after my anxiety disorder getting increasingly worse and effecting work and uni and home life, i've decided to let people know the extent to my problem. this is a big deal for me as its something i've hidden for years. my doctor has signed me off sick for 2 weeks and i'm going to take this time to think about what i'm going to do and the steps i'm going to take in order to help make myself well. i need an action plan for support from uni, i'm going to start painting, i'm going to think about whether i should quit my job and only concentrate on uni. and although all of these things are good and well, i feel like there's so much work to do, my doctor has changed my tablets again, beta blockers didnt work and now shes given me a different kind of antidepressants. is there light at the end of the tunnel? i also spoke to my older sister last night, finally, she doesn't really believe mental illness exists, well shes never experienced it (lucky for her). she brought up that i might be bipolar, as my mum was, should i tell my doctor this? i knew my mum was mentally ill when i was young but i wasn't aware of what was causing her illness, will this be significant?
