I started university almost 2 weeks ago, I was excited to (finally) be doing something I enjoy and something I'm good at and at first, everything seemed fine despite the fact my course (Computer Network Technology) is very intense.
I developed Generalised Anxiety Disorder about 4 years ago and it took me 2 years to recover fully. I recovered by distracting myself with things I enjoy such as gaming and writing computer programs.
Although I can say I have recovered, for the past few days I've been waking up to feelings of intense dread and fear and occasionally panic attacks. Sometimes I have them in class or even when I'm in the kitchen with my flatmates. I've joined a few societies, I have a good group of friends and I'm only a 20 minute train journey away from home so I have the option to see my family and boyfriend regularly (note: I haven't done this recently as I want to settle into uni and not become homesick).
Cab anyone give me any advice on whether this might indicate my anxiety disorder is returning or any ways I can prevent these things from happening?
Is My Anxiety Returning?
