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.

  • I feel so depressed, empty and anxious. Yesterday when I found out about Chester's death I immediately lost my appetite and broke down crying. Now I can't talk, not matter how hard I try. I feel like I've lost a family member or my bestest friend. As a toddler I used to dance to his music and now I still do. I don't think I will get over this. It also broke being clean from self-harm because I...

    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?

    Lump in Throat

    6
    Hi again everyone, I was wondering if people had any tips on dealing with the dreaded lump/frog in your throat feeling. I don't experience this specfic symptom of anxiety all the time, but when I do it's for at least a week. I hate the feeling and didn't know if there were any other people who experience this and how you deal with it. The funny thing is, I don't get the feeling on days/weeks when...

    Ill Off School and Not Wanting To Go In Tomorrow..

    I'm off-school right now because of a horrible cold. It gave me a panic attack. I couldn't breathe for, like, only five seconds and that made me hyperventilate and I thought I was going to die so I started coughing and spluttering and breathing too much. I was allowed to stay in bed for today and I'm at my computer (duh) now. Tomorrow I am going to fully come out to my friends. I wanted to hide...

    The Cause of My Anxiety

    Today I am going to say something I have said before, but this time I gave no remorse.For years I took my grandmother's side. I accepted society's view of granny's being sweet and pure. However, I could never entirely understand why my father was an alcoholic or why family seemed to avoid my grandmother. After living with her and really getting to know her, I now know why. My grandmother is a...
