Hi, I am new here

I am struggling really bad with anxiety , I have been to see my local GP but that is as far as I have gone. I worry so much about things and always think the worst, I have just split up with my boyfriend and that really isn’t helping . I am scared to talk to friends and family . I always cry , sometimes I will say I am going out just so I can go somewhere in my car to cry , I don’t know what to do with myself , some days I am absolutely fine and others it’s awful I don’t want to go out or do anything . I have really bad mood swing where I can be fine one minuet and the next I’m screaming and shouting has anyone else ever felt like this x

Hi and welcome to the forum.

I am sorry you that you feel down.
You need to get a professional diagnosis. Once you take care of that, you’ll know what type of treatment is available for you. You may need therapy only or medications if your condition requires it or both. I really hope you don’t need medications.

Hang in there and I hope you feel better soon.

It really is horrible, I have people around me I just can’t talk. They gave me a booklet on how to cope with anxiety

Did the booklet help?
I have seen several.
Some just give symptoms and tell you that you have anxiety.
You already know you have so not really helpful.
Others give ideas of coping mechanisms.

Who gave you the booklet?
Take care, Pollypop x
