Hi Everyone, my first time here, and even that is making me anxious.
I have suffered from severe anxiety now, for almost two years. I did seek help, last year, and received therapy in the form of CBT. It helped, no end, but when my follow up was due in January this year, and I was advised follow ups had been cut, I have now, had to re-refer myself.
I am anxious all the time, and even more so with what happened recently. My partner and I discussed having a holiday, in the UK this year. I love the countryside and the peace and quiet would have been a great tonic for me. Despite knowing how I am, with the anxiety, which has been exacerbated by the terror threats, and events going on in Paris and Brussels, and with my flear of flying having returned, my partner, to quote "did something stupid", and booked a trip abroad at the end of April! This has led to my anxiety spiralling out of control. I am constantly upset, as feel hurt that he booked a trip abroad, even though I take into account his heart may be in the right place. I am too terrified to go, will be on a "knife edge" the whole time if I can, and it is just awful. What has made the whole situation worse, is that he is adamant he is going whether I go or not! I am now in a situation where I am scared to go out, to drive, go into a supermarket, and am constantly lookking at threats to the UK and elsewhere.
I don't have anyone to talk to about this, so any kind advice from hereon would be so very much appreciated.
