I have suffered from anxiety/depression on and off for over a year,the diagnosis coming at the start of this year and then it going away for a while and coming back even more intense recently. i lived abroad for over two years and my condition was 'triggered' while away due to several factors but i overcame it with a little help from AD medication.everything was ok up until August when the symptoms were triggered yet again by a stressful event,in days after this my anxiety was a living hell,my appetite vanished and i felt generally unwell and had this burning sensation over my body-mainly down my arms. i had never expereinced the burning sensations before!
Anyway i moved back home two weeks ago as things were getting too stressful and my mental and physical health was drained. last week i was a lot better and relaxed,i went out for lots of drinks with friends-which was good fun-but resulted in the worst two day hangover i have ever had,the anxiety went through the roof so to speak. since the weekend my symptoms have got worse and worse,i have found myself rolling around in bed every night since monday with insomnia and disturbing thoughts-to the point where i freak myself out into thinking im psychotic. my skin is on fire,i get dizzy,agitated and my appetite is vanishing. as the week has went on its making me depressed and dont see any way out! im supposed to be leaving for Oz in January for a year out but i cant even find any positives in that. id really appreciate some advice on how to calm myself down,my plan is to go and see the doctor on monday but monday seems like lifetime away right now
