I don't know what to do. I have been suffering from very bad anxiety for a few years. No one knows and I struggle to tell anyone. Everyone sees me as a happy confident person. But inside I'm screaming. I question everything I do and don't see how things will ever improve. I struggle to keep relationships as I always self doubt that I am good enough. I know I should seek professional advice but I am too ashamed

    Hello loso,

    If you want to get better you really do need to seek professional help.

    There is absolutely nothing to be ashamed of, unfortunately mental health is suck a little talked about subject because a lot of people feel the same 😏

    I promise that with help you can get better. Do you have a good GP?? X x

      Thank you for your response. I know I need to i just struggle too. To everyone I am normal and wouldn't have a care in the world but deep down I want to burst. I have a great job, my own home a loving family and great friends, but i still feel such a failure and worry all the time. I really dont know why. I have looked on line and it says there isn't much a doctor can do. I have tried exercising and meditating but it doesn't lessen the anixtiy. I am hoping this forum will help and maybe I will fel less alone smile. X

      You are definitely not alone!!

      Your doctor can refer you to speak to someone and might even suggest meds...I used to rule them out too, but I went on the ma few years ago and they changed my life. I was well for over 3 year and recently after a stressful period I am back on meds again...I'm pretty sure I might stay on for life now x
