I just wanted to share some positivity about overcoming anxiety. I realise it won't work for everyone but after a year of daily intense anxiety I'm finally feeling more like me again.
I've had every health anxiety symptom going at some point over the last year and really thought I had a serious illness. Visited my Gp several times a week, annoyed my family and friends asking for advice and Dr Google became my best friend. I tried sertraline but couldn't cope with the side effects so begged for CBT.
Its changing my life, I've had 5 sessions, its hard work putting new ways of thinking into place but I'm feeling 95% better. I've got my confidence back and have had no physical symptoms for 3 weeks now (longest I've gone in a year).
I know people who CBT hasn't worked for but if you haven't tried it please give it ago.
I've also had this forum to turn to and a couple of lovely ladies to turn to and share our experiences with. Good luck everyone, we can beat this xx
