Now that my Christmas shopping is done I am feeling a lot calmer. Still having trouble leaving the house unless Kev is with me and I know he locked the door, and yesterday I managed to leave my phone at home and spent the entire day worrying it had been stolen, but I am starting to feel better.
It looks like my stress management course thing won't happen until new year now, but I do have a bit more confidence now that it will help.

I've decided I would rather make patterns for people to sew their own clothing than make clothes for other people because I like to make fancy things with lots of interesting trims and embellishments, but I don't seem to get commisioned to make things like those.
Also there aren't a lot of pattern companies that cater to alternative styles.

Today my diagnosis notes arrived in the post. I've never been given the option to have notes sent out before but this is actually pretty handy as A: I have something solid and real in front of me that could help calm me down in that I know that this is definitely a real thing that is happening to me and I'm not just being weak willed.
They also have a more detailed diagnosis than my doctor was able to give in person or that the doctor who called was able to give me over the phone.
While they agree that I have severe anxiety, they've both decided that I'm a low risk of being a danger to myself or others (which is at least something good right?), and that I should take a course on stress management to see if it helps me with dealing with panic attacks.
Unfortunatly it looks like I won't be able to join the programme until after Christmas (no room for me at the moment), so I have to try and work out how to cope on my own for the stressiest possible time of the year for me :/
