Hi everyone. This is my first post. I was diagnosed with severe anxiety and OCD last April. I also have really bad health anxiety. Thinking I'm having a heart attack, choking, brain tumour a DVT any kind of symptom and I think I am going to die. It took about 7 months for me to get NHS therapy and my therapist is great, but my therapy will be stopping in a few weeks and I'm scared. I have progressed as last year for about 3 months the only places I went were my GP or A&E as I worried so much about my health. I lost my job through being off work, that was so stressful and really caused more anxiety. I just wonder if this is as good as it gets ?? Will I ever get back to so called normal ?? Some days I think I can cope and other days I feel helpless/hopeless. I also have really bad ringing in my ears and when I have a bad panic I feel hot all over and pins and needles and think I am having a stroke. My Dr says it will eventually go, but when ?? I am trying to go out and do things, live a productive life but at the moment going to the shop is a trial. When I think about working, which I really want to do I can't imagine going for an interview. I can't even get through a day to day conversation without crying. I wish everyone good health. I know it's hard and I will get there, I need to but you know how it is when you feel so desperate.
