    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.

    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.

    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.

    .. It can be even at home thinking about something in the future I think I should be nervous about and then it ruins my whole day.. I'm sick of it, am I going to be like this for the rest of my life? I get nervous about big things in my life months before they happen.. How am I...

    I get nervous all the times

    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...

    Seriously.

    I fidget. I twitch. I tap on everything I touch. I have a ridiculous nervous tic that forces me to either be constantly doing something with my fingers or nearly faint. I sway back and forth when I stand; my life in ROTC was hell because standing still was so damn near...

    A Nervous Nell

    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...

    Those Damn Nerves

    Yes it's true even some of the great ones get nervous as well. I get nervous all the time, but I always try to stay cool and calm. If I'm going to the doctor for a check up or if I'm going to a big gathering I always find myself getting nervous for no reason at all.Sometimes I...

    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 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.

    Jeez, I'm nervous as a cat.

    My heart is thumping away. Bad energy flowing. I don't have any reason to feel this way. There's nothing new bothering me. I can feel it in my stomach, it's a sick feeling. I wish I had something to calm me down. But I don't. Exercise didn't help at all. I hate being alone...

    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...
