Hello everyone.

Since 9th grade I have had an extreme problem with worrying. I get myself overly worried about everything, you name it, Im worried about it. The smallest things I over analyze and I pick and pick until I have myself worrying about it. I don't know why I do this, but I do. I worry about everything all the time even when I really shouldn't. What's worse is, I actually make myself physically sick. Ill get nervous.. worried.. upset.. and all of a sudden my stomach will start to ache really bad. I usually end up giving myself diarrhea and a headache. This happens sometimes almost every day. Sometimes now I dont even realize it. I just begin to feel sick and then I realize why. It's horrible. I have myself feeling bad most of the time and I dont know why this could be, or how I keep doing it to myself..

does anyone know why this could be, or why I do this to myself? why do i make myself sick all of the time? why do i worry so much when i know i shouldnt? its horrible..

Thanks!

Hi Andtolove,

I think it's good that you recognize your anxiety and want to get some help. I did a little search and found a couple of links:

We do have a board that deals with anxiety also:

You may want to bring your concerns to your doctor to make sure everything is okay physically too.
