    I guess that's why is happening right now, but it's to the point to where I'm getting sick from it. I worry about those I love so much that I get emotionally sick, or catch colds easier because my immune system decreases from all the stress. i have a lot of friends with a lot...

    More Than Myself

    I definately worry about those I love. I am not a control freak or anything, but I do try to protect them if I can. I do everything I can for them. This includes my friends as well. I don't have that many close friends, so I hold the ones I do have very close. Yes, sometimes...

    She Threatened To Kill Herself

    Honestly, I don't understand people sometimes. My "Ex" best friend saw me walking with her Ex boyfriend. He is my best guy friend and I drove him to our junior orientation because he had no ride. When she saw us, she gave us the meanest glare I have ever seen. If looks could...

    I will always care about the people I love. There is no way that I couldnt. Maybe that sounds strange, yet its how I feel. If I'm worrying about family or friends they will always be in my heart and I will always be worried about them!

    I worry about my boyfriends safety.

    he wants to become an HVAC technician. people working in that field make great money, but are putting their lives at risk (getting shocked, burned, injured badly) I'm proud of him for going to school for that, especially since he's doing a great job and getting good grades, i...

    I constantly have this perpetual fear

    that I'm going to lose my best friend somehow. Not through anything personal between us, but through something literally happening to him, like a car accident. There's no substance to this, right? Am I just so hugely attached to him that I'm just mortified of losing him? In all...

    and it didn't work out. She's now committed to another guy, and they've been together over 2 years now. They're engaged. She just told me she's expecting his kid, and while I am so happy for her, I can't help but worry. He's a good guy, but they've hit a bit of a rough patch...

    Sorry, I Worry!

    I'm in a vicious circle. I'm a worrier and my boyfriend doesn't want me to worry. So usually he avoids telling me things he knows I would worry about before-hands and then I notice that something is wrong and I start to worry and imagine all sorts of stuff, usually worse than the...

    that something is wrong, it's not much but it sets something off in your head worrying. Im overthinking everything and coming the worse conclusions. I'm scared someone I care about is going to hurt them-self or worse and there's nothing I can do. I'm paranoid I guess, but I'd...
