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'm so frustrated

    1
    because I'm living with GAD and have Bipolar disorder. If my anxiety gets out of control it triggers the other. I am from Australia and currently living in Norway. And I'm so annoyed and frustrated with the health system here. I've been trying to see a psygologist for the last 6 months (yes that's right, 6months) but it's not happening. There's always a big queue.. the whole effort and stress...

    Anxiety?

    3
    Hey everyone, I didn't know where to share my story because I don't even know if I have anxiety. The thing is that I've always had trouble communicating or talking to people, no matter the context (social, school, etc). Lately, this has gone worse because now I'm not even able to raise my hand and talk in front of my classroom when the teacher asks for an answer. I know it doesn't sound like a...

    I don't really know if this has anything to do with my anxiety, but I get really jealous whenever I start talking to someone, and I'm scared they'll leave me for someone else. I know it's bc of my last serious relationship. It left me insecure and unable to trust anyone. Whenever I fight with my crush, I have a panic attack bc my last real boyfriend left me after every argument. Or he'd make me...

    Coping the wrong way

    0
    My anxiety has been so high. To the point that I'm having a drink or two a day. Sometimes more. But when the alcohol wears off, I get so depressed. Then I feel like I'm losing my mind. I'm seeing my counselor every other week and taking natural supplements. I literally feel like just curling in a ball and recluse myself from the world. It's getting harder and harder to continue. I was exercising...

    Structure

    0
    Hello,Symptoms of my anxiety are flucuating a lot, especially since I am expecting a baby. I am finding structure and to-do lists to help me deal with the anxiety I feel. It is when I'm not moving around and getting things done that I get in my own mind and become exhausted, but if I can get going then I am able to just GO, GO, GO! How do you guys deal with anxiety???Thank you!

    Is it me?

    I've managed to offend someone I was following on Instagram...I commented on a photo they posted.  This person insinuated that I am a bigot because of that comment.  A complete stranger thinks the worst of me...and it upsets me.  I know that me giving it one second of thought or concern is ridiculous but here I lay wide awake letting this person make me feel bad and doubt myself. i feel like...

    Extreme Bursts of Energy

    2
    Anybody else experience extreme bursts of energy throughout the day? I experience 2-3 periods of excess amounts of energy each day. During these episodes I am extremely fidgety and shaky and am unable to focus on anything. I pace around my apt, go for long walks, or go for a run to try and help get rid of some of this energy. I don’t know whether this is anxiety related or not.

    Can't sleep

    I see I am not the only one. i go through this almost every night. I sleep for a couple hours and then wake up and toss and turn. My mind churns this loop of negative thoughts and I have a feeling of impending doom. I'm afraid to be alone.  I'm afraid to be homeless. In the past I spent money to feel better and now I have nothing to retire on. My drinking has worsened and I feel now that it is...

    College Homesickness

    3
    This is my first post here. I just moved into college and I thought it would be fun, but in reality I'm miserable. It's only my second day but I still constantly feel alone and want to cry. I literally just want to go home but I know that's not what's best for me. It seems like nobody else is having issues getting adjusted, just me. Anyone else going through something similar? I feel really...

    I have G.A.D. -- this week has been the worst. It was my first week of college. It was also the first week since my ex(whom I have a traumatic past) contacted me again. I had my first panic attack in almost a year. I can't manage my physical symptoms.Most importantly my sleep is extremely affected, my ex triggered nightmares. Nightmares meant less sleep. Less sleep meant more anxiety. More...
