Hello. I am 19 years old. I've been having these recurring episodes of anxiety since I was 11. I'm usually occupied with worry over something that is completely nonsensical, that I know I shouldn't be worrying about or focusing on, and I can never seem to shake it. The episodes are usually several weeks to a month or so long, and they are usually months or years apart. I've only had 4 or 5 of these episodes. The anxiety seems to kick in around a time I'm under stress. I'll be stressed out over exams, trouble with friends, something scary happening, and all of a sudden, I'll be preoccupied over something completely silly. After a while, the anxiety tends to fade on its own, but I'm just tired of feeling this way. I usually get a lot less sleep during these periods, and I can't afford that now, because I'm in college and need sleep to function properly. All of that aside, I just feel like a prisoner to my own anxiety during these periods, and it's scary. Should I go see a counselor at my school? Are there any effective strategies that I can use to alleviate or even rid myself of this anxiety?
