Over the past 4/5 months I had been made redundant, lost my grandmother and a friend has taken their own life. Following my redundancy in March, I have had 2 jobs, both of which I have felt I had no alternative but to resign from as a result of what appears to be symptoms of anxiety. The first job I held following my redundancy wasn't too dissimilar from the position I held for 3 years prior to that, yet I found myself completely unable to cope with the role and left after just 3 months there. Before each shift I was throwing up, acting completely irrationally in terms of being impatient, irritable and ultimately angry. I found myself becoming increasingly stressed on a week night with pure dread about the approaching next shift which in turn left me unable to sleep and when I could sleep I would have terrible nightmares. After leaving this position I managed to get a new job within around 4/5 weeks at which I lasted just 1 week before all of these symptoms reoccurred to the extent that I felt bed ridden and unable to eat for up to 3 days. I have developed an overwhelming attachment to my partner to the extent that when she is not in the house I find myself not eating or drinking, I tend to sit in silence just waiting for her to come home and when she does I can't let her out of my sight without feeling some sort of reaction. I have found myself avoiding my family and close friends and in a constant state of depression. At first I thought there was something physically wrong with me but after reading the info on this site I am now sure this is anxiety... I am 25 years old and have never suffered like this before, I am desperate to seek a solution to this but don't know where to begin or who to talk to, I find communicating this face to face with some one an impossible task hence my joining this forum. I just want help
