Hi Shane, I've come here today for the first time and your post is the first I have read. Welcome! Like yourself, I have realised that I can't manage my anxiety alone and need to reach out. Tomorrow, I'm seeing my GP to discuss for the first time and identify what next. I have tentatively (but likely) resigned from my job as I need to take time out to focus on managing my anxiety. Thankfully I can afford to do this as I have a very supportive partner. I've lost 7kgs in weight over the past month as I struggle to eat without feeling like I want to be sick. My anxiety is mostly work related, anxious when I'm there, even more anxious when I'm not there, fear of failure, making mistakes, being criticised, a perpetual cycle of fear. I hope you can feel supported through this forum, and know that you're not alone. I'm 49 and I've decided it's time to sort this out, it's been going on for too long and I can't maintain my day to day with it. Finding this page will hopefully help me feel a connection to people who understand what I'm going through.
