Change in my life making me feel out of control

Hi, new here and could do with some advice. I suffer with anxiety (and have received treatment for PTSD) and recently I have experienced a lot of change in my life including new house & new job. For the past year i've been lucky to have great support from my friends due to a sudden bereavement and now I suppose I am starting to move on with my life as much as I can. The problem is ever since I've left my comfort zone (and I suppose the intense support from my friends) my anxiety levels have peaked to an all time high and whatever I do, I can't seem to get it under control - I feel like I'm constantly on edge, I'm argumentative, I avoid social situations I usually enjoy and I keep getting coughs and colds and feel generally run down. So I suppose I'm just wondering if anyone has any advice - I feel guilty talking to my friends/partner/family as they have had to put up with supporting me for so long. I'm stuck for ideas of what to do - I feel like I'm going a bit mad to be honest... Any advice for reducing this 'out of control' feeling would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Maybe you need time to settle in, a big move like you have made is one of the most stressful things a person can do plus on top of that you had a bereavement to deal with. You need to give yourself time.
