I've struggled with ha for a long long time I got married Saturday and on our 2 night escape after the wedding Sunday night it was I realised ide had a nose bleed and went into absolute overdrive I didn't eat our meal I felt shaky and felt like ide spoilt our escape for the 2 nights. Anyway I went to the doctors and obviously everything is fine but now I can't get the thought of impending doom out of my head the though Mt of leaving my wife and family is breaking me and I need professional help so I guess my question is is anyone currently receiving any professional help for there issues and where does it all begin.

All begins with you admitting you need the help. Next is to find the right kind of help. Therapist of some sort. If you speak to your regular GP he might even know a good therapist. Refer you to one. You are doing the right thing. You are only married. Now id the time to sort things out. So you can try and enjoy married life. Not have all these fears popping up every day of the week. Far more to life than that. With a bit of help that life you really want will there for you.

A lot of people have had great success with CBT as well.

Same page as you dude, I need help but I can't get it right now. It's not easy but I know you can do it.

I’m in online therapy now. My therapist suggested the book The Body Keeps the Score. Amazing book. I hope it helps someone else

HA has destroyed my life and marriage
Are you still married? If your spouse comes to understand that it's a mental health issue, not just you being irrational, maybe your spouse will develop the tools to be more supportive.

Yes I'm getting help for my HA, I accept help wherever I can find it and it's working.
