Okay so I’ve got anxiety and depression, which has been relatively controlled for the last year, I haven’t had a panic attack since January last year (during mocks). On Sunday at work I had a panic attack at work after some unpleasant encounters, and ever since it’s like I’ve been put on the edge. I keep having what I call mini anxiety attacks where I just feel like I’m going down a huge drop on a rollercoaster I don’t wanna be on. It’s stopping me from sleeping and I feel just, awful. I can’t do anything because I just feel scared. And I had to call in sick to work yesterday because I couldn’t cope, and this in turn is making my low mood worse. I still can’t cope with how I’m feeling but I don’t feel like I’m in any danger to myself or others, but at the same time I’m absolutely terrified of having a panic attack again (especially because of my asthma) and I’ve not stopped having chest pains and other physical symptoms since.
So knowing all that, would you say I should get an emergency appointment?? I’d call 111 to ask but being on the phone gives me anxiety and we’re not worsening that today my son.
Edit: I don’t know why this is in the accommodation section?? Sorry

Sorry to hear your feeling this way - I would suggest if you feel up to it, calling 111 (especially as your having chest pains). If not, see if you can get an emergency GP appointment.
I would also suggest that if you struggle with making a phone call you can contact the Samaritans about your mental health, as you can email or write to them: Website: https://www.samaritans.org/how-we-ca...act-samaritan/
If your in a student accommodation or university please speak to someone there - You may find there will be someone trained in mental health or may even be able to contact someone on your behalf!
There are plenty of people who can help so make sure you reach out to someone - Jess
