Bed day/bad day

Yup, that’s today. I feel dreadful. Overwhelmed with anxiety and fear. I’m laying in bed so I’m not in any danger or stressful situation. If it wasn’t for the fact that I have to take my car to the Peugeot dealers today, I wouldn’t leave my flat. Any offers to take it??

So, I’ll try to describe how this feels. I have a burning feeling in my head caused by the constant rush of adrenaline. My heart is racing. My hands are shaking. I feel sick and exhausted. Feeling like this has never lasted this long before and I’ve certainly never felt it when just laying in my bed.

I wish I could sleep until this is all over. Its horrible. I just want to get back to the usual in control, confident me that I am when I feel well. I’m still convinced that part of these intense feelings are caused by the sertraline. They have never lasted this long before.

It can only get better.

Hi, I’m Martin. 47 years old, living in Suffolk. I have three amazing grown up children. I have the best family and friends in the world. I am a football fan, love going to the gym and I am a motorcycle pilot. I’ve had mental health problems all of my life. This site is about my past, present and future. I’m hoping to make it easier for people to be able to speak freely about mental health. It can affect anyone at anytime.


  1. I’ve had anxiety a good many times myself, feeling the way you described. It’s awful. I just focus on positive things and funny TV shows and exercise and so forth. You can bounce back and I’m sure you will. Best wishes to you!
