Hi,I'm new to this forum. I am so fed up as I am always anxious. I can't go to work because of it, am currently off but due to go back saturday. I'm not looking forwards to it at all. At the moment I feel nervous, butterflies and can't get my breath. I have been to my GP about this a few times before and also been to see a cognative therapist, but feel that did not help. My GP has put me on Diazepam before and instead of going to see him this time I rang the surgery to ask if he could do me a prescription for Diazepam which I got yesterday. I don't know if its working. I still feel anxious.
When it came on yesterday I became emotional and couldnt breathe, like a panic attack. I couldnt go to work. I have been off work with this before, the longest being a month. I'm worried about my job, but feel I am no use to anyone when feeling like this. I feel I can't talk to anyone as people close to me do not understand. I would be grateful of support and advice.
