Default What Causes Your Anxiety?

What makes you feel anxious usually?

My anxiety can either be free floating -- as in it may not have a direct cause, it just arises -- or otherwise it's usually caused by some sort of interaction. A lot of times I also over think things, and when I start doing that I usually set off my anxiety.

Always here to help. Don't hesitate to PM me.

Very VERY rarely, I get anxiety for no reason.
Otherwise it's social anxiety.
It's kind of complicated actualy...
My anxiety is mostly triggered in situations where I for example go to a store or downtown by myself, I can't stand that and I need to get out.

Sometimes I too managa to overthink myself into either sadness or anxiety.

shout at the world because the world doesn't love you

lower yourself because you know that you have to.

My anxiety is usually based on tough current or future situations or pretty much things go unexpected and I don't want them to go unexpected..

Or when I'm going to bed and my mind wanders to unexpected thoughts..

Usually it involves being around people, or knowing I have to go to see someone, especially if I don't know them well.

Happens
Randomly when at home
Sometimes while in college but hardly any
Walking home from college because I have to go through town which is always busy

I feel it less in college as I like making people laugh by doing and saying stupidly funny things. I make people laugh, I feel better. And also while listening to music I feel a lot better too

Usually it's random, or triggered by feeling upset in general. But if I have to do something that is stressful, ESPECIALLY if it involves other people, I get high amounts of anxiety, sometimes I'll even get panic attacks.

Or at night. I get a lot of anxiety and panic attacks at night.

My anxiety is usually just kind of general. Some days I'm more anxious than others. I also get pretty anxious in social situations. Not to mention creative anxiety, which I just found out was a thing..

I used to have severe anxiety about going places without my parents, like school field trips. But after a few years of medication and a very good therapist, I rarely get anxiety now. I will still get some anxiety if I have to go on a plane by myself, but only sometimes. But the one thing that still gives me anxiety is my dad. Long story...

Most any situation outside of the regular routine, especially if it involves people I don't know. Other times for no reason. Wednesday for no reason I had a horrible panic attack that was so bad I'm still a little shaky from it.

Sudden loud knocking, wasps, and being the center of attention in a room with more then 5 people.

Usually I can't really find a common trigger, but sometimes stress, some social situations, and generally anywhere I feel out of my depth set it off. Sometimes I just walk into a room or building and suddenly I get really, really scared and anxious and I have to get out straight away, without knowing why.

Mine is the exact same way, but I get it more often "out of the blue" than not.

I love everyone. PM me.

Mine comes from being around people... especially unfamiliar people.

Red face Re: What Causes Your Anxiety?

I literally feel some kind of anxiety all the time but not bad mostly. I'm always a little shaky, and constantly having to quickly calm myself down. The more I think about it (11 days since I posted here), the more I realize a lot of things have triggered a lot of my emotional problems.

Being face-to-face with people

Fear of getting things wrong when I'm speaking up, especially when to people I don't know

Being the center of attention

Staying still... honestly I can't and when I try to I can end up in a panic

Lectures in college. Had to sit through 2 today both in large groups of people which was hell

Too many people in the college computer room, some day last week we had around 10-20 people suddenly crowd into there and I got so bad I had to leave the room because of it

Seeing some of the worst people from school

Situations where it's just me and 1 other person talking in a room. This is down to me trusting someone when we were both alone and him telling EVERYONE the secrets I told him

Not wearing something colour co-ordinated. Honestly, I feel much better when I wear completely red and blue, and in college I feel much better wearing one of my bobble hats too

Sudden loud noises

Sometimes being outside on my own

Not constantly holding something in my hand. I earlier carried my water bottle around the room with me when we had to move around for this stupid lecture thing because only by holding something did I feel comfortable with the kind of situation I was in

Being asked questions about the future

I had a slight panic attack again caused just by Daily Mail on facebook. I unfollowed them and am going to try and not view the site again because of all the news about science, honestly. My brother doesn't understand how bad it affects me, I've always been scared by science...

Having things I wrote read out to the whole group

Not being around either 1 of 3 people when in college

Being near people I don't know

Being in rooms without clocks... Seriously, I panic from that too. I always need to know the time or I feel extremely uncomfortable and in both of the rooms this was in I was sat near a teacher so I couldn't exactly check my phone

And a lot of other strange things I will eventually update this thread with if I can think and remember

Lately, money is the main one. I even get anxious about ordering a pizza lol.

Mid-size crowds. I'm fine in smaller groups of like 5-15 people, and big groups like 50+, but in between I feel very uncomfortable. Especially if it's a family thing that isn't MY family. I go to my step sister's things a lot and I don't know her family, so it's weird being around a group of people who've known each other all their lives.

Shopping.. I'm a slow shopper, and I get anxious if the store is fairly empty and it's just a little shop. I feel like more attention will be on me and they'll think I shop weird or something lol.

But I over think literally everything, which leads to some degree of anxiousness.

In my case, it happens mainly because of school grades and parent pressure.
