Coming off the pill & anxiety

Please can someone tell me this is normal? I have recently come off the pill (not actively TTC, just seeing what happens) and this week I have started feeling very anxious, crying at the drop of a hat about, well, nothing really. I get myself into such a state, my stomach is in knots and I'm getting anxiety diarrheoa. I'm thinking such negative thoughts when I am usually a glass half full kind of person. What if DP doesn't love me any more? Why hasn't he text me back yet? What if I get knocked down on the way to work? It's not me! Nothing has changed in my life, albeit an awful nightmare on Sunday night where my DP was laying bleeding to death on the kitchen floor and when I woke it felt so real, I woke up petrified and had to check he was ok (he was!). Do you think that's triggered it? Has anyone else experienced such emotions when coming off the pill? confused

Thank you Soap, that's reassuring to know. I'm just so shocked at myself, it's really not me, I'm usually happy and bubbly. Yet everything is worrying me! This morning it's mainly been about the immigrant situation! Maybe I should give it another month/cycle and see if it improves. Thank you.
