Hi all, I have been struggling with what I believe to be anxiety with panic attacks thrown in, I have never been diagnosed due to not wanting to be judged by a doctor or other professional. I have finally told my boss at work about my feelings and luckily they have been very supportive towards me which is was a great help. The only other person I have ever told about my condition is my soon to be hubby, he is supportive but I do feel he could do more. I don't think he fully understands how I feel at that moment, I have tried to talk to him about it and he tells me he understands but when I am panicking or worrying I feel like he wants me to get a grip. A lot of my feeling of unease happens when he goes out with his mates, I worry that something awful is going to happen to him when he is out or that when he gets home he will be ill or possibly be sick in the night... (he is currently out at the moment). Their are many other things that I worry about i.e Work, My up coming Wedding, Finances ect..
My partner has told me that I should see someone about my condition to get help but then I worry once again, don't want my doctor to think I am just being silly or even Weak. It took me a year and a half to tell my work worrying that they would feel the same, the only reason I finally told them was because I didn't make it into work for a couple of days due to worrying. I'm only 26 and I worry that people will tell me 'at your age what have you got to worry about'!!!!
I do hope that this group will help me face up to my possible condition and any advice would be greatly appreciated..
