So i've suffered from anxiety throughout my life, it had always been quite mild. Then i became depressed last year when i left school, i had nothing to focus my mind on or get up for .. so things began to creep up on me. Everyday since then my anxiety has become worse, i no longer feel that depressed .. i'm attending univeristy in september or supposed to be .. but with this anxiety it just seems so unrealistic. I feel sick every minute of the day .. heightened when i go out. I get panic attacks because i think i am going to be sick. Does anyone else feel this way? Or have felt this way? I feel like i can't focus on anything but feeling sick. I can't eat .. i haven't eaten anything in 3 days .. the thought and smell of food literally gets me. I have been to the doctors .. she said it was anxiety but i also have high blood pressure which i'm going back tomorrow to get tested. But does anxiety for you cause these problems? Can anxiety be the cause of high blood pressure? What have you done/doing to overcome this. Any answers would be great. Thankyou
