    confidence increases anxiety

    I've not been around in a while. But I have been spending much time trying to 'fix' myself in what area's i can. I can't say for def if it is related, but I think diet really does affect how you feel. I've been eating healthier for the past three weeks and I beginning to see a difference in my...

    I'll try to keep this short. :p (Didn't know where to post this)

    Pretty much since 2010 I've been repeating positive phrases in my mind. It started off simply because I had low self esteem, I one day decided to start repeating phrases like "You're good at this," over and over again to see if anything would change. I found that after doing so, I became more...

    worried CMHT will pressurise me to do what they want :(

    I know I don't want meds to manage/help with whatever I'm going through. But I have a CMHT assessment in a couple of days and I'm worried that I'll be pressurised to at least try them out. I have once before and it was a complete disaster and my concerns really weren't listened to. It was so...

    Social Anxiety - impending 21st birthday party

    Hi everyone. Where to start? I consider myself to be in a vicious circle and I can't stop it. I take major issue with the way I look - my skin, my disgusting thick hair, my dark circles under my eyes, my teeth, my smile... and so on. I was bullied quite a bit as a child and no matter what...
