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.

    Intense Fear

    0
    Anyone else have a fear of choking? It's become so intense that I can not eat unless I have a few drinks in me to feel relaxed. Been to doctors and they can't seem to find anything medically wrong with me and I know there isn't because when I drink I can eat and the morning after I can as well because I am still relaxed. But it means I rarely easy during the day and it makes me feel really...

    Neverending cycle

    I'm feeling as though I'm having anxiety and depression, brought on by circumstances I can't change at the moment.  I am a stay-at-home Mom working on my Master's, neither of which I can stop doing.  The thought of sending my daughter to daycare and going back to work scares me, because she was a preemie, and I don't want to expose her too soon, though some days, I just don't feel I was made to...
  • The worst part about this anxiety, panic and depression is that it starts off slow and quiet, like a gentle, messed up reminder it's back. The horrible thing is that i know exactly where I go from here and there is nothing I can do to stop it. No matter what I try, or do, it always leads me to the same place. I can not out run it, nor bypass it despite my efforts. The anxiety leads to panic...

    I suffer from severe anxiety, and in the last two days I got flea bites which cause me an allergic reaction. The day after that I was feeling sick and vomiting all day, and now I have all kinds of body pain. I went to the doctor and they send me to an specialist but there is a good chance that it is just stress and anxiety.  Has anyone experienced something like this? Vomiting all day and body...

    ANXIETY!

    This is my first post. I have been struggling with anxiety fairly recently, maybe since July, but it has gotten worse in the last several weeks. I have at least 1 sleepless night each week and a few days each week where I am so anxious I seem to vibrate. Also, I have horrible thoughts and feel as if a disaster is eminent.  I know my child and dog sense it and respond to my energy. I feel as if I...

  • My father had a stroke last month. It was just 5 days before my wedding. It was so severe it almost killed him and the only reason he is even here is because his co-workers recognized the signs. My father has always been a superhero to me. He was always larger than life. A natural athlete who regularly exercised well into his fifties. A police officer for almost 30 years. Charismatic in a way...
  • So last January I moved away from home in order to end the long distance relationship that I was maintaining with (now) my fiancé. It's been almost a year now and honestly I feel as though things aren't going well. Given, there have been a lot of personal things that have impacted my current state of depression such as my grandmother's recent passing and missing my family dearly, but I just feel...

I just don’t seem to care about anything anymore, I am detached from those around me and have nowhere to turn. I feel very down and not...
