Ugh, Halloween is so stressful. I was watching a horror movie with my dad and fiance (Halloween to be exact) and the whole time i couldnt stop thinking, what if i snapped and started doing that? I know i could never do that, but its just like my anxiety runs what goes on in my head. It always makes me assume the worst and asks all of these what if? questions and im just so sick of it. It even affects the way my body feels sometimes, like getting butterflies when im in fact scared to death of the thought, or when someone turns their back to me i have such horrible thoughts of things i would never do! I just wish i could learn how to handle this without having to be put on medication because i dont think i need it, ive accomplished a lot by myself, but i still have a long way to go. I just wish i could wake up in the morning and never have this problem again. That would be nice :) lol

You stated my exact sentiments, I wish I could wake up in the morning and be my old happy self, no stress, no anxiety, no depression. I guess for now I take the good days and the bad days I try to make good.

Thanks for sharing.

I dont really know why this happens, but even when I don't have anxiety on my mind and ive actually had a good day, i'll suddenly get depressed for no reason completely out of nowhere and I tend to dwell on it for a while after that. Its kind of difficult for me to explain, but its like my brain gets really foggy and I just can't think clearly and that tends to amp up my anxiety even more. Does anyone have this problem or maybe even some advice? confused

Sometimes I am not sure what comes first the depression or the anxiety.  They drive each other but I have learned to take over and be the driver of the bus.  I will not let these two disorders live my life or rule it.

I quit trying to figure out why it happens but deal with o=how to get through it.  So you are not alone in your feelings.

Gentle Hugs

Porcupine-
I know what you mean. I've suffered from panic attacks, hypochondria, OCD, and agoraphobia for years. My conditions have been getting worse lately since I just moved to a new city and started school here. I've been so stressed. Lately I've developed this fear of going crazy, snapping one day and hurting people I love and my kitten. It scares that crap out of me. I just obsess over things and once something goes in my head, I'll obsess over it. Like my therapist told me I was driving myself crazy because of my anxiety, so since then I've thought about it and thought about it until I really feel like I'm going crazy.

Everyone else-thanks so much for all your help, this forum has really calmed my nerves. it doesnt help 100%, but it does a lot. I'm glad I'm not alone with all of this. no one in my family seems to understand what I'm going through. I feel like they think I can just get over it. As you all know, it is not that easy. Well, stay strong!! yeah

I know what you mean. I'm usually pretty good with my anxiety but its always flares up at night and that just makes it even more frustrating because I dont have anyone I can be around and that just makes it worse. I'm learning to get a better handle on it, just reminding myself that I would never hurt anyone because I'm just not that kind of person and that I will never let my anxiety get as bad as it was before. Its a very difficult mind set for me to keep but I'm fighting it as hard as I can and most of the time it works, I just need to deal with the other things that branched from my anxiety and see how much more control I can gain. Its a struggle but its definitely one worth doing. Good luck to everyone :)
