      Yes I have just come back from the doctors and took my first one but I just want some hope to look forward to. It's taken over my life, I am 28 and don't leave my room and even there im still very nervous and anxious and very very alone! No one understands and I've pushed people away cos of it and I'm very very low right now sad

      They do work but May take a few weeks to kick in, but hang on in there with them. I understand how you are feeling , i am also struggling with severe anxiety at the minute and no one really seems to understand, but u have us on here to talk to xx

      Sarah 3 months ago I was like that and did nothing to help myself just layed in bed all day everyday. I was put on 100mg sertraline and been on it for 6 weeks now was a bumpy ride and it still is some days but I am getting up more and moving around and next week going to limit myself a walk down the road and gradually build up to going out like the old me. Good luck on the tablets just give them a few weeks to kick in and work.

      thank you, I also lay in bed all day and comfort eat which has resulted in me putting on weight and adds massively to the anxiety. I have zero confidence I just want to feel like me again I never had any of these problems I just want to be happy but feels so long away. Glad you're feeling better and getting there slowly. Well done you xx

      Thanks Judy, that's a very useful recommendation. I'm going to order the book and cd, especially on seeing it's recommended by Jon Kabat-Zinn. I think many forms of meditation help a great deal with stress and anxiety.
