Anxiety regarding change

Hi all. I have experienced anxiety, depression and panic for many years. I was diagnosed around age 10 and am now 25. I seem to have major "episodes" when I am going through or about to go through a change. Even Good changes and changes I am in control of. I got engaged a few weeks ago which caused a lot of anxiety. I am doing better now and am happy and exited to be engaged. But now I am having a lot of anticipatory anxiety regarding getting married and having children in the future (even though these are both things I want). Any advise on getting through this time of anxiety would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

  • Change makes my anxiety flare up bad too. It helps me stay calm if I keep myself occupied. I also try to think about all of the good things that will come with whatever I am anticipating. I don't know if that was good advice at all. I'm sorry if it wasn't. Stay strong and best wishes!

  • Thank you for that advice. It's nice to know I'm not the only one
