Hi everyone.. I am a 24 year old female who has feelings of anxiety quite periodically. I am not diagnosed by a professional but I feel the anxiety is definitely there.
I have always been a worrier, however it has gotten way worse since this summer. Almost overnight.
I just lost interest in the things I used to love
I feel scared all the time of dying
I feel detached
I feel stressed out
I feel irritable and not happy go lucky as I used to be
I no longer love my job or feel motivated in school
Just getting ready for the day tires me out.
I want my life back :/
Back in August I went to the hospital because I was feeling some symptoms like I was about to pass out, nausea, tingly and weak legs... the doctors said everything was ok and that it was just a UTI and sent me on my way. The doctor seemed annoyed by my presence and only talked to me for a total of about 5 mins... they just wanted me out of there. Understandably so, since it wasn't a real emergency. Now I have a hospital bill to add to my stress. I think I was silly to even go but now I understand that those symptoms I was having are probably related to stress.
I work part time and am a college student, I have no health benefits at my job. So Idk what to do... I'm hoping that talking to like minded people might help me cope so here I am. Nice to be here and thanks to anyone who reads this. I think I just need to get stuff off my chest right now.
