Anxiety thrives on isolation. During those darkened moments alone, the mind is free to wander. You will start to second guess everything you have done so far, and you will end up fearing the future uncertain.
Even if it seems difficult, try your hardest to reach out to whatever support network you have. This can be in any form, whether it is a support group, friends or relatives. Don't try and suffer alone.
If you have any fears about admitting to your anxiety, perhaps try and challenge the assumptions that may be fuelling these fears. For example, you might assume that you cannot admit that you feel anxious. You might assume that you must appear stronger than you really are. Why? It is okay not to feel okay.
