    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...

    This is great. Hope you can detect the sarcasm

    there....I get nervous about even the small little things no one seems to notice. I do have an anxiety problem, but I blame genetics.

    Why am I like this? I want to be

    that fun-loving and great to be with person. In my heart I'm not nervous, but my body speaks otherwise. Looking into others' eyes for prolonged periods is a skill... Brainstorming for ideas to start a conversation is an art... Smiling is my struggling intent...

    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...

    It Isn't Normal.

    I can't look at the TV because ALL they do is play Call of Duty, so I can't look at the screen.My heart is pounding out of my chest. No kidding.

    I am quite a nervous character.

    It's funny really because people don't actually understand that about me. I remember when I bumped into someone I hadn't seen in a few years, they approached me and we talked but didn't exchange numbers. Through talking to a mutual friend I was told I came across annoyed and...

    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...

    I feel nervous all the time.

    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.

    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.

    I was never one to consider myself a nervous

    person until the last few years. I wonder if this is due to my childhood, or is it just a part of growing up.

    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've been constantly nervous

    for the past 18 months. I had a lot of change in my life and some very upsetting situations happened. I'm nervous because I'm trying to get back on my feet now and a lot of things aren't in my control. I have a good friend who tells me to trust in the process and pray on it and...

    and every little thing can make me be so nervous to the point my mind will be blank and I will suddenly forget anything I have in my head. It's really depressing sometimes. As a Highly Sensitive Person, I tend to think about that deeply while blaming myself for not able to be...

    When I was little, I could never spend the night at people's houses because I thought terrible things were going to happen to my parents while I was away. I have the best parents ever and grew up in a very happy, stable environment, so I don't know where these feelings came from...

    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...

     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.
