    I've been in your shoes many times so far. I can't say I know why setbacks happen, but they just do. From personal experience, the journey of anxiety doesn't follow a linear path, and you need to rebuild, go from square one, many times over, again and again.

    I forgot to mention that there is always something that triggered the setback, so perhaps you could look into that.

    thanks for the reply,i was thinking the same going back to baby steps regarding graduated exposure, its just so hard not to beat yourself up over these setbacks though

    I know, as the instinct is to blame yourself, but remember all your accomplishments and be proud of yourself.
