When people could care less!!!!

Hello loves,

Sometimes it's easier to talk on here rather than family! Sometimes I feel that no one cares about my Generalized Anxiety Disorder...once I start feeling like no one cares I back off and be to myself for a week or TWO....then family/friends wanna ask are you ok....hell yesssss, I'm fine now but where TF were you at when I needed to talk! It's hard having GAD, all I want is someone who will listen without judging me! I will be starting my counseling sessions every week because it's so bad! I also have Postpartum Anxiety so it's extremely out of control....I will also be put on two different types of medication! I start Wednesday, I can't wait!! I hope everything is going well for everyone!!!

We are always here for you. Sometimes when I have anxiety or a panic attack and I call one of my friends, they kind of blow me off. So I know how you feel. You just need someone to talk to and listen or just keep your mind off of the anxiety.

Hi Joimom16, It's definitely easier to talk here where people understand and care what you are going through. So many times over the years I felt as if I was talking to myself. No one really cares so why waste my breath. I would close down and only talk with my therapist. I'm glad you are taking matters into your own hands in that you know that you need help. Good for you starting counseling every week as well as reaching out for medication until you stabilize your anxiety.

Good Luck in going forward and remember we are always here to support you. Take care. x

Thank you, I Was Really Trying My Best not to take medicine, unfortunately my anxiety is OFF THE CHARTS right now! Maybe 3 months of medication and I can come off....if not I will keep learning how to manage it and eventually be off the medicine, I don't know which two medications the doc will put me on but I have been researching so I will at least know some of them lol

A good plan Joimom16. When suffering so much with anxiety, it's a wise choice to reach out for some medication to at least take the edge off. In doing that, like you said, you can learn other methods of managing it. I wish you well. x

The truth is, most people without anxiety wouldn't understand because they do not have it. I know exactly how you feel and every one of us with anxiety on here understand. We are all here for you.

Thank you, I constantly tell myself that, but when family/friends come to me about something that's going on with them I try my best to be compassionate even though I may have never been in the situation that they present at the time!! They could at least do it for me lol....I'm glad I have you guys to talk too, thanks for being a listening ear!!

Hello, almost two years 😢 all of this started when my daughter was 5 months old, she is 9 months now and I'm sooo ready for this to be over, well actually I really can say it's been over a year for me because I had antenatal anxiety as well...this is horrible!

i tried to hide my anxiety from family and friends which led to me losing most of my friends because they thought i was avoiding them...i have missed out so much in life because of anxiety and thought i may as well tell everyone how i feel

Most people were positive about it and it made my anxiety ease a bit especially when i didn't have to lie about not going to parties weddings birthdays etc...people know how i feel now and understand if i can't attend these things because of my illness....but nothing beats talking to fellow sufferers..wouldn't it be great to all meet up somewhere? lol but we'd probably all be too anxious to attend..lol.

I would lend myself out for talking since I have been suffering from GAD for around eleven years now. I have come to the conclusion that in an effort for GP's to be seen to be helping people, diagnoses such as GAD actually mean very little. The so-called autistic spectrum is the same. Such a wide range of behaviour is almost impossible to make sense of. I have no doubt that people having been told about their condition become more difficult to deal with and are passed from one psychiatrist to another psychiatrist to another and all that brings is a sadness that no one could possibly help. The only ones who could possibly help are those with that named condition in a free conversation. Let me know.
