      I feel just the same, if I’m asked out for tea or coffee I’m anxious the whole time thinking I don’t feel well and want to leave.  It’s got to the point I feel it’s just not worth going out. I can’t understand it as the lovely little tea room is in my village and it’s my sisters I’m with but I still feel the same, they don’t know this as I pretend to be ok as they wouldn’t understand and as iv been like this since 2012 they really don’t want to know anymore they think I’m better now.  I just don’t have a social life anymore as I’m so nauseas too so ratings a nightmare.  Sorry I’m feeling sorry for myself today as had a bad day yesterday xx

      Hi Maria ... just been reading your post. I am post meno the Anxiety I found so bad .. that's how it gets you not wanting to socialise or go out anywhere, to be honest the only thing that has helped me is HRT. Going thru meno I did gets lots symptoms, But post is by far the worst in my experience. I had to stop it twice the anxiety came back awful.

      i know I shouldn't but this actually made me smile and shake my head, because I have felt like you felt on Saturday at every single event, gathering, outing, anything! for so long and just wanted to leave.  I've stopped doing most things, which I shouldn't, but how are you supposed to enjoy anything in this state.  I'm glad you are all here to read similar stories..  and yes, it is awful being like this.

      Wow!!! I have the exact same symtems you describe. Started August 2017. I have had MRI, CAT scans, halter monitor for 30 days and have had all my levels checked I’ve been told all is good. I have seriously been thinking about taking medication prescribed by my pychiatrist (Zoloft) I just don’t want to get any worse. I never know from day to day if I’ll be a mess or just mildly sick. I’m so sorry you have gone through this for so long. Please tell me it has gotten somewhat better. Sincerely Lisa

    You have to push through it by not fighting the feelings but going with it and going out have a distraction phrase to remind yourself you are ok .or. a word or whatever you say to yourself to refocus .you will surprise yourself but little steps just go out for a short time to start.

    Try Spirulina!!!  I've been really anxious not wanting to do things especially when it comes to holidays or big parties, kid sporting events.. Unable to feel myself like I do at home.   So about a week ago I started taking this for other reasons (my hair) BUT low and behold I was actually CALM the days before Easter!  I couldn't believe it because usually I absolutely dread going to these things.  I was a little anxious during our family meal but not like before. I have a few things going on this weekend and I'm not remotely concerned.  It's like a 'go with the flow' type attitude.
