Anxiety Support Group

Anxiety is a physical condition marked by intense and persistent feelings of distress, fear, angst or dread. General anxiety caused by routine day-to-day stresses usually passes quickly and is experienced by almost everyone at one time or another. However, such feelings that linger over time and are very difficult to cope with, and which lack a clear cause, may indicate an anxiety disorder.

    Anyone taking Prozac?

    I was just increased from 60 to 80 mg.  Seems to help.  Anyone take even higherdose?  Can a real high dose stop anxiety and worry?  Not just lessen it?

    Natural Anxiety Cures...

    I need some natural anxiety cures. I take anxiety medicine on occasion, but that doesn't cure the problem, so natural solutions would be best and if anyone can give me any tips that really help them and are effective. Exercise is out of the question for me. I do know of a few....1) Meditation - very effective and relaxing!2) Zen music3) Essential Oils4) Walking 5) Thinking about a naturistic or...

    High Anxiety

    I've been under a lot of stress to the point I'm getting physically sick. I feel nasaeus and if I'm upset enough will throw up, I have had stomach problems and even diarrhea when I get so upset. I've been getting stress headaches and just having constant insomnia. I try to relax and remind myself it will pass and I'm okay but my thoughts keep turning into painful things that make my anxiety and...

    Unsupporting parents.

    hello. I am Alex. I am a trans male and my parents don't support me. I'm scared of going out in public with my parents because what if I see someone i know and they call me he-him. My parents always correct people of my gender (to she-her) no matter who I'm with. I get constant anxiety moments when I'm going in public. I don't know how to get them to support me. Or to guide them to using my...

    Hi I'm new

    Hi I'm new to the group. I'm 19.  I think I have depression and anxiety which will very well likely cost me my job. Then I'll have to go back home. Where my parents don't understand and I've lost all the plans I've had for myself for my future. I've been having random anxiety attacks and they seem to keep getting worse. Any suggestions on how to help it?

    Out of nowhere, I feel super anxious and depressed.. It seems to come and go but tonight is very bad. I just want to cry. I have a 12 yr old boy with some special needs and I am practically raising him all by myself.. I feel so disconnected from everyone in a way. It's hard to explain but I am trying hard to make friends and I am pretty socially awkward. I am in network marketing (Multi level...

    A kind word

    I am having a terrible day! I don't have anyone else to talk to. I need some kind words from you  I am feeling so sick but I suffer from health anxiety so I have no parameters to know how bad it really is or not. I am scared to go to the doctor, to be exagerating what is going on with me and to get send to do pretty invasive studies because I say I feel horrible when it may not be necessary. But...

    Plagued with Guilt

    Hi~So in March I gained 18 lbs. in 2 weeks - I was diagnosed last month with a hormonal imbalance affecting my thyroid, among other things.  This could have been triggered by poor eating habits, as I used to get so anxious about eating too much that I would go for very long periods of time without eating anything at all.  I also thought I was fat before the weight gain, even though I was in...

    I don't know what is anxiety anymore

    Hi,I have been dealing with anxiety for over 4 years, and i thought I learned how to recognize it but now it's taking a new turn. I have been feeling nauseous and had an upset stomach (including stomach pain) for a month. But this last week was brutal. My primary physician only saw me for a minute and made a test for an ulcer ( I don't have the results yet) but I don't think it's an ulcer, I...

    By way of introduction...

I have been diagnosed with Generalized Anxiety and have a history of panic attacks and flashbacks related to...
