Hi I have just come across this brilliant site, I am suffering with server anxiety / sever depression , the depression I have to learn to cope and live with, but I can not cope or live with this horrific anxiety, I am on antidressants and my doctor has just persuaded me to take 40mg daily of beta blockers to help me deal with the anxiety, the anxiety has been extremely bad since the begin off the year due to me having a break down. The anxiety wakes me up of a morning ( before even opening my eyes ) the terrifying fear, racing heart, panic, dreaded it's horrific, I have to force myself out of bed, get myself ready and out the house were do I go with this fear ?????? I try most days to keep busy, but Iam finding everyday things really hard to do so I have to just try get through every day which ever way I can, it's awful and no life, because of the way Iam feeling I avoid meeting people as I'm embarrassed and find it hard to make conversation. I would really appreciate any advise on how to beat this anxiety exspeacilly mornings when Iam at my worst.
