Hi! I’m new here. I finally got the courage to just give it a go.
I’ve been struggling with panic and other issues lately.
I haven’t really talked about it much irl because I don’t feel like anyone else has to deal with my issues. I just always feel nervous, some of the time irrational thoughts just decide to come by and say hi, most of the time it’s just intrusive thoughts, which, considering I guess what you would call past issues, have kinda just hung around for awhile.
When I nervous, you just can’t stop yourself, I know that what I’m thinking is silly, but I guess that doesn’t necessarily change it happening. Trust was always an issues as well and being super cautious of perfectly kind strangers, which is quite upsetting and I know it’s not shyness, considering I have great friends and no particular struggles in talking to most people (Classmates, etc.). I can’t tell sometimes, I feel like I’m lacking independence, because walking down the street is something that, unless I have a friend, is a major stuggle. Kids my age are normally fine with that and doing much more.
I know these are probably some stupid stuff to be upset about, considering the circumstances of the many, many children my age, suffering, I feel bad for comparing my issues to others, but I guess it really depends. All I would like is some advice, I’m considering going to talk to someone in real life, I think I should, I’m just not sure how.
I really want to stop constantly worrying and any tips would help.
