Anxiety again

Posted , 4 users are following.

I had really bad anxiety attacks and depression about 1 years ago, after trying several meds without success my GP put me on Mirtrazapine which helped with the insomnia that I suffered with and subsequently help my to cope during the day. I managed to secure a temporary job and all appeared to be going well. But I was paid off at the end of December and I'm finding the anxiety alarm bells starting to ring. I'm 62 years of age, so finding another job is not that easy. I'm so scared that I'm going to go back to the way I was last year. Anyone offer any support?

    Try to relax, if you learn Relaxation Techniques and Breathing Exercises they may keep you calm, if you are not sure of what Reaxation technique to learn the one preferred is Mindfulness, Books available from Amazon or the Internet

    As mentioned, use lots of coping skills to nip it in the bud, Meditation, breathing , affirmations, progressive muscle relaxation, walking, plenty of fluids.

    Make sure you keep talking and sharing your worries, with people

    online, family if you have them and any health professionals you

    see and trust. It may be helpful to try and book in for some CBT or

    counselling to discuss your worries. Like others have said, try

    some meditation if you can manage it and maybe join a community

    group to meet more people. I hope things gets better for you smile
