I personally do not like medication so I would not take it and my doctor doesn’t want me to take it either. I did however get counselling on the nhs which I found really helpful, I came close to recovery, but I was only allowed six sessions and cannot afford a private counsellor. I would love to be receiving counselling again but I don’t see how it is possible. (I also tried my college counselling service but found the counsellor wasn’t suited to me) Thank you for you reply though 🙂 x
Thank you all for your replies. I know that my thoughts are negative and that I am the only one causing my anxiety and also the only one that can take it away but I feel too scared to let go. I see that acceptance is the way forward but I already have a fear I am going mad and fear that just letting go will sort of send me over the edge as it were! x
Thank you Alice for your reply what you wrote is absolutely 100% how I feel! Your response helped me a great deal!
Sandrine I do not think the anxiety is about exams I just think it isnt helping it hehe! Exams are what started my anxiety however, it was when I was doing my GCSEs had my first panic attack. I am ok with panic attacks now it is simply the anxiety that gets me down. You shouldn’t need to remember to breathe your body will do that for you! But I guess you mean just take time out to just breathe in your surroundings and calm down? thank you 🙂
