  • how do you cope?

    Hi, I've just joined this site today. I have browsed around peoples answers and questions and would like to ask one of my own.

    I was a very active, outgoing, never out of the action person before anxiety struck. I've always had problems with phobias i.e health, sickness but managed it well.
    I have a gambling addiction which I was also able to manage. Due to my severe anxiety (as said by a doctor) I am unable to work and do day-to-day activities. I am as close to housebound as it gets. Also as you can imagine I am unable to fund such gambling addiction.
    I have been placed on Citalopram 30mg which has helped with the anxiety while at home but almost useless in the real world. I have split up with my girlfriend as I can't do anything with her, I could only just about have sex without having my brain spun around the room! Honestly, it would just be comforting knowing someone has been in my situation and come out the other side as I cant see a light at the end of the tunnel.
  • Pain relieves my anxiety. Help!

    When my anxiety starts becoming overwhelming the only thing I find that causes instant relief is hurting myself. I can't make myself stop and it's getting to a point where I am buying plasters like people buy cigarettes. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
  • stress and anxiety

    does stress intensify your anxiety?
  • Tongue Picking Problem

    I'm not sure if I have anxiety or ocd but am very skeptical that I do. I have an odd problem with picking/pulling off taste buds. Ive had this problem for as long as I can remember, i get so into it I dont even notice when I do it until my tongue is missing chunks and my fingers are bloody. Its so disgusting, unsanitary, painful, and just weird. I dont know whats wrong with me and i dont know how to stop.
