In a rut!! Could use advice

Posted , 4 users are following.

Hi all first post ever in here. I was diagnosed with general anxiety about two years ago. I beat it with the help of cognitive behavioural therapy. I got it again now. I still remember all my CBT but it doesn't seem to be working. I was in a car crash on Jan the 1st this year. It was my fault I slid in ice and hit another car. My anxiety instantly kicked in! I'm racked with guilt. I'm not sleeping properly. I keep getting flashbacks. The police want to interview me about what happened. So now I'm worrying even more. Got that dizzy feeling back again. I know I should start exercise again but I really have no motivation. Any advice? Thanks alot james

    Have you tried any medication? I know it's not the answer for everything but it definitely takes the edge off post traumatic types of anxiety which is what you seem to be suffering with since your car accident. Also try and see someone for more CBT or mindfulness.
