My Life Anxiety

My anxiety started back when I was 9 years old... Of course back then nobody really knew much about it but after explaining it to a psychiatrist just what I was feeling shortness of breath, feeling dizziness, nauseated, fears and phobias. An now to this day I am still feeling some of these I have mentioned along with...I got to the point that I did not want to leave my house at all (agorphobia) As the years have gone by my anxiety seems to have gotten worse I am a very nervous person and have trouble with talking to others . I am a lonely person all I really seem to have is my family no friends.

I also had childhood anxiety ( never diagnosed) and am now 27 and was only diagnosed a few years ago. I recall being afraid of everything as a kid and having what I now know as panic attacks in restaraunts which have started up again for me. I have no idea what the cause behind this has been for me. I also would say I now have a bit of social anxiety which has been really hard to. You definetaly are not alone in this. I don't have the support of my family as they don't really understand it. I hope that you have that in yours. Glad you found this site to help you when you need it.
