College student making some discoveries about possible GAD
« on: June 15, 2014, 09:59:04 PM »
I'm not sure how this works or who will look at this, but I thought I'd give it a shot.

Next year will be my third year at school and throughout the last couple of years Ive realized my amount of worry isn't normal. I typically worry about school and that's where I worry the most, but then I realized I worry about EVERYTHING. I will worry about if my friends like me, if my teacher thinks I'm annoying and I will imagine the worst possible scenarios like that I'm going to get cancer one day or just these irrational "what if" thoughts. I understand that they are irrational and not needed, but I will still worry.

The reason I've looked into this more is because it's also causing physical effects. Sometimes I will wake up with my heart racing and never feel like I am completely rested. I often times have acid reflux or some sort of gastrointenstinal problem where my abdomen area will hurt especially when I'm eating and stressed. I also get headaches all the time and am just constantly on edge and worried. I also have managed to get bronchitis about 4 times in one year. The doctor said there's nothing I can do about the bronchitis, but I personally think it relates to my stress and anxiety but i didn't really mention that. I'm not really sure where to go with this and if anyone else has any similar experiences.

If you've read this, I really appreciate it and it just helps to share my thoughts with others.
