    Dear Rachel, reading your post made me feel like I wanted to give you a big hug. To have such anxiety makes no sense,these feelings we have are so extreme and so consuming that they can completely handicap us and those around us. It's difficult to make others understand how you can have these feelings and be so talented in other ways. Around a year ago I was very unwell and the community psychiatric nurses told me about the 10 minute rule, try doing something for 10 minutes if it doesn't work have a break then when you are able to try something again try something, anything, reading,washing up,going for a walk,anything. At first I thought they had no idea how I was feeling, but after a few days this started to work and I gradually started to get life on track again. Dear Rachel dancing is a wonderful way to express yourself,if you can use dancing to make yourself better. If in any small way this can help you to just start to begin to claim back this life that belongs to you, then start . If things don't go to plan be kind to yourself, there's always tomorrow.written with warm right.
