Where do I start?

Hi, my name is Kylie, I am new here. I am trying somehow to change my life, as my anxiety cripples me. I have a constant tight jaw, raised shoulders due to being in flight or fight mode. I worry about everything and anything. I can't say no to people and have a feeling of guilt and impending doom constantly. I have in the past taken medication, have had a full year of CBT, have read numerous self-help books and tried meditation and mindfulness. I have been to self esteem classes via the NHS, however felt so sorry for everyone, I couldn't face going again. I overeat and pick at my skin constantly, due to nerves. I just feel nervous constantly, I am on medication but it still doesn't go away. The main thing I worry about is something happening and not being able to cope with it and I feel that thing is going to happen anytime now....but I don't know what that thing is?? sorry I don't understand it so don't expect anyone else too? I don't even know how you can answer my post because I don't know what I am asking? :-/?

I am the same way, always worrying about something horrible happening, imagining it happening and feeling as if I can’t cope. Have you been under major stress lately? Do you go to school or work?

you are not alone. Many of us have similar stories. Have you read any of Claire Weekes books?
