Ive used other forums , however i think this may be better for my questions , I suffer with anxiety and depression and have panic attacks. I have tried sertraline , mirtazipine now on venlafaxine at 150mg ( recently doubled from 75mg) - I had been waiting to hear bk from a CBT referal which i did this week . I have my first consultation next week on the phone , im absolutely terrified, I have had to have a fair bit of time off work , a 6 week stint and the odd day here and there , work are good and i generally can just do what i feel i can , I have to have a meeting next week to document everything , which ive had to get medical records for etc . I dont know anythign about the CBT , what do i tell them ? its hard as i have a fear of talking on the phone unless its a certain handful of people so this is a huge issue for me.
Also ive recently niticed byu the evening im mega agitated , i felt so anxious and agitated i didnt realise ive gauged all my arms by scraching whilst watching tv
I also have got worse with cleaning / bleaching and quite obsessed with writing lists , and re writing for instance if i write a ' to do list ' eg. Hoover , polish , mop --- i then may polish , so rather than cross off ' polish' i re- write the list with the 2 remaining and so forth I even write down if i have just one thing to do !! - its not until i stop and think i relaise im doing it
im finding i cant relax until everything is done , but because i feel so low getting things done is so hard -s o its such a vicious circle
im terrified of the cbt , and dunno how long it will take etc
