I wanted to reach out to the community because Im seeking some support. Sometimes I feel alone when my “normal” family doesn’t understand what I am going through on a daily bases. I share things with my mom, and wife, but at times, like recently, I can’t bother them with my struggles. I am probably seeking reassurance, but when I can’t talk about things with them I go inward and make things worse. Sometimes it’s hard and I have to pound through and do things with my kids and wife while inside I really just want to get the activity over with so I can get home and lay down and research ways to get rid of anxiety and symptoms. It’s not all the time, and I do things with my family that are fun and I try to live in the moment, but certain times when my anxiety is high and causing physical symptoms, it’s hard to enjoy life. I start to think and get scared of things that may happen to me in the future (mostly health related) and I worry that I will feel like this forever.

For over 2 months now I’ve felt like I’m running on autopilot. It’s scary because it almost feels like reality is in a dream-state at all times. I worry that I’m going crazy. A friend told me it may be something called...
I have posted a few times regarding problems with my relationship. I sought advice and tried to take it. We went to a counseling session that was painful but honest and from there tried to utilize the tools given. For about a month things have been mostly good. Ive tried on my end to let a lot more go and he's tried on his end to respect my feelings on when he inadvertently hurts me.However, the...
