I’m letting ya’ll know right now that this post might not make a lot of sense. I’m not that great at putting my thoughts into words. This isn’t exactly wedding related, but I think it’s sort of emotional related. I wasn’t sure where to put it.
I have been feeling really anxious/nervous and antsy recently. The last two nights I have just felt like I can’t calm down. I’ll be sitting on the couch and all of the sudden I feel like I have to get up and move around, like I can’t sit still. My heart starts racing, and I just can’t really calm down.
I don’t even know what is causing me to feel like this. I think I need to find things to keep myself busy, at least busier than I have been. I’m kind of a homebody, I like to stay home more than go out. My boyfriend goes over to a friends house a few nights a week and I always feel worse when he isn’t here. I think one thing that will help me is working out, I used to, but I haven’t been since there has been snow on the ground for three weeks.
I know ya’ll aren’t doctors (well maybe some of you are) but I just kinda needed to get this out. And then maybe someone has some advice, or just support. For some reason I don’t feel like takling to my friends about it, they’re all really busy with school and work right now. (And don’t worry the boyfriend knows….he was home last night when I felt this way)

im sorry to hear that you’re going through this. you may want to talk to your doctor about whats going on. my mom has had similar problems and she talked to her doctor about it. they were able to help her out. i hope things get better for you!!

It’s sounds like anxiety attacks – can you talk to your doctor about it!
Also working out might help as well so if you can get back into that routine I think it might help keep you calm.

((Hugs)) I know how rough these anxiety attacks can be! Talk to your doctor and maybe they can prescribe an anti-anxiety medication. Also, is there a history of depression in your family? The problem with anxiety and depression is that they like to hang out together and when you get one you’ll frequently get the other. Hang in there and try and get some help.

Another question…. I already see a therapist to deal with some family issues that I wasn’t dealing with very well.. I guess I should tell her I’m feeling this way. I don’t know what all she can do for me. She can’t prescribe meds or anything… cause she is like a social worker.
Think I should see my normal doctor too?

Definately talk to your therapist. They can give you behavioral responses that you can use and help you figure out if there’s a deeper reason why you feel this way. But, you should talk to your regular doctor too since it could be a chemical imbalance in the brain.

Talk to your therapist, you don’t want to go on meds before you’ve talked it out and have a better idea of what’s going on. Your therapist should have some ideas on other ways to cope, and you can see your doctor about it if those don’t work or the attacks get worse. It’s not a nice way to feel at all – good luck!
