@misterkatamari: I have been diagnosed as just having Generalized Anxiety Disorder. Scary films, certain social situations, or even something as simple as going to the grocery store can have me paranoid for hours to even days at a time. It's not as bad as before, where I would have to mentally prepare myself before going out for about an hour, but still.
Yesterday was just a bad day, I think due to a combination of stress and caffeine (who knew something as simple as a cup of coffee could throw you into an anxious fit?)...and you're right, I'm currently surrounded by a very understanding group of family and friends, thank god haha.
@Lilith: EXACTLY! On one hand I am glad that I'm a very open-minded individual, as it's always given me an advantage in school and in my current job. When I had a lot of freetime, my mind would kind of go into overload and give me anxiety off the charts, sometimes resulting in a panic attack. :/ So now, I just put my overthinking to good use (doing puzzles, reading a LOT, etc.)
Thank you both so much for the response, I feel a whole lot better. I really love this site. :)
Hope you guys have a wonderful week and I'll definitely keep ya updated! :)
