Im 22 and I've dealt with my anxiety since I was thirteen. I have PTSD driven anxiety, im also a "cutter" and on meds for depression and generalized anxiety. I have weekly Therapist meetings, and used to have to do group twice a month.
I can't have my back to people I don't know, like in crowds or restaurants. Strangers make me nervous, as in, if a man walks into a room and he gives me "off" vibes, I get shakey and jumpy.
I sometimes have a bit of spacial anxiety, where I have to get out of wherever I am NOW, not for any other reason than my pulse is up, my mouth is dry, my palms are sweating, im shaking, nauseous, edgy etc.
I get paranoid if I don't have my meds, but im getting better at realizing when I have irrational paranoid thoughts.
A lot of people don't understand why its so hard to just keep going every day. Sometimes just waking up is a chore. Some days it hurts, some days I wake up afraid for no reason.
I never thought of there being a thread for the anxious, lol. This could be nice.
