If you're in the same boat as me, please know that you don't have to suffer alone. Your mental health concerns are nothing to be ashamed of. Go to your GP. Tell them how you are feeling. If you walk away feeling embarrassed or ashamed or unsupported, it's time to find a new GP, because I promise, you don't need to feel alone in your suffering anymore.
When I've stopped living by these few rules that I am going to share, my anxiety has rushed back into my life. So I know that they work. Also, you'd be surprised these methods of living are pretty normal which helps me to believe that there's nothing abnormal about living with anxiety. I'm here to share!
