Hi everyone, I am new here- so I want to introduce myself a little. I am a professional musician- suffered anxiety all my life, but only recently realized it is not the "normality". I had been in therapy and last therapist was just an asshole who wanted me to depends on me. So I am here, trying to connect to people who might feel the same I do and might have a work of comfort and wisdom. I have concerts coming up and part of the anxiety is a natural consequence of a life on stage- part of it it's just an overreaction to triggers. I feel exhausted and beat down at the moment- more than I would want to. I know it is possible to get out of this (I've done that many times), but it's the feeling of being overwhelmed that I cannot explain and is not understood that makes me feel really in a corner at the moment..
