Am I too late to get therapy?
So, I been struggling with anxiety attacks this past few months, which I manage to get under control at times, but they now seem to be getting worse. I reel stressed, down, light headed and panicky. I was referred to seek therapy by my gp few months back but never took the courage.
Negative thoughts in my mind keep rushing in my head, afraid of getting comments or remarks or sarcastic jokes about me from certain people and my awkwardness etc.
I'm going abroad in the middle of February, because my mom wanted company and we're visiting family for a few months. I don't know why I booked,* just wanted to get out of this place somehow.
I felt that I wasn't bad enough and felt better, but this month my anxiety has gotten worse again, I'm getting regrets, fear of my social awkwardness and bad experiences from last summer when the very hot weather I always liked made me feel panicky faint and horrible, like I was sensitive to it. And the inner fear of, if I be happy, something bad will happen. And the fear of my panic attacks making me feel light headed and horrible.
I been hearing stuff on the news about how hard it is for certain people to get to a mental health professional on the NHS
Would it be worth giving therapy a call? Or have I left it too late now?
Is there much they can do?
