I can't work out whether the amount of anxiety I am having is normal because I know most people get anxious in different ways.
I often find myself checking over and over again whether I have got things and before I go to sleep I always mentally check where everything in the house is. I get very troubled when I know I have to do something but cannot due to lack of information or the right people are not there, I get very worried if things don't follow a time table or I have things taken from me which I know I won't need but want to keep just in case. I am always rereading, checking and asking other people to do things if I think I might have them wrong...
When I try and ignore or suppress these feelings I get very bad chest pain above my heart, I feel as though I can't breathe and I get agitated. This also happens when I know I am going to be late.
I know it sounds crazy but I really don't know whether everyone feels like that. If it is helpful, I get these attacks every 15-20 minutes during school and every hour at home.
