I'm 22 and depression and anxiety run in my family. I've done very well for myself I think. I'm in a high level at work that deals with stress and confrontation so my anxiety is pushed further and further beyond its limits... Beyond my limits and what started as insomnia and a touch of OCD turned into anxiety and panic attacks but then all of a sudden I was handling it better. Hiding it better. Coping better... But lately I can't sleep again and I shake a lot. Dizzy spells to a point at times I can't see anything. Just black for a few seconds. There's nothing wrong with my eyes I've asked but I am anaemic and I already suffer with hypothyroidism too and I'm on microgynon if that helps anyone. But I want help with my anxiety sometimes I get afraid and my heart starts pounding in my chest but I can't come down. Some nights it triggers my asthma and I have to take my pump! I don't know what scares me though what triggers it... I need help but where do I start. I don't really want to go see my doctor is there someone else I can see first? Please help...
