    I'm so fed up and I don't know what to do. I have had anxiety for quite a while, I luckily managed to get through university and I am trying to work for myself. I just feel anxious all the time, I keep feeling down and irritable and find it difficult to do anything. I have been to CBT before and I am going to try it again but whilst waiting for that, there have even been times when I have thought about trying antidepressants because I'm so fed up of the cycle of feeling rubbish and I want to be happy and live my life. I just don't know what to do anymore. Sometimes I feel a little better but then the rubbish feelings come back again.

    It's good that you're trying CBT again. Have you seen your GP recently? It could be worth discussing the possibility of medication with them. They'll be able to help you decide whether it's for you or not, and go over whether it may or may not be an appropriate form of treatment for you. In the meantime, try and distract yourself a bit. You have your work, and a lot of people find things like music and art help them a lot. It's not even all about distraction, sometimes you just have to find an outlet for how you feel. Hopefully you won't be waiting too long for CBT! All the best!
