I last wrote on here 7 months ago, my anxiety was back pretty bad then, now it's possibly the worst I have ever been in my life (had GAD for 22 years now). All of my calming techniques don't work at all and I am feeling completely lost. I have always "managed" my symptoms well and every so often pop into group therapy to keep it up. I finished the latest group only a couple of months ago, honestly I think it made me worse.
I am going through a really stressful time, the company I work for is under offer and has been for a year now, I am now very close to losing my job and my Masters dissertation is also due in December and I am really behind and I have just bought a house, so my feelings of stress are justified just a bit extreme.
I had a monster panic attack last night and I am shaking uncontrollably, my resting heart rate is always above 80bpm (I am quite fit and used to a rate of 60bpm), I can't focus and can't sleep. I have tried circular and square breathing, visualisation/self hypnosis, stretching and yoga, hot baths, no caffiene. Can anyone suggest anything that might help? Please?
Thanks so much
