      This was great, thanks, been searching for "panic disorder episodic paroxysmal anxiety" for a while now, and I think this has helped. Have you heard people talk about - Supreme Panic Magic - (do a google search ) ? Ive heard some great things about it and my cousin got excellent results with it.

    I don't have social anxiety but I has a tube in my nose for a long time. School was the worst. I avoided looking at people and trying to hide my face with my hair so they wont recognize me or stare at me. I never wore a ponytail. I often asked myself 'Why do I have a best friend ? Doesn't she think I'm a weirdo? What is she thinking of me? Do I even deserve such a loyal and reliable friend?' I was always an introvert but that gave it the rest.

    Please someone tell me if I have anxiety disorder. (sorry for my horrible english)
    This things started 2-3 years ago and I cant control them. I have little panics that my heart is pumping so fast and I feel full with andrenaline and then I cant focus what is happening around me. I can hear the people around me talk but its like Im focused just at my heart beating so fast. This things are happening to me at times that I dont even have something to worry about.
    Today I was sitting in class at my favourite subject and that happened to me and I couldnt focus I was feeling kind of scared and when I went out of class I felt so much anxiety without a reason and when somebody will come to talk to me see if I was okay my anxiety will grow bigger and I couldnt speak because I would cry.

    Getting through something as simple as answering a question at school can be difficult for me because of my social anxiety. One time my teacher was telling the class that we had to present a project for the class and I was hoping that I wasn't first, and I was first, so I told my teacher that I didn't want to go and I was laughing nervously and I was crying at the same time and the teacher let my best friend help me present it, but still, I was nervous.

    I don't actually know if I have anxiety or depression. I often get panicky at very small things or nothing, I often have 'jumps' in my heartbeat and breathing- I feel scared and if something bad is going to happen even though nothing at all has happened. When somebody doesn't reply within a minute or two I jump to 'they're talking to somebody else better than you' 'you're boring' or 'they're majorly injured or dead' (very big jump I know), get worried over the smallest things and I think I've had a panic attack although I not quite sure (I was in PE on the top of a hill and I just felt so overwhelmed, like everybody was staring at me, I couldn't do what I was asked to do as I could only think of what bad would happen. I actually thought I was going to die and started crying, I just kind of wanted to be in a room by myself), I don't know if I have anxiety and I don't know where I would go to get tested or if my parents would allow me to be tested or if it costs money (I live in a fairly small town so don't relay know where to go), I guess I'm scared that if I am diagnosed I will be treated differently. As for depression, again I don't know if it is or I'm just really really sad but it never goes, if that makes sense. It kind of lingers like an impending storm that gradually gets closer. I've been like it for about two years now, it gets worse for sometimes only a day or two but sometimes weeks or months at a time where I feel sad but not normal sad, I feel like 'I'm so sad that I don't feel sad I feel nothing' and 'I'm so sad it physically hurts' (like a constant weight placed on my chest that drags me down further). I often loose motivation to do much and loose interest in things I used to enjoy, sometimes it's so bad that I can't even get myself to move no matter how much I want to I just can't find the reason to. Just yesterday I had to fake physical illness so I could get off school, I don't know why but I woke up and I just couldn't, I couldn't bare to face it again and deal with the possible calling outs for an answer and I was just so mentally and physically exhausted. I don't know if I have anxiety or depression but I think my dad had them when he was a bit younger, i don't know how that would effect it (maybe a higher chance due to genetics? Like some diseases) but I don't know where or how much it would cost to get tested, as I mentioned I live in a fairly small town. My friend did get tested for anxiety so I guess I could ask her where she got tested. I kind of don't want to tell my parents, they might pass it off as some excuse to not do stuff or not want me to be tested. I haven't really been through much in my life so nothing that would traumatise me or scar me (I guess maybe one or two events?), I know it's not 'normal' to feel like this so I just kind of want help or at least if I have anything for it to be recognised and not seen as an excuse or overreaction

  • Llama Queen
    Llama Queen Day ago

    When I get nervous, I usually either play with my hair tie, clench my fist(s) and stab my hand with my thumb, move my feet around, or something of that sort. I do this so I don't think about what I'm nervous about. It keeps me focused.

  • McFlytrap Studios

    When I was diagnosed with social anxiety and panic attacks I was very scared of what my friends were going to think but, what really helps me! Is my music! Music has always been such an important thing in my life it just helps me stay calm! Writing and drawing do the same thing because I get to pour my emotions out on to a piece of paper. That’s what helps me and I hope it helps some others roo

  • LPS Frosty Face

    It's so hard when I see little kids lying about having an anxiety disorder just to act cool. I have panick anxiety disorder and generalized anxiety disorder. It's so hard to live my normal life with out worrying about something so scary each day. No matter what I do I feel like anxiety has followed me. Nobody quite understands me, or doesn't think it's serious. It is serious. Saying you have it to act cool is not something you should be doing. Try living with my anxiety for a day! I'm so sickened by the people faking about an anxiety disorder. It's very immature and ridiculous. Just today I thought I was going to die because I cut myself on a slightly rusty pair of scissors. Every nights when I use and it's dark, I can't see out the window and I think someone is going to be there and shoot me. Last weekend I was in a local parade and while I was walk I randomly felt panick. Talking about things that don't even matter make me feel panick. These are just some examples from a pass few days, do you really want to have a mental disorder to act cool? It's not cool. It's terrible.

    Unpopular opinon time!

    If mental disease is when the brain doesn't function like the "normal" brain, but a standard for the term "normal" dosen't exist wouldn't that mean mental disease is just when a person's personality is labeled "messed up" If you check with a nureologist they would say that no two brains are the same. So if you label someone a "nut job" just because they don't like talking wouldn't that mean you are shaming people for individualism. And since society strives to make these people "normal" they dope them up with drugs. I honestly have no idea what I'm talkign about and I think I might've triggered a million different people so please spare me in the replies.

    I'm a very extroverted person with generalised anxiety. It's tough. One of the things that helps me, honestly, is keeping a nihilistic world view. Nothing really matters, so I have to pursue what'll make me happiest in the long run. It doesn't negate the anxiety, but it helps alleviate.

    Hello, these are a few coping mechanisms I've found over the years of dealing with anxiety.
    Exercise (running up and down stairs or talking a stroll outside works best for me)
    Talking to someone ( even though you may feel like it's the worst thing to do just let them know you aren't feeling the best)
    Watching YouTube videos (watch something you aren't familiar with or don't watch often)
    Breathing exercises (deep breath in through your nose and out through your mouth is what helps me but there is so many more you can try)
    Pro-biotics (they really take away most of my anxiety but it's still there in uncomfortable situations for me)

Also at school, whenever I have to present something in front of class, I get stage fright. I get really nervous because people at looking at me with their judgemental eyes. They say that I'm just a shy pussy, but in reality I'm fighting a disorder everyday. I just hope that everyone can understand the difference between shyness and anxiety.

    Thanks for making it clear to people who don't suffer from this. I've been having this for almost 2 years. (I hate being told: "I hope it doesn't happen to you again." So as to comfort me) And what works for me while I have an attack is breathing in and out slowly, being aware of what's happening and focusing more on what I'm doing.
