This a place for anyone with an Anxiety disorder to come and discuss it. Even if you don't have one feel free to talk about it.
Here's some info to inform you all =]
It is broken up into several different Anxiety Disorders, the one I suffer is this one
I started to develop my Anxiety Disorder August last year which means I have had it for just over a year. I have known since then that I over-react to things and develop extreme paranoia over really unnecessary things. I didn't realise it was so bad until it escalated 2 weeks ago. I was at a friends house with a group of people I haven't seen since i left school and I had a very severe Panic Attack. It was literally the worst thing i have ever experienced in my life. For the next 24 hours i was crying, shaking, vomiting and worrying. I realised my mental health was definitely not right. Like me, many people also suffer from depression as it goes hand in hand with Anxiety Disorders.
I most likely inherited the problem from my mother who suffered from it for years. Life issues last August most likely "activated" it.
With the disorders, people have other symptoms, one big one for me was the Insomnia. I have always had bad sleeping patterns but for the last year it's been very bad. Now i struggle to sleep if i am on my own. I usually cannot sleep until i am collapsing with tiredness.
My condition has been so bad lately i cry over everything, i get so paranoid i vomit, i get really disoriented and distressed i start shaking and sweating. I haven't told many people IRL because I really don't want to be judged as a mental case when i'm definitely not.
So there you go, anyone with an Anxiety Disorder i call you to come forward and discuss it and anyone who knows someone with one feel free to discuss too.
