Hi everyone, I have suffered from quite severe periods of anxiety in the past-both during life events,work stresses but also out of no where when I feel there is nothing to look forward to ! The combination of insomnia, panic anxiety and feelings of hopelessness to be honest terrify me! Feels like a rollercoaster and I can't get off. For the past five years I have kept well but about two weeks ago the anxiety started again and along with it the catastrophization of life. I manage to get to work and function but want to run away. I have a supportive partner but his work means he is away the odd night and weekend. After a week of horrendous insomnia I got some sleeping tablets but then made an emergency appointment with a private doctor as I had terrifying panic attack. He prescribed Citalopram which I have had before which I started but after a few days I felt almost suicidal and panic stricken. He then prescribed Diazapam-very short course to use as and when. I am sleeping slightly better but the whole situation is compounded by watching my mum be consumed by dementia and my father refuse support. Also approaching a milestone birthday and probably menopausal and usual worrys about children etc. Any advice would be welcome and best wishes to everyone using this page,
