A is for Anxiety.


Welcome to a new series I decided to start after sitting down with my husband and talking about what else I can do on my blog, besides personal events, reviews, game related things etc.

So I’d like to introduce you to an A-Z series which will be posted once a week on a Thursday.. the first week I am going to talk about.

Anxiety –

I am un-diagnosed, I know many people consider anyone who hasn’t talked to a doctor has someone who used google to look up their symptoms, while Doctor Google isn’t the most reliable person you could ask ‘whats wrong with me’ I did exactly that a while ago while feeling panicky about having to do something with other people, I knew I was scared to talk to strangers and sometimes the thought of heading into town can cause my stomach to turn and my heart to pound away… so I used a checklist from the NHS website and it classed me as having Social Anxiety.

It can be a very funny thing, sometimes I am completely okay with people, it obviously depends on the person but if I feel that I can trust someone, I can talk to them easier, but even when I am having to go talk to a friend I feel worried about doing it.

It comes and goes, like the other day I went shopping with R and got my daith piercing done but sometimes I am completely scared to go out and deal with the world, I know I need to go talk to a doctor about it but, with the territory of talking to a stranger, I honestly feel I am not truly read to do that, mainly because my local doctors are a little fat bias and tend to blame anything that’s wrong with me on my diet or my weight.

I think going on from this people need to understand that just because I haven’t had a doctor write down that I have it, doesn’t mean that I don’t suffer from some form of mental health issues which is extremely unfair on those who hide away from fear of making that first move to reach and talk to someone.

I will get there, I am working on my problems one day at a time and I will come out of this strong… I hope..

    My friend suffers from anxiety and I feel so sorry for her because hers is undiagnosed but she knows she has it.

    OT but I’m so jealous you got you Daith pierced. I wanted to get mine done to see if it helped my migraines, but apparently mine isn’t big enough so it can’t be pierced, Boo!

      Ah that sucks!! I have to say one week (and a bit) later and aside from a little over slept headache I’ve not had one yet! It’s a shame you can’t get it done x

    I have been diagnosed as having severe anxiety. It started when I was pregnant with my youngest child and hasn’t gone away. Mine is mostly medical e.g. worrying about any tiny health concern, but I can get very upset in crowds and awkward social situations too so I know where you’re coming from – it’s an awful illness x

    I used to have crippling anxiety but now I just don’t have time to dwell on things so much. I’ve written about this on my blog, how my depression has got better since having kids

    Just because you haven’t been diagnosed it doesn’t mean you don’t have it. I had depression for a good 4 years before I plucked up the courage to see my GP about it. I’m pretty sure I have social anxiety too, but that’s undiagnosed, it really is horrible and can be so debilitating.

    I went through a stage of having Anxiety. It’s the strangest feeling, I knew I was feeling it but couldn’t do anything about it. It did go away but am aware that it may come back. I think talking about it helps so well done!
