I've ridden the anxiety train for far too long.
« on: April 22, 2014, 01:10:36 AM »
Hi everyone,

I'm really excited to find this message board. I've always had issues with anxiety, but lately they've been almost impossible to deal with. I have problems with anxiety and panic attacks, as well as a diagnosis of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, and I have a strong suspicion I may be a hypochondriac as well -- Like many of you, I have diagnosed myself with every disease possible, and there's just no convincing me that I'm actually (gasp!) healthy!

However, I'm sick of the way I've been living. I feel like I've been on edge for the past year. Every little problem I have can be hearkened back to a yet-to-be-diagnosed life-threatening disease, and if I don't have a worry to occupy my mind, you can sure as hell bet that I'll find something destructive to fill my brain with.

Does anyone else feel that you've just become so accustomed to living in a heightened state of anxiety that something is "wrong" if you don't have anything to worry over?

I'm definitely tired of the way I've been living. I hope to, at the very least, meet some nice people with whom I can discuss anxiety problems, and to hopefully find some constructive and healthy ways to deal with these issues.

All the best,

Jessica

Hi, Jessica.

Just wanted to say you aren't alone in the "anxiety because you feel ok" camp.  I have felt that way before, too.  Maybe just feeling like waiting for the other shoe to drop.  It's exhausting!  Usually I just mentally chide myself with "So you're anxious because you're not anxious?  REALLY?" and it does usually make me chuckle a little.

Welcome from another newbie.
