Im a 21 year old male, who has suffered with anxiety since I can remember. Firstly, I would like to say that its refreshing too see so many people can be open and honest about their conditions on here - it has already opened my eyes to anxiety and other disorders and I only registered 5 minutes ago!
I can remember when I was a lot younger, this feeling of anxiety would take over and all I would want is to be close to somebody at home, either my parents or grand parents, and until this point I could not relax. I would also be awake at night worrying about things. It was only when ive grown up that ive been able to relate that feeling to anxiety.
I am still a sufferer now, and I went back to the doctors last week and he gave me Propanolol 40mg to be taking 3 times a day or as and when. I do feel a lot calmer, I still have a certain level of uncomfortability but the feeling does not get out of control.
I do work full time, and have an average group of friends. But my question to you, is what else do you do to manage your anxiety? Other than medication? Have any of you been for any counselling or cognitive behavioural theraphy?
