I've had anxiety for 10 years without any help, just kept my mouth shut and dealt with it the best way I could. It did effect massive things in my life, relationships, jobs, my CBT and driving test but I managed just. I now live alone, I work in a high pressured job with some just lazy nasty people which has really made it 10* worse.
Yesterday I was brave and did the toughest thing I have ever done. I went to the doctors, fully anxious and asked for help. He didn't laugh at me or fob me off. He tried to understand and admitted it's a tough thing for them to try and assist with but said he wanted to start me off with citalopram 10mg at night. I took my first one last night and admit apart from feeling sick, shaky and just a little strange I don't think there is masses of difference yet. (Headaches and no sleep the normal)
I also have to speak to a counselor to get to the cause of everything but just with the diagnosis I feel relief!
