  • Any helpful tips to get over anxiety

    So hi I'm new here. Atm I'm living with my parents, i finished school last year and felt too anxious to go to college.. it's been almost six months and I haven't done anything with my life, I've finished school and I don't have anything to show for it. I don't have anyone to talk to about this stuff so I'm usually up all night worrying about the future. The last few days have been torture and tonight has been one of the worst in my life. I honestly think that i'm going insane and that terrifies me. I keep worrying about things I usually wouldn't care about? Like for example; the last few days I've been freaking out about global issues and convincing myself that a big change is coming or that the world would end/ I've also become very forgetful. I've also been very suicidal lately and i don't want to start with meds.. I just want to be able to sleep at night, to be able to go out for a few drinks and not worry about stupid things. I hate how I feel. I don't want to accept that this is my fate, i have no idea what i even want as a future, i just don't want to be scared so much by everything. I feel so trapped, I don't know much about any remedies besides medication so i'd really love tips to help me get out of this rut.
  • Anyone else experience morning nausea as a result of anxiety?

    I experience this almost every day. It slowly subsides as the day goes by and in the evening I feel just fine. In the morning after it's the same all over again.

    Trying to rule out whether it's my diet causing this.
  • Fear of disturbance of sleep?

    Does anyone have panic attacks when they cannot fall asleep? i.e. someone keeping them awake, snoring, etc.
  • Has anyone ever taken a med then stopped and when you started taking it again...seemed to experience side effects?

    I was on lexapro..then taken off...then paxil then taken off...then zoloft and it seemed to work so i took it but stopped for about 6 months thinking I could do it on my own...then when I started taking it again I began to experience like almost a foggy headed feeling, nausea, possibly increase in anxiety...I'm not sure what symptoms are actually from the med or just from the anxiety in general...
  • I'm Exausted! I don't know what to do. Can you help me?

    I have recently started college in a new town where I don't know anyone, I love the college and the friends I have made are lovely. I am not a shy person (although I have my moments). Anyway, I haven't been into college for two weeks now, I'm waking up with morning sickness, throwing up, and tightness in my chest and throat and a crazy heartbeat.. On a normal day I can feel my heart beat and have a tight chest and have waves of sickness throughout the day. My diet is good, At night I sleep like a log (And for ages, like 12 hours is normal.) I'm quite a fearful person, I don't think I have extreme OCD, but I'm very particular about things, so its possible. I am also very claustrophobic to the point where being hugged or being in a building i feel i cant leave feels like I'm suffocating. I am currently having acupuncture, and just finished some hypnotherapy which I'm not convinced has worked. I know nothing about anxiety and how to cure or deal with it, or how to know what the problem it is, Can i be tested? shall I try Therapy? i don't know, I don't really want to start taking pills, but I need to move on with my life and this is really holding me back! Please help if you can.
  • I'm new here I really need some help. I'm uncontrollably dizzy and shaky and it feels like I'm dying. My temperature is all over the place. I've been getting worse for 18 months and I am now very critical please help.

  • Phobias with GAD is driving me insane

    I was diagnosed with generalized anxiety disorder a little over two years ago. My neurologist, who I see for my temporal lobe epilepsy, prescribed Clonazepam to combat the anxiety attacks that I have. However, the level of severity changes with both the seasons and situations that I am in. Since it is sliding into Autumn and Winter, all I think is that everyone is going to start getting sick and my emetophobia is the first thing that takes over causing anxiety attacks three times as bad as the ones I typically get. When I have an attack nausea is the first side effect which due to my phobia exacerbates the situation in a circular motion, making it perpetually get worse. When you lump my basic hypochondria into the situation, it just doesn't seem to get any better whatsoever. I've become so nervous all of the time that I literally feel like I'm going insane. If it wasn't for my willpower I would have broken down a long time ago. I'm trying this website because I'm trying to find a place that can truly help, even in the littlest bit. I'm losing it and no one in my life is understanding or remotely helpful and I don't know what to do.
  • please help me

    I have not been able to leave my house for almost 6 months now. I cannot push myself to go. My parents have to force me in the car and I have only left a total of 3 times (all 3 times I was forced). Every time I get in the car to go somewhere, I get halfway down my street, start panicking and go home. I can't even get to the end of my neighborhood without panicking. I am tired of living like this. I am tired of feeling helpless and worthless. When I panic, I feel nauseous and its so incredibly uncomfortable. How do I get over this? Please help me. I am open to any and all advice.
