So I now realise that I need to get help to learn to manage and control my anxiety. I am not going mad or crazy but I want to lead my life in a better way.
So here's what I have done.
Started meds - never done that before but fingers crossed that they will make a difference.
Trying to be positive - find a few things everyday that feel like I am making progress
Accepting help - I am trying to acknowledged my weakness at the moment but that's hard.
Remembering that I'm loved - I got dumped by my boyfriend just as I got ill but I have amazing kids, family & friends.
And finally and this is the hard one - when life dumps an issue on me I am trying not to panic. This is proving to be a challenge as I have a difficult business issue to resolve but hopefully I can find a way.
I would really like to hear anyone's thoughts on my plan - am I misguided or headed in the right direction?
