  • Hi:)

    What you are describing is anxiety.

    The first thing you need to remember with anxiety is that it feeds off fear.

    The more you fear something the more you tense up, hence you feeling sore.

    Have you done CBT?

    If not get yourself signed up, it can be a great help :)

    Also check out Mindfulness, there're lots of websites on this subject the most popular is Headspace.

    Practice this twice a day or when ever you need to. It is a great way to keep focused, relaxed and calm:)

    Hope this helps x

  • thank you very much I will check that out and what is cbt

  • Hi:)

    It is a talking therapy, cbt stands for cognitive behaviour therapy.

    Basically it's training our minds to think in a more rational and positive way:)
