It as been a few days since you met Sophie_M who as usual gives good advice and useful links.
It is not really surprising your anxiety is high. You had a job, it was an unpleasant one being bullied with a bad boss and a more difficult company. Just that alone sets a person's anxiety on high.
Then the job went, whch may have been unexpected. OK, financially it was not too bad, but did introduce an element of uncertainty, if that job could disappear one might be tempted to think so could any others. That would have made anxiety even worse.
It can get so bad it limits you, I know as I've been exactly like that . One fears one will stumble and fail, and it sort of gets to be a self-fulfilling prophecy. Plus there is no motivation.
I'm very glad you have started with a councilor, I would imagine though your GP, who prescribes the meds. It is however important to remember that you know yourself best, and are in charge of your treatment. If you 'click' with the councilor and come away a little stronger after a few sessions, a little more able to cope, then things are on the right track.
If however you find things do not seem to do anything for you then please don't be hesitant to talk matters over wiht them and say exactly that. It is no good 'going though the motions', it has to actually help.
I'd imagine anyone who had enough faith in themselves and determination to the extent the got a pilot's license should be able to do this.
You are now in the job seeking stage, which can be pretty soul destroying. May I suggest you partition your life? Maybe job related matters always first thing of the morning, and after lunch a complete change, no matter what. Try to lead a separate life where you mind is not always dwelling on applications and results.
Do other thngs. I find having something to look forward to in the evening, even something small, helps .I anticipate with pleasure reading a few more chapters in a book -what do you think might suit you?
May I ask if you have family or someone in your life to support you, someone to lean on, talk with and share the load? It can help a lot, I had my partner who was a real surprise, more capable and sensible than I'd ever imagined.
As your anxiety decreases you will find, like me, you have more concentration to learn and more success in doing so.
We would like to know how you are getting on
