    Hi there cakeboss

    I'm sure you post touched a familiar cord in many readers of the forum. I've always felt the worst part of suffering anxiety is the wax and waning of symptoms. The current lock down is certainly making me feel weird and I also had strange feelings on my morning walk today.

    It's great that you enjoy swimming, such a calming rhythmic exercise. I don't normally take medication but I thought I might have to reach for them today. I did a 6 kilometre jog which lifted my spirits.

    I hope the GP consult went well for you today and nest wishes with Psychiatrist tomorrow. Good luck cake boss, I wish you all the best.
