Im 22 and ive 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 cant have my back to people i dont 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 dont have my meds, but im getting better at realizing when i have irrational paranoid thoughts.
a lot of people dont 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.
