I have suffered with Anxiety for over year now and sometimes its severe and other times I forget I have it! It has had serious implications on my job which I have now resigned from. I go and see a psychotherapist once a week and I am trying CBT with him. It makes a lot of sense but for all the good days, the bad ones seem to out weigh them! For example, I went for a spa day with friends and although I was a little anxious at times, I managed the whole day and had a great time. I then went out for a meal on the same day with about 20 people and I literally could not stand it, we were put in the upstairs part of the restaurant which was pretty cramped (in my opinion) and I just could not stick it out. Although I didn't have a panic attack, I was very light headed, dizzy, finding it hard to swollow and I felt like I was in the room on my own!! I sat there and tried all my CBT stuff and I still had to do a runner. This has such a big impact on my life and I just want to be normal again and get on with day to day tasks. What else can I do to help my self apart from medication and CBT???
