Feeling sick to my stomach with anxiety tonight. Anyone else up? thlsad

Maxineputyourredshoeson Wed 23-Oct-19 03:42:18

Yes, I am. Also anxiety related. Want to talk about it?

MustardScreams Wed 23-Oct-19 03:42:46

Are you ok? What’s causing your anxiety?

I’m up, having a coffee so here if you need to talk.

I've just woken up, started thinking about work straight away and now made the extra mistake of coming on mumsnet. Also got an ear infection that's hurting- joy.

StabMeReapers Wed 23-Oct-19 03:45:26

I woke up for the loo and can’t get back to sleep. This is an almost nightly occurrence. hmm

Bluewavescrashing Wed 23-Oct-19 03:45:36

Me. Weird pains in various places.

@Maxineputyourredshoeson & @MustardScreams Hello! Thank you both, I'm sorry to hear you also have anxiety *@Maxineputyourredshoeson*. What's going on for you? I suffer from anxiety and MH problems full time so I should be used to this feeling by now but I'm not!

@MustardScreams I love coffee! How do you take yours? I think it's caused by a fear of being sick, I haven't been sick in over a year though!

@Nowthereistwo oh no! I'm so sorry to hear about the ear infection, they are truly awful. A great tip I found useful last year for mine was to heat up a damp flannel in the microwave then put it in a mug and hold it against your ear. Does wonders for the pain!

@StabMeReapers I hate that! I always end up peeing then wanting a glass of water so the cycle continues thlgrin

@Bluewavescrashing thlsad So sorry you're suffering, where are you in pain?

Maxineputyourredshoeson Wed 23-Oct-19 03:49:50

@ blanketsallday I feel for you, I have GAD and have done for several years but no, you never get used to it. I’m having an operation on Sunday, was due to be on 31/10 but they had a space so moved me and so everything is going through my head around that. When my anxiety is bad I also itch a lot and so I have scratched some places raw and those are bleeding/stinging.

What’s got you up tonight? Anything in particular?

I'm awake in excrutiating pain. Praying for the codeine to kick in.

V666 Wed 23-Oct-19 03:50:58

Hi I'm new n joined to try change length of sentence in jail for a specific crime and can you please help direct me to correct area here to try gain a chance to make it major topic of conversation please?

blanketsallday Wed 23-Oct-19 03:54:46

@Maxineputyourredshoeson Best of luck for your op! It will all go smoothly I'm sure. I can definitely understand why you would be worried thoughthanks

I also scratch too! I don't usually notice myself doing it either until my skin is sorethlsad Maybe give yourself a nice pampering with some moisturiser on the non bleeding parts?

I think it's my emetophobia (fear of being sick). That's usually what keeps me up, whenever I feel slightly sick I get so scared I'll throw up!

blanketsallday Wed 23-Oct-19 03:55:12

@Nextphonewontbesamsung 🤞🏻🤞🏻🤞🏻 hope it kicks in soon! What kind of pain? thanks

V666 Wed 23-Oct-19 03:57:39

Sorry just saw whole thread was not there before very insensitive post now I see all.
I have sleep issues my doctor said last cuppa tea or coffee best at lunchtime cos caffeine will only end at midnight never heard that think he could be exaggerating but coffee is not for now honey x

Pinkpanther473 Wed 23-Oct-19 03:57:50

PrettyPurse Wed 23-Oct-19 04:00:13

@Maxineputyourredshoeson - can you pinpoint what you are worried about in regards to your operation?

blanketsallday Wed 23-Oct-19 04:00:22
