  • Anbody else suffer from hypochondria aka health anxiety?

  • Fear of public speaking?

    On my friends wedding I got a chance to make a toast. All eyes on me. On my mind I had only one thought "don't tell something stupid". So I started blushing, sweating, I was nervous and scared. my friend held my head and everything went well. How can I solve this problem? Could this be some kind of phobia?
  • Fear of public transportation and long journeys?

    I suffer from fear of public transportation, i.e busses, coaches, taxi's, trains, aeroplanes, and long journeys, and I was wondering if anyone else here suffers similar experiences from what I am about to write from bellow: I don't know how or why it started but I sure remember when. One of my ex girlfriends and i had a long distance relationship. We lived about four hours away from each other and we would both take it in turns to take the train to one another's houses and stay for a while. I was I think 14/15 years of age and had been suffering from severe depression and severe anxiety since I will say the age of 11 as that was when I was first officially diagnosed although I have always been an anxious person. Anyway, this one day it was my turn to take the train up to hers and for a while now the anxiety had been building on these journeys every time, and on this particular day something felt different, shall I say. I had boarded on to the train and I could see my Dad standing on the platform outside of my window and I suddenly just went berserk. I shouted through the window to my Dad, "I can't do this", and suddenly desperately needed the toilet and was hyperventilating, pouring with sweat, shaking uncontrolably, and I couldn't even talk! After i had been to the toilet about 10 times, I had been throwing up blood and blood was coming out from my behind also and suddenly everything went dark. I later woke up on the floor of the carriage of the train by the ticket guy and he called for help and I was taken off at the next station. I was so embarrassed and ashamed, I had to call my dad who luckily had not left the station after i had shouted to him "I can't do this" and came to get me straight away. I had to be taken to the hospital and get checked over etc, all to discover that I had IBS..? When I was a kid and would go on school trips, I never wanted to, i was too afraid but I was still made to go, and i would always throw up - embarrassing and shameful yet again for me and I would experience levels of anxiety but not to the level of the story up above. After that experience on the train, I tried going on to a bus. I had paid for my seat and the bus was about to set off, and I suddenly ran off the bus shouting to the driver to open the doors and let me off. And once again I was very embarrassed and ashamed. I had also tried to go on long journeys in the car back to my hometown, London, UK, Bournemouth where my auntie and cousin live, and other long journeys but that also got too much for me to bear. Every time I got anxious I would suddenly need the toilet without warning and would have to get my Dad or whoever was driving to pull over immediately in fear that I would soil myself. And now, at the age of 22, I still suffer from this. Even when I'm not going on a journey, as soon as I become anxious, I need the toilet immediately. My friends don't know about this at all, only my current girlfriend and my parents do. So when my friends ask me to go on a journey with them somewhere, I have to make up an excuse and lie to them. I hate having to do that. It has happened a lot when being in the car with my girlfriend going on a journey somewhere. Twice I have been in tears in the car because I thought I was about to soil myself. In my personal opinion of myself, and no one else, i feel that as a 22 year old man, I should not be suffering with this. I constantly tell myself "you know, you're not a kid, you're a grown man so start acting like one", and all other kinds of things. I am my own worst enemy at times, I do self sabotage a lot. I actually can't believe i'm writing this for all to see, but I need to know that I'm not alone and need any advice anyone can give me.

  • 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.
  • Stopping anxiety sweating in crowded places?

    I always start sweating while on the train or subway if there are a lot of people around me invading my personal space. The problem is when I sweat I sweat excessivly to the point where my shirt is wet like I had a shower. Is there a technique that helps to stay calm in these situations?
  • What is the best way to deal with extreme anxiety?

    I've had anxiety and OCD since I was thirteen (I'm 22 now) but I didn't start having panic attacks until I was around nineteen. Since then, I have been diagnosed with bipolar II disorder and my anxiety has reached an all time high. The anxiety is always there but it gets really bad at around noon and doesn't start to get better until four so for those few hours I am in utter hell. My palms and feet get incredibly sweaty and I have a sensation of pins and needles stabbing me all over my body. My body shakes and the feeling just gets worse. Suicidal thoughts come to my mind, not because I want to die but because I want relief from this unbearable agony. I take .5mg of Klonopin (Clonazepam) twice a day but I feel like I need something much stronger. I will have to talk to my doctor about this obviously but my question is, what is the best way to fight this anxiety? I know everyone reacts differently to different medication but does anyone get any relief from a certain medicine that you can take when you get panic attacks or really bad anxiety? What are your thoughts? Much thanks! :)
