  • Anxiety, Moods and just feeling flat. PLEASE HELP!

    Hey Guys, I am new here. And I am probably the worst when it come to going to the doctor about my symptoms. I know I suffer from major anxiety and have done for years. Panic attacks have somewhat calmed down and I am able to manage it. However 4 days ago, my husbands first time flying away in the mines and I became highly stressed days leading up to and 2 days after. It has made me feel tired, lifeless, dizzy, anxious, and overall low mood. I try to force myself to go to work, get kids ready for sports and so forth, I also find myself snapping and people and really overanalysing everything to the point where I get my stress levels elevated once again. However, prior to all of this, I seem to get this way for no reason either.. I am thinking it may be GAD?? And most of the time I have been excruciatingly anxious over my health, I think the absolute worst, that if I have a single symptoms, I think, what if I have cancer? My mind is playing total tricks on me, and at times due to all of this, I have recurrent negative thoughts that I feel as though I am going insane! It scares me even more and I get more anxious over the fact I feel this way cause I feel like I am going mental? Does that make sense? I am tired of it all. I refuse to take medication.... I have started on natural stuff to help me out. Brain fog is killing me, I feel so low and depressed. But yet I still go about my daily work? seems to come and go.. I also think its just part of having anxiety and worry and being highly stressed, also triggers this effect off as well. I also had 2 clients in my office (I am a banker) that have gone on about their children having major depression and the in depth detail - I become highly sensitive to all of this, I get depressed myself, I think its because I know I am prone to it? This is why I hate talking about this condition at times, it gets me all upset and feeling sad. I am felling like I am loosing control. :(
  • Do I suffer from anxiety disorder?

    Hey, can anyone respond me how to be sure that I am suffering from anxiety disorder? I mean I have gone through many online tests and they show I do have anxiety problems. But just curious to know if any medical test or such thing just for the sake of confirmation? By the way, I am male, 29.
  • Does anyone else have fear of going outside?

    So I am having trouble with being stuck in my apartment due to my anxiety and fear, I wondered if anyone also had the same issue? I would like to move forward but I am getting little help at the moment and wondered if anyone had any advice? Some people are just like get up and go out but they don't realize how strong the fear and anxiety are. Not sure where to go from here, I have become quite isolated now and even due to some other circumstances fear my neighbors. I am feeling quite hopeless about the whole thing at this point and any help would be greatly appreciated!
  • Existential Anxiety

    I'm 20 and I've been having some hardcore existential anxiety, I always long for answers that cannot be answered. I always find myself overthinking? life in itself. I never used to have this problem until about a year or two ago but it's becoming much worse. It's anxiety that I feel I cannot escape from. I know I'm still young and what not but all I ever think about is is this all a simulation? If so who or what is behind it all? I never used to have anxieties but it all just kind of hit me at once and is quite overwhelming. No one I know my age has these same anxieties about life or their future. I always find myself thinking about how irrelevant the human race is and how we're all just specs of specs of a spec of dust. I can't stop questioning what this life is and how life itself even works. I feel like I can't live a normal life because of how intense my curiosity is about literally everything. I can't meditate because of how much shit is going on in my mind 24/7, I don't find yoga to be relaxing, therapy is quite pointless (I've seen atleast 4 different therapists/psychiatrists and none of them have helped me in the slightest) and I just feel like a lost cause. I've tried my best to explain my situation and I hope it made sense somewhat. I would love to talk with like minded people. Why am I feeling these feelings and thoughts so deeply to where it affects me physically and mentally?
  • How do I not feel drained in my own home?

    Hey, so I just joined. Some back story for the above question: My husband and I invited a friend to move in with us about a year ago. This friend had just graduated college was kicked out of her parents home and was jobless. Now this friend has a job. All three of us have some mental health issues. I have anxiety/depression which I take medication for. My husband has some anger/paranoia which he goes to a counselor and therapist for. Our friend has depression. Anyway recently it seems like everyone is just tense. My husband and this friend at separate times come to me with near identical complaints about the other and how they won't listen, are toxic and manipulative etc. Additionally this friend is constantly complaining about how they don't have friends, how we don't care about them, how we never spend time with them. I am already incredibly drained from long unpredictable work hours and doings tasks all day long that tax my anxiety. Like public speaking, phone calls, open office environment, etc. When I get home I do try to be available for my friend but there works hours are even longer and more unpredictable than mine. However I just I feel like I am walking on eggshells in my own home. I don't know what to do. Does anyone have any advice or resources I can use?
  • I'm scared I might have DVT! (Deep vein thrombosis)

    I'm an 18 year old male and my leg has been hurting for like a week now a ton and sometimes I get chest pains to go with it. I know its bad to google symptoms with anxiety but I read and feel like I might have DVT (Deep vein thrombosis) My leg isn't swollen or feel hot to touch but it does hurt and I get chest and throat squeezing and pain. I got an ekg and cbc blood test two days ago and it came out as fine but I ended up reading online that those tests won't tell the doctors about DVT because it needs specfic test. Now for the worst part I learned that DVT can give you pulmonary emoblism where it kills your lungs with a clot so now im even more scared! I have nobody to take me or willing to take me to a hospital to get checked out because I complain to much they say. Im like too nervous to sleep afraid I'll die in my sleep but I haven't injured my leg and I tend to get up and move around a ton. I'm 18 years old and a guy am I being over dramatic and will I be okay?
  • I'm scared to break up...

    So I have been with my boyfriend for over 2 and a half years... we both have been through tons together but over a year ago I made the decision that I didn't feel like I loved him anymore... he wasn't supportive of me when I had anorexia, I then was diagnosed with pre cervical cancer and still he wasn't supportive. It was all about weed. It's been way over a year and iv tried to ignore these signs. But is this what's causing my anxiety? The fact I'm pushing myself to be with someone who doesn't help me and has different interests to me etc. I'm scared of breaking up with him... I'm also scared of the after math or how he could react...
  • Is anyone disappointed with their body?

    Is anyone unhappy with their body? I'm 26 and still don't like my breasts, especially that they're big. It just had to run in the family. I always wanted to be flat-chested and I get jealous when I see a woman with no boobs or barely at all. I think I started developing them at the age of 12, but I didn't get my first bra until I turned 13. By the time I had to get a bra, I cried. My mom didn't understand why I was so upset. I'm fine being a woman, I suppose. I don't want to go through surgery to become a man. I'd rather consider myself as a tomboy. I prefer to wear boy's clothes and a suit instead of a dress. I never liked dresses or anything frilly. I also don't like to wear tank tops or v-necks. It's hard for me to try to ignore my breasts. It bothers me and makes me self-conscious while I get more worried thoughts about what other people think. I'm also sensitive that my breasts touch my skin without a bra or the desk when I'm trying to focus on homework. I constantly wonder if anyone had noticed. I'd be happier with a flat-chest.
  • Is there a buddy system where we can support each other during episodes?

    I think it would be great to have some sort of buddy system where we can count on someone to communicate with (doesn't matter how: skype, messaging, etc) that would benefit each person get past their episode.
