I have been an anxious person all my life but started to show even more symptoms around four years ago, just before I started university.
I seem to have many of the symptoms- irritable, agitated, tiredness, self-conscious, sense of detachment, indigestion problems, poor memory, trouble sleeping, worry, expecting the worst, frequent anxiety attacks, pain in my chest and my heart beating ten to the dozen. But I am still not sure if this is anxiety?
My parents have not been the most sympethtic about it and seem to brush it off or get angry if I mention feeling certain ways, this has made it harder for me to admit I have a problem. I don't think they mean any harm by it but they don't seem to understand.
Where I live, is majority old people and I am scared the doctors (like my parents) won't understand and will just fob me off and just see it as me making something out of nothing.
I don't really know what to say to the doctor, if I pluck up the courage to make an appointment and would appriciate advice!
