Re: Anixety or Vaso Vagel?

From: Jenna


HI, my name is Jenna i am 19 years old. I know the fear you feel, i feel it everyday. For the past six months i have felt fear from the moment i wake up to the time i fall asleep. I dont get as sick to my stomach as you but i get the diizzy. I feel like i could pass out, I know now that more then anything its my own mind working against me. I flip myself out that if i go out i will pass out in public, which cause me to make myself feel dizzy. Its not easy to talk yourself out of something you didnt even know you were talking yourself into though. People just say try not to think about it, but my body and brain think about it before i even know. I am going to see a psyciatrist in pittsburgh to see if they have anythign to tell me. I dont know how to beat my own brain into thinking everything will be ok. I havent left my house in 6 months, well maybe ill go to a friends but come home 15 minutes later. I know this is no way to live, and i have also thought about going on anxiety medicine to see if that works. It is a confort to know that I am not the only own who has this fear.
