Hi. I guess i just need to get it all off my chest to people who can relate/understand!! (Its rare!)
So my anxiety level has been creeping up for the past 8 months.... the last time it was extreme was 5 years ago and i have not taken meds for 4 years now.
I knew it was creeping back to its old ways but i was in denial... it will go away soon right? WRONG.
The past 4 weeks it has been so bad i have struggled in everyway possible... but it seems mostly at work
I work as a carer and it got to the point i was in a panic people were going to have an accident or i would accidentally hurt someone when helping them. I could smell burning and believed the place would catch fire just to give you the gist of things i have been a nervous reck.
At home i constantly check the gas cooker and plug sockets. When i walk the dog i think im being followed.
I went to the doctors a week ago today and was started on 50mg sertaline. At the moment im nit really seeing a positive change luckily i have only had a couple if side effects.
Now im panicing.... im due back to work in a week. Am i really going to be well enough? I have bills to pay and dont get sick pay apart from statutory suck pay 88quid a week :O
So sorry to rant on just needed to get it off my chest. I have support from my partner but he doesnt really understand
