My anxiety is getting worse and I don't seem to be able to control it.


Hi Everybody,

I am new to this forum and I am just finding my way around it. I have read a few of the comments that some of you have been making and I really can sympathise with you all as I feel the same myself. I seem to be getting worse and don't know what to try next. I worry about absolutely everything even stuff that is not that urgent. A few years ago had some extremely bad pannic attacks and thankfully with the help of my GP I came out of that and I really don't want to go there again. I look forward to conversing and hope that by joining up with you helps me to sort myself out.

Take care and good luck to you all... Patsy

Hi 123Patsy I am also a newbie here, it's a great forum with lots of helpful discussions and supportive people who really understand.

I am a chronic worry wart and my bf has anxiety through the roof so we deal with each other everyday. I'm lucky I have some one to work through my stuff with in real time. But I have been alone most of my life and drank to cover up my pain.

Hope you are having a good day and welcome to the forum! Feel free to post anything and we will try to help you out.

Hi Littletraveller,

Thank you for taking the time to reply to me. I agree it is a great forum and it is nice to 'speak' with people who are having like problems.

I live alone, and although I have no problem with that, there are times that we all need somebody to talk to so it's nice to be here with people who understand why we feel like we do.

I hope that all goes well with you, look after yourself.


Hi 123patsy, youl will find lots of like minded people on here, everyone try's to help each other. Lots of good advice and tips to share. You can get better, I did 😀 I may have a little wobble occasionally but I'm able to stop it getting out of control👍So hang on in there. I look forward to seeing you around. Take care😀🙏🏻


Hi Angep,

Thank you for taking the time to reply to me. So pleased for you to hear that you have managed to improve your health. It's very comforting to be in a forum where everybody is experiencing similar issues and have the good heart to try and help each other. A while ago I suffered panic attacks for what seemed like forever and for a while they did go away, which said to me that they are not going to last forever. I do not get them so often now but unfortunately the anxiety and worry is always with me. I am really going to try and get the better of it all. I try and think positive and tell myself that if I try hard enough and believe it will get better, then it will. It's tough but I will never give up trying to get through this and be back to normal again.

I wish you good luck and hope all stays well for you.

Take care

I've come from being so so ill with crippling panic and at a point where I just wanted out of this world to being a very happy and contented lady I'm not 100% I'm not sure I ever will be but I can do most things and go most places now I have the odd wobble but hey ho I'd rather that than the misery I once suffered

If I can help you in any way please message me Id be only to pleased to help I wish this forum had been around when I was so poorly I was so ashamed and alone

Wishing you all the very very best with your recovery xx
