Hey everyone, I'm new here, so, please, take good care of me :-)
If you've looked into this topic, thank you! I'm about to write about my experiences, so, if you have some free time, please read and give me an advice.
I don't know what's happening anymore, I've done some research and my symptoms vary from low self-esteem to anxiety or depression, some websites even say it's the same thing.. that's why I'm confused.
My condition : overweight, low self-esteem, not employed (quit cause of my "anxiety) and a stressful life in general.
Now, I know all this can cause anxiety, but I'm not sure if it's cause of anxiety or low self-esteem... does low-self esteem cause anxiety or the other way around? I guess either is true.
I gew up in a stressful family, always problems etc... I've been overweight since childhood and developed low self-esteem. I was suffering alright, but it was not so bad till now.
My symptoms : worries, irrational fears, self-judgement, social withdrawal, panic, uneasiness, increased heartbeat, dizziness, loss of touch with reality to some extent, headaches, fear of sicknes (which actually makes me sick again and again), feel like throwing up when I overdo myself physically or emotinally... It wasn't physical up till now, but now I have headaches, get tired easily and when I'm in a stressful situation, it feels like I'm about to pass out (at times), my body goes numb and stuff like that... strong emotions make me feel VERY sick, hell, even good emotions, damn it !
Is this anxiety? according to the internet, it is... so what do I do now?
Fix my self-esteem and lose weight I guess, will that help?
And in general, is anxiety developed through stressful life?
How do I solve it?
I feel I'm so wrong, makes me wanna turn off my feelings forever..
I'm tough and manly on the surface but on the inside, I'm so fragile, I break down at every little stressful situation, but I never show it..
I wanna know what living feels like, I haven't experienced anything good for a while...
How do I improve?
Sorry for the long read & poor English.
