Here's the thing. I suffer from anxiety and most of the time I dont know how to deal with it. Today I took some diet pills and am now feeling REALLY restless, and anxious and feel like I want to puke. Now, I usually suffer from Nighttime anxiety (as soon as I lay my head on the pillow I start feeling jitters like shaking on the inside, heart racing, nervousness like if something is going to happen to me) but I've noticed that with diet pills it gets worse. Now, I have taken diet pills before and had the same reactions so I really dont know why I tried them again but now I think i've realized diet pills arent for me. Anyways, back to topic. Does anyone out there suffer from anxiety and nervousness? The last few months I have thoughts of something bad happening to me (like dying and stuff) and it even got a point where I couldnt even think about a future event without thinking "what if I die before then?"..now, I had a baby in March, (also have a 2 year old) got a birth control device inplanted in me, and my family puts ALOT of pressure on me due to their marital problems so I dont know if this has to do with anything. I dont have any illness because I just had a baby and was PERFECTLY healthy at the time and even the dr thinks I suffer from anxiety. I guess my question is what do you guys do if you suffer from this? Do you go on medication? I dont know what to do anymore! I have heard alot about the bad side effects of anxiety medication but I dont want to continue being anxious. It takes alot out of me!! Do you guys suffer from anxiety or am I doomed to be like this forever? Coudl I possibly have an illness and my body is trying to tell me? In the last months i have convinced myself that i have had diabetes, a heart attack (i dont have a history of ANY heart problems..) and all kinds of illnesses..sorry for my rant but i'm so desperate!!
