  1. I still don’t know if I have anxiety and I’ve been questioning it for a while now because after most of my social encounters my thoughts linger on them analyzing my every move and wondering what others think about me or I am paranoid and excessively worry about little things that have an extremely low chance of occurring and not only that I have trust issues and never think I can trust others with the fear of them using information against me or them thinking something different of me than they previously did so I don’t really know but there are some days that I can walk around my high school and give a one on one tour to someone without difficulty then on other days I can’t even bring myself to think about talking to a stranger of any sort but I can never present in a class without a constant worry

    Sorry for my long rant I’m just thinking through text I suppose but if anyone could clarify what this really is then let me know because I would never be able to find the confidence to tell my parents about it because of the reasons listed above

  2. Sometimes I feel like i'm losing my mind and i know my thoughts are irrational and i want to stop but I don't know how to control it. I've asked my parents plenty of times to get me professional help because I also suffer from depression, I'm not sure if it's because of my anxiety but then it always seems to never get done I was schedule for therapy every Wednesday but it just never happened.Idk why. I feel like me seeing someone for my GAD would have helped a lot. it's just getting worse at this point. I'm almost always getting told from my family that I'm over reacting and it makes me want to jump out my bedroom window because I try so hard to not over think.

  3. I’m only ten and this is not very healthy for me, and sometimes I cry in class, and it is hard for me to make it threw the day without calling my mom, she is the only one who can calm me

  4. I have anxiety and it's really hard to cover it i mean I'm really afraid if people will find out abt my problem and i always try to act normal when I'm dying inside

  5. I'm actually too scared to ask my parents to take me for a test for this, I'm more scared of my parents rolling their eyes and telling me to stop it than I am actually being diagnosed with it

  6. Can some one help me?

    I sometimes feel like I’m in a dream and I’m disconnected from the world. I was outside and I thought I saw the fluff from my dead bunny that was buried a few years back, then blinked and it was gone, but after that I felt like I couldn’t breath + I was light headed. I also THINK I have anxiety (it runs in the family & I have all of the signs in this video, but I don’t want to go self diagnosing myself or anything). I’m just not sure what’s wrong with me, I cancel plans last minute with friends because I feel overwhelmed, I never let anyone in so when I have relationships they feel one sided because I’m always helping my friends with they’re problems but they aren’t helping me with mine.

    Sorry if that was confusing but I’m not sure what’s wrong with me and I hope someone can help, if you can, thank you.

  7. This sounds pretty stupid but i am so anxious of how successful i will be in the future. Last night i had a panic attack about it and it was horrible! I'm so scared that i might not be happy, and i'm also very scared that things will never get better…please tell me that i'm not the only one which gets so anxious about this.

  8. I’m not sure if I have anxiety with the fact that I’m a bit worried to tell somebody. And that it’s “ just in my head” like my mum and dad say about a lot of things I do ( like twitching wheezing etc)

  9. Hi, i’m AJ, i got diagnosed when i was 5! i’m 12 now, in the seventh grade, i’m going through a hard time right now. this video was very helpful for my friends

  10. It just gets in the way of my thought process and makes me forget alot of shit i spend more time worrying about how smart i used to be compared to now but i know its cuz i need to change how i think

  11. I was told the other day that I had "Anxiety Disorder" but it's more "generalized". But my doctor also told me that I've been diagnosed with it for 4 years, and I just never questioned it. Until then.
    My family is going through a lot of changing times and are not sure if my therapy can be covered. Wish me luck ☺️

  12. Im in my third year of college and i still get so afraid of going to my classes bc i feel like everybodys looking at me or critiquing me i get so stiff that i forget to breath. I hate living like this but this is what its become

  13. i was diagnosed with GAD recently it’s really hard to deal with ive always had bad anxiety but i had this intrusive thought and it scared me (still does) i’ve been worrying about it and other things for the last idk how many months it’s really made me depressed bc i don’t feel like myself i’m constantly on edge and scared and anxious i go to therapy and it’s a bit better now but it’s hard to do things cause i feel like it’s never going away

  14. I have anxiety everyday all the time, after i said or Done a special thing i think it threw and is like ”why did i say that why did i do that” and i cry every night because its so fucking annoying. I don’t know why i feel like this. But i hate myself for it

  15. I’m wondering if I have it cause I always break down and start crying in fear of the future thinking that I’m gonna fell.Every single time someone talks to me about college or something like that I cry I’ve been like that.I think it’s because of my dad telling me to go to college and stuff like that and it stresses me out.Not only do I cry over that I cry over simple things like when I don’t understand something in school I’d start crying.Theres many more examples but that’s what I have on the top of my head.And it can’t be hormones because I’ve always been doing this
