Looking back I have probably had General Anxiety Disorder most of my life but it has gotten worse this past year. I feel stuck in my own head. It started with me just worrying about everything. Everything made me worried. I wasn't worried 24/7 but little things would trigger it. Lately though, it is much worse. I cry for no apparent reason. The littlest things cause me to have an attack. It feels like my chest is heavy and no matter what I do I can'[t escape the feeling of either being worried or sad. Sometimes it happens for no reason at all and I just really want it all to stop. Just now I watched a movie which turned out to be sad and now I'm back in another wallowy mood. My attacks arent what I would say typical. They aren't the hyperventilating thing I hear about a lot. I just get either really sad or really angry. A lot of times this makes me lash out. I feel like anxiety is ruining my life and I can't escape it. I just want it to stop.
