    Hello shannonlea

    If not already talk to your GP if not already and explain your Anxiety to him He will decide a good way forward fr you

    Are you still at school, how old are you ?

    Yes you may have anxiety, although your GP is the only one for a diagnosis

      The best person to control anxiety is yourself

      I use relaxation Techniques and they do help.

      Try the Mindfullness Technique, you will find it is a way to live and it includes different techniques or different conditions. You can get books and tapes and your GP may be able to help with tapes or a CPN who will be able to help

    Anxiety is draining, it pumps adrenaline around our bodies and it uses a lot of energy both physically and mentally so it's very common to feel weak and strange and to have no energy especially after being in a situation that has provoked our anxiety to increase.

    To quote a favourite therapist of mine 'These are normal reactions under the circumstances and you could hardly expect to feel any other way'.

    You have to find a balance between trying to do things and resting yourself so that you are not flogging yourself on to the point of an exhaustion that adds fear to fear.

    I have two audio books that help me greatly to understand anxiety, nervous fatigue and how to cope with it all, I can't print the names of them here because we are not allowed to and my post would be moderated but I will send you a private message, if you haven't tried them already I really think they will be a great help to you but for now be assured that this is normal,you are not alone in feeling like this and you can recover.

      Thank you so much for the reply,how do you send private messages? Also I was thinking of taking a Xanax to get me through this hump but am scared to take it because I don't know how it will make me feel or if it will make me feel worse

      Just click on the name of the person you want to message and you will see the option there, I have messaged you about the books, it should tell you that you have a message if you look at the top of the screen under your own username.

      Xanax is a benzodiazepine, you probably already know that they can be very addictive, what you may not know is that for some people prolonged use of benzo meds can worsen the anxiety.

      Short term though they can be very useful, they are safe and well tolerated and will likely just make you feel calm and a bit sleepy.

      I take valium, that's a benzo, i have taken it for years and it's become a bit of a nightmare for me now despite only taking it as directed but short term they are fine, clearly most people become tolerant to them after a whil then they don't work but just as a short term thing they are okay.

      Generally the advice is no more than 2-4 weeks of use and try to only use them when all other options have failed and you are really desperate.

      Try not to worry about immediate side effects though,as I said the benzos are very well tolerated by most people, I only dislike benzos so much because idiot doctors kept me on them for too long but occassional or short term use can be very beneficial and I must admit that nothing has ever calmed me down as effectively as a benzo med.

    Hi, hope ur feeling beta now.

    I too have had those times where u almost can't explain how ur feeling other than weird and not in a good way.

    Anxiety is a major problem and can cause all sorts of horrible feelings. I've tried to explain it to my other half and he looks at me as if I'm making stuff up. He doesn't get it and no one will till they've experienced it.

    Keep going and trying to push ur own limits, don't be scared to try going out again

    U will get there xxx

      Yes definitely.

      It feels like it will never go away.

      I was doing so well then mine flared up again and I'm left thinking will I ever feel normal again so I know exactly what ur experiencing.

      I find it helps just taking each day as it comes and if the day is too long take each hour as it comes.

      Let me know how u get on xxx
