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
