and words fall out.. a jumbled alphabetic chaos that only few can sift thru to fully understand. The letters from my words strung out in front of him like a jigsaw puzzle waiting impatiently to be solved. My skin feels bare, scaly and freezing cold. Vulnerability has never been...
that my anxiety is aggravating to her. You think it's not aggravating to me? I have to live with it, day in and day out. Put yourself in my shoes for a while. Maybe you'll understand. I can't even go to the grocery store with panicking. I can't be in social situations without...
as some of my emails still go there but I'm worried what my stalker has said. I've not checked in a week. If he's only bothered me once at least I can take that as he's slowly giving up. What would you do?
after the NewYear, I lost 10 lbs but began to experience Anxiety and paranoia also and after reading some things, I found that I'm not alone. Has anyone else gone through this? I read that the ketosis somehow doesn't allow for as much seratonin creation in the brain.
and anxiety i decided to go to the Doctor But i used to feel pain in my heart and trepidation ,so i went on to Cardiologist because i didnt know where should i go ,even the doc laughed at me "hey brother why are you here at such a young age i dont want to see you here "he said...
I really hate how my anxiety likes to creep in any time it feels like it. I can go from perfectly content to anxious in a matter of seconds. Things that really aren't that big of a deal seem to really bother me sometimes. It will go on until I am mentally and phyically exhausted...
and anxiety overwhelms me... I try and remind myself there is ALWAYS something to be thankful for. It calms my anxiety when I walk outside and thank God for everything- starting with the air I breathe.
Try it. Everything will be ok.
where I can't go anywhere in public without my brother. I have to hold onto his arm at all times or else I go into a panic mode and start to cry and shake. He's gotten used to it and doesn't mind it so much anymore though.
Not only is it annoying to feel sick from being anxious, but it makes it so difficult to keep a job. I'm so done with feeling like crap constantly from it. I'm sick of letting it affect me in numerous ways. I just want to be okay. I really don't think that's too much to ask...
puking? I have a big project to work on and it gives me a lot of anxiety to the point where I have anxiety attacks if I try to work on it.
I managed to calm down slightly with music but the constant trembling and nausea aren't letting me focus. Any advice?
okay for a while.
This always happens.. I'm good for a while, then I go back to being anxious all the time! I can't sleep at night.
I just need to learn how to clear my mind, and stop worrying about things I can't control.
I wish it was that simple..
thoughts in my head:
"Oh my fooking gawd.
Okay you can do this.
Start out loud.
Why are you going slow!?! Speed up!
Am I seriously the only one talking?
Omg. Send help.
Come on focus. Last sentence.
Okay. I did it. Omg."
Maybe then I wouldn't panic over dumb **** all the damn time.
Is it weird that I mostly never cry? I only ever do when getting yelled at by my parents but that's it. I sorta feel indifferent to other things that are supposed to make me cry.
to about my anxiety and depression. But it seriously doesn't feel like I do. Yet I don't want to talk to that one person about it any more because I'm so scared they're gonna get tired of my **** and leave.
1. Being told we’re being stupid or that it’s all in our heads.
But it’s OK for you to complain of a headache, or to seek sympathy from others when you suffer from the flu or a stomach virus? Just because my illness is mental, doesn't make it any less valid or real...
I want it so bad, but I am so terrified.
I'd be moving down to Florida, away from family, friends, and my dog.
I have never lived away from home and if I get the offer, I would be agreeing to live in Florida for either 6 or 9 months, depending on what program I go for.
since my early teens. Having severe anxiety affects my performance tremendously. Every time it is my turn to perform, I am sick to my stomach. I am scared if my performance will go well, or of I will have a breakdown. It's always a 50/50 chance for me. When I'm not in perfect...
feet hit the floor until I lay my head down at night. It's difficult to have friendships, and work is very trying.
Occasionally I have fleeting moments of "calm" I guess you would call it. In these precious seconds I feel at peace, confident and steady.
Then almost as suddenly...
You have got this. Remember nothing is as bad at it seems.
I know how hard it is, that panic that rushes over your whole body and takes over, the constant worry. Just breathe, don't worry over things you can't change, you cannot predict the future.. Enjoy today..
who has anxiety, and they ask you to order their food for them, or stand next to them when they buy something, or reassure them countless times exactly the time and place where you will be meeting them at.
DO NOT ROLL YOUR EYES, DO NOT SIGH IN EXASPERATION, AND DO NOT TELL...
I wanted to talk to her about my anxiety and how bad it gets, along with my panic attacks. I have been having a lot of trouble breathing, and I just wanted to get it checked out so I can rule out other things like asthma and allergies. Just as I thought, my lungs are clear, so...
my anxiety has gotten worse again, but is happening more often than in the past. I've always been pretty good about keeping it under check, having elaborate routines to calm myself before having full blown attacks, at least long enough to remove myself from the public eye.
Trying to soothe the panicked flutter in my chest
The fearful little creature,
Afraid of the unknown
Breathe in, breathe out
The tension leaves my body
The creature is calm for a moment
Before it starts shaking again
Breathe, just keep breathing
Breathe, until the creature is...
hard it is. Even the most simplest of tasks can turn out to be the hardest for someone. Before you go and make fun of someone for not doing something because they're scared, maybe you should think and put yourself in their shoes, then you'll know how they feel. Some people just...
Why do I feel like an elephant is sitting on top of my chest? Yet the doctors have no explanation for my chest pain. Hmmm… So my heart is fine, according to the heart monitors and EKG. Maybe a chest x-ray would tell us something. I thought there would be something wrong for...
