I've never confided this with anyone because I never really had a good way of explaining it, and it seemed silly. I never mentioned this to any of the two psychiatrists I'd seen the past three years.
Growing up school has always been one of the biggest sources of anxiety, and to this day it still is. I've struggled very badly with my first year in college and I'm seriously considering taking a semester off because of how my mental state has been recently, and especially at the end of the semester a few weeks ago.
Anyway, I've never been able to truly enjoy a vacation past maybe two weeks of it. I become VERY anxious about it's end, and I begin to dread it even if it's far away. I've been this way since I was a child and it's only gotten worse since my GAD spiked up 3 years ago. As days pass my anxiety grows and grows even though right now, the beginning of classes is still very far away, I'm losing sleep and losing my appetite over it already. I tend to hide calendars and avoid looking at dates because it triggers my anxiety.
Has anyone had this problem? Do you have any suggestions for coping?
