I have had, like everyone who has these anxiety atacks, the worst few weeks which I think was brought on by the divorce and mediation I am going through and the recent death of my daughter in law, oh and then my boyfriend who I had been in a relationship for 12 months decided he didnt want to see me anymore. I am slowly learning to identify what the triggers are, also I am on beta blockers. I never realised just how this has affected my whole life and work which is a catch 22 because if I dont go to work I dont get paid which then exacerbates the anxiety as I know I have to go to work (hope that makes sense),
I am learning to take each day as it comes and feel good when I achieve something, taking small steps but also being honest with myself and my family have helped. I know there is no cure and that I have to manage it myself but having support is an important part of ensuring this doesnt consume my life.
