Anxiety symptom makes me gag
Hi Nell lm ok...no gagging last few days but my tummy is still in knots.l try not to focus on it if l can help it...l to lm trying your strategy and tell myself the same thing. Today lm feeling bit more anxious and out of breath. I see my gp on thursday as to whether l continue on meds as they have only made a slight difference after 6 weeks. How are you doing?
No gagging - good news! You need to realize that just like anybody people with anxiety will have good days and bad days so be kind to yourself if you are having a bad day. Hopefully no gagging means you can try to eat a little bit. That also has to be a good thing. I think we expect too mu h from our medication, you need to let it even your body out so good luck.
I'm not too bad thanks for asking. This is probably the best day I have had in a month despite a fairly monumental setback so here's hoping that everything is slowly getting back to normal. I had lost 5 kilos in 3 weeks, but managed a biscuit 2 days ago and a small chocolate today so hopefully my appetite is coming back.
Hi NELL I know it is hard to make yourself eat, but not eating is also probably contributing to your nausea. Even if you only manage a piece of toast or fruit for breakfast maybe tuna and crackers for lunch and even just vegetables for dinner, it will help. I also gave days when I feel I won't beat this, but having had it before I know there will be a time when I feel better. Even though beating it would be the ideal situation, being able to live with it is also a solution - and you are. You are getting through each day so keep reminding yourself of that. Hope you can get your medication sorted. If you can get a vitamin B supplement, this may also help with the eating.
You can do this!
