Dr. Pixie gives her advice on dealing with anxiety
A. It's your GP's job to help you work through this, so chat to him about your concerns and how your anxiety manifests itself. Tell him about your sleep, energy levels, work/life balance and all your recreational habits, especially if you ever smoke cannabis. Find out if there's any history of anxiety or other mental health problems in your family and, if so, mention this to him. Also, think about whether anything triggered these feelings about friends and strangers, and in the UK suffer with similar anxieties and there's lots of help out there.

I worry about everything too. Recently I started getting insomnia because I was worrying about not getting enough sleep. I've found that audiobooks with relaxation techniques can really help you to take a moment out of your worrying and calm down. I'm also in the process of using a cognitive behavioural therapy audiobook to try and rationalise my worrying. If your worrying is having a negative impact on your life it may be worth talking to your GP they can give you a number to recieve therapy or councelling. Most importantly don't feel bad about worrying too much as it's counter productive. It's just a pattern of thinking that has become destructive and you may just need a little bit of help to change it.
