I got some news last night that triggered a panic attack. I suffer quite badly from anxiety and although I got to sleep ok I’ve been waking up every hour feeling like I’m going to be sick. My heart rate is extremely high and I’m feeling very shaky and sick and can’t stop crying. Do you think I should call in sick to work in the morning?

You sound like you probably need to call in sick, if it's going to make you feel more relaxed...
Alternatively going to work might help you take your mind off whatever is causing this. Try not to let it invalidate you for longer than a couple of days nonetheless. Listen to good music, read a book or watch a film to distract you a little

Definitely take time for yourself to restore your energies, I have to sometimes too . The only thing I want to say is don't let it become a cycle, if you take time off whenever you're anxious, you'll start feeling more anxious to do thing if that makes sense... sometimes you gotta care for yourself and sometimes you gotta face it
hope it eases up soon xx
