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.

    My Anxiety

    Makes me feel like I'm Trapped. Like I can't breathe. Like being inside an airplane or a closed space. Going outside doesn't help because it's the whole state I'm trapped in.

    Physical Symptoms, help!!!!!!!!

    8
    I have certainly accepted the fact that I am an anxious person. However, sometimes I have a hard time accepting that some of the physical symptoms are happening because of my anxiety. Sometimes my hands twitch, especially my thumbs. I also sometimes have tingling in my face/lips! Occasionally I'll feel pins and needles in my hands and of course I experience chest discomfort. Especially in the...

    Okay, so back to school. After the beef that happened between me and my friends two months ago, things got super awkward but spring break really helped with that. I began talking to them a tiny bit today and they responded and such, so I know things are going well, that PATIENCE is seriously what I need to just have faith in. But at the same time, it still feels so off, like I just feel...

    Hey! I'm new here and figured I'd throw this out there and see if anyone can hopefully relate or share any insights.Ive heard a bit about high functioning mental illnesses, especially anxiety. I have always been very strong willed despite any circumstance, I have a high pain tolerance and I  believe it transfers over to mental health (for myself at least). I feel like a walking, talking,...
