I have been suffering with anxiety for over a year. It first started as a result of quite a few stressful events in my life. My anxiety has led me to feeling very fatigued with no energy at all. I have a consent feeling of mucus in my throat which makes me gag. I am a shadow of my former self. It has resulted in me having lengthy amounts of time off work, which in turn is putting me under threat of loosing my job. I've hardly been able to do anything socially and even when I do it is like climbing Everest and takes just as much energy out of me. I keep telling myself that if I keep doing as much as I can and struggle and force myself to work I will eventually get over this but it doesn't seem to be happening. I love my job and I have worked hard for it. Part of me is scared to accept that this anxiety will always be part of me because I fear I will have to give up my job. I would do anything to get my life back. I feel as though I have surviving, struggling through each day rather then living. I have m good weeks where I feel ok and then I have weeks where I feel worse. When I have a good week I get m hopes up that I am getting over this and then I fall even harder when a bad week comes along. I have been having CBT with not much effect and now am on Escitalopram. I hope it will help !
