Hi everyone, I am new to this sort of thing, I have never signed up to a specific support chat group and I'm hoping for a bit of re assurance as I'm pulling my hair out here!! I have had anxiety for a long time now, my doctor has recently offered me cbt which I am certainly great full for! But I just can't see how it is going to work on me, I am anxious all through the day, my body sweats I tremble and shake inside my body I get breathless and my chest feels so tight! I have two little boys and this is not only affecting me its affecting them too as I cannot physically do anything when I get like this it's like I want to run away from the feelings I am getting! I'm in university and have to get up and present Infront of people and I the feeings I get are so out of control I have walked off before and got so upset with myself! The day time is not the worse though as I find night time the hardest, I can't sit on the sofa with my boyfriend and watch TV as I just can not relax because instead of focusing on TV I focus on my breathing and I can't break the habit even when I go to bed! I wake up gasping for air is like anxiety does not give me a break at all and it's generally getting me down and destroying my life I'm only 24, i just want to feel normally!! I've been prescribed tablets from my doctor various time just too scared to take them as I always think that they will kill me ((
