I just want to get some advice about anxiety and how to deal with it. So I have generally dealt with anxiety now for around 10 years, it was probably at its worst for the first 5 years but it has slowly improved since. I have used books and read articles online on how to deal with it. Anyway, recently I have found that it has gotten worse again. It is mainly at work where I suffer, I quite often find myself sweating or blushing for hardly no apparent reason. I almost lose my own self control when this happens and it's almost like it isn't actually me. People have spotted this before and I can usually try and counter act why I may have gone red or why I am sweating so much but I can't help but feel awful inside afterwards thinking about what other people think and then I think about what if it happens again. I usually feel back to normal after 15 minutes but still worry afterwards.
It is mainly in the working environment where I have had this kind of problem on and off. Outside work I am generally fine, I get nervous before say going to the pub or say going out to a restaurant but when I am there I am generally ok. Im actually quite outgoing but anxious aswell.
Has anyone had similar experiences? And Can anyone advise on what I should do? Especially about work and how to deal with having the panic attacks. I don't get them too often but recently they have happened more than usual and it is starting to affect how I feel and think about myself, thanks
