Its mental health Awareness week. With Millions affected by mental health issues daily should this be classed as a national emergency? Should unlimited funds be invested into this problem?. Or is it down the person themselves?. Have we lost the ability to be resilient and has it become easy to blame some one else and expect other people to help. Discuss.
Hello, Thought i would share my recent experiences with anxiety and panic attacks which has become a real issue affecting my life on a weekly basis now This suddenly appeared in my life last november out of the blue while away for the weekend in edinburgh for a xmas shopping break away with my partner... i had a very sudden yet servere panic attack which resulted in the paramedics attending to me at the hotel. Ever since then i have suffered from panic attacks and feeling very anxious in many situations and avoiding many things that i enjoy and did without any thought what so ever prior to this. So after 33 years of my life free of these panic attacks and feelings of anxiety i have lived the past year of my life in constant battle with this horrible mental health issue. I have recieved CBT therapy earlier in the year which helped me a great deal understand my thoughts and symptoms, therefor reducing my panic attacks. Reason for mentioning this and talking openly is that i have discovered that many people i know also suffer some form of anxiety or panic to some degree and it is alot more common than i thought and as a sufferer know how difficult this can be and would like to share my thoughts, experience and knowledge to help others and recieve help from people who also suffer in silence sometimes. All coments/help welcome if anyone has any experience with this Kind regards
