Update – Anxiety.

I have talked about my un-diagnosed anxiety quiet a bit on my blog, because its something that is always there and always in the back of my mind..

After what I can only describe as the worst seven weeks of my life, finally ending, well its not ended but its ended up with me dealing with an increase in panic/anxiety attacks, just last week I had three in one week when I usually have one once a month if I’m lucky..

and one of the days I had two back to back of each other.. not good..

So… I am super proud of myself, that I finally picked up the phone and called my GP… to talk to someone about my issues, my mum has recommended that I go see her massage therapist, so that’s probably where I am going to go, if the doctor asks me if I would like treatment, I don’t want to medicate.. I want to try and talk through my problems first before going down the extreme route of medication..

Not that medication is bad, but I don’t think it would be right for me, as I know I find talking much more therapeutic, Mr S has dealt with me talking all the time about my issues, I think its fair that he gets a little break haha.

My appointment is on the 18th of August, my mum is coming with me as I will be alone with the children, offering me support and trying to  make sure that my opinions on being medicated at this second, aren’t ignored.

I feel proud I did it, considering I don’t like talking to people on the phone OR people in general, its a big step for me..

A big step in a much more healthier mind.

I will update you all more later..

    Well done on making that first step, I know how hard it is. I am exactly the same, I went down the talking/CBT route because I just don’t like the thought of medication x

      Thank you x I just worry if I do have medication how it would make me feel, if I didn’t have children I’d probably have a different opinion but I worry it will effect me x

    Big well done on contacting your GP, I know how difficult it is to do that, especially when you don’t like talking on the phone, you definitely should be proud of yourself. I hope that your appointment goes well and that you have a good therapist who you’ll feel comfortable talking to. I understand what you mean in regards to wanting to speak about how you feel before trying medication. x

    That first step of reaching out is always hardest! I think going non-medicated is a good route to start with. I personally have been on medication for anxiety and it completely changed my personality. It made me numb to all emotions and I was like a robot.

    I’m so proud of you for taking the first step. I suffer from severe anxiety and panic attacks among other things, and honestly that first step is everything. Good luck with everything!
