    I'm so scared i'm going to lose my mum she got

    a lesion taken off her finger and the doctor said it was precancerous so they got it before anything developed but what if they're wrong? I don't know I could be overanalyzing like I seem to do. I'm so scared she's all i've got. Haven't stopped crying this whole evening. 😢

    I'M Scared Of Being Alone With Men

    I won't go into details why exactly but I'll say this, for a long time I would always get hit on by men way older than me. So today when this big tall black guy-he looked about my age,19, maybe a few years younger or older, I dunno-came up to me randomly asking for my name, I...

    Scared...

    I get really scared about my future sometimes. I guess I have a habit of really worrying about it, maybe because of how I grew up with not much money. I worry that I won't get a good job after I get out of college (or at least eventually,) or that I won't even graduate. I worry I...

    What if NO ONE can make him happy? What if he is just so used to saying he loves me, it's just a normal thing to say, like "Bless you," or "Excuse me." and he doesn't mean it anymore??? I'm so scared this "new" man he turned into changed his heart, too...

    I'm terrified. I have made

    so very many mistakes...the big kind that alter lives. Faced with another fork in the road how can I possibly have faith in my ability to choose the right one? My head and heart are in such opposition it's like a cracked up teeter totter and I'm getting a little nauseous.

    It Still Hurts

    I've been hurt, deeply. So deeply that I am still trying to heal. I've been rebuilding my walls around my heart again, slowly... brick by brick. I don't want to open myself up again. It's better to not feel at all then to be hurt again....I'm safe that way. Then you appeared...

    Any time I try to talk with people I don't know,

    I get scared. I don't know why. Even when I tell myself things like, "I'm happy being who I am!" I do still shut down around strangers. I don't let it stop me from talking to new people, but it's so hard. I do try. Anyone have any non-shutting down techniques? O.O

    Why I Get Afraid

     I have experienced anxiety since childhood- and can you imagine not a single person EVER recognized the feelings I was having as anxiety and I didn't even have a name for them until I was 40 years old. How my life got wasted because of not being able to give a name to the...

    My fear is crippling. It holds me captive, but the cage door is open. I am just too damn afraid of what's outside of it. So I remain inside it, surrounded by still more fear.  What I fear may never come to fruition, and from past experience, most of my fears rarely do...

    Scared is a major understatement.

    I'm mortified. I feel the change before I see it. I hate the emptiness and for once I can say I hate the nights. There's once again fear in me that I haven't felt in an extremely long time. It's the fear of constant rejection and the fear that I'll always be this alone. I can't...
