Anxiety, Moods and just feeling flat. PLEASE HELP!

Hey Guys, I am new here. And I am probably the worst when it come to going to the doctor about my symptoms. I know I suffer from major anxiety and have done for years. Panic attacks have somewhat calmed down and I am able to manage it. However 4 days ago, my husbands first time flying away in the mines and I became highly stressed days leading up to and 2 days after. It has made me feel tired, lifeless, dizzy, anxious, and overall low mood. I try to force myself to go to work, get kids ready for sports and so forth, I also find myself snapping and people and really overanalysing everything to the point where I get my stress levels elevated once again. However, prior to all of this, I seem to get this way for no reason either.. I am thinking it may be GAD?? And most of the time I have been excruciatingly anxious over my health, I think the absolute worst, that if I have a single symptoms, I think, what if I have cancer? My mind is playing total tricks on me, and at times due to all of this, I have recurrent negative thoughts that I feel as though I am going insane! It scares me even more and I get more anxious over the fact I feel this way cause I feel like I am going mental? Does that make sense? I am tired of it all. I refuse to take medication.... I have started on natural stuff to help me out. Brain fog is killing me, I feel so low and depressed. But yet I still go about my daily work? seems to come and go.. I also think its just part of having anxiety and worry and being highly stressed, also triggers this effect off as well. I also had 2 clients in my office (I am a banker) that have gone on about their children having major depression and the in depth detail - I become highly sensitive to all of this, I get depressed myself, I think its because I know I am prone to it? This is why I hate talking about this condition at times, it gets me all upset and feeling sad. I am felling like I am loosing control. :(

You are not alone at all. Most of us feel the same way just for different reasons. I absolutely refused to take medicine too for the longest time. My family finally convinced me to try a very mild medicine and it has helped tremendously. It's not Xanax or any of the meds like it. I don't even like taking Tylenol for a migraine. So it took a lot to get on medication for this. If you are completely against the medicine counseling may be good to help with the natural path you are taking. Hang in there! If you need anyone to talk to I'm here :-)

I also get anxious over my health. I refused to take medicine at first but after a while I started a low dose and it really helped. It allowed me to get my symptoms under control so I could figure out what was going on. Start with self help books, if you dont gain ground see a doctor.
