I think one of my major problems is that everything gets on my nerves way too much, and I don't necessarily have a full blown panic attack when this happens, I almost never do, but I get very agitated very often...the littlest things that people say bother me and although I try my hardest not to let it show with co-works/friends, I have no problem letting it affect my relationship with the people closest to me...and I really hate it...sometimes i don't even pick up the phone when my mom calls because I know the littlest thing she says that I don't agree with will make me feel agitated/frustrated and I'll just want to cry...is this considered anxiety? or am I just way too sensitive? or is this a whole nother psychological issue im not even aware of? :(

Jenni

I am sorry you are having issues with anxiety.  Have you visited your physician to see if something else could be going on?

Also therapy is very helpful in learning how to deal with anxiety.

I am sure you will find lots of other members will respond to your post with insightful information.

Gentle Hugs

Stkitt, I always feel that way, exactly, except sometimes I'm unable to hold back at the people from work or when I'm at a store.  I think its anxiety, meaning, we have a very low tolerance to anything.  God Bless!  Try to think before you react & tell yourself it's your anxiety & try to accept the situation.

Jenny, this is me exactly. I let everything get on my nerves, especially this one co-worker at my work who does the least in the office and makes the most demands and makes more money than me. This really burns me up. I could do circles around what she does in a day and she purposely does the least forever trying to get everyone else to her work. I stay agitated at every little thing. I have had a stomach ache for every day for 4 days now due to anxiety and stress over the intestinal gas I am experiencing. I have crying spells. I do need to see a psychologist but I know they are too expensive probably for me to be able to afford. I was given the name of a family and individual counseler to see, but never did. I worry about every little ache I have in my stomach, worry about every little gas pain, worry about every back spasm or pain, worry about any flare of rectal bleeding. I fit the description exactly of someone suffering from stress right down to constantly taking all these over the counter meds for every little ache or gas pain. And the more I get agitated over my gas problem, the more it comes on. I feel threatened by these things. But I cannot get myself together. I worry about the gas in my system being something major, obviously my gastro doctor didn't think so the other day when I talked to them or they would have demanded I come in right away. I just want to sleep because then I know I won't feel any symptoms. But I've had these before and they went away. And I was stressed over them then. No matter what anyone says they cannot convince me this is nothing.
 
I am posting a link about stress symptoms alot of which are some of the same as anxiety/panic symptoms. I saw alot of my symptoms in this link plus in anxiety symptoms sites as well. Good luck. I need some also.

Anxiety is a sneaky thing and it will get you anytime it can ....this is why tools and self help tech as well as sometimes meds are needed to FIGHT the Biggest fight of your life...........

Could be, but my mom was a lot like that during my teenage years and was diagnosed with depression. If you can't work through it and it's affecting your life, see a doctor.

Hey Jenni and At wits end. Sorry that you guys are going through that.

I am too. I have very similar feelings as both of you. I get crying spells, abdominal discomforts/pains [which the gastro said it's nothing, probably just a sensitive stomach] everyday, shortness of breath, fatigue and all. I'll like to sleep to get things off my mind and always pray that I will wake up all ready to work at full energy. However, that never happen.

Indeed, it affected my friendships and all. Most of my close friends are no longer talking to me, maybe because I always don't feel like talking anymore as I was feeling the annoyance in me. Then I get very tired that I don't feel like talking anymore. I feel like I've lost a lot of friends. I get very lonely and feels anti-social at times.

Talking to my parents will always leave me crying after that. Just feeling unappreciated and helpless. I feel guilty for very little things that I should feel guilty about.

The thing that is different for me is that, I don't worry about the pains/discomforts [though sometimes I do. I always try my best to reassure myself that it's nothing serious.] I worry about upcoming events and tests. I get lots of mind blanks, lack of concentration, lack of energy, trouble remembering things and numbness too.

Yeah, it's horrible. I'm just waiting for 25th July to come soon. That'll be my first ever visit to the psychiatrist.

Just sharing how I feel and what I experience here as things kind of got worst compared to the last time I posted about my symptoms.

Take care all! HUGS to you guys.

lots of love,
Jaslyn (:

Hello All

The website for CBT online is http://moodgym.anu.edu.au/.

I have had people tell me they found this very helpful and it is free, no gimics involved..............

Take a look if it is something you think would help you.

((((((((HUGS))))))))))
