Hi again everyone,
I'm having a pretty rough time tonight, but if I'm honest I've been struggling for close to 2 months.
I quick background is ive had anxiety offically for about 10 years or so, I see a psych on and off and am on anti depressants.
I live in regional vic, so lock down isn't helping, plus we are building a house and expecting our second child. Just to put some pressure on!
A fear ive always had is ill lose my job for one reason or another and now with my wife off work and taking on a lot of debt its compounding.
I know most of my triggers and I generally just avoid them and of i am triggered I can bounce back relatively quick. I had a server panic attack close to 2 months ago and am yet to bouncw back. I have small triggers that ruin my day, like today.
My psychologist has suggested I talk to my GP and and psychiatrist to potentially increase my dosage during this stressful time and look into if I have OCD.
Ironically enough the idea of another diagnosis and increasing meds is making me.anxious, but I'm keen to get on top of this for my son, my unborn child, my wife and also myself.
Thanks for reading, I just needed a rant.
