Hello friends,
I am 20 years old, living alone in a big city. I grew up a very happy kid, very healthy and active, but for the past 3 or 4 years I have had troubles concerning what I believe to be an anxiety disorder of some sort. Some of my symptoms include paranoia, often sensing someone is watching me, or in the room, when they clearly are not. I feel scared of so many things, which make no sense to me. I worry about my mental health all day, every day feeling as if I may blow a fuse and grow crazy. I have horrible thoughts often including cutting wrist, which makes no sense because I am for the most part a very optimistic person, with no intent in hurting myself, or anyone else for that matter. I should note, my mother has bad psychosis, and my older sister has severe depression, which I suppose could very easily link to me getting something genetically. I just want to live my life without worrying about everything, and not being paranoid or thinking about my mental health each and every day. I love my girlfriend very much, and have good friends around me, but I feel if I donít figure out whats going on with me then I eventually will lose everything. I have never been diagnosed or really seriously talked with anyone about this, but I just donít want to live the rest of my life like this. If anyone has any input at all I would really appreciate it! Thanks for reading!

First of all, you need a good psychiatrist or mental health practitioner that can lead the way for you.  You may need a antidepressant and ant-anxiety meds for support.  But, I really think it's essential you have some counselig.  Anxiety is rough to deal with on your own and you've been suffering long enough.

Take heart, you are not alone.  Try acceptance and mindfulness.  But again, the path to getting well is getting some therapy.  I really think you'll start to feel so much better.

All my best,  Julie

My advice to you is to go get onto some kind of anti-depressant.. There are a lot of people on here who will understand what you are going through.  Try talking to others on here as well as getting some sort  of counseling!

Best wishes
