That's better - apart from it coming up twice! Apologies - my phone is useless!

You’re right, so rewarding but significantly stressful. I was a newly qualified nurse for a couple of months and before I knew it I was frontline working during the pandemic and still do (probably where most of the anxiety has stemmed from). The breathing techniques are what I use most, it does help more than people think. Yes I’m in the UK, thank you very much I will check it out; willing to try anything!

I have nothing but admiration for you. Talk about being thrown in at the deep end! You are incredible to be doing what you're doing, and even the strongest person would find it difficult.
Yes, it's working trying all avenues, as you need to find out what works for you. Everyone is different, and what helps one person isn't going to necessarily help another.
I can testify that No Panic are useful - they've been going for years so are good at what they do.
And this place is always good when you need to get things off your chest. There's usually someone here to chat to who is going through similar.

'worth' not 'working' trying all avenues...can't blame the phone for that one!

Thank you that’s very kind. I will definitely make use of No Panic. I’m so glad I found this place, I have been flicking through and getting used to it - nice to know you are not alone in these situations! Ha. it’s late that can be your excuse!

Oh good - I'll blame the time instead then lol
Yes, it's often very reassuring to talk to others who understand exactly how it feels. This forum has definitely helped me through some difficult times.

Yes talking to yourself and others this evening have definitely made me feel better. I normally feel exhausted after having an attack but feel the opposite now and unable to sleep. Can see myself being awake for a while!!
