Ive been suffering from mildish anxiety since i was young now. It all started when the 9/11 attacks happened. and since then i have been terrified of planes. Months and months after the 9/11 attacks i barly slept. Whenever i heard a plane going across id become very anxious and paniky, sometimes it would lead into an attack. I had to watch the plane's go past until they were out of sight and i couldnt hear them anymore. But this didnt last forever, it was hard to get though but i did it. Now i just get very anxious around big groups of people and in social situations. I cant talk to people, i feel as if im planning what to say rather than listening to what other people are saying, and constantly thinking that everyone is talking about me and thinking about me. What helps me the most with this is the work i do, im training to be a mental health nurse, so i spend allot of time with people who suffer from all types of illness included anxiety and depression, and since ive been doing this i can understand and control it allot more. I think its a terrible thing, and i feel so bad for anyone who suffers with it, but it can be beat, ive seen it allot.
