Hope everyone had a lovely christmas and all the best for 2013.
I am a little nervous coming on here. I need to see if anyone suffers this (purgatory) this is the only way I can describe the feeling I have experienced for many years. I am 30 and have a little boy who is 3.5 years now and is the apple of my eye. I have a very high pressured job, which entails 40-45hr week. I have suffered from Aniexty for many years and I am at my wits end on how I can best this.
I always worry, doesnt matter what it is, were or who. It beats me all the time. I just need to learn how to cope. I tend to worry about work which is 99% of why I worry. I need this job to keep a roof over our heads, so I tend to get on with it. Which then causes issues at home with my partner as I always have a face tripping me when I have had a bad day, I am very short tempered with my family and I am always very restless. I always think that Iam going to lose my job? Have I said something I shouldnt have? Read into everything and think the worse?
Some days are great, were i think YES I have nothing to worry about today,then something will happen and BANG my day has turned into a nightmare. I tend to put myself out of a situation as I know I will start to worry. I tend to have worrys about when I go out (socially)e.g thinkong about new year.
I have been to my GP about this and he just gave me medication, which I am scared to take, I waited 6 mths for CBT session and the lady who was with me, was dreadfull, all she did was make me read leaflets, and asked me questions but didnt give me any reason why I felt like this or how to deal with these feeling, plus she gave me home work!!!!
I have a loving family,no money worries and some great family and friends, but I would like someone to talk to a bout this or help with copying mechanisms. What do I do???? This is ruining my life.
Look forward to hearing your thoughts
