My Anxiety is Out of Control! 278 People

    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...

    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. ...

    Anxiety, Angry Dads, and College Dont Mix.

    I've discovered recently that I have anxiety problems, what with my first major anxiety attack a few weeks ago. I cannot describe how nerve-wracked I get over the simplest things, and usually become dispondent when larger problems arise, usually breaking down in the safety of my...

    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...

    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 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

    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.
