    Afraid of people being "angry" with me.

    Yes I'd say this is my number 1 issue. I expect everybody is, no matter what they say, even if I tell them how delusionally i think about it and they reassure me in great effort. There will always, always be a part that believes otherwise, and I fear voicing that to them because it seems...

    How do you believe in your self ?

    The post about accomplishment was amazing. I want to add one thing, don't pressure yourself to accomplish too much. What's most important is that you pat yourself on the back for the tinyyyy things you change each day. Even if that is something small like taking a shower and getting dressed...

    Expressions you get tired of hearing

    You will be free one day, I promise. I also have family that used me. My mother used me financially and I based my whole life around helping her mental illnesses, until one day when we were evicted because I couldn't cover her rent anymore. My life too revolved around the needs of others, and I...

    Not being able to be there for others is getting me down.

    Hey all, how's life. I've been feeling something lately and I can't find people that relate, they seem afraid of my neurotic-ism. Anyways, I have agoraphobia/generalized anxiety disorder. I can't leave the house lately to see friends unless they are in my direct vicinity (small ish town, 10...

    Help, panicking about date and appearance

    Question: Why does the word panicking have a K in it only when there is an ING? Better question: Can somebody PLEASE give me some words of comfort. I'm kind of freaking out. I have this date with a person I met online in a day or two. We've been talking for awhile, a few months. The reason I'm...

    BDD is what it is.

    I spent 2 hours running from mirror to mirror, trying to make myself look okay so I could go to the group SA meetup I signed up for today. 2 Hours staring in the mirror, flipping little hairs this way or that, only to retreat to my dark room, feeling lonely because I missed my bus, and I was...

    how to move on from the past?

    at first it felt extremely beneficial to revisit the past, I had been in denial about the loss of my friends, community, and family from a move from the US to Canada when I was 13 up until 3 years ago, so when I began to dig up the past, it seemed extremely beneficial. I was sorting out...

    What do you want the most?

    Something specific, not just "to not be anxious" or "to not have anxiety" or even "to have friends". Some specific moment in your life that you can imagine ( for instance, "be in a crowd of people and being able to express myself clearly, or crack a joke in front of a group" vs. "be not...

    When I laugh at people.

    When I laugh "at" people is when I feel the deepest sense of love for them. When I see others being vulnerable or being embarrassed is when I feel the most connected to them, I laugh out of pure joy. I realized this when I laughed at my friend when he stuttered. (Hi friend!) And couldn't find...

    If you didn't have social anxiety/issues, would you still be depressed?

    After surfing all the fun, connected and happy looking pictures on facebook of old friends and being quite bewildered (I don't understand how they do it!)..., I wonder, would you still be depressed if you got along well with others, had that feeling of belonging in other people's presence, had...
