Default Re: What Causes Your Anxiety?

Basically any interaction that I could consider negative or "risky" (risky as in not really being able to know how that person or others surrounding that person would react).

I really hate arguing with strangers, too. I nearly broke down crying today because of a small argument I had with a driver in a parking lot......

Basically meeting new people or new things, which could be new classes, or generally the first time and if its from school like a new semester it'll take me weeks to get over it, even though I tell myself I'm fine.

- being put "under the spotlight" without expecting it
- having any family members walking too close to me when I'm on my laptop
- being asked/told to sing in front of people
- having physical contact with anyone I don't like (that is the entire world's population minus three)

It can be absolutely anything.
Social interaction can cause it, going to meet my friends makes me anxious for no reason, they are the people Ibtrust but they just make me anvpxious for some reason.

Also college can do it, I have a small class, about 17 people, but that's too Manny for me to deal with in a confined space. Last week I had an anxiety attack after people started crowding around me. I had to leave the room.

But most of the time it is just free floating, nothing causes it or connects to it. It just sits there and floats around bin side my head. Its doing it right now. I have no reason to be, but I am. I feel anxious about 95% of the time.

My names Joe, but you can call me "Lord and master of all space and time"
I'm Bisexual, deal with it

I usually get anxiety from trying to make myself be something I'm not. I do this way too often to try to be accepted. I realize I am much more comfortable being myself than I am trying to act like someone else.

Anyways, I'm rambling. But that is my reason for anxiety.

my anxiety? school. that's probably my biggest trigger but also thinking of my future. As weird as it may sound it can cause me to have a full blown panic attack, but what kind of life does a person live if they are afraid of the future?

I have pretty bad social anxiety, so I seem to get it most whenever I'm around a lot of people I don't know or don't know that well.

Wow ImCoolBeans it's so wonderful to know that an admin (as well as the rest of you guys) has anxiety like me, I'm not happy that you suffer from anxiety, it just makes me feel so much less alone!

Well mine is free-floating most of the time.
But there are some triggers like:
-social situations
-any of my many phobias (way too many to list)

I can also get panic attacks, but I haven't had a full-fledged panic attack in years cause I just take a Xanax (the 2mg. bars) if I feel one coming on

Personally benzodiazepines saved my life (the Valium category of drugs, like: Valium, Xanax, Ativan, Klonopin, or any generic chemical name ending in -pam or -lam.
I take a Klonopin twice a day, and Xanax if I feel "breakthrough "anxiety

A lot of people get relief from the newer anti-depressants that are approved for anxiety too.
(like: Prozac, Zoloft, Paxil, Celexa, Lexapro, Effexor, Cybalta, etc.)
These don't work for me, only benzos do the trick, doctors don't like writing prescriptions for them, because they can be addictive or abused, but they don't make me feel high, just normal.
First, when I was thirteen, I went to a clinic that has a very giood reputation.
A resident psychiatrist gave me Ativan then he switched me to Klonopin and they work as soon as you take the first pill and it started helping a lot and a social worker helped me with therapy, but then over 6 month later, the head children's psychiatrist saw me and insisted I was an addict, he said I tricked the resident into giving me pills and tricked the social worker into believing I had anxiety and he was gonna take me off the benzos. I found this insulting, cause if I wanted to get high I could just buy pot like some of my classmates.

So I just went to a private psychiatrist that I still see every 4 yearsvlater,week and he gives me all the meds I need and therapy.

So that's my anxiety in a (long) nutshell

being in a room/place with a few people makes me anxious because it makes it most likely for them to notice me, but being with tons of people also makes me anxious and breathless. i'm okay in a classroom (where there's about 20-30 people) unless the attention is on me, that gives me anxiety.

also meeting people.. that fear of being judged gets to me too often.

i just prefer being alone or being around people i feel comfortable with.
