I feel like there’s a really mean voice inside my head all the time telling me I’m not good enough, I’ll never be happy again, I shouldn’t even try. Why is mental illness so harsh? Every moment of happiness I get is followed by “Why even bother, you're just going to be sad or anxious again in a few minutes.” I’m so tired of this cycle. I’m not even sad or anxious today. Just numb and exhausted.

I started keeping a journal so I can keep track of what to talk to my therapist twice a month about and this helps to release those thoughts and store them somewhere so I can move on to other things and not feel like I have to keep going over those same anxious thoughts

does anyone take really big deep breaths through your mouth, like with your chest, and it feels like you can’t really catch a good breath so you keep doing it until you get a sigh of relief?

Hi! I am new here. I’ve been struggling with anxiety for over a year. I’ve tried therapy and medication but none of them worked. If I go a few days without panic attacks it is a miracle but the ones that come after are even worse than the ones before. I can’t talk to anyone about this and nobody undestans me. I am from Romania and we don’t have a lot of support groups for this. Lately I can’t get over them. I am always afraid. I don’t know what to do. Can someone help me?

Something that really helps me is visualizing better days ahead. Thinking about how the weather will be warm soon, or holidays with the family. Just knowing that I won’t always be in this awful depression and anxiety. Something has to give eventually.

Depression means you’re not happy where you are. Anxiety means you’re not happy with what you’re doing.

How do you control over thinking? Worrying about stuff that may never happen? How to stop making assumptions??

I always feel foggy headed, I have little shake problems too & I stopped working and going to school because of it. I'm super socially awkward, I can't sing or dance Infront of anyone. My sex drive dropped because of me being insecure & worrying too much. Ugh my life sucks now but I keep on believing it will get better soon. I just have to stay positive no matter what.

I see that a lot of people on here struggle with health related anxiety. I have dealt with this for a decade and it is nice to know I'm not alone. I hate feeling like I'm not in control of my body.

I feel like I’m falling apart. I tried a couple medications recently but didn’t think either helped, but now that I’m off them (I’ve been off meds for ~1 month) I feel much worse than I did before I started taking anything. Is this normal? Does it get better?

I feel as though my anxiety is getting worse. Yesterday I had a few panic attacks from dealing with my financial problems and my PTSD symptoms were really bad yesterday. I feel as though I am never going to get through the trauma I have went through.

I have been having thoughts all day, and they won't go away. I have ticks that go off randomly everyday like pacing, or Fidgeting with my necklace, or stuttering, talking fast. I don't know what to do to calm down without feeling like i need to puke, or pass out.

I am new to this. I have been seeing a therapist for about 3 weeks now. It helps in the moment but when I’m at home I have trouble falling asleep because my brain won’t shut off the thoughts. I’m stressed 100% of the time I have panic attacks and it’s just all out of control. I have been suffering with this for 10 years and I am just now seeking help so I think it will be way harder for me

I hate when I have to put on how I feel when I don't know. I don't even know if it's even negative or not!

Weird days. Those which I feel like I’m lost in myself and that I’m not fully conscious or something like that.

I feel nauseous constantly. My parents don’t want to believe it’s my anxiety. I really need help and they won’t give it to me. I struggle to do even small things like go out for lunch with friends.

It seems to me that people hates me because of my anxiety. I just can't control myself sometimes and become passive aggressive.
