So I've only recently accepted that my anxiety is an issue, and I want to be able to tackle it. I'm just really not sure where to begin.
For context, when my anxiety comes, it's in the form of immediately vomiting. My chest tightens up, I start breathing heavily, and then boom. Vomit. Even if there's nothing left to get out. In the worst case I lost a bunch of weight because I couldn't eat for a few weeks. It's also very situational, and largely irrational (ex. getting jealous, getting out of a relationship, etc).
I get so mad at myself when I start throwing up, because it feels like I no longer have control. Then the anxiety cycle continues.
So I'm trying to do something about it. The problem is, I really don't know where to start. There doesn't seem to be any local anxiety groups in my area, and I am in a tighter financial situation so therapy isn't an option at the moment.
Do you have any suggestions for what to do? Any advice is really appreciated, I would love to find even small ways to help work through this.
And I hope I can help you all as well. Thank you, and take care!
