    There's honestly not many days

    that go by where I don't have one or more panic attacks anymore.. It just plain sucks. I have finally started to see a therapist but haven't seen results yet. I have Xanax to take as needed, but I try not to take it unless I'm in dire need. I've tried breathing, yoga, exercise...

    Discovering I Have Anxiety.

    Well I think I have GAD, and that it has gotten worse since my divorce and moving to another state. I just thought it was how I was, and that I was protecting myself by not going around things that caused me anxiety. Like parties, large crouds, speaking or being in front of...

    I have missed so many opportunities in my life

    from having anxiety. Not going to parties.. Saying no to hanging out with new friends.. Etc.. I'm always afraid what people are saying about me or if I'm bothering people - even just by my presence. I wish I could just get over it but it's an every day struggle

    Help!

    I am a recovering addict. I self medicated due to severe anxiety and depression among other things. I also would load up prior to going out in public to ease anxiety. I loved concerts and shows but would flip out and have to leave if I wasn't high. So when I came into recovery, I...

    I just realized at this moment how bad my

    anxiety is. About 5 years ago I was diagnosed with depression and anxiety and put on medication. About 4 years ago I was taken of and I've been alright up until about six months ago. I just realized every day I get so nervous about everything. It's a struggle to go to work, it...

    Hello Anxiety, Welcome To My World.

    Anxiety wasn't always a problem in my life. I was generally known as someone who could keep their crap together fairly well. I achieved good grades, was a well behaved kid, so on, so on. Usually people don't suspect someone like that to be so anxious inside that it's slowly...

    I think i may have anxiety.

    I try telling my mum why i cry most nights and why I hide from people. I try to tell her what's bothering me but it ends out to be an argument. Everything in this house ends up in some kind of argument. I'm pretty sick of it. I get hardly any sleep, I have negetive thinking...

    I worry about everything.

    It gets to the point where I worry so much that I panic. I am on medication for this, but I know without it I would be a nervous wreck.

    Since I started college I've been dealing with

    a lot of anxiety that I haven't had to handle before. When I am faced with a problem or something out of my control I completely break down and give up. I feel as though nothing I do is good enough and can't find it in me to even force myself to go to class lately. I'm going to...

    before and knows how to get rid of it or any techniques that would help me deal with it? My anxiety acts up when I have to go to the grocery store!! It's ridiculous!! I don't know what I'm so anxious about! (Deep breathing does not work) Any tips or advice? Please!!

    Over the years the thought of having sex with

    my husband causes me major anxiety. I know what you immediately conclude, that I don't love him or that I don't enjoy it. But honestly, it's neither. Our marriage is pretty lousy in general, and if you ask me it's because we no longer are emotionally close, barely friends. And...

    Slowly I am dealing with my problems.

    I'm learning to just feel things and understand that feelings aren't real. I am not my problems. I am not my past. As strange as that sounds. Actions are not the only thing a person is. People tend to forget that. Why people do things should also be considered. So I should...
