Hello There,

Im a new user, im 28 and have been suffering from Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD) for about 7 years on and off. Generalized means that out of the blue i can start to feel tight chested, dry mouth, palpataions, sweaty palms and just a feeling of unease.
I hate it! ive just become a father about 6 months ago and im already worring about taking her out on trips and things worring that i might feel ill and then that makes me feel ill. Its a vicious circle..any advice?

Hi Deano: I know how you feel regarding the anxiety. I’m sorry you’re going through this. It’s wonderful you have a baby! I think it’s natural to have anxiety when someone becomes a parent, but I hear what you’re saying – having GAD for so long and now you have all this new responsibility. Anxiety is cruel and eats away self-confidence and the ability to just have a “normal day
