I have anxiety and in the oast been agrophobic...

I found my sypmtoms flared with stress. As you say you have alot on atm and it may be a trigger ?

I had CBT in anxiety and since then :fingerscrossed: i have manged to control it as it teaches you techniques in what your triggers are and how to prevent them flaring up by nippin it in the bud before you loose control.

Everything you expressed is anxiety.

Its good to talk and seek help and reasurance but you need also to say this to your GP

See if they can get you additional support if you want to not just meds, IMO i feel therapy helps just as good :)

Hi Blueberry, sorry you are feeling like this at the moment and I agree with Lisa I think you need to talk to the doctor about this, if that worries you ask your mam if she will help you be speaking to the doc on your behalf. They arent watching you so dont worry as Lisa said that is the anxiety making you feel that way :fingerscrossed: :fingerscrossed: :fingerscrossed: and :goodluck2: with talking to the doc I'm sure she can help you :hugs: :hugs: :hugs: :hugs: :hugs:

If you're going :crazy: :crazy: :crazy: :crazy: :crazy: Blueberry, then we're all going there with you as well :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap:

It definitely does sound like you need to talk to you GP about it. Maybe make a list of things you need/want to talk about, starting with the one that is the most pressing/important one to you. Make your appt and get your lovely mam to go with you and see what can be done to try and help you with things :fingerscrossed: :fingerscrossed:

My GP always seems busy as well, and I've often put things off as long as I can :facepalm: :facepalm: :facepalm: The earlier you go when something starts, the easier it could be to sort out, instead of leaving it and it getting harder to sort out :? :?

You're definitely not alone :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock:
