I'm not sure what to say. I think anxiety is what I have dealt with since childhood, but it just came out in lots of different ways...usually physical symptoms so I thought I was sick. I took medicines that didn't help, and just basically thought I was different than everybody because i was SO NERVOUS about everything. I hide it pretty well. I don't know what to do. I want to be open and honest when I feel sick or suddenly have to leave a place, but I lie about it. then I feel guilty about lying and what's wrong with me, and before I know it, I am spinning in insecurity. I don't believe the doctors because they just have never helped me. Also, as a business owner in a small community, I am embarrassed to share these feelings. I know drs have to keep it confidential, but does anybody really believe they all do? and isn't their own opinion of me affected? Ideas anyone? I'll check later. too nervous to stay on here, but please answer while I'm gone.
