Hi Sam, Thanks and sorry for taking so long to get back to you. I totally agree that my physical health was compromised by the stress I was under and that I was probably deficient in nutrients. I also believe that my chronic deficiency of hydration/sunlight/exercise at the time was a factor also. My meditation practice and attendance at retreats has helped me release repressed emotions in a safe, private manner so perhaps that could help you too? Find a bit of nature where you can express your anxiety without onlookers? I have been taught that we are compressed bodies of emotions and thoughts and when those repressed emotions are felt, then they are released. However in my case, the clearing of negative emotions just seemed to go on and on but eventually it did stop and those overwhelming time periods of emotion were vanquished. Hoping that I have given you some support and encouragement on your journey in life. Best wishes.
