I have been suffering with anxiety attacks and constant worrying for about 6 months now. I use to be able to control the worries but now it is getting so out of control that I making myself ill and I am scared to go into work. I drive to work every morning in fear and get emotional the closer I get to work.
When I get to work I can't focus or concentrate at work due to the anxiety of failure. I have got into my head that I am not good enough for this job and that I am out of my depth. I put things off at work and let things build up because I am frightened to speak to people or that I will say the wrong thing. I try to do a hundred things a once and end up not finishing anything. My mind is so cluttered that I can not prioritise things. I really just want to get in my car and run away from everything.
All I want to be is a normal guy that can support his family and hold down a job without anxiety getting in the way.
I know there a lot worse of people in the world to me but I don't want to go my whole life struggling with anxiety and being a burden on my wife.
I am having counselling which is helping slowly but I am wondering if drugs are the answer?
Has anyone got any advice to stop these negative thoughts and anxiety souring out of control? How do I learn to concentrate and focus better without anxiety creeping in?
