    What is happening to me?

    Let me just say up front that I am naturally a very quiet, socially anxious and pessimistic person. There are things that I will often want to do or try but have a talent for talking my self out of it or creating reasons why I shouldn't bother. So as a result I feel like I don't really...

    Weird Panic Attacks

    Hey there, So I have been experiencing this "attacks" since I have been a kid and kinda learned to control them and calm myself down, but never actually consulted anyone about them.

    Can't Admit What May Be Going On With Myself...

    My bestie has experience in the field of Psychology, and I was moaning and groaning to her earlier today that I feel so lost and I can't even THINK the actual name of what might be my issue, much less say it out loud (or even in my head). I told her I really don't know what is wrong with me. She...

    Having trouble writing the letter "s".

    My anxiety is so bad I'm having trouble writing the letter "s". I try to write it and it takes a while and I can't explain it. I don't remember this happening before. Maybe I'm losing brain functioning? I don't know.

    WTF is going on upstairs?

    I don't know what's happening to me. I am fine and then I am not. Often during the day I see the future of myself dying, which is a horrible graphic, but just a short duration. It's happening maybe once an hour that I'm awake, more often if I'm stressed. I'm feeling okay but then a friend or...

    Thought Broadcasting/Telepathy/Synchronicity/Gang Stalking/etc.

I'm desperate to understand what the hell is happening. I mean, I can't believe humanity is actually in the dark about a phenomenon that is...

    Anxiety, intuition, freaking out, etc..

    Does anybody else here ever feel like they have a difficult time separating anxiety and their intuition? I've heard and read a lot that basically says your intuition is your best guide and to never ignore a gut feeling. What about when you get that awful impending sense of doom that makes you...
