Anxiety Attacks

Anxious - November 27

I have anxiety attacks often. They mainly come on due to my health and fear of my babies health. my doctor said I am freaking myself out and that everything looks as if it is going okay. Apparently my anxiety is so bad I am fearing every little pain. I know my body is going through a lot of changes... I just cannot relax? Anyone else feeling like this?

Hi. I have been having problems with anxiety for the past 2 years. I had the problem under control with Zoloft, but when I planned to get pregnant I weaned myself off. Not long after I got pregnant the anxiety came back pretty bad. With me, it doesn't seem to be caused by anything in particular. My doctor put me back on a low dose of zoloft and it helped a lot. In the past week or so though it has been coming back (I'm 20 wks), we think that my anxiety is related to hormones, so I am just hoping it will go away again soon. I am continuing on the zoloft but I don't want to up the dose unless I just can't handle it anymore. I guess I'm not much help, but I just wanted to let you know you are not alone. I learned to deal with my anxiety by talking to a psychologist and really having her help me understand what I was going through. Once I understood it, and accepted it as part of my life, I started to do a lot better with it. Maybe you could consider talking to a professional to help ease your mind.

Thanks Laurie. I do feel better knowing that I am not alone. At first I was positive that I was dying. I was sure I had all sorts of health problems... then... I was told what was wrong with me... I think maybe I do need prefessional help (that sounds psychodic....lol). I just hate the feeling!!! It ruins my whole day!
