I'm new here and I'd really love some advice from other anxiety sufferers. A while ago at a party I had my drink spiked and developed severe paranoia for the entire event. Ever since then I have have crippling social anxiety, to the point that if we are going to an evening out or an overnight camping festival I will start getting anxious days in advance. It feels like a giant hand is squeezing my chest, I can't breathe, I get stomach cramps and feel waves of nausea. Once I get to the event however I'm fine. Can anyone suggest what worked well for them besides my dosing myself every time I have to go anywhere and breathing and thinking happy thoughts doesn't work.
