Anxiety arghhhh

I needed an Osteopath and my friend kindly recommended one for me, I tend not to see people who are not by recommendation; I’d never just chose someone at random my anxiety won’t allow it.

I decided to email the business, the only problem was, they actually replied and offered a choice of appointment dates, I panicked and some irrational fear inside me would not allow me to chose a date or respond.

By the time my anxiety had passed and I felt I was able to respond, the dates had passed, so then I had to re-email, explaining and apologising for my over anxious mind.

Anxiety isn’t something which grips me constantly but it prevents me from doing quite a few things alone.

For example, if I’m out and somewhere new opens, I can’t see through the windows, everything looks black like the place is closed, when in fact it could be open and the windows perfectly clear. I therefore need to usually have someone with me if I go somewhere just incase this happens.

It’s happened at airports, railway stations, pubs, shops even restaurants.

I’m just wondering if anyone else has these episodes and how do you manage them?

Obviously I can’t have someone with me all of the time, I’m a grown woman. Society expects me to be normal and function as such. I avoid over indulging in caffeine, I rarely drink alcohol mostly because I’m what we call ‘a lightweight’ and I try to plan my outings and be early, obviously this doesn’t always work.

I once sat in the wrong terminal at an Airport for hours before I realised because I couldn’t read the signs and was too embarrassed to ask and explain that, to me, all the signs were blacked out.

So how do other people with this type of anxiety cope? Let me know x
