I'm 19 and have suddenly been hit hard by my anxiety disorder. I've had it for a long time but in the last week or so, with no apparent triggers, it has come back stronger than ever.
I've got to the point now where I feel so overcome with sickness, worrying, feeling faint etc.. that I can hardly leave my house. I know I experienced some of these feelings for the first time a few years ago when I had my first relationship and found I couldn'd cope with meeting my boyfriend or feeling at all relaxed but suddenly now, when I have just got the realtionship I dreamed about and have got comfortable meeting friends, these feelings have come back.
I cannot cope with this at all and have no idea what to do. My mum is currently undergoing treatment for aggresive breast cancer and I cannot support her in any way because of this and she isn't well enough to put up with this fear I now have.
Please help me - I love my life, friends and boyfriend and have such an amazing degree planned for next year but I feel like I'm ruining everything with this. I'm scared I won't be able to kee myself safe when the next panic or anxiety attack happens.
Thanks you so much in advance xx
