Having a rough time with anxiety and I believe abit of depression that is being exacerbated by the anxiety. It all started last year after my partner comitted suicide. He killed himself a week before I was due to graduate from university and start a brand new job. Obviously I was very distressed after this happened but chose to not have any time off work, not even a day in the hope that I could work through my emotions and keep busy. Now after being promoted and life starting to get somewhat better I' am probably worse now than when it first happened.
Could it be the fact that the emotional trauma of it all has eventually caught up with me now that I'm deciding to take time off to reflect? I'm experiencing panic attacks on the odd occasion however for the best part of day, every day I' am severly anxious and stressed in regards to my mental state, I just have no idea on how to relax.
My symptoms include chest pain, throbbing head pain, dizziness, lack of motivation, I get no enjoyment from seeing friends anymore because I'm always a nervous wreck with anxiety. If someone makes a loud noise or drops something then I jump a mile, I definetly think my nerves have been damaged from this experience if that is even possible?
How do I get out of this rut of life before I give up entirely?
