Hi, I am new here too. I have suffered with anxiety most of my life on and off, but since Christmas this year I have been really suffering and it is unlike anything I have ever felt before. I don’t really have any friends, I have always struggled to make friends and generally keep people at arms length, so I don’t tend to go out other than with family or my children.
I just feel so isolated, unmotivated. Not wanting to do what I normally would. I don’t know what triggered this or even if there was a trigger? I’m also a carer for my dad a few days a week as well as working in an office, and trying to set up a nail business.
I can’t accept how I am feeling is anxiety. Does anyone suffer with very physical symptoms with anxiety? Have you managed to overcome them? I am really struggling and constantly battling with myself everyday, often unable to eat from feeling so sick. I’ve had blood test results back today which are completely normal, but had upset me so much that there isn’t anything they can cure me of, it is in fact anxiety. I should be glad I’m healthy, yet I’m sat here worrying they have missed something. I feel like I am going crazy
