My Anxiety Is Back With A Vengance ... And What I Plan To Do About It.

So, since starting the FODMAP diet my anxiety seems to have come back with a vengeance and it is a vicious circle. I feel like I can't go out without worrying about toilets. Or eating something I shouldn't and then feeling sick and then needing the toilet urgently. I am not eating properly, I am living on a really low intake, of all the wrong foods. Sugary disgusting snacks just to keep me going.

I know that this is not good and I cant go on living like this. I go to work (and have been having at least one panic stack on my 30 minute commute) or I sit on the sofa or in my bed. I feel like for the past two weeks I have been letting my life happen around me and it needs to stop.

I have got to take control of my mental health, especially now it is having such an effect on my physical health. I need to make time for yoga, meditation and fresh air every day. I also need to start eating three proper meals everyday, cut down on the jelly babies, and drink plenty of water.

I have always said that my blog will be a place where I will be honest, and honestly I have thought about not sharing on here, because I feel like who wants to hear me moan?

I will see how things go but I may need to go back to my GP and go back on my medication, but for now I am going to try this my own way! If you have any tips feel free to share
