I have anxiety and id consider it mild OCD.. Ive just started back at uni and my stress has definitely skyrocketed. Intrusive thoughts I have had throughout my life, but this particular time its really really bothered me and I can't stop thinking about it, and as soon as I remember I'm not thinking about it... I think about it. It gives me anxiety and then I feel physically sick. When i am busy i completely forget about it and feel fine, but its not long and my brain reminds me...... I am not under the care of a psychiatrist and I've been there done that and it never helped. I have recently started taking my anxiety medication again (10 days ago) so I'm just wondering.does anyone have any coping strategies? I have tried to not think about it, tell myself that its just a thought and thats its not me as a person. but its starting to make me question the person i am, its making me feel awful about myself and guilty.. and then im worried i beleive these thoughts when i KNOW thats not me.
In need of some advice.

I had a major panic attack yesterday which required me to leave a bar. I was only there for about a half hour. While the intensity has subsided, I still feel panicky today and had a hard time going to the supermarket today. Has anyone ever experienced this? How did you get through it?
