1st had anxiety early teens saw child psychologist it worked
Couple of years later I t came back but I didn't know it was anxiety as I now know it but I kept this my problem.
Coped somehow for next 12 years or so but with it getting worse and worse.
Blew up massively wife took me to doctors who diagnosed acute anxiety put me on sertraline 50 mg and I went to 6 group counselling sessions.
Again worked thought the pills were the magic answer again ok for about 12 months even came off meds.
But back again it came so back on meds which I have now been on pretty constantly for the last 7-8 years.
They do give me a foothold now but don't stop the anxiety or occasional panic attacks.
I have had another couple of talking therapy bouts but with no lasting impact.
Currently I now feel I am struggling again and it is impacting on my relationship with my wife and I feel I am withdrawing from life such as leisure activities friends Tec.
Currently trying to organise more counselling and thinking of discussing different meds feeling really down am I ever going to beat this.
Anyone having similar times or found the way through
