I Feel Like I'm Getting Worse

I've been slipping. For the past, maybe three weeks, I've been getting terrible. I'm tired all the time, missing my morning classes (even withdrawn from two of them), not doing homework, and just...living. I'm not particularly happy, not excited about anything. I just want to be done with this semester.

My anxiety has been getting worse. The attacks are once again strong. I'll have a huge attack once during the day and have a lot of small ones. Or, I'll have multiple huge attacks during the day that just leave me exhausted. I am really tired (granted, I have been sick with a chest cold all this week) and don't feel motivation to do anything.

There is no reason behind this. No matter how much I've thought about it, there is NO REASON why I should be feeling this way.

This isn't normal. I hate feeling the way that I do. I'm mentally and physically exhausted with the anxiety and depression that I'm currently feeling.

Can anyone help me?!?! Is there hope that I can live without anxiety?

No, I agree with you. There's isn't a reason. Not a psychological one, anyway. If you're experiencing depression and anxiety, there's a good chance you've got a chemical imbalance. You should talk to your primary care physician. There are simple and straight forward medications for both anxiety and depression.<br />

Between now and then, try getting as much exercise as you're comfortable with, eat healthier, and drink lots of water.

I completely agree with fe45au there is always a reason.

It seems like there is no reason, but underlying there is a reason for it. Start journaling. Write down what is going through your mind at the time of the attack and just before. What are the fears. What happened to you that first set them off? There is never no reason for the attacks.<br />
Keep writing here if you feel safe with your thoughts.
