Mine is my over sensitive nature...............I overcompensate by trying not to care about anything that people say or what they think of me but inside I do care and I let my feelings get hurt easily.
I am pretty much freindless as I am afraid to trust as so many have been throuh my life and left me.
I am working on it though. Thanks for posting this Cowboy.

Mine would be chest pressure and then then pain in the ribs, then I started to worry MORE, and my muscles get tense in my neck, which is when I start worring about having another PA.
nausea/dizziness and intense hot flashes that tear my body up. full body tremors as well.
Good thread, Cowboy!!
Great to see everyone posting their anxieties. Great thread cowboy....................
Keep them coming everyone.
Great input, but let's get to the part on how we each deal with our stress and anxiety and if we do not, then what is our plan to kick this anxiety to the curb and live with less anxiety.
Why Worry? Stress and anxiety do have their place. They push us to make necessary changes in our lives. They signal when we may be in danger, and inspire us to take action to get ourselves out of danger. (This danger can be any type of threat to our physical or emotional well-being, from not doing well on a test to losing a job to losing a friend.) In this way, feelings of stress and anxiety are healthy and necessary; without them, we may not act in our own best interest.
How Much Stress and Anxiety is Too Much? The point at which worry and anxiety become unhealthy is when they stop pushing us to act. This can either be because we are worried about things that are not under our control or that have not happened yet, or because we are immobilized by the stress and anxiety we feel, rather than being inspired to act. Whatever the reason, this worry and anxiety can cause a lot of stress on our minds and bodies, and affect our health.
Dealing With Anxiety So now that you understand the nature of stress and anxiety a little better, we can focus on eliminating them. The best remedy for anxiety is self-examination and action. Here are some easy steps to follow:
If you still find yourself concerned on a constant basis, you may want to talk to someone about it, either a friend, or a professional, depending on how severe your worry is and how much it is affecting your overall stress level. Please print this and put it somewhere close by so you can review it when you start to feel anxious or stressed.Sources:Reduction Program in the Treatment ofAnxietyDisorders."American Journal of Psychiatry 1992
I wish you peace and happiness,Kitt
It's always gastro-intesinal for me! I have a lot of anxiety when I go to therapy so my body makes strange noises.Embarrassing.
I also feel very hot and still, like I can't allow myself to make any sudden moves. And I get a stomach ache and a migraine.

You have admitted anxiety and now we need to do the tough part, learning to get through the anxiety and panic attacks.
Who wants to go first. I have posted.
