Severe Anxiety - need advice. by cm409 on Wed Oct 17, 2012 6:57 pm
I am 20 and female and suffer from severe anxiety and panic disorder. I am currently in my second year at university, living away from home and not coping well with this 'illness'. There has been many situations in my life where anxiety has kicked in however hasnt effected me as much as it does now. Within my first year of university it was all fun and games (drinking a lot like a typical student) and I feel as though this may have triggered how I am now. I came home early at Christmas and also at the end of my first year due to being signed off by a doctor. I have been on anti-depressants to help control my panic attacks however was then taken off of them and I am now on beta-blockers. These have helped and since I have been on them I havnt experience a panic attack since. However, my anxiety is still growing and getting worse. I have only just started my second year and I worry that this may cause me to having to give up. I have also worked from the age of 13, mainly waitressing, and over the recent summer I have to resign due to not being able to use public transport due to my anxiety. I also have a girlfriend who I have now been with for a year and a half who really does help me and is completely my rock. My illness puts our relationship under a lot of pressure but she still hasnt given up on me, I am also worried that at some point she will feel fed up and give up. I completely rely on her and I know that this needs to change.

I am now in therapy/counciling and have help from my parents/girlfriend and also from my university. It is safe to say I am getting all the help I need. I completely understand that I need to help myself before others can help me but I am failing to do so. I havnt been to many lectures so far and I try to lock myself away from the rest of my house mates (6 other girls). I have gained this fear of feeling anxious therefore just stay in my room and go out only when I have to (food shopping etc). When I leave the house I will feel sick and tired from the moment I leave to the moment I return. I am fed up and I don't want to give up but I also have no idea what I am meant to do at this stage. If there is any advise please give it, be as harsh as you want as right now that is probably what I need.

Closed doors by ringkichard0811 on Fri May 26, 2017 1:36 pm
From 6:30 AM Monday to 7 PM last night, we had been awake. The more fatigued I became, the further inward I traveled. I saw the deception presented to us as reality yield to our sickened, twisted mind...

I'm a little blue today. The reason is a little too private to talk about here. I was a little surprised at the way it affected me, though; I wonder if it's the estrogen kicking in. I've noticed some other...

After seeing many stories about struggles and setbacks, internal angst and equivocation, the decisiveness and speed of all this is dizzying, but very good to see! Hugs.

In my experiences with psychiatrists and now my latest "doctor" that i just ditched - they make up whatever the hell they want to.

I am assuming its all about both the money and to cover each...
