Hello to all of you! I am a new member of the site and actually also a newcomer here in the UK. I have recently started an MA course. Moving to a foreign country has been a very difficult for me to take as I suffer from anxiety disorder. But this university is a great chance for my professional development and everybody said that I would be throwing away my whole future if I declined that offer. So, here I am! And to tell you the truth ... so far so good ... at least until some days ago when I came down with a flu. Went to the GP and prescribed me antibiotics (penicillin VK). I must say that my illness symptoms have subside but I now got some stomach issues. And of course I became panic stricken again: afraid of getting some short of allergic reaction (can this be happening after two days that I'm taking this medicine?) and stuff like that. I know that is probably my panic talking here - the doctor reassured my that nothing is going to happen by taking these pills but ... I'm just scared and as I am alone in this country - away from home - I guess I just wanted to share my fear ...
