My anxiety has been terrible lately. I dont want to leave my room and I just sit around waiting for bad stuff to happen and I hate it.

No normally something that's not that big of a deal but with my anxiety and depression I make a bigger deal out of it than I should

n yeah I get this ... I find it helps if I can tell someone about it

I was sending it all to my aunt, which was a bit much for her
so now I post my anxieties on forums

I think its really helped

and like you alot of my worries I blow out of proportion

like I have been in pain for 2 weeks with my hip joint
but today I had a nice afternoon with my Dads ex girlfriend

and the pain has just disappeared !

That's awesome I'm happy for you. My family dont really get it so it's really hard for me to talk to them about it.

thankyou , well maybe not your family then
but maybe you can be more specific on her
of what you predict happening, that is what works for me

and I speak as a fellow sufferer

hey I'm going to bed now
but will pick up your thread in the morning

I hope you manage to get some sleep

I used to be like that a long time ago. A non-specific feeling of doom would come over me in the evenings. I thought it had something to do with the darkness, but now I think not. Eventually, that problem went away by itself pretty much. Feelings come and feelings go.
