hello all, have been seeing a counselling for 10 sessions now and my anxiety seems to have got worse. I now wake up after 4 hours sleep every night and lie and sweat and think until it's time to get up. Last Thursday I thought I had nervous breakdown, but turned out to be a really bad anxiety attack. The problem I really have difficulty with is trying to think my way out of my condition. I never seem to make progress and get drained and more anxious. I don't know if I'm supposed to fight it or let it go as neither seems to work.
After Thursday great day, I gave in and went and asked for help from gp who has started me on a course of sertrline. I didn't want to do this but I caved in as it got to bad and scared me. I feel so lost at the moment, I do t know what direction to go. The lack of good quality sleep is getting me down. I have some good hours of great normality but know that it's short lived and sure enough, the thought cycle comes back. any advice and support would be greatly appreciated
