Am I the only one???

Does anyone else get anxious for no good reason? As though my body is warning me of some impending (or concurrent) event that my head has yet to wrap itself around. It's not like an anxiety ATTACK perse...just a sort of nervousness that has no explanation. Maybe this is unique to me but it still sucks.

Hormones, strange psyche, whatever the crap you call it, yes. There is no logical reason.

Have you ever had an anxiety attack?

It happens to me, sometimes I feel like I would if I were about to sing in front of a group of people or about to go over the big hill on a roller coaster, but for no reason at all. Like major butterflies in my stomach. I used to think it was a warning, but now I know it's just anxiety.

Michael said...

Yes! And it's similar to butterflies in my stomach- but not exactly. More of a knot in my stomach.

It manifests itself differently at different times. And actually, the physical symptoms are worse when I don't really have anything to be anxious about. When I know what I need to do and I can either work on it or knowingly procrastinate it's not so bad. It's when I have a generally stressful job or life but Ive got everything done that it's the worst.

I've got an appointment with a psychiatrist next month- and hopefully I can figure out some ways to lessen that and deal with other stuff (even if it's medication)

Not as often as I used to, but I just had one about a week ago. After some therapy, I am better at determining whether or not the anxiety is warning me, begging me to stop and look around me or just wanting me to get my butt in gear and get moving on a decision.

I'm just suddenly unable to focus. Everything seems overwhelming. It's usually brought on by the presence of statues or manequins. You heard right folks, since I was an infant, it's called automonophobia.

Hey KaRyn, so I'm no good at emailing, but Bruce Finch told me you had a blog, and I found it thanks to myspace, I tried to add you as a friend, but keep getting some stupid error message. I hope you are loving Korea, wish you would come back. Heidi does a good job, but it isn't the same without your sense of humor. I hope all is well, don't worry about the anxious thing, we all feel it at one time or another.
