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.

    Anxiety Eating

    I'm officially terrified to eat. Often times when I'm eating my food just gets stuck and I can't swallow. I hurry up and grab something liquid to push it down. It's so scary. I feel like each meal might be my last. I take super tiny bites and chew for a very long time and still struggle. Then today I swallowed and it felt stuck for a long time and burned.I need to get an endoscopy once my work...

    Increasing med dose and nervous as hell

    Can anyone relate?  I've been on 10mg of paxil for 17 years...seriously that long.  It probably hasn't worked for me for a while but I've managed with deep breathing, yoga, therapy, etc.  I am now 50 and entering menopause and hormonal changes have made me prone to lots of anxiety, depression, etc.  I finally caved in and agreed to increase my dose to 15 last night.  Now I'm nervous about...

    Decision I cannot make

    I need guidance before I crumble. My ex father in law passed away two days ago. He was 98, his wife heard the news and went to bed and has not got up. She is not expected to make it much longer, bad heart. She is 99. These people were more parental to me than my own. They live in Las Vegas, I live in Michigan. I was married for 29 years. I spoke with my ex mother in law last night (first time...

    Not Fun

    First day back at work after my weekend. I quit drinking and smoking in the last 2 weeks so learning to handle hard situations without that has been a challenge to say the least although rewarding in the end. Today went down the crapper as soon as I walked into my shift.  I basically had to say goodbye to someone for unsavory reasons.  I know boundaries are important and I know I've implimented...

    Prayer

    Hey all, I hope you're all doing well. I suffer from anxiety and depression. In December it got to the point where I had to go to the ER. I felt hopeless. It happened again early this month. I'm a sophomore in college and have a lot on my plate with relationships, church, classes, ect. I could use some prayer. If you need prayer, I'm here as well. Don't hesitate to reach out!

    Social Anxiety

    Hi all,I'm new to this forum. I've suffered from social anxiety for awhile now and would say it's gotten significantly worse within the last 2 years. I've had multiple situations of people laughing at me in public. I would consider myself a decent looking gal, no odd features/poor posture, dress normal, etc. Within the last few years I have noticed people literally pointing and laughing at me....

I'm on...

    Self Esteem

    I've had self esteem issues for a very long time. but lately they've just been getting worse. it's mostly about my ears. I think I have huge ears and I try to cover them with my hair all the time. it's very thin and often my ears poke out making me look terrible. I also can't stand my weight. people tell me I'm not overweight, but I think I am. I really need to lose weight and I'm self conscious...
