Q: Feelings of worthlessness, jealousy, and everyone is out to get me. Can you help?

Hello, I am a 28 year old woman. I really don't know what is wrong with me. Since childhood I have experienced some real hard and difficult times. I was molested by my brothers, I went in and out of abusive relationships after 18yrs old, I do not have any contact with my family, I gave my daughter to her father because I felt she was to much to handle, and I have recently had an ovarian cancer scare, which resulted in surgeries. I can't get to sleep at night because my mind races with questions and millions of things, then I don't want to get out of bed in the morning. I have no energy throughout the day and I constantly worry about what horrible thing is going to happen to me next. I have a HORRIBLE jealousy issue. I constantly think my husband is cheating on me no matter what he does to reassure me. I can't take this way of life anymore and I want to fix it. If you can help me, Please, please do.

Thank you for your question and welcome to AnxietyConnection.com.

 

You don't mention whether you are currently under the care of a doctor. If not, that would be the first place to start. It sounds as if you have gone through a great deal in your life and don't have the support of family. You might benefit from seeing a doctor and asking about information on anxiety and treatments available. You might also benefit from therapy to help you cope with outstanding issues from your childhood.
