Anxiety Girl!!! .... Able to Jump to the Worst Conclusion in a single bound!


Hi everyone...

My name is Laura and I suffer from Generalized Anxiety Disorder and because of that... I tend to find myself in mild depressions. I say mild because I am still able to function and be happy in social situations and at work. I still find joy in life. . . but sometimes my mind has raced so much about the past... future... the present. This will result in me being void of any extra energy. I end up just laying around for hours and playing mindless games on my phone. I try to put on a happy face and also force myself to enjoy playtime with my 4 year old son. I find joy in him being there with me and watching him play. Also hugging and cuddling him. . . the issue is that I feel like a bump on a log. I lack any motivation to do anything but the bare minimum.

Anyways... here i am. This is my first post and initial introduction. I'm sure I will be posting more soon.

I am just here to be able to relate to others without feeling like i'm bothering people or having people get tired of hearing about my worries that are very silly to them but huge to me.

lol! Thanks, Delta! I sure hope so... I am definitely seeking some type of relief. I'm not one to talk about my feelings and just hold it in but i think a lot of us GAD folks do that because we also worry about bothering people LOL! it's we're stuck between a rock and a hard place right?

I know what you mean.

Hi Laura! I love your anxiety girl! Oh I love age 4. I have a 6 and 10 year old. It’s good you can be happy in your life but I hear your frustration in wanting to have more motivation. I could use some more motivation myself. My anxiety usually turns me on full speed ahead but then when I get down it’s hard to keep up with all that I need to do. I think you will like it here and hopefully find some tips to help out. Best to you!

Hi Starrlight! Thank you so much for your response to my "Welcome" message. It means a lot to hear support and also to know I have fellow parents of young children in the community. I think you and I might have that in common a bit. Isn't it funny how many different forms of anxiety there are? i'm looking forward to the stories and communication with all of you. I hope to help some others too at the same time.

Yes different types of anxiety and other disorders branching from the anxiety like ocd. I look forward to getting to know you better.


Hi laurarose.

Welcome to you.

Look forward to seeing you around 😊🌼🌼

I'm new here too. I've struggled with depression & anxiety for years. It's all I know. I feel so guilty that I'm a burden & people get tired of it. My husband is very supportive but I still feel so selfish. It's a vicious cycle. I've also been feeling no motivation at all. It's so hard to do the simplest things. Just wanted you to know you're not alone


Oh heck I can't believe it ~ I have " Anxiety Girl" as my screensaver lol!! And it is so true of me!! Able to jump to the worst conclusion in a single bound. I always think the worst!! Hope this community can offer you companionship 😊

Gd morning, hoping u and others the best. I 2 are battling these anxiety issues as well. For me it all started with smoking cigarettes for almost 2 and half decades and landed in the er with increased heart rate. Quit cold Turkey last Jan 19th and developed bad withdrawals that eventually went away in 2 weeks. The only things that stuck around was the slight heaviness chest pain around my heart and frequent shortness of breath from anxiety. Thank God the chest pain went away 2 weeks ago but still have anxiety breathing issues now. But it comes and goes. Breathing using your belly helps alot in calming me down and does help with sob. Was prescribed .5 lorazepam whenever needed and was taking .25 half tablet every 3 days for sob anxiety and was a temp cure miracle but decided to wean off. (Was depending on it and didn't want to be addicted)so far I'm doing alot better, sorry for the rambling just figured I get some things off my mind and hoping I can help ease a little bit from others that r going through these pain in the rear issues that we r battling. I'm trying not to Google symptoms and breathing exercises and having this site are a life saver. Hoping everyone a great safe and healthiness upcoming wknd😀👍lastly so done with this rain we been getting in NJ. USA. Ugh

You’re in the right place lol, we’re all the type that jump to the worst conclusions in a single bound you’re just funnier than us in being able to word it like that lol! I couldn’t have explained myself better than what you wrote except I have a 12 and 16 year old instead of a 4 year old. I couldn’t have said it better seriously, bumping along on a log called my phone doing mindless window shopping to fill some void I haven’t figured out yet! I know how it feels to know you’re doing just the bare necessities to get by and not fulfilling the potential you know is in you! I’m so glad you shared your story because it really helped me put words to mine! It will get better and someday these bouts of mild depression will disappear! 💫
