''It's like a rolleroaster at times and I don't know what to do''.
What it's like to experience anxiety and low mood, sometimes at the same time, from someone we have worked with in therapy (quote posted with permission).
''Sometimes I feel like I'm on high alert and constantly watching and anticipating something bad happening. I don't even know what bad thing will happen, it's just this feeling I get and it's awful. I feel sick, agitated, sometimes my heart races, sometimes I feel faint. I can't sleep well because I am worrying about stuff...it's not even important stuff either. My brain never rests, I am always planning the next thing to do or worrying about things that might not even happen. As I said, it's not just affecting sleep; I can't relax, I've noticed I'm more impatient than usual; I am eating more to comfort myself and I seem to be doing millions at thinsg at once. I don't even know why I feel so anxious. Sometimes it dips and the opposite happens and I feel really low and depressed and don't want to do anything. It's like a rolleroaster at times and I don't know what to do. I need to talk to someone who understand, because my work colleagues, friend and family don't get it''.
