Well I had a detailed post discussing my anxiety issues (which I worked forever on!!!!). But it magically disappear so EF it -________- *throws laptop *
Anyway, my name is Shawn, I'm almost 17 and my anxiety is becoming noticable and causing physical problems. I've always been super organized and clean and made good grades in school, and one hell of an artist. I'm not antisocial and love people, I just feel awkward and nervous in social situations and can't relax and pull my words together. So I usually aviod talking and having to talk, unless I'm around friends and family.
Earlier this month I was itching everywhere and assumed I was having an allergic reaction to my medicine (but I wasn't). I paniced and thought would my throat would close up. My mom took me to the doctor and they reffered me to nephrology and cardiology for High blood pressure. I kept telling myself I had a disease or health condition. Those appointments came out successful and everything was ok. My BP is also normal again. After that, I've been in the ER for symptoms I now know are anxiety. Most symptoms have subsided, except shortness of breath and fatigue. Even though I've had fatigue lately, I hate sitting down and get this urge go jump around and swing on vines. Should I seek therapy for anxiety? My parents are getting exhausted from hospital trips.
I wanna go back to being that goofy person I was years ago and enjoy my upcoming senior yr. and college experience....and can I do so without meds?
