Just a moan as usual!

Posted , 3 users are following.

Here again! I've had anxiety since returning to work after having my daughter 1 year ago. It is ruining my life as I have had to continue to work full time in teaching, which I now feel I cannot do, I take daily medication but can honestly say I haven't had a single day without worry in over a month and I just don't know where else to turn. I've been to see my boss, who assures me things are fine (which of course they are not) and although my husband and family love and support me, I struggle to get through the day without a panic attack and feel so tired because I'm always on edge and anxious. I want to back out of work and hide until things get better but I can't and it makes me feel so alone I can't imagine how I'll keep going. I do though and that is all I can do!

      I've been on Mirtrazapine for the last year up to 45mg but it just isn't working anymore and I don't know why, I'm back at the doctors on Friday though so will ask to review it then!

    Do you feel a diversion in class may help you when stressed ?

    One thing I used was a strong elastic band around my wrist, when I felt stressed I would twang the band on my wrist, you would wear it like a bracelet., they say it works and I used it in my Youth work and when I was giving lectures. It is just an idea

      Thanks for that, I'm ok at work, it's after work that I start to hve problems then I can't stay still, I can't rest and I go over the day working out all the things I did wrong and worry about all the things to come that I can't control. I'm just completely out of control now and I don't know what to do next!

    Have you tried Mindfulness a Relaxation Technique, books can be purchased on Amazon.

    Also you can try Breathing Exersises they will help you reduce your stress levels as will above.

    Good Luck, always around

      Thank you for that, yes I have tried mindfulness which seem to help sometimes, I've spoken to my employer today who was understanding so hopefully I will find my way out soon before things escalate and they make me really poorly. Thanks for your support though, it's always appreciated!
