Question Is this weird? - September 16th 2011, 02:48 PM

Well I have this little addiction thing that I have to do or I will snap and start freaking out in crowded areas but it seems to annoy people..its fiddling with shit with my hands and tapping my foot fast enough that my leg shakes ...what should I do? old ppl keep yelling at me


My dad said girl's love guy's with scars...wheres the girl thats loving me?
Fighting is useless because they said I am just doomed to fail
"I ripped the wings off of an angel
and sowed them on my back
I watched them turn a darkening
bleeding the colour black
I soar above the clouds on these dark angel wings
keeping an eye on tortured souls
that live this life of pain"

That sounds like anxiety. What makes you do it? Maybe try different ways to exercise or release some energy. Sometimes you need to keep moving if you aren't very active, or it could be you are nervous or excited - all are parts of anxiety.

Try fiddling with your phone, or a book. Stress balls are wonderful as they're not noisy and keep your hands busy.

I do, like I was on a crowded bus and i was fiddling with my transfer and an old man started freaking on me and i got nervous and everytime i would fiddle he would say "can you stop fiddling with that! thank you."
I am also active I just run and walk everywhere except for the very few bus rides.

There are people who are fidgety, and people who aren't. My best friend is pretty fidgety, and I don't have a problem with it. It's not that unusual, and I'd say people who are yelling at you for it are being slightly unreasonable.

Perhaps it was noisy? As an example, stress balls do not make sound when you squeeze them or fiddle with them, so maybe try that?

Also, I agree with the above poster. Try to ignore people who yell at you like that. That's just rude. If I get annoyed by something out in public I move, leave, or ask nicely "Can you find something else to play with?" Or whatever. If they keep doing it, oh well. It can't hurt to ask. I don't pursue any further.

I don't think it's weird because i do it all the time. i don't know.. when im not entertained or have been staying still for too long i get fidgity and irrated. Plus, if i dont fidgity i get ... i wouldnt say irrated but more.... antsy? What i suggest doing is try doing quieter more unnoticable things...
-tap fingers on legs in rhythm
-when alone or out of site have quick dance session (im not insane i swear it helps)
-the earlier responce of the stress ball is good.
-singing music in head

however, i wont jump to the conclusion of anxiety unless i know that you are under alot of stress.. are you?
I think this is more you may have a more "active" mind and that causes you to NEED to move like me lemme know if there is a piece of info that i missed and may have caused me to make a wrong assessment

Your only mad 'cause I'm stronger now and you can't push me around

My Daddy once told me I was to weak to accomplish my dream, so I did it . . .
