Hello. I’ve suffered anxiety on and off since I had my first panic attack aged 14. Recently I’d been doing well, had cut down on medication and was looking forward to buying my own place. I should have realised that uncertainty at work, a big house move, issues with self-esteem would cause a bit of a storm and I’ve had 3 pretty bad weeks following a big work project. I’ve just gone to the doctor and we’ve decided I’ll go back up on my meds. I’m trying to see it as a blip not a failure, but it is hard! Living with constant anxiety is so exhausting, I’m hoping the medication will help me cope better.
