My anxiety is constant. I have a constant nervous stomach with really bad nervous butterflies especially worse in the morning. I dont no y? I even have it when im not worrying and as soon as i wake up its there. Its very scary as the feeling panics me and makes me feel like crying.
I am on sertraline and propranalol. I started diazepam yesterday which relaxed me some what but my head still feels like im not here and i cant think straight.
Doc said anxiety and it can cause weird symptoms. I cant stop thinking about the feeling :-/

Also because i feel so "odd" i have developed a fear of dementia or something. My doc and many nurses have said thats anxiety making u worry. But why the hell do i now fear memory loss?! Odd! I always think then worst. It used to be a brain tumour for 6 years and now its dementia. God i wish i waas normal again!

I live everyday in fear im guna just not remember things/places/people even thou that wont just happen i fear it so much its driving me insane.
I have CBT 7th december

How long have you been taking Sertraline? Try to remember it can take up to 6 weeks to kick in properly.

Also, have a look at a site such as MoodGym which will give you a headstart on the CBT. You can and will get better.

I was like this before i started sertraline for about a week so saw doctor as i had a panic attack. He said these are good for that sort of thing but i still dont feel great. Im not as anxious but i still have worrying voices in my head that are making me scared that dementia is on its way! My biggest phobia. Im 26 but still think im getting it. Even thou ive been told its just a worry x

Hi Charlee, anxiety's a fucker isn't it? I'm lucky, I manage my own general anxiety with a combination of online CBT via MoodGym and various distraction techniques.

You will soon start to feel the effects of your meds. As you've also been prescribed Diazepam don't be afraid to use them if things get a bit too much.

Take care.

Yes it sure is. Plays tricks on your mind so much it drives u nuts! Diazepam helps me relax and i need that with two kids, i just want to beable to sit with them without a constant feeling of dread that aomethings about to happen to me!

How r u today?

Annoyed. Went out to find a couple of Geocaches earlier and only found one. The other appears to be missing. The co-ords were spot on but all I found was a tiny keyfob with a scrap of thread attached that would normally itself be attached to a cache. Harumph.
