    Hi Sarah....I'm so sorry you're struggling....this is such a difficult thing to go through, isn't it? My anxiety is absolutely through the roof the last two days....I'm back to being convinced that something truly horrifying is wrong with me (it's meningitis this time around). The only advice I can offer is to try and relax (easier said than done, I know!).....and know that you're not alone. Sending positive thoughts your way....try to not fret. Xx

    Aw bless ya... What was the meeting for? Was it for CBT? If so you will find it very helpful if you can get over your initial nerves... No one will judge you or hold stuff against you. They are there to help, and assuming it's a good therapist, brilliant at their job... It will get better x

      Hi Paulette have you had the scan?  If so, did it show anything?  Isn't anxiety the worst?  So difficult to deal with.  Hours of feeling jittery and not in control.  I had depression for over 20 years, and when doctor got me off anti depressants the anxiety came back, but I am scared to go back on medication and trying to cope as best I can.  I had labyrinthitis once too, and I have positional vertigo now.  I live alone and I find it difficult to cope.  I take herbal tablets, but don't think they are helping much, but I keep hoping.  Are you on medication?    Oh yes we just wish the anxiety would go away.

      I have read books, looked on line, tried all the things suggested, but nothing helps.

      Let us know how you are.

    I am here for a chat Sarah.  I know exactly how you feel, but let me reassure you about counselling.  A counsellor is well trained and everything is confidential and they are trying to help you.  I know it is difficult, because I found it hard to talk to a stranger too.  You don't need more stress.  Let us try and cheer each other up.  I had a terrible night with panics and anxiety and difficult to cope today.  I try to look at positive things.  Anxiety so difficult to cope with.  What do you want to talk about?  

    Are you in the UK or USA?
