I've never had anxiety in my entire life. About 8 months ago, I had my first ever anxiety and since then, it's an ongoing issue that comes on sporadic, with no warning.
My chest gets tight, my throat closes and feels dry, my forehead starts sweating and I go in shutdown mode. The first one occurred at the grocery store, when I was checking out. I started scoping the building for exits. Now, it's basically affecting me anywhere and everywhere except home.
The grocery store and going out to dinner with my family have both turned into guaranteed anxiety. Its so bad, I can't eat when at dinner. It's starting to effect my daily functions.
My job requires client interactions daily and I havemy met with a client in over a year. I've hired a partner to handle it for me as I just can't do it anymore. I have a doctor's appointment this Friday, but what will they do... what are some coping techniques to help?
