Mental health in the family

Hi, mental health runs in my family. I do not have a diagnosis myself but sometimes wonder if I do have a mental health condition. I get very overwhelmed and sometimes for no apparent reason. Today I feel on edge, can't relax, agitated, stressed, low mood, overwhelmed, confused, racing muddled thoughts. I get like this sometimes and when I do, I just feel so overwhelmed, I just close up and want to run away from it all. I usually stay in my bedroom in silence.

Anyone had similar symptoms?

Thanks

Hi there.
sounds to me like maybe you have some anxiety issues, but I’m no doctor. But I can relate and that’s the way I feel when my anxiety flares up. Could you try and get an appointment with your GP to see if you can get a diagnosis or some help?
