Does anyone else’s anxiety get worse or flare up when they are unwell?
I’ve been feeling anxious since being unwell and didn’t want to tell anyone or accept that I’m struggling. My husband noticed last night and said are you okay? What’s up, talk to me? I just burst out crying. I explained how I’m terrified of the dizziness because it reminds me of my dark time. He said you need to fight it and be strong, don’t let this anxiety take control just because you are not well. So that’s what I’m going to try and do today. I need to try and challenge all the unwanted thoughts that keep coming and going and building on each other. I’m also going to try and distract myself from over thinking.
It’s so hard when you have health related anxiety because when you are actually unwell and should be resting to get better like everyone else, you can’t relax, but at the same time don’t have the energy to deal with it.
Hopefully the feelings will pass 🙏🏼
