    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...

    My Anxiety Has Taken Me Over

    My mother always used to joke when I was a kid about how I never worried about anything and how I'd never get an ulcer. I wish that never changed. I remember my first anxiety attack, I was 20 and a junior in college. I had just lost my viriginty and thought I was pregnant. My...

    Worrying...

    So I was talking to my new friend tonight.  And of course I couldn't stop applogizing every two mins. Then I started up my worrying and stressing over stuff. And he caught me.. He kept telling me to stop. And to stop putting myself down, and stop saying I'm sorry. ...

    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.

    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...

    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

    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...

    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...
