I don't have as many anxiety attacks when I'm on medication, but it has other nasty effects. I've recently had 2 weeks off work because I couldn't handle things and now work and now work are pressuring me to see occupational health which I really don't want to do. I'm just so fucking tired of feeling mental all the time.
It's never going to go away completely. I try to have a lifestyle that fits around it which granted means I don't achieve a lot but it's a fair trade off.
What medication are you on?
I tried sertraline before that and it was horrible.
When did you last have a holiday?
Permenantly fused to my entire being
a lot of laying awake heart-pounding for no conceivable reason, but have caught up on a bit of sleep and kept up with long runs in the week and it's back down to my baseline of mild existential angst.
I've gotten so lazy lately I need to learn from your example.
but i find it really levels me out over time
But I found if I went for a long walk, like 1-2 hours, it would totally transform my mood. Really need to get back to it
A few months. Get some vivid fucking dreams though.
but im handling it (well impervious to it anyway)
If you ever need to chat just pm me:)
It's really really effective for managing anxiety. There's an app called Headspace which is fucking brilliant.
I posted on another thread about anxiety so resources that will help you. I had panic attacks for about 25 years but recently overcame them using a combination of CBT and brute force.
