Anxiety Peer Support

Normal things are difficult for me to handle. I have to work hard for what other people dont even have to think about. Everyday a new challenge.

Anyone ever get so much anxiety that they get nauseated and can’t eat? How do you cope? Last time this happened I didn’t eat for 4 days.

I’m in this horrible state where my stomach feels queasy, my lungs aren’t working correctly, and my mind is screaming at me and everything seems wrong or like something bad is going to happen but nothing’s wrong and I just feel so sick and and I can’t sit still and everything sucks.

I was honest with my boss who and told her about some of the struggles I’ve been dealing with and how hard it has been for me mentally to make it to the office everyday and asked if I could work from home (we have the remote option) while I sort out my mental health. I immediately felt embarrassed and ashamed to ask for this even though I know it is what I need. Does anyone experience that wave of defeat/shame/guilt when you ask for what you need to take care of yourself?

Does it happen to you or I'm the only one creating "what if scenarios" that are only correct in my imagination and become afraid of letting them go?

I overcame my fear of public speaking today and spoke in front of my class about what changed me. It was only for 5 minutes but it is a start.

I can’t stop thinking about dying and what happens I know I’ve said this before but it stops me from doing so much and makes me feel sick and I just wanna lay there instead of doing anything & it’s such a terrible feeling.

I’m not sure if I should share this or not but honestly I’m desperate. I’ll try and keep it short but I’ve been off school for 9 months because of CRIPPLING anxiety and depression, I can’t really explain how I feel very well (I’ve never been good at that) so counselling is kinda difficult. I also struggle to get out the house at all so sometimes I don’t even make it to the appointments. I just wanted to see if anyone could suggest anything or if someone has experienced the same sort of thing.

I have been seeing a therapist for several months, and I never got a bill. This week it happened, $975 dollars. How can anyone afford that consistently? I dont know how I am going to pay this. I am already living paycheck to paycheck..

I am in a terrible space. Whenever I get here I lose my desire to be here. I get so overwhelmed I feel like leaving is the only way out. The feelings always come back. I need help. I am terrified. I feel like I don’t have anyone and no one would understand. I hate myself and how I am.

I can't pin point what I'm anxious about. Im anxious about going to work. I don't know if its the driving the train the cycling the length of the commute how early I get up or the job itself. So I don't know how to tackle it. I just feel dread and stress and don't want to go. Any advice?

who else hyperventilates throughout the day when feeling anxious? like taking shallow breaths from your chest. & do y’all ever feel like your throat is tense too? or like a weird feeling in your chest? i keep thinking i’m gonna develop asthma from hyperventilating

Do I have anxiety? It has been a troubling question for years. If I think about my position physically or actions, if I am not doing SOMETHING a feeling seizes me like an uncomfortable chill that causes me to move or jerk in an uncontrollable impulse. If I can't understand a new math concept or I can't immediately play my new music off the sheet, I become afraid, I feel as if I need to cry and I cannot focus or do well any longer. What is all this among other things. Is it normal?

I am glad to be running again. :) It’s a time when I feel strong, I can move on from my pain of the past, and I just feel free.

After having the worst panic attack of my life and ending up in the ER this past Saturday because I thought I was having was a heart attack I find myself constantly worried that it will happen again. Nightime is the worst because there are less distractions.

I recently watched a movie with my friend which I knew would be risky since I always get upset at the end of movies. I kinda regret it.
