  • Anxiety has kept me from living my life for over 40 years. I'm 52 and I feel that I will always be alone.

    My anxiety keeps me from living a fulfilling life. I can't meet people. I can't go the the polls to vote. I just don't want to leave the house. I just feel like I would be better off dead away from all the pain and sorrow.

  • Best medication for social anxiety?

    I was wondering what the best medication for social anxiety for a sixteen year old would be? I have been on Zoloft before and it did not work too well.
  • Does anyone else struggle with anxiety making them feel like a horrible person?

    Does anyone else struggle with anxiety making them feel like a horrible person? I've noticed through talking with my therapist that anytime someone offers constructive criticism for instance or anytime my mom is even slightly irritated at me for some sort of behavior or something, it's like it overshadows everything else and all of a sudden I'm 100% awful and instead of it being this small thing my mom's talking to me about, it becomes this huge deal in my head like I'm just an all around bad person. I snap out of it eventually, but it takes a while and in that time I just feel worthless. I don't know if I can explain it better than that. I'm aware of it, but I also don't know how to prevent it.
  • How do you explain anxiety to your friends?

    I tried telling my friends, described the medication that i was on for it and they laughed. I laughed along with them to hide the fact that I was hurt. Now I just seem to distance myself from them when I go through periods of very high anxiety. Does anyone else do this too?
  • How do you overcome the difficulty of talking to someone about how you feel on a daily basis with anxiety and depression?

  • I'm stuck

    Lately I've been feeling stuck, like I'm not improving. I'm not getting worse either. But it seems like I've been doing better. But I'm not sure if it's because I am getting better and the working on myself is actually doing something. Or I'm only feeling like I'm doing better because the main trigger for my anxiety and depression is momentarily gone. I just don't know what to do. The working on myself is expressing my emotions and feelings more, and trying to reach out to my friends. I've been figuring out what Happens during an attack and what helps. I know myself pretty well in that area. But I want to be able to do more then just coping with it. I want it to get less. I only have no idea how
  • Shud I try socialising? Forget real life, can't even manage it online.

    I could never socialise with people, throughout my childhood, I was mostly a loner. When later in life I met interesting people, I couldn't manage to befriend them. Even if I did, it wouldn't last because of anxiety in dealing with them.(Sure most of you familiar with that) I've been very lonely, I too have a need to socialise so I tried it online. I tried many forums especially where I could meet people of similar likes etc. But that too didn't last, I liked it at first but it always ended the same way, I feel people are very harsh to me (However irrational it may seem I just couldn't shake it off my head, and it at times ruined my day) I've come to a consensus that I shouldn't socialise at all, The place where I come, I feel totally out of place there anyway. Any advice? Thank you for reading my long post. Appreciate it.
