I Have Anxiety Problems

My Anxiety is Out of Control! 260 People

    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...

    I hate to say this without really talking to

    someone about it. But yes I'm pretty sure I do have anxiety. I just left a graduation. And I thought it'd be fine but it was a bigger crowd than I thought. It's finally over. During the graduation I started getting the urge to throw up. Now my stomach is in knots, I have a...

    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.

    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...

    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...
