Hi guys/girls,

i just wanted to start a thread about the different types of anxiety that doctors labels is all with.

i do know there are a few types, neurosis, social, GAD seems to be the most common but I know there are more a lot more....

firstly, mine, they say is call anxiety neurosis or free floating. This relates to me having anxiety 24hrs a day all year around. 

The anxiety I feel is kind of based on a continuum. at one end it is barely noticeable, however at the other it is so severe i can barely move and nothing in particular can bring an episode on or its severity. 

in the early 90s I hadn't a clue what was happening to me, I thought I was losing my mind for good, I was, but right there and then I didn't know what was happening to me. There were no helpful websites like DBG to help me out, I had to search for books to try and find what exactly was wrong with me.

i didn't know what anxiety was, I think ide watched a comedy which had anxiety in the title with billy crystal, and that's as far as my knowledge of anxiety went.

anyway, my point is-after 30 years of anxiety I've  just about got a hold on my own personal anxiety struggles to find out exactly what was wrong with has been a long journey, it will never go away but it will for others and i hope that if you contribute to this you can help others get better.

And if nothing else, if reading this few little paragraphs takes your mind off how your feeling for a minute or two then its achieved something. Take care, johnny

I hear you brother ....Anxiety is one of the worst illnesses I've ever come across for me and it's a daily battle. Things like the normal meds that we all used to be given by the docs did work for a time till they started to take them away...(money ) and that's why its amazing that sites like this exsist. I dont know what I would do ! Mine all stems from a major car crash when I broke my back in 99 and I used to be a dancer. I was then diagnosed with fibromyalgia in 2008. Depression and anxiety hangs over Mr everyday and when docs take away the one thing that helps you ...you really do think your starting to go insane....your like...these people are meant to be helping me sort this nasty feeling out bit make it worse !! If I didn't have to go and get my dinner on the go right now I would go on for hours about it !! Interesed to hear other people's tjougts ? Mine feels like something really bad is about to happen all the time and I panic easily for no reason and get very paranoid that I've upset someone or pisses them off...feel like I'm forever saying sorry for stuff I've not even done lol.

Peace and love to all you peeps that suffer..it's not nice and there's lots of help out there ..more so these days. Xx

Some are indeed more serious than others, however a panic disorder is a panic disorder. You can call it a sandwich but it will still be a panic disorder.

What I've seen in my years after seeing countless neurologists, psychiatrists, and various other professionals about this disorder is they really don't understand what the patient is going through. To describe such a thing to a professional that may of not of even experienced such a thing in his or her life time will never understand how complicated it is to live an everyday life just like anyone else in the world let alone prescribe you what you honestly need to get through this seeing such disorders don't go away easily, if at all. 

From my personal experience, I wake up every single day in panic and I fall asleep in panic. I'm prescribed KP and Xan for this and it does work to an extent but I had to suffer for so many years until I got on the right medication I needed to be on. The only way to truly describe this panic is feeling trapped as if you were hunted by something (metaphorically speaking) while feeling alone and helpless in consistent fear. It becomes so intense you start to shake uncontrollably and begin to sweat. It gets pretty bad.

To see you, a down to earth man that understands what others are going through like myself breaks my heart. You and I both have very similar issues, I can't say it's the same but I've had this my whole life and it seems you have aswell and I'm very sorry to hear that. You must know, you're never alone in this world. There's more people that have the same thing or similar things going on right under your nose and you may not see it yet. 

One thing I didn't note which I should of noted is I was diagnosed with Aspergers Syndrome at a young age which might be causing some of the panic that I always go through on a daily basis due to the fact I see things differently than others, for instance people without AS may look at something as a good thing and somebody with AS may view the same thing as bad and begin to fear what it might be. This may come into play with some of these anxiety disorder cases and it's generally overlooked if you're an adult seeing you kinda grow out of the obvious symptoms as you get older.

I'm not saying everyone has it, no that's absurd. I'm glad you made this thread though. Hopefully more can come in and share their stories aswell.

Best wishes Johnny,

-VII

I am so tired of having anxiety. I think that mine is more generalized anxiety and social anxiety. I can never fully relax. Some days the anxiety is so bad that I avoid going to the store because there is social interaction. I have add and in 2010; I went into a diabetic coma for one week. Ever since The coma; my cognitive functions have slowed. I find it hard to communicate verbally. When I do- I feel like an is out because I am always lost for words. The other day I was looking at a truck and couldn't articulate the word tailgate. I know what it is and I have a high iq; but due to poor verbal communication- I feel that I come accords as stupid. My living situation does not help either. I moved in with my now husband 2 years ago. We have a nice little home, but we live in our Landlord's yard and there is an RV campground surrounding us on all sides. We are literally 10 feet from our landlords house and they are very nosey. I can't even open a window with out someone outside of it.The landlord's tell me exactly where to park in the driveway' and then take sticks to create a "box" where I need to park. The landlord is always staring into my window- looking at me. They call me and tell me to turn off my hallway light. I can't even take out my trash without being questioned by them as to what is in my trash can. I feel like I have no privacy. I keep begging my husband to move; but he always takes up for them. He also runs to them to discuss my my health or our relationship problems. They also unlock the door and show up inside my home- non stop. One time I was laying in bed naked and they opened door and let 5 other men in to "fix my back door". This situation is increasing my anxiety 10 fold. We pay a lot of rent each month- and I don't feel that I deserve this. My husband didn't have a good relationship with his parents; so he likes to think that our landlords are. He is almost 40 years old- I just don't understand why none of this bothers him. Everyday I stay here my anxiety gets worse. I don't know what else to do. I have some k pins on the way. They can't get here fast enough. Sorry for ranting. I just had to get this off my chest. My husband says I'm just complaining. I just need to know would this situation bother anyone else or am I being unreasonable? Also is Kpin good for social anxiety? TIA.

@MEOWWWW I think the situation with your landlords would cause anxiety in anyone! I live in the country and I just cant imagine what that would be like...I dont like it.  I cant imagine it changing unless your husband puts his foot down with them. Is he worried it will offend them  to insist on your privacy?

My adult son used to have really bad social anxiety when he was a teenager. At the time, he would rather go without than have to speak to a cashier at a store or etc. Turns out his was more of a confidence issue. 

Good luck to you!  I hope it works itself out.

Thank you girlgerms for your response. My husband doesn't see it as a problem; despite me expressing it daily. He just says " it could be worse" or that I'm just complaining. I confronted them and told them to back off and stop invading my privacy or that my family and I were moving. That just made it even worse. They are now trying to smother us with friendliness so we don't move. But they are invading our privacy even more. The lack of confidence makes sense. I used to not be so anxious. On top of this situation- I have experienced many changes the past two years. I went from a highly independent career woman, had my own home, lived alone, and just graduated college. To having to give all of it up. I had to stop working due to a difficult pregnancy. I had to give up my home and all of my furniture so I could move here. My landlords refused to remove any of their furniture from here. I gained 125 pounds during prgancy. Although I have lost 75 pounds of it- I am still 65 pounds heavier than I was pregnancy. I need to work on becoming my own person again and get out of this living situation. Thank you for listening. It feels some good to be understood! ❤
