A years ago I moved to a new Country and have since then been pleaged with anxiety based about dying and I am having a hard time controling it. I really need to talk to someone about it but I can find and english speaking therepist in my area. Is there an oline place a can speak to someone now?

KansasTherapist : I will be on line for an hour or so if you want to chat.

I am not sure if this is working?

KansasTherapist : Hello



sorry I was confused about how this works

KansasTherapist : It's okay. You can just type now and we can chat.


KansasTherapist : You're having a hard time with anxiety?



I am in constant fear of dying


like now, my doctor told me yesterday I have broncitis and I am freaking out

KansasTherapist : Do you know someone who speaks English and German you might have go with you to an appointment?

yes I do but they have zero time


when they do have time there isnt a theripist open

KansasTherapist : Would you consider medication for anxiety?

I would like to explore other options first

KansasTherapist : Okay.
KansasTherapist : Some times thought stopping helps with anxiety.

I really feel like I just need to address with someone why I am having these feelings

KansasTherapist : Anxiety is both a mental and physical illness.

yes it is

KansasTherapist : Once your mind starts thinking about the anxiety provoking issue, your body gets triggered.
KansasTherapist : The reaction of your body then reinforces the anxiety. It becomes a bad cycle.

I know.

KansasTherapist : How did you first start thinking about dying?

im not sure really.

KansasTherapist : Was it when you first got to Germany?

no I think it started before then but It has been all consuming since

KansasTherapist : Do you want to try thought stopping?


KansasTherapist : First you think of things that help you feel calm. What relaxes you?

honestly, I cant tell you what does anymore.

KansasTherapist : What about things like the ocean, rain, the wind in the trees?

thinking of those thing isnt calming to me anymore. that is way I am here. I cant stop this overwhelmed feeling

KansasTherapist : It sounds like you might need some meds for a little while in order to be able to calm down enough to use other techniques.

that isnt the answer i was hoping for right now...

KansasTherapist : I understand, but you seem to overwhelmed to manage your anxiety right now.

I just reallly want to talk to someone right now. I am terrified of taking medication.

KansasTherapist : Okay

I dont know where to start. I am feeling very affraid and lost.

KansasTherapist : Is there anything in your life that is going right?

yes. everything is great. My marraige is strong. I am happy where I am. But its is the constant fear of keeling over one day that is the bad part

KansasTherapist : Does your husband know what's going on?

It makes me feel ou of Control. I had a very very bad childhood where me being in control of my self kept me alive.


yes he does. and he trys to help. But if he cant understand how can he help?

KansasTherapist : So being out of control is the worst part?

its not the being dead part. Its the dying part that terrifes me


ultimate lose of control

KansasTherapist : Sometimes wrapping in a blanket and rocking helps.

i am calmer now. i guess I just what to know if there is anyway I can find a counselor online via skype or whatever to talk to. I have dealt with this enough. I am tired and it is going to ruin my life if I cant change it

KansasTherapist : Hang on, let me check.

thank you

KansasTherapist :
