I have had a spell 4-6 weeks where I felt that I was really moving forward with my anxiety and panic attacks. I was at the stage where I was for most of the time did not even noticing anxiety. I was planning activities that would take me out of my comfort zone such as trips that would mean that I would have to stay away from home. During this recent period I have done really well at my job and have been assigned very important work by my boss.
I have over the last few days been on a downward spiral due to the fact that I have felt ill with a cold. I have felt very anxious and panicky especially during the early evening between 6pm -8.30pm. During these periods I have broken down into tears and become terrified that my wife will leave me. I have suffered from anxiety and panic attacks for just over a year and since that time I have had periods when I seemed to be getting better and then seem to fall on my face.
I did a post earlier this week and had some very kind replies. A suggestion was that I should have Acceptance of the situation. I thought that I understood this but am not so sure now. I would welcome any help.
