Hi everyone! Been suffering from GAD for a long time but was under control but now i find its worse than ever partly due to the recent loss of my mum. To get free head that is not worrying about anything these days is a luxury. I worry constantly about different things, the minute i sort out one, another crops up and it seems they are competing with my head. Not to mention the physical sensations associated with this mental torment, left sided chest pains, shoulder, arm pains and tingling feelings on the left side, insomnia and headaches. Still struggling with other worries now there's an addition of health worry which i've managed to banish fairly well in the past but now it's nibbling at me constantly.
Can't even cope well at work had to reduce my hours reluctantly, i had to withdraw from a course last year before my mum died because i could'nt cope due to anxiety. All this makes me feel like i'm failing myself. I used to be an ambitious person who would try anything without giving a second thought but now i'm a bag of nerves which is scary as i feel it's trying to take over my life.
I'm here to get help as i've heard positive stories from other people who are ex-GAD sufferers or those managing well with it. I welcome any positive input from anyone and will take it on board to beat this demon.
