It’s been a while since I updated this blog, but that is because I have been struggling in recent months from an increase in anxiety. Unfortunately this has led to a resumption of the panic attacks that I was having last year. I thought I’d managed to get over this after my local doctor put me on anti anxiety medication, but since I have come off it I’ve gradually started to get worse again, so that now I think I’m right back where I was before, The medication doesn’t seem to have had any long term benefit for me at all.
I’ve been scouring the internet for advice, but most of what I have read has just made me feel even more desperate. It seems there are a lot of people out there who have been living with panic attacks for years without being able to get over them. Just typing this is starting to make me feel anxious. I’ve come across a treatment program called panic away, that seems to get some good reviews and I am going to purchase it at the weekend and see if that can help me to get better. It seems to have lots of good testimonial from people, but you can never be sure until you try it really.
I certainly don’t want to end up like some of the people on forums I have read recently. People who seem to have had their life on hold for many years because of the fear that their anxiety disorder creates in them about all sorts of ordinary, day to day situations. It really is important that this time I beat this, and I’m quite sure now that medication really isn’t the way to go if I actually want to manage to do that once and for all.
My family are all supportive and understanding, fortunately, so they are all rallying around me while I try and deal with this. I can’t imagine what it would be like if I didn’t have their help. It seems like that is a common problem that many people have to face. It must get very lonely when that is the case. My mother is coming to visit next weekend, which will be nice, and we have a few nice family outings planned for the next week, so hopefully that can take my mind off things and help me to cope. It would be brilliant if this Panic Away treatment program actually manages to sort me out soon as well.
