate..
I Can’t Sleep
You have trouble getting to sleep and staying asleep.
When you finally fall asleep exhausted by racing thoughts and feeling like you just can’t turn your mind off, you may wake up frequently during the night, not knowing what woke you. When you are asleep you may experience disturbing dream or just toss and turn restlessly all night long. You wake up feeling fatigued and irritable.
My Stomach Hurts
Sometimes your have stomach pain, upset stomach or nauseated. Your stomach reacts to your worry and anxiety and you just want that feeling in the pit of your stomach to go away.
I Never Know When I’ll Have A Panic Attack
You have panic attacks for what seems like no reason at all. It feels like you are having a heart attack or dying. Chest pain, you feel like you can’t breath or are choking, tremble and shake, your heart pounds and you can’t catch your breath. Your fingers, arms or feet tingle or are numb, and you have chills or hot flushes. You feel like you might pass out, maybe even have and then you worry about having that happen in public. You’ve probably been to the ER at least once and maybe many times and had testing done only to be send home with statements like, “It’s just anxiety”.
