My anxiety is ruining my life. I wake up every morning with overwhelming feelings of guilt about everything from mistakes I've made in my relationship to how I don't spend enough quality time with my children to how my animals arnt getting enough input. I'm a full time student at university and it's affecting my studies I can't concentrate I'm always on edge. It affects my relationships with everyone. I pick the skin of my lips till they bleed and I don't no I'm doing it I just find myself doing it. The symptoms are terribly worse if I drink alcohol so now I've decided I can't anymore as I just spend the day after crying and thinking how bad I am. I never feel good about myself the anxiety has taken over my life. I've decided to try and remove some of the stress in my life by cutting down on how many animals I've got but now I have the guilt of selling them. I can't handle this anymore. I'm on 25mg sertraline daily it doesn't help. I don't want a higher dose as it makes me feel like I'm on drugs. I have no self control I constantly feel rubbish about my self Ive almost ruined my relationship and I can't connect to my children because I'm always worrying about everything. I'm so unhappy I really can't live like this for the rest of my life. I just want to be able to feel normal I've been like this for years and years since a teen and it's got worse gradually till now at 31 I'm a mess and everything and everyone is suffering.
