Hi there, my name is Peter and I have been suffering from anxiety for about 15 years but it seems to get worse as I get older and the meds help but don't stop it. Seems to be worse in the morning and then as the day goes on it subsides a little, but I always feel like I have a knot in my stomach, sometimes feel sick. It is worse at present as we are about to go on holiday and travel always creates more anxiety for me. My partner is very supportive but I don't like to keep saying that I feel bad.

Hi Peter, welcome to the forum. You will find lots of people here who are suffering in the exact same way you are. You are not alone, and hopefully browsing through the threads on this forum will turn up nuggets of advice that you will find helpful.

Welcome, Peter. Rest assured you are among friends. Panicky ones, but friends nonetheless! I hope you find some great support here and feel a little less alone in your anxiety!

Meds only go so far to help with anxiety. This is where we have to reach out for further help. A therapist, education about anxiety disorder. Etc.

Unfortunately I've never found therapists much help. I've even done courses in psychotherapy to try and help understand better. Maybe I need to try again. Thanks all for your kind messages of support
