Hi Helen

I would like to also Welcome you to the forums as Geoff has done above

The forums are a safe and non judgemental place for you to post. I have had chronic anxiety for a long time and take meds so I can have some peace in my life with my ongoing counseling

I really hope you can stick around the forums (when and if you want to) 🙂

You are welcome to elaborate on your situation when you are comfortable doing so

my kind thoughts

Hi Helen hope you are ok. I got anxiety just out of the blue about 8 months ago abd really struggled with all the different symptoms it brought on especially nausea abd gagging everyday. Ive been seeing a physcologist which seems to help me cope better . Im sorry to hear about your father.Anxiety is really awful lm still trying to understand it but it has got better in time. Take care

Hi Helen

Thank you for the kind posts to everyone 🙂 Hope you are doing okay....My dad Raymond passed away in November 2016 and I feel your pain.....and it hurts....big time

Thankyou heaps JillG, Linacruise1467 for helping supporting Helens thread topic

I have had chronic anxiety for a few years and it does get a bit easier with frequent counseling...Our GP's can be a huge help when we need help too.....Making a double appointment can be a smart move so we can heal more effectively

The forums are a safe and non judgemental place to post. Everyone's well being and privacy is paramount to Beyond Blue

you are not alone
