Hello guys. I've struggled with anxiety for years but only got help recently after nearly loosing my job, wife and everything.
I'm lucky I live in a beautiful place but people just don't get why I can't go out drinking, why I shut myself away and don't socialise.
Since starting alprazolam I've been exercising more, made a few friends that come fishing with me and one of these friends has anxiety issues too.
I woke up this morning feeling that knot of dread in my chest for no reason. I've been having panic attacks in work and had a really bad on at home last week so they've told me to take escitalopram as well. I'm worried I'm not going to be able to work while taking them. They made me really ill when I tried one but I don't know what else to do
I don't want to feel like this anymore. I'd do anything to be normal. I've thought it has to be easier being dead than living like this but I couldn't do that to my wife or mum.
