Ben, I am sorry you are having a rough time and please do feel free to vent away. I know you have had a hard time and please know coming here and letting out your feelings is a good thing. Sharing your problems helps bring them into perspective.
Please do know that accepting your anxiety disorder is 1/2 the battle and you have only recently accepted the dx and stopped fighting against it.
Give yourself time and remember the good things you have done. Look back at how far you have come and keep on moving forward, one step at a time.
We are here for you so stick with us.
Ben are you in therapy or on any meds? Hang in there mate, we are here for you
Thank you for the reply. Yes you might be right my sleep is a real issue and I do tend to get worse if not sleeping proparly. I have tried all sorts of things to help me sleep but none seem to work and this is something I am going to discuss at my next meeting with my pdoc. Good to hear from you sam and hope all is well with you.
