Hi I'm new here. I'm just wanting to reach out to anyone feeling the same way as me. Im 28 years old and I suffer from generalized anxiety/social anxiety. I constantly feel like people are judging me or looking at me even if I'm just at the grocery store. If someone cuts me off while driving, I will obsessively think of that thought through out the day. I constantly have a feeling of guilt even though I've done nothing wrong, and I am always worrying about the "what ifs" especially when it comes to my family who live an hour away from me. The only thing that can somewhat calm my mind is to clean my house til I feel tired, or make the same list over and over again of what to do. I feel so bad for my husband.. I know it bothers him and he always thinks i just have a negative attitude towards life but that's not the case. I've tried excersie and yoga and I don't know what to do to shake these thoughts. I hope someone out there knows how I'm feeling. I just feel so misunderstood. Even in social situations, I am extremely shy and come off as rude for not talking or joining in the conversation the stress and anxiety is also causing my hair to fall out. How do you all cope with your anxiety???? Any advise or tips would be good.
