I feel disconnected from my family

So since I started feeling anxious two months ago, sometimes I don't want to talk to people and this worries me because I don't want to change at all... Is this normal of anxiety and will it go away after its gone?

    I actually get like this too. For me, it is getting better but it happens in waves. I find myself getting irritated easily or annoyed, but it does get better. Are you taking anything for your anxiety? Do you see a therapist? This will all help.

      My therapist did not suggest meds until I was seeing her for about 3 months. But I insisted on it, and I am glad I did. I was stuck in a really bad cycle of anxiety that I never thought I would be able to pull myself out. Medicine has been a good tool for getting out of the cycle and i think more clearly and can actually use therapy as a tool now.

      I have only been going to therapy for a month now, my anxiety is a bit better, physical anxiety is gone funny feelings don't bother me as much. All that worries me is the thoughts I get that scare me and I'm hoping to finally beat those soon too.

    Its just a mood swing, as I feel, and its a temporary feeling it comes and goes.

    Hi Daniel. Yes I feel like that sometimes. I think it is partly because being anxious is very tiring and sometimes the mind thinks "I really can't think about interaction right now when I'm trying just to stop having these scary anxious feelings". Also you have to make a choice when you talk to family, friends etc.. as to whether you admit you are feeling awful or pretending you are ok. That is the tiring bit!! I try to accept this feeling and tell myself that there are certain things I need to make effort for over and over again and sometimes I can be more reclusive. It's a mix really without beating yourself up. All the best
