It's been months since I last blogged, and it was certainly a sombre one. I've read it back a few times and it breaks my heart knowing how much pain I was in. I truly felt like all of my attempts to get my life back on track were blocked by hurdles far bigger than me.

I don't know where to start this really, so I'm going with - I don't know if I'm okay or not. This post probably isn't going to have much positivity and is just a way for me to vent my feelings. So, please don't continue if you're looking for a good read.

Today's session I had my boyfriend come in too, I thought it might be helpful for us both by him understanding, and also helping me with any tasks that are set.

We began the session by going through the questionnaires given to me last week. Both the Panic questionnaire...

I have to sit and write right now, because I'm currently being so tortured by my thoughts and I'm afraid I'm losing my mind. 

First thing's first - if you don't understand anxiety and panic disorders, the fears and worries in this journal are very real to me and at time...
