I have assumed that I suffer from anxiety for a couple of years now, starting in year 8 when I felt sick every morning before school and felt so anxious and isolated as i had moved classes and had little friends, i dealt with this and usually just have phases of feeling anxious. Most days, I will feel sick for short spaces of time throughout the day but convince myself that i am ok.
I have a phobia of sick and about a week ago i was repeatedly sick throughout the night/morning for the first time in about 8 years. Ever since then I have felt drained, weak and physically sick, often tasting sick and feeling as if I am swallowing my sick back down which causes me to panic. I am struggling to eat as I feel sick and have lost a few pounds as a result of this. Today is the first day back after the half term and I think that I suffered an anxiety attack (feeling sweaty, struggling to breathe, feeling incredibly sick and ending up crying my eyes out) and as a result, was sent home and felt much better when at home. Although still ill from this sickness bug, I believe the main culprit for me feeling sick is anxiety. I am sat here thinking about sitting in a classroom and being at school and I am getting shivers just thinking about it, I don't think that I can do it and I am in year 11, this is an important year for me. How can I overcome my 'anxiety' and should I go to the doctors for it? All comments are appreciated.
