    I'm battling anxiety

    and mood swings and it's tearing all of my relationships apart. I feel helpless and worthless and I don't know what to do or how to change. My emotional responses to seemingly small happenings will sometimes be inappropriate and grandiose. I'm terrified of losing my family, my...

    Because the world doesn't look right to me.

    There are hungry people who need to be fed, homeless folks who need a place to stay. I can't understand how property can be private. I thought the earth belonged to all those who walked it. Money doesn't really exist, and neither does time. I think we've been brainwashed into...

    My panic attacks are getting more frequent now,

    among other things. It's getting to the point that it seriously interferes with my daily activities since I can't get anything done if I feel like I'm going to die. I just want them to go away.

    I get in very self destructive moods sometimes.

    I want to binge eat, or buy a pack of cigarettes, or be mean to people that care about me. But somehow it's so great. I feel powerful. I want to **** **** up, inflict pain on myself and other people, and it makes me feel so good.

    I Don't Know What To Do

    I am increasingly concerned that I may have suffered a breakdown of some sort. Maybe a few. I have done little to address my issues as I am crippled by fear. This is my first foray into admitting I am in trouble. So it is a positive step. It is a splendid day outside but I...
