I'm new to this forum. Hope this is ok. Ive had social anxiety/panic attacks and depression on and off since age 18. At the moment the panic attacks are manageable but I think I have GAD, i just feel on edge/anxious/worried all the time, always fearing the worst. It's overwhelming and interfering with my life massively. I have just ignored my kids for the last 3 hours whilst I sat in my room and cried, feel awful. My main fear is rejection and feeling left out and I have had a breakdown today as I found out some friends were getting together and didn't ask me. What I feel is completely out of proprotion, it feels utter betrayal as if my husband has had an affair, I feel so hurt, and I know deep down this is disproportionate. Im continually scared of rejection and finding out other people have got together without me, but I even feel hurt if I barely know them and so shouldn't have been invited. Do i sound crazy? Im not sure what is going on with me but I feel I need help. I'm sure this isn't normal. Should i see a doctor? I think Im going to. Any help gratefully received. Thank you.
