    I Fidget Too Much

    I desperately try not to fidget so much but I do. I think a big part of it is that I grew up in a house where my mom would yell at random. She's probably bipolar. Anyway, she has a low pain tolerance and very powerful lungs. I would often hide under bed after locking the doors...

    My Friend Told Me I'm A Nervous Person

    I must be a nervous wreck.  Is nervous the same as anxious or phobic or panic?  This sucks because I think I have all of them!   My friend told me I'm a nervous person, so of course I'm trying to analyze it  because I have OCD too...

    It's Not Fair!

    Why me? All my life, I've been this way. I don't think I even remember a time I wasn't nervous when I'm NOT alone. I want to do so much; Go out, Have fun, Join Sports, Make friends, but I can't because of my stupid nervous personality. I'm in Track and Field and I admit I'm good...

    My Space

    I don't like leaving room. I get very nervous, butterflies, heart races and I hate it! If I was good looking then I would feel better. I was always a loser.

    I Need Advice

    I'm always nervous and anxious sometimes I don't even no why. I always bite my cheek and it's such a bad habit. Does anyone have any advice? It's the worst habit. I feel that it makes me more nervous and gives me anxiety when doing it.

    Seriously.

    Nervous

     It doesn't show, I feel it on the inside though.  Also, the night before my wedding, this girl said; you don't seem nervous at all.  I told her the same as above, it doesn't appear it visibly but internally it is a differen't story.

    It Takes A Toll Sometimes.

    I guess this is somewhat true about myself. I wouldn't say I'm a nervous person all the time, but I get very easily nervous about things though. Such as change, when trying to talk to new people, or if I don't know what's going on. This all actually started not too long ago. I...

    I fear someone hurting me and I fear hurting myself. My legs shake with nerves all the time and I shrink into myself. I'm scared.
