    Hopeless, Terrified, and Alone.

    I'm lower than I thought was possible. When I start thinking of my memories, or things that I love, or places that I've been, I get extremely anxious and terrified and I don't know why.

    Does anyone relate to this kind of terror?

    I wonder if anyone has experienced what I experience on a regular basis. It's usually at night when getting ready for bed, I start getting really terrified about all the 'bad' and 'evil' in the world.
