I've never blogged here before but I thought that sharing my experiences here might be helpful, both to other sufferers and to me.
My doc diagnosed me with Generalised Anxiety Disorder back in March this year. I'm not having any medication for it but I have been have some counselling sessions (about 9 so far).
I've been doing quite a bit of reading up about it and the message that comes through again and again is this whole idea of accepting your anxiety, of not fighting it - acknowledging it but gently moving through it to get on with your day to day life.
It seems so hard because with other illnesses we're always encouraged to "fight it", get on with it, to push ourselves to overcome the infliction. It seems this approach is the wrong one to deal with anxiety problems.
I'm still learning.
