I cant stop anxiety and panic attacks

Postby brizzle1965 » Mon Feb 22, 2021 1:03 pm

I am new to the Sane Forum. I am just looking for advice and support. In July 2019 I lost me job due to anxiety and depression. I was on anti-depressants for a while, and then along came lock-down. Ive set up a small business (Architectural Design), but finding this very stressfull at times. I know deepdown that I need to go back to work as an employee, but in my mind I struggle to find the mental strength to do this. I suffer from constant anxiety and frequent panic attacks. But I just cant seem to break this cycle and feel that I have dug a hole for myself and there is now way out. Ive been on anti-depressant again for about 6 months but this hasnt helped me significantly. Is there anyone out there that can share any advice on how to be calm again.

Wow...very similar to my story...I also lost my job in 2019 after being off sick with anxiety/depression. Ive been to hell and back. Ive also been trying to set up an online craft shop which has defo helped keep me busy but its not providing a wage. I too am going to have to somehow move back into a job but Im terrified. As soon as I get close and think its time to go back the anxiety and panic comes back. My head then goes to dangerous places and I start feeling that Id rather kill myself than go back to work. Im working with a therapist and very slowly chipping away but I totally understand how you feel.
