Hello all. Im a new member to this forum so forgive me if ive posted in the wrong place or something. For a while now i have been trying to get some help to deal with my anxiety problem, it is getting to the point where i cant talk to anyone with out sweat dripping off me or i just cant talk properly. I really would like to get driving lessons so i can get mobile and go to places like the seaside again which i havn't done for about 20 years its actualy not to far away between 90 and 100 mile away. I had a driving lesson a few months ago and it didn't go well while taking the lesson my anxiety kicked in and i started to sweat and shake i was making mistake after mistake i couldn't concentrate and it just went wrong. When it finaly finished i came back home and had to get changed and then got into bed for about 2 - 3 hours just to calm my nerves, i felt so depressed . I have been to see the doctor about my problem 3 times and each time all hes said to me is get more exercise and go out in public and just gives me a paper to these healthy minds group meetings. I have always been a shy person and have always been a loner due to excessive bullying at school and other reasons, and going out in public is part of the problem. Ive even seen a specialist ive seen in the past due to some blood problems, she even said i could take something for my anxiety to control it and even wrote a note to my doctor but again he either hasn't read the note or hes not interested and hasn't helped me and just said the usual. I have tried many off the shelf remedies like Kalms, Rescue Remedy drops and pastilles and other off the shelf herbal remedies but knon of these have helped. Its as though know one wants to help me and im just banging my head at a brick wall, i dont want to go to group meetings i just want something that will calm my anxiety and nerves that is all. Only thing i can think of is going to see a different doctor for a different opinion or if anyone on the forum has had a similar experince and can offer some helpfull advice then it would be gratefully welcome.
