I do not know if this is a real answer to your anxiety but I had joined an anxiety group just recently although I have only been on the one occasion it was an eye opener for me. I wanted to learn and understand and as I entered the building I was directed to the group I thought was my Anxiety group. In a small drab room there were four people sitting around a table, files were on the tabel along with booklets, they looked very depressed and I thought, ‘this has to be my group’ and I apologised for being late.
One of the participants asked me who I was looking for and I told them it was the anxiety group and the lady replied ‘Oh no, we are the secret eaters group, your group is in the other building’. My group was indeed in the other building, a well lit room with pamplets and nibbles, coffee on tap and a great atmosphere. There was plenty to learn and people to meet, the secret eaters group could take some lessons from the anxiety group.
From this experience I learned that an atmosphere that exudes inclusion, enjoyment and good exercises in learning about anxiety is the way for me to go….it may be different for others but you can learn different types of interventions and have some fun.
