So I've had anxiety issues for 20 yrs . Tried different medications on and off for the last 14 yrs
with varying degrees of success. However I was never offered any type of counselling and instead used avoiding techniques.
It's only in the last year that I've tried to get help with the route of my actual problems. I'm still waiting for cbt etc. But have been using this time to do lots of research.
So by doing this research I've actually become more anxious and more depressed . If only I had done this 20 yrs ago I wouldn't be in the mess I'm in. Thx to the Internet it's now much easier to do research. I know longer go on holiday if it involves flying. I also have relationship issues among many other things.
So if I can give any advice to anyone don't do what I have done. I know I have to now undo the last 20 yrs of my avoidance technique and it's a scary thought.
I'm currently of from work due to and ongoing back injury and after a visit to hospital yesterday I've been informed that I will have to have surgery.
Being self employed tiler I can no longer do my job and most days Im now stuck at home bored. So I've had plenty of time to do research.
Please peolple seek help and try to get to the route of your anxiety....
Wishing you all the best
