Getting anxious about change

Posted , 4 users are following.

Recently ivebeen getting really anxious about change. Can't stop comparing my life to what I was like a year ago. I just feel like I'm stuck and I'll never get a job and feel like my normal self just feel like I have no emotions sometimes. I basically live at my boyfriends and I hate the thought of going home and stuff.. Even though I know I have too it just makes me feel anxious. I'm only 18 but I can't imagine being 30 and drivin to work and taking my kids to school.. May sound weird but just the thought of everything changing freaks me out, sick of the butterflies and feeling low and thinking about everything. I've got therapy starting 21st March. Anyone experienced the same thing or has any advice ?

    It sounds like your home life is uncomfortable for you.  You seem like you need to seek counseling on how to deal with your feelings about your home life!

      I just feel like everyone around me is doing things and I just don't like talking to people I used too and I'm in a rut and I'll be stuck in it forever. My relationship isn't the healthiest but feel like I don't have anything else

    Hey katie2705. The first thing I would like to tell you and it may not seem relevant but baby you are way to young to have such long term feelings like you are.Go home. Tell someone who gives a sh*t. Get help. Find someone who is crazy over you...or if nothing else a puppy! For REAL. I hope you haven't started self medicating, for there is no correct dose of anything you prescient yourself. Don't wait until you are 40 or 50 and decide to get help then, you can waste a lot of happy being sad. I don't know your whole story, but I can tell you that at 18 you are NOT with the man who will love you forever. GO HOME

    Katie!!!! You are screaming your answer but you can't hear yourself! You are stuck between not wanting to go home or staying with what sounds like a miserable relationship! Drop that boy like a hot potato and high tail yourself to a good therapist or a group such as codependent anonymous. You are too young to be stuck in a rut already
