Hello everybody!
I'm a 21 year old female and i have anxiety every day. It's basically my irrational fears that overcome and overpower me. I feel very tired and I need help, to know I can get better.

Thank you

Hi HelpImARock,  :action-smiley-065:

Welcome to AnxietyZone forums, here you will find plenty of people who will understand you and have problems that you have or similar. To get started create a post in one of the categories, if you need any help just PM one of the helpful staff and they will help you, there are chat rooms that you can join but you must be 18 or over and to be able to have access to them you must create 3 meaningful posts first.

Wow, thank you for the information. I crossed every single square in the Panic disorder self test.

I'm going to start therapy today, with a doctor who specializes in Anxiety. I have not been diagnosed by a doctor, but I've read so much about this and every time it makes more sense. I get scared all the time, specially when eating or drinking anything. I always imagine that someone has drugged my food and after I eat I always feel like something terrible is about to happen. The feeling lingers and then I feel that I will loose all contro of my body and that my legs will give in, and I will slip away in to a place where I can't communicate, and there I will be crazy.
I'm completely aware that my fears are irrational, but I've basically cut my eating and drinking during the day in less than half, and I just cannot bring myself to eat or drink anything that I don't know where it came from  .ç

Thank you so mucho for your reply, I'm happy to know I came to a good place
