Hi okay well i have had anxiety most of my life and it comes in phases, i now feel extremely panicked in any situation where i feel trapped or out of control - which even sometimes means a simple conversation with someone as i feel i cannot get out of it, for the last 7 months it has been really bad to the point where i cannot be in class and when i do go to school i sit in a room alone, i rarely leave the house or see my friends or family. I have been getting help but nothing is really working, i was put on propanolol for a couple of weeks but have now been switched to sertraline. Today was my first day taking it and i am terrified of all of the side effects, i have a crippling fear of vomiting and that is part of my problem with anxiety as i constantly feel sick due to anxiety and then i panic about being sick which makes mt anxiety worse (its a vicious cycle). Vomiting is one of the possible side effects of sertraline along with many other scary symptoms, and the fact that there are withdrawel symptons etc too just freaks me out and is making me so so so panicked.
If anyone has any advice or help I'd really appreciate it
