  • Best medication for social anxiety?

    I was wondering what the best medication for social anxiety for a sixteen year old would be? I have been on Zoloft before and it did not work too well.
  • Does anyone else struggle with anxiety making them feel like a horrible person?

    Does anyone else struggle with anxiety making them feel like a horrible person? I've noticed through talking with my therapist that anytime someone offers constructive criticism for instance or anytime my mom is even slightly irritated at me for some sort of behavior or something, it's like it overshadows everything else and all of a sudden I'm 100% awful and instead of it being this small thing my mom's talking to me about, it becomes this huge deal in my head like I'm just an all around bad person. I snap out of it eventually, but it takes a while and in that time I just feel worthless. I don't know if I can explain it better than that. I'm aware of it, but I also don't know how to prevent it.
  • Existential Anxiety

    I'm 20 and I've been having some hardcore existential anxiety, I always long for answers that cannot be answered. I always find myself overthinking? life in itself. I never used to have this problem until about a year or two ago but it's becoming much worse. It's anxiety that I feel I cannot escape from. I know I'm still young and what not but all I ever think about is is this all a simulation? If so who or what is behind it all? I never used to have anxieties but it all just kind of hit me at once and is quite overwhelming. No one I know my age has these same anxieties about life or their future. I always find myself thinking about how irrelevant the human race is and how we're all just specs of specs of a spec of dust. I can't stop questioning what this life is and how life itself even works. I feel like I can't live a normal life because of how intense my curiosity is about literally everything. I can't meditate because of how much shit is going on in my mind 24/7, I don't find yoga to be relaxing, therapy is quite pointless (I've seen atleast 4 different therapists/psychiatrists and none of them have helped me in the slightest) and I just feel like a lost cause. I've tried my best to explain my situation and I hope it made sense somewhat. I would love to talk with like minded people. Why am I feeling these feelings and thoughts so deeply to where it affects me physically and mentally?
  • I'm stuck

    Lately I've been feeling stuck, like I'm not improving. I'm not getting worse either. But it seems like I've been doing better. But I'm not sure if it's because I am getting better and the working on myself is actually doing something. Or I'm only feeling like I'm doing better because the main trigger for my anxiety and depression is momentarily gone. I just don't know what to do. The working on myself is expressing my emotions and feelings more, and trying to reach out to my friends. I've been figuring out what Happens during an attack and what helps. I know myself pretty well in that area. But I want to be able to do more then just coping with it. I want it to get less. I only have no idea how
  • Ringing of the ears

    So for the past day or so iv had a quiet but annoying ringing in my ear. Im only 19 and i started worrying whether it was tinnitus... is it just my anxiety making an appearance?
  • Why do I cry?

    I am not shore what is going on with me. My energy is low, I cry for no reason. Mood is changing like a traffic light. My sister tells me that I have depression and anxiety. I do not have some special problem, could this be some phase or she is right?
