    So 9 months ago I had an anxiety attack out of

    nowhere. I had just finished exercising and was thinking over the many midterm exams I had pending for the following week and suddenly I felt my face flush and a hot flash slid down my back. My chest was heavy and all I could think of was how hard it was to breath and how...

    I HATE Anxiety.

    I was supposed to be going to try to get a vehicle at the Chevy place Monday morning, but the same familiar feeling was back again. Sick at my stomach, dizzy, headache, shaking, feeling my heartbeat in the back of my throat, chest tightening, throat tightening, trouble breathing...

    My anxiety continues to be a terrible

    inconvenience. When I try to work through problems, I end up having mental breakdowns, and panic attacks. I laugh, and laugh, and laugh, until I'm sick. I have a constant buzz of anxiety in me. I can't relax. My therapist doesn't help very much, and neither does the medication I...

    Happy New Years 2013

    I have always thought I had mild to moderate anxiety . It always only happened at night, for as long as I could remember. I have to sleep with heavy blackout curtains blocking out the moonlight, even as a young adult seeing the darkness outside, glimpses of the branches in the...

    It's so hard to live with.

    Before I got medication for it, I felt like I couldn't leave the house. I wouldn't go to school for weeks. My mind would go on and on and on. I wouldn't eat either, I thought I wouldn't choke and die and so many other things. I'm trying to handle it but it's so very hard.

    No matter how good things seem to go i always

    think of the what can go wrong. When my family treats me like the black sheep of my family i start going through the what ifs and worry I'll never be good enough. I don't know how to control my anxiety at all. I've cried because how bad it is some times.

    I'm Always Nervous

    I never leave my house. I don't have any friends. I always look down. I hate making eye contact with people -- it feels too awkward. I stress about school every minute of my life. The only way to fall asleep is taking medicine that allows me to pass out and avoid laying...

    Sometimes when my heart palpitates I remember

    how it would do so when I was being passionate....and I'd give anything to feel that way again... To think of how I'd never give up in life no matter what it throws at me because thinking that always made me feel strong... What has happened to me?.... Why can't I just FEEL...

    I ruins my life, it seems like no one

    understands and no one is able to calm me down. That's not their fault of course, but I just can't help but think what my life would be without it.
