Welcome to icliniq.com.

I have read your query and understand your concern.

Remember every problem has a solution you just need to try solving it and help is just a step away. You need to take treatment to recover. Consult a psychiatrist in person for evaluation and treatment. Regular follow-up with a psychiatrist is necessary. Practice relaxation techniques like breath relaxation exercise daily as they will help you relax, focus and eases your anxiety. Do aerobic exercise daily and have a balanced diet rich in antioxidants and omega 3 fatty acids.

Feel free to ask if you have any further queries.

Thank you.
