always worried and anxious


I have had anxiety for years. Ever since I was a child, I have felt socially anxious and like I am not quite good enough.. As I have become older, I feel upset and anxious, worried about everything and afraid to be around people. I hate being this way. I want to be able to relax and enjoy life. I don't want to live my entire life worrying, upset and afraid. I cry often and feel like I am coming out of my skin. I want so desperately to just live my life and not feel this way. I don't drink, smoke or do drugs. There has to be a way for me to overcome this.

I'm sorry susanringold your going through all of's just so frustrating....I'm glad your here sharing...I would suggest to read some others posts and how they too have suffered and how some have learned copeing skills to manage these feelings. You said you don't take drugs, and many prefer not to take medication, but they still go to therapy. Keep sharing.

Welcome to my world. I feel the exact same way. I'm constantly worrying about my health and barely able to eat, which is making me lose lots of weight due to it.
