    Hi Tanya.

    I know that is how it feels. That's what anxiety/depression does to you,how it makes you feel.

    I can promise you that this is temporary. Slowly it will come away in layers. Like peeling a onion. Things will get better. It takes time but as the weeks go by your thinking will start to resemble how it once was...your focus and concentration will return...you won't feel so dizzy and confused.....that feeling like you are looking through a sheet of glass when you are with people,that will return to normal.

    The only advice I can give you is to try and keep your life as normal as possible. Carry on with all that anxiety tagging along for the ride. It will feel awkward and uncomfortable for a while but slowly them layers will come away and before you know it...,you will be as you where xxx

      It is scary Hun..it really is but anxiety is just a feeling,a sensation....and the thoughts are just a offshoot of anxiety....the product of a frightened,tired mind.

      Anxiety feels horrendous and the thoughts make you feel like there is something more wrong with you than just anxiety but I promise you,it is anxiety.

      It won't disappear over night Hun.im not going to lie but it does slowly get better. 

      A few people joined the page yesterday...Thats brilliant. I just love the thought that we have a place to go. It's a closed group to so nobody can see your posts other than group members and everybody is so sweet and supportive.

      There is a book called "at last a life" by Paul David. It explains anxiety and each and every thing that happens to us when anxious and he tells how he overcame it. It's a great read and really has helped me xxx

      Hi Tanya, we all feel the same way as you both the psychological and physical symptoms making us feel like we are not normal. Perhaps knowing that we feel the same will help calm you down a bit.

      Also Google deep breathing exercises you can do and practice to lessen your anxiety symptoms.
