I have always struggled with anxiety but only when something really bad happens . But around 6 months ago my girlfriend and I broke up and I experienced the normal sadness but after a month we spoke that brought on ridiculous anxiety nausea and sleeplessness then some time went along and we hung out a few times and I was literally sick with it I no now there is no way my anxiety will let me try to work it out . But now the littlest thing makes me feel sick to my stomach and my legs feel restless even when my son is loud now it can trigger it . Also being around my ex wife now that football practice has started for my son sucks. Is this something that will pass it helps a little to talk about it . I suffered pretty bad anxiety through my divorce but I don't remember it being this bad. My doc gave me a antidepressant used to treat anxiety and depression but honestly I don't really feel depressed I guess that's a good thing I took one pill and it gave me the worst anxiety attack I have ever had no way I am taking any more meds any suggestions.

Have you tried journaling? And it may be a sort of reaction toward people you think have hurt you beyond what you are capable of handling. I know journaling sounds so girly, but sometimes, writing things down and then reading it again you see something with your eyes that you couldn't see with your mind. Of course, please don't think I know all the things because if I did, my life probably wouldn't be in tatters right now.

Keeping a journal is a good idea. It enables you to.look back at the progress you may be making. Also. talking to yourself in this way can be therapeutic. Any form of outward expression can be helpful. Carl Jung used art as a means of analysing his patient's problems.
Although it may sound like a another distraction, keeping a journal does allow expression. Anxiety can be a friend as well as an enemy. Ask it what it is showing you about your life, and write down the answers. Sounds crazy? Any way of unloading emotions and feelings is always helpful.
