I am a 22 year old female living with anxiety. Iv always been a worrier and worry what people think all the time but this had never affected my mental health. Iv always been a great eater and love going to concerts on holiday abroad and going out socialising.
In October I went on holiday with my current boyfriend and had to phone the doctor to come to my room . Feeling sick shaking sweating and generally must unwell. I just put it down to something I ate or the sun. Returned home and all these symptoms went .
Couple of months later I went to my doctors still complaining of feeling ill, so after months of tablets and endoscopes (which all came back clear) I told my doctor I was convinced , whilst on holiday I had a panic attack.
Since being diagnosed , I'm totally scared of eating in public incase I'm sick infront of everyone and having panic attacks out of my comfort zone . It's not being scared of sock it's the embarrassment. I constantly feel low , tired and want to cry at everyone always thinking "why me? Why is everyone else leading a normal life?" I'm petrified of going back on holiday incase the same thing happens to me again . This constant feeling sick and scared to of going to public places and hating the feeling of being full is getting me down. I just sent to enjoy life again!
I'm currently on Propanolol which calms me down buy doesn't help me emotionally !
I'm just looking for help and advice!
