I wanted to ask you all what you do to cope with anxiety, if you suffer from it. I have always been prone to being anxious but recently I have been suffering from it far more frequently and I am getting really bad attacks of anxiety.
I wouldn't class them as panic attacks but I get a horrible sick feeling in my stomach, my hear start racing and I start feeling really anxious, like dreading something unpleasant is going to happen. This is happening several times a day and although I can still function I am getting really fed up with it. There is nothing going on in my life that I can put it down to either, which makes it worse. It's affecting my ability to sleep and relax.
Even just thinking about it brings it on, making it a self-fulfilling prophecy. I have had a few months of stress but touch wood everything has sorted itself out and I should be feeling far more relaxed and chilled than I am.
I don't really want to take more meds but I am seeing my GP next week and will mention it. If I have to take something to help me feel less anxious I will, has anyone got any recommendations about meds or relaxation techniques I could try? Many thanks.
