Anxiety - February 14th 2009, 02:39 AM

Both my family and I think I have anxiety. If I am in a crowded room/place I will start to either swear or get really jittery or both. I will have to be moving ad my breathing will shorten and I have to try to calm myself down. I don't think I have had a full anxiety attack, but I have come close to hyperventilating. Some times it will happen in class, (and in the past two weeks its happened probably six out of ten days), and I will have to be shaking my leg or moving in my seat and m mind will wander off easily and I can't concentrate on what my teacher's are saying.

Do you guys think I might have anxiety or is it a normal teenage phase? Does anyone else have anxiety? If so, what do you do to deal with it? Is anyone on meds, and if so, what?

I think it's possible. My counselor says she thinks I have social anxiety disorder, and I have some of those same symptoms as you. There are several things it could be though. You can check it out with a doctor- they can give you a diagnosis and sometimes prescribe medicine if they think you need it.

You're everything I know that makes me believe
I'm not alone
You're in everyone I see
So tell me
Do you see me?

I think you should make a seperate thread so that people can see this better and not think its mine. Just go to the top of the Mental Health page and click on New Thread.

I hope things work out for you and your family though.

I'm pretty sure I have anxiety. Last semester I was in the library studying the day of a test.. I just started breathing really hard and crying. Felt like I couldn't handle it. I've done it a couple times this semester.. luckily I was at home those times. I hate it. I Don't know what to do.
