Anxiety.

Who has it?  How bad is it? 

For the past year I feel that my anxiety has been out of control and I think I may need to see the doctor about it.

I think I may have social anxiety  - lately just lately I have been getting really flusttered in places with crowds. I talked to my DH about it and he has noticed it to. I have never in my life experience anything like it, its only happened a few times but it makes my heart race and makes me shakey. My mom said my dad might have had it... I dunno I havent seen a Dr to discuss my symptoms, but I think I may need to aswell

 Is it an option for you to just quit this job? The stress is really not good for you, especially if you are feeling what you described.

Have you had any panic attacks?  Are you depressed?

I have been on Paxil for almost 10 years due to anxiety and depression.  I did my best to deal with it (waited for years) and when I could no longer function, I went to a psychologist.

Getting on medication was one of the best decisions I ever made.  Feel free to drop me a line if you have any questions!

Many times my anxiety comes out of no where.  I could be just driving to the store and WHAM it hits me.  There been a couple of times that I've woken up in mid attack, those have been the worst because it takes me a bit to figure out whats going on.

Yeah it is an option - I work more for the benefits than money... DH's insurance SUCKS! I have thought about quitting and opening up my own child lead pre-school. The thing its I really like the work. I love everything about international trade, if the managers weren't such assholes to people it would be a different story.

God, how scary! It's not like you can predict when it'll happen. Ten cuidado cuando manejes.
