Hey, so I suffer anxiety in different forms (generally and socially) and depression. I was seeing a counsellor who I was referred to by my GP who was supposed to be helping me figure out where my anxiety has stemmed from, my triggers etc. I had a very difficult up-bringing (abused physically and neglected by birth mother, biological father on hard drugs so barely there, l split from my siblings and had about 5 foster homes in a yr before being adopted, bullied through school and mentally abused by adoptive parents) which has left me with zero confidence and low self esteem. I struggle to leave the house alone or with my children and even a walk into town with my husband can leave me feeling extremely anxious... Basically my counsellor hasn't really helped me figure out my triggers etc and has now discharged me as I can no longer make the appointments that were set due to my husbands work hours and the fact I have no one to look after my children. She didn't offer me any phone appointments or someone more flexible and she didn't refer me for CBT when she said she would look into it for me. I now feel very let down and like iv wasted many weeks for nothing I now don't want to go to the doc for fear of being let down again by someone else... There are no anxiety support groups where I am that I know of either but I feel like my anxiety is getting worse.. I feel more anxious than I did before and I keep convincing myself people are breaking Into the house at night any advice will be much appreciated
