I've been suffering from anxiety since last October and it started from being around friends who were smoking weed, which caused me to have my first panic attack. Since then I've had anxiety and was on propanolol for a while and taking therapy but I didn't feel like the cognitive theory was helping so stopped. My anxiety has now developed and isn't about specific situations or worries anymore. It's more about being aware of my own thoughts and feeling like I'm trapped in my own mind and cut off from the rest of the world mentally. I've stopped trying to explain it to my family because I don't want them to worry and am able to come across absolutely fine as if nothing's wrong but I feel like I'm going insane and am never going to be comfortable in my own mind again. Can ANYONE relate ??
