Not sure if i have an anxiety problem?

Posted , 2 users are following.

Hi, im a 19 year old female and the past year ive been not myself. i dont know how to explain it. i over think silly situations that noone else would worry about and over analyse them enough to get tight chested and coming to dislike myself. i fell out with alot of friends due to how weird i was being, constantly getting upset if i wasnt included etc. i feel that i dont allow myself to really get close to any friends 1: as i feel a bit awkward about it all and 2: im always thinking in my head that they probably dont like me anyway. before i was so relaxed and didnt over analyse every mistake ive ever made but now i do. and also my mood swings are ridiculous! on the outside im as happy as could be but on the inside im an anxious, worrying wreck that just wants to be confidnetĀ  like i was before .... is this anxiety and if so what do i do??????

    Dear kat, I am sorry to hear that you are having problems... it certainly does sound like you are suffering from anxiety issues.. has anything in your everyday day life changed recently?.. it would be a good idea to see your doctor and explain exactly how you feel... can you open up to your parents or close family at all? Please try not to worry too much, this kind of anxiety is common, also perhaps you could have a talk with your friends about what is happening, they very likely would understand and be a lot more understanding than you think... please go and talk to your GP, it is possible to have even a mild medication which could help, also may-

    Be some counselling... I wish you well and hope that you feel better very, very soon. Take care, kind regards to you, Deirdre xx

      i think it all started as a repercussion of my father having bad PTSD (hes ex military) as he can aim his stress towards me. ive recently moved away to university which has disrupted me more i think. my parents know i get anxious and my boyfriend knows how anxious i can get but i dont think they understand im constantly tormenting myself in my head over things ive done or silly little things. im finding it difficult to be happy at the moment and its noone else its all in my head ... so frustrating .. thankyou for replying smile its made me feel like im not being silly xx
