I have a query for anyone who struggles with severe anxiety. I have a friend who is going through this and I want to be able to help her, but she has closed herself off from just about everyone apart from her husband, who is having to be her carer. I sent her a small present a couple of weeks ago, and he said she had a bad reaction to it, being emotionally overwhelmed.
Have any of you had episodes like this? If so, was there anything that anyone else could do to reassure you or help you to feel better?
