Anxiety is feeling as if everything is targeted at you, who you are, or you or your situation's safety even though you know it's not; having spiraling disorganized thoughts you know are completely illogical and even you yourself don't believe them, but they still voice themselves and can't be silenced to the point you can't even hide in your mind due to the nonstop irrational storm there. It's basically being in a constant argument with yourself

Tiny rant lol I'm not upset just saying what it feels like n it sucks frick

That sounds so familiar. I never considered a lot of that to be anxiety. I just considered it the Devil trying to make me do something stupid and crazy. Like go to the store to get a dvd you really want, and a voice in your head tells you to throw it out the window on the highway. I just learned to ignore it and it's crazy illogical thoughts. It can mess with your mind if you dwell on it after it happens. Not giving it a second thought is what I struggle with.

yeah im sure apart of it is that, but i've been clinically diagnosed with anxiety, I just really don't know what to do about it since i don't believe in psychological medications unless you literally can't function without them

I am on anxiety medications and they really help. Once you get the right psychologist by asking around, like ask your main doctor if you trust them for some recommendations to choose from. Then look on the hospital's site for intros to them. A lot of hospitals do that. I don't really know why you don't believe in them. Anxiety is just as much a physical disorder as athsma and medicine can help. I know you don't want medications for it but I don't really understand why.

Because for physical issues, medications alter chemicals in your body to fight them

But for mental issues, medications alter your personality and who you are in order to cause relief 

I think they can be used for benefits on some people so I'm not thinking they're evil or anything, I just really don't want to have to give up my state of mind currently to function normally

Not to mention I'm going to need to live off of as little money as possible in the future and being on meds would be rather costly

They don't alter your personality and who you are. They alter chemicals in your brain so that they are closer to what they were suppose to be so that you have relief. My personality never changed and I was who I was and still am. They don't alter your personality. Your thinking of Alcohol and recreational drugs. Psych drugs don't alter your personality.

I recommend seeing if you can get hooked up with a counselor it might help you if you feel it necessary 

You wouldn't be cured, but they can help you learn how to cope

Ah I see, but it's always good to take whatever advice you can if it can help bring you back down to a comfortable level

I'm really sorry you have that stuff no one deserves going through things like that

That's true

But it's good to know that there is someone out there that shows concern for me
even if we don't face the exact same problems, I'd still feel concern for you too

Aww that means a lot ;;

I believe you'll be able to conquer it, there will be good times and there will be bad times, but in the end, pulling through it is more than worth it
