I Need Help

“I can’t keep going on like this. It started 6 months ago when I lost my job. I started getting really anxious in big spaces. I noticed my breathing getting faster and I freaked out in the supermarket a few months ago.

I feel like I’m drowning. I haven’t been able to get another job, and I have tried. I’ve got so many bills to pay. I lie awake at night thinking about how I can sort this mess out.

I think I need some help, but I just don’t know where to turn. My anxiety is getting worse and I feel really low in my mood. I went to the doctors, but they didn’t really help, and suggested medication to help me cope, but I just need a job to get me out of this. I feel so alone.”
