Hope you're all having a lovely Sunday!
I wanted to write a post about my anxiety. In January I told you it was improving and I thought I had it under control. February and March was a different story. I have been really struggling with anxiety and have had more panic attacks in the last 6 weeks than I have in the last 6 months. I think it's because I had a lot of social events which meant travelling lots and drinking alcohol too. Both of these things are huge triggers for my anxiety. I think it might be time to acknowledge that alcohol and me are not a good match. A few drinks on a Friday when I have no plans the next day is fine. But if I have plans the next day then I know I shouldn't drink anything. I don't know why it triggers it so badly, but at least I've figured out what causes my panic attacks so I can try to avoid them.
I'm determined to get my anxiety back under control and I think the first step to doing this is to cut out alcohol for a few weeks and see how I feel. I've spoken to lots of other bloggers with anxiety and the majority of them find alcohol to be a trigger so I think it's pretty normal!
Even though I've been having a hard time with anxiety I've managed to not let it take over my life like I used to. I have still been meeting friends after work and going out on the weekends, so it's definitely not as bad as my final year at uni. I am determined to never let it get to that stage again which is why I'm addressing the issue now so I can get back on track.
Do any of you suffer with anxiety? Any tips?
