You guys are therapeutic, you know that? Ever since high school I've been dealing with stress, the stress gave me headaches and I started taking ibuprofen to remedy it. Here I am in college, the headaches get worse and worse. My Mom speculated I had high anxiety and suggested medication to increase my serotonin levels. Only today did my request for medication get fulfilled. But I can't use it until tomorrow morning, I'm crossing my fingers for this to work. Shortly after getting back from the doctor's office I went to my next class. I already had a headache; worst part is I was in a class with the most annoying kid in the school. When he wore on my nerves I couldn't hold back and I snapped at him. The teacher knew about my anxiety issues and told me to wait out in the hall. I just stared at my reflection and tried to think about irrelevant things like web-comics and video games. When class ended I returned to my apartment. A strong feeling of despair hit me like a ton of bricks; I curled up on the recliner and I rocked back and forth crying for ten minutes straight. I hid my face in my hands and started to hyperventilate. I think I had a panic attack for the first time in my life; the despair lasted for hours. I find myself a lot happier after posting on this forum. I think I'd go crazy if I didn't have outlets like this. I'll be taking pills for anxiety in the morning, I hope it helps.

I take Ginger Root & mix Wheat Germ in my coffee for my headaches.
For those really bad migraines, Chicken & Rice.

My ADHD & Asperger's has always given me bad anxiety.

Have you ever been tested for either of these?

I've known people who suffered from social anxiety disorders and sometimes had panic attacks that felt like an heart attack. Obviously they're under treatment for it now and the medication seems to help.

I used to have absolutely horrendous, crippling anxiety attacks. They started in high school, where I basically threw up and became uncontrollably nervous every single morning for about 5 years straight. This continued when I attempted to go to college, ultimately leading to me dropping out. I hated the way I looked (still do to an extent) and I was consumed by a ridiculous paranoia that everyone was always watching me, thought I was a freak and that if I stayed in certain places and around certain people, then something bad would happen. It even got to the point where I would hide under my bed if anyone even so much as knocked on the front door. I became utterly reclusive for nearly two years.

I know you have Asperger's syndrome AJ, so I know that what I went through and sometimes things that happen to me now are triggered for totally different reasons. But, from an anxiety point of view I know where you are coming from. One of the worst times I can remember was going to a career expo at Manchester airport and I freaked out big time. I was bothered by the lighting (being too bright), felt everyone was staring at me, I felt too hot and itchy. I just wanted to be swallowed by a hole in the ground. Because other people were with me, I had to try and soldier on and was embarrassed trying to explain why I felt I needed to leave. Eventually, I lost my temper and fled. It was only when I met my first girlfriend and actually stopped taking ant-depressants, that I decided to take risks and not be so bothered about situations and society as a whole. I wanted to impress this chick, so I was forced to come out of my shell. If I were you, I'd just try getting out for walks. Don't start sheltering yourself in fear of becoming anxious when out somewhere. Perhaps go somewhere that you know will be quiet and try and strike up a conversation with a stranger. This helps with confidence and with being relaxed and comfortable around others. It's all about taking action, but taking baby steps towards medicating the bigger problem.

So do I, friend.

You're not alone with this.

The world can be an incredibly cruel and unforgiving place for people like us. Trust me, I've been through similar crap and I definitley know how spirit crushing it can be. Do you have anyone in your area that you trust that can help you? If so, it would be wise to vent your frustrations with them. It always helps.

It's great you're getting on medication.  I'm on anti-anxiety medication myself, and it made a HUGE difference in my quality of life.  Remember that although the medication will help a little bit initially, it takes a month of so for it to build up in your system for you to get the full effect.  It is truly joyous feeling those symptoms cut by 30%, 60%, and finally gone completely   TeddyR

  That's good advice. I've got major anxiety problems and OCD and taking baby steps to get out of my owm head helped me alot. Medication helps too. As does execise. For me as it turns out meds, exercise and getting out of my head, away from my anxious thoughs, is a good combination. I'm taking anti-anxiety meds after being of them for a few months, with the doctor's approval, because they are just too useful to refuse. Maybe some day I'll be able to get by without them but for now, I'm including them in my anti-anxiety war chest.

  Glad you can chill when you're hear. I feel the same way and I know Trevor has posted  the same. I'm guessing there are others who feel the same. Discussing something you love with non-judgemental like minds is a wonderful thing isn't it? If you can meet people on line you are comfortable with then maybe you can meet people in real life too. Another thing that helped me was when I finally started to meet nerds and geeks like me. I come from a background which fromwned on my geeky ways but once I met other people who shared some of the interests and values that I did, life became not only easier, but more enjoyable.

  Good luck AJ!

If I were talking about a movie it wouldn't be in "Off Topic Discussion". Also, I would have put a capital "A" in "anxiety". Sometimes I mark movies with years but that's only if the movie had a remake. I've never seen the movie "High Anxiety" but if it's Brook's I bet I'll love it.
