    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...

    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...

    Since I was little I have been a bundle of nervous energy. I fidget a lot and when I am really uncomfortable, I put my arms over my head and make a strange noise with my mouth. what makes it worse is that I can't really control it, when I get nervous or anxious it just happens. I...

    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...

    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'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...
