Hi Everyone,

Not sure if this is the right place to post.. but here is my situation:

I am a college student and over the past 2 weeks have been feeling really anxious. Finding it hard to fall and stay asleep, keep having really stupid thoughts that something bad will happen, I have also been nervous to submit essays (thinking that I will fail, but I keep getting good marks). Last night I saw a cockroach in my house and i haven't slept yet, I don't feel safe sleeping unless someone is watching me. I have a really important presentation coming up and im not really anxious about doing it, I just don't know if I will be able to leave the house. I was diagnosed with depression and panic disorder as a teen..but this feels different. I don't really know what to do. Any help or advice would be appreciated. Thanks

It always feels different when you debt go through it for a while...just remember its a phase and try to breathe through your nose.

Hi Roxie

Welcome to the forum. :)

I'm sorry you're having a hard time with anxiety at the moment. Have you see the sticky thread Dealing with Anxious Thinking in the Anxiety forum? I've found it really useful in the past.

If you have any questions, please feel free to PM myself or another forum buddy.

We're a friendly bunch, so have a look around and make yourself at home.

Hi Roxy Hart
Welcome to the forum well done for posting
So sorry to hear you are so anxious i suffer with anxiety so can understand and relate to how you feel.
Can you go and see your doctor and tell them whats going on if you feel you cant talk to them try writing it down?
