  • I have GAD. It comes in the form of health anxiety, social anxiety, ocd, intrusive thoughts, claustrophobia, fear of flying etc. I seem to have the whole shebang. I've just made an appointment to see a cbt therapist because basically it's killing me. The worst is the constant (24/7) feeling in my solar plexis like i can NEVER relax, even doing yoga. I have bad pain in my jaw and teeth because I'm constantly clenching my teeth, even in my sleep. I wake up with my teeth clenched. I really hope cbt helps. I'm also going to try acupuncture. I hope we all find some peace.

  • So can someone help me out ? I'm not sure if I have GAD but now that I am looking into it, I want to know if it is possible that I do. When I get nervous or when I worry about things, I take it to another level. For example , my teacher scolded me at school (about a late assignment) and I swore up and down that was the end of me. My thoughts raced from 'what if she doesn't like me anymore' to 'what if I get kicked out of school' basically unnecessary things. With that being said I tend to lose sleep over simple thoughts. Also, I haven't been eating as I should be. I have lost my appetite and my doctor put me on pills for it and i guess it help. Now, I tend to get aggravating quickly and my mom always ask why I'm so irritable. (I started realizing it after I got put on the pills) With headaches, it seems like I get them when my over worried thoughts really get to me. At first I blank out and stare then, I have headaches which go away when I calm down and even then I'm not fully calm. I always shook off these "symptoms" but now that I've came across this video , I'm not sure I can anymore. (Oh if my age plays apart in this, I am 13 and I'm afraid to ask my parents to take me to a doctor to see if I have GAD or and anxiety disorder.). Thanks

    • GAD is definitely a difficult thing to deal with. There are a lot of tests online you can try to see a vague result. When you're feeling calm enough try to ask your parents to take you to the doctor. You don't have to take this advice, just trying to help. Good luck! Edit : I have been diagnosed with GAD

  • I used to have this when I got diagnosed when I was 17 but then I was having a lot of cognitive therapy that I kind of got annoyed for I did not know what to talk about and stopped going to my therapist. Before my therapist told me the psychiatrist said I have GAD; I actually had this all thru my college years but I did not understand. I cry and become very tense. I tend to absorb everyone feelings so much I noticed I use telepathically thoughts so I become so uncomfortable. I took microbiology course and I studied so much and memorized a lot but due to those thoughts I couldn’t control them. I actually met with the professor for help and clarify my notes but my tests scores weren’t that good. The professor even said I wasn’t studying enough. That broke my heart and I actually losing confidence. I also thought I was doing something wrong. I bought myself a whiteboard and studied the whole night and day but I suck. I think I am kind of slow and sensitive being. :( I honestly want that letter from the psychologist so when I take future courses the teacher would understand why I’m slower to finish a test. I have GAD combined with OCD but I’m normal and awesoem. I just a bit anxious and sometimes insecure which leads me to feel lonely. 😔 I can be an ambivert and talk a lot this is why people comment I’m not shy. I do believe the only way I can feel better is by exercise, talking to others, and reading a lot but I got so tired of absorbing those thoughts I did not know what to do. I felt like I wanted to die and I wanted to take my heart out of my chest and throw it away (figuratively )

  • this is weird, but does anyone have most of these symptoms, but a specific symptom is anxiousness and irritability? I have memory anxiety too, like sudden spurts of anger when I think about a memory. Its like a certain memory that can be a dream or a mistake I made in the past that caused my adrenalin to rush and it makes me feel like I'm about to explode? I really think I should talk to my doctor about this, I literally have all of these symptoms.

Simaku idk but I feel like I'm afraid of accepting that I have this, whenever my doctor asks me if I have anxiety or depression, I always say no because my family is with me, my mother doesnt believe me when I say things like that, she doesnt believe I have social anxiety either. I think I might go to the doctors when im in college so I can figure things out without my parents butting in.

    • But it is much simplier than that. It is called major depressive disorder. I got diagnosed since 7 years ago because of this way of thinking. Took seroxat, a SSRI, that really helped a lot and worked great on me and made me feel the perfect person. No worries, nothing ever stressed me anymore and when thinking of those idiotic past events, i just laugh proudly to those jerks.

  • If I'm worried about something happening the next day, I will force myself to stay awake the whole night so it doesn't come as soon as it would feel it did if I went to sleep. Sucks when I worry about school a lot. It often ends with me not being able to go to whatever I was supposed to go to because the lack of sleep makes me feel sick.
