Hi I am new here and i'm also confused if I have anxiety or not I mean when Im at school I feel these weird butterflies in my stomach all the time. If I see somebody new who tries to talk to me I feel a stomach knot or for some reason when I feel insecure in school I kinda want to start crying. And I have a mom I love my mom and all but sometimes I feel like she doesn't understand my emotions and what I go through I sometimes push myself out of my comfort zone but i always end up worse before i even started. I doubt myself a lot too and that distracts me a lot. And I tried telling my mother about the symptoms I have but she was like "you want to be in a hospital stop trusting the internet" and she may be true I am just confused any tips or comments are helpful thanks.
