    New guy in a panic

    Iím Dan Iím 32 from Essex UK, Iím a healthcare manager, Iím a husband who really loves his wife, and I want to say my anxiety is caused by work but I canít be sure of that.

    Iíve been crying a tonne, left jobs over it, just in a new home with a new job, and Iím having a really big episode. Heart palps, racing dark thoughts, super tearful, need constant reassurance, so much so I broke down to a pharmacist, who maybe one of the kindest people Iíve ever met, told me her journey and led me here

    Thinking of trying CBT, I think Iíve hit my rock bottom and I know I need change

    Sorry to hear how your feeling you need to talk it really helps, l had cbt it helped me can't do any harm to try, you have come to the right place you will find lots of lovely like minded people here with good advice, but remember keep talking and if you need to cry that's ok too, its a sign of strength not weakness hope you find some comfort take care xx

    Hi Dan, welcome and all that..

    Interesting opener..

    just in a new home with a new job, and I’m having a really big episode. Heart palps, racing dark thoughts, super tearful, need constant reassurance, so much so I broke down to a pharmacist, who maybe one of the kindest people I’ve ever met, told me her journey and led me here
    New job, new house - MASSIVE stressors.

    Thinking of trying CBT, I think I’ve hit my rock bottom and I know I need change
    Absolutely try CBT. Your GP can refer you or you can self-refer using the NHS CBT webpage.

    Don't worry about hitting rock bottom mate - sometimes we need to hit the bottom in order to push ourselves off the floor and back up again.

    Thankyou for taking the time to reply,

    I know Iíve put a lot on myself haha, life just took a turn this way, during COVID etc

    Iím trying to remember itís a lot to put on anyone and show myself some compassion, but Iím not very kind to me, and I just keep thinking ĎI want it to go away, it keeps sabotaging my lifeí but I know itís not that simple.

    Iíve been medicated a lot before with SSRIs and Diazepam and it was a nightmare, I think Iíve become anxious about being anxious.

    I really want to start learning how to manage better and Iím told CBT is really helpful with that

    Life's shit doesn't go away without effort on our part. I speak from experience here, and I've had some serious shit to deal with in my time.

    I came across a brilliant quote recently - which I keep intending to use as my signature..

    There is within you a spirit that is greater than whatever is going on around you.

    Hi Dan,
    You are not alone re the anxiety as you will soon see when you read through threads on this site. Definitely go and see your GP. Get some counselling which can be done online. Consider medication that can help you manage the anxiety so you can function properly. There is plenty of other things out there like meditation. These can help you turn the corner.
