General Anxiety Concerns - November 30th 2014, 06:48 PM

Hey there,

This started since I moved out around 4 months ago. I now have to fend for myself, but I'm used to it now, and I thought I'd settled in. I also live with my boyfriend who's immensely supportive and helps in a lot of situations.

I'm generally anxious a good proportion of the time- often without cause. My hands get sweaty, my pulse raises and I can feel/hear my heartbeat. My thoughts start racing, and I'm often very paranoid. If I'm in a new or social situation, things get worse (symptoms increase tenfold, and I often struggle). Even sitting here now, in a darkened room, I'm all tensed up and I don't know why. I take time to relax after university and work, and space my work out. I'm sometimes stressed, sometimes with cause and sometimes without. I'm mainly just confused as to why I feel this way. I don't want to see a counselor- it's not an option. I'm also slightly concerned this may have a physical cause. I know it's perfectly normal to feel nervous or panicked in some situations, but this seems a little bit excessive. I'm perfectly happy and coping well, aside from the nerves!

Any help or insight would be appreciated!

Take as long as you need.

Maybe there's something more going on. Have you tried talking to someone?

Hi There,

Do you have a counselor or therapist you could talk to. Some people can have really great coping skills but still have anxiety.
Maybe it would help you to take a low dose of an antidepressant/anxiety medication or the therapist could help you discuss recent events so you can find the root cause of your anxiety hopefully and learn how to cope with it directly.
I hope this is helpful to you and you can PM me if you would like.

"i don't care your intentions. I just want you to know my self-hatred never took me where I wanted to go. At the end of the day...I can pick at the pain but I can't cut it away."
