I have anxiety. I know I do, but I have never been to a real doctor. But it has controlled my life. I am only 19 now but it hit me in elementary school. But at that point I forced my mom to let me stay home from school for a week and then once I went back I didn't eat for a long time while at school. Then in high school my anxiety came back. I get super nervous and anxious and I don't know what to do about it. If I had to give a presentation during the day I wouldn't eat breakfast or lunch because I was afraid I would throw up during the presentation, when my anxiety kicks in I get super nervous and then vomit. I just don't know what to do anymore. I barely can eat two meals a day. When I brush my teeth I get sick to my stomach, I am fearful to go out with friends. And dating is out of the question because I am scared I am going to puke when out with anyone. Help? Anyone know of techniques to calm me down? Or can the doctor prescribe anything to help me?
