I think I need help

I’ve had increased anxiety attacks over a few months now and it’s affecting my relationships and work. I was good at handling it back then but now, it just got worse. What can I do? Has anybody experienced this before?

I've no experience in this  & it sounds awful. My first instinct is  to ask what your blood glucose is.

 

You  indicated that your a parent, so does that mean you are not dibetic?

Tis the season for anxiety attacks.

With the recent holidays, the shorter days, the political uncertainty, and COVID's social isolation there are a lot of anxiety attacks. I haven't had one in almost 20 years but it has rear its ugly head again. Back 20years ago I learned grounding techniques and that helped then and now.

If the attacks become debilitating I suggest going to therapy.

Eurotoff, are you taking medications such as benzodiazepine ?

 

A side effect of this med can be increased anxiety. 

Do some googling on benzos, side effects and  long term use.

 

If thats causing your anxiety, dont just stop taking it as that can be more dangerous.

Discuss it with your doctor & they will give you something else to help you come down, while that can be managed.

 

That link posted above looks ideal.......do try it.
