Another sleepless night for me. I'm debating on even working wed. It's suppose to be the biggest night of the year for people to go out and drink, and should be really good money,but I simply can not handle it. My anxiety level is off the charts. My mind is racing, I'm feeling like my chest is about to explode with how bad I have anxiety. My mind is manic, and all I can do is sit here and keep thinking. So much is bothering me that I don't even know where to start. I can't think of anything that can settle what I am feeling. I just honestly do not know. I just don't know. How do you release your anxiety? What do you do when you have these feelings? Does your life ever get so hectic that you just don't know what to do or where to turn?

Hey tlb~This is not sounding good at all! I don't know all t you have been kind of overwhelmed and not seeing your fiancee and that is bothering you, but I get the feeling there is more to the story. I have been responding to your discussions for awhile now so I am aware of alot of what has been going on. I don't like what you are describing. I know those symptoms only too well. They are definitely signs of severe stress that are now manifesting into physical symptoms. I have chronic depression so I know how bad it can get if left unresolved. No, you don't have what I have! I have a chemical imbalance in my brain, sort of a form of bipolar, but no where near as severe since I don't have the extreme "highs". Not that that is a good thing, since I have the extreme "downs". But, I am thinking that maybe you should think about going to speak to someone to get some of this resolved. There are no instant cures or answers. You can try all the relaxation methods if you haven't already. But, I don't know where you are on that at this point. I will be happy to speak to you in private if you'd like. My pm's only receive so if you want to talk to me pm me your email addy and I will write you back. I would be happy to listen to whatever you have to say. Holding this stuff in is really bad. It took me a long time to realize that talking to a therapist was not a bad thing. I don't mean a doctor, just a social worker who is trained to listen and make suggestions.

i know how you feel. we've been struggling to pay our bills and then last week they decided to lay my husband off. so now he is trying to find a job but everyone is laying off people. we are worried we won't get enough money to keep up on our house payments. maybe you should see a doctor. they could give you something to help relieve some of your anxiety.
