Am i Coping ?

i was diagnosed with anxiety in December when i had a "mental break down" i was permanently having these fight or flight feelings bad thoughts etc its taken me till now to kinda adjust to it, but now im terrified of getting that bad again as i was really bad, i had the "im going mental" feeling.

im now on medication for anxiety, depression, heart racing and also sleeping tablets. iv had hypnotherapy and to help me cope, some days i feel ok but most days i feel like i dont want to live like this. i have constant hot flushes, racing heart, bad thoughts and tiredness, id like to think im coping but im still confused and dont know what path im actually on. it scares the hell out of me..... is there anything else that can help me feel "bit normal". im on waiting list for CBT.

  • Hiya sammyjo, I can relate to you, as can most people on here, I have Anxiety for years and sometimes still have moments where I feel like I'm gong crazy, think we just have to take small steps to get through it! I too have a little girl so I need to be strong for her but that's alot easier said than done, I so far haven't managed it and I know I must for her! Here if you need to chat x
