Hello everyone


Hi, I've been a reader of this forum for a few years but only came here when my anxiety got so bad. I've had good days and bad days but today I woke up with my chest hurting, I felt so hopeless so maybe it's time to get proactive. I've never been diagnosed because I've never been to a doctor but there were days when I was so thirsty but too scared to walk into a market because I didn't know where the water bottles were placed, I didn't know how to communicate with the cashier. Then ended up buying water from a vending machine when I got to school. Even though my social anxiety got so much better comparing to 3 years ago, I believe I also developed generalized anxiety disorder which makes my day to day life feel like hell. I'm so tired of constant worrying, even about the smallest things. I don't know why I don't get professional help, maybe I don't know how to talk about my experience, maybe I don't believe it can actually work or maybe I'm just lazy. But I'm here to get some support while supporting others, interacting with people who had similar experiences, who can understand. So yes, here I am.

Hayooo, I have GAD as well and it's combination with SA is cruel, I just took a cab right now and he wanted me to pay more than the price I pay usually I didn't do it which means I won but damn I will think abt it the whole day. And concerning GAD my therapist advice is make ur day full of activities (it works but with my depression it's hard) and face your fears, meaning next time ur mind won't let you go by water or talk to the cachier do it anyways and force yourself to do it

You're not lazy, you're just afraid. I have seen so many people who are afraid of meds, afraid of getting help, afraid of being labeled crazy or broken thru diagnosis, afraid of seeking advice.

You're not lazy.

Hey beargi, welcome to SAS.

Even if our scars donít match thereís no wrong you canít make better if you can figure out a way to change your mind.

And sure thereís things I regret not doing or doing. Those thoughts climb my spine like spiders, and then Iím really the stranger in my own bed,

and that ball of nervous gets pushed into every crack. Thatís whatís holding the bricks together.

Welcome to the site. Lots of good people with good info. Just to get help. See a therapist or a DR. They can help a lot. They helped me quite a bit. Just make the first step and make an appointment. It will be scary talking about your issues but it will make it so much better
