I'm 17 years old, I think I've always been a little antsy, but this year it seems to be at its worst point, while progessively worsening. My mind is constantly flooding with negative thoughts, all the time. I am generally pessimistic and have a negative outlook on everything. I don't think its depression though, i have crazy anxiety and things and when i start to get impatient or nervous it feels like my chest is a million pounds, my stomach is in knots, and my throat feels like its closing up. Often random meaningless thoughts will repeat in my head even when they have no importance. Sometimes I take like three baths a day because I always feel like I need one (No I am not dirty i am in fact very clean) but i always feel the need to take a bath. For instance, my boyfriend doesnt call me an hour after I call him, i start t oget very anxious and upset, and its not like im a creepy clinger girlfriend, its like i really cant stand the unknown.. it's weird. I went through a phase when I always thought there was something wrong with me, i cant even count how many diseases I've thought i had over one tiny little symptom. Sometimes I do get very depressed, but not constantly, so i dont think im just depressed. And finally. something seems to block me from telling my feelings to my boyfriend and im very closed off and i can see it affecting my relationships with everyone around me. I'm sure theres a bunch of other things going on that I just can;t remember right now, sorry for such a long post, but this problem has been going on for a while and i can see it getting worse. Am i supposed to go to a psychiatrist or what? Im only 17 i have no idea how to get help for any of this. Or am I just crazy? I don't realy feel like randomly coming up to my mother and saying "hey mom i think im neurotic call the doctor" I just have no idea what to do, someone please help me :( i think im crazy :(Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
