Hi I'm new , love reading other people's story, here's mine 😊
Diagnosed with having severe Anxiety last year, had all ECG and bloods done (all good)
Put on sertraline (50mg) after a major melt down where I was screaming and hitting myself and feeling like I was going mad !! It took weeks for the meds to work and finally they did. I went back to work after being off for 3 months.
I still have really bad days, where I feel dizzy, palpy, sick and whooshing and fear it all coming back, but I breath through it all and just rest ( like I have had to do all weekend)
I know I need CBT as I still worry an awful lot about my little family, and I still worry that
I am going to pass out or something dreadful is going to happen to me, so that is my next step.
But yes I do feel better, I cope better and one day hope to get rid of this awful thing 😋
Good luck out there, I will keep reading blogs and hope you will chat back to me too 🙏🏻
