    disappointed in myself !
    lovenj41 posted:
    Hi my name is Trisha, I feel so disappointed in myself lately because I have been out of work for a long time and I am trying so hard now to get a job. So I applied for this job and they called back and left a message, I felt a anxiety attack coming on and a panic attack but I took a deep breathe and called them back anyway. Ok now the answering machine comes on I never liked talking on one..but anyway I started leaving a message then all of a sudden I felt a real hot flash hit me in the face I was so nervious I wasn't making sence at the end, so I wind up hanging up I felt so stupid and started crying asking my self when is this gonna stop..My boyfriend that has been helping me out told me that he why am I being so hard on myself ...but I don't think he understands what I am going through when I am having a anxiety is ruining my life! Did anyone ever go through something like this?

    Oh yes. When I was just out of high school and my parents were nagging me about getting a job, I would say I was getting applications, and I would, but I never filled them.
    I felt that way when i got the job i'm in now. I really didn't want to answer their call haha. I was very anxious from the call up to the interview, but afterword I felt really good.

    Maybe you can call them back and say your phone died or got disconnected?


    My boyfriend does the same thing, doesn't know why i'm hard on myself, or why i take all the stressers to the extreme.
    He doesn't quite understand that we don't want to take them to the extreme, that's just how they feel with us.

    Hi Cjack thank for the reply, I do want to get a job and get out of the situation I am in right now. I have low self-asteem and I am struggling so much and don't know what else to do.
    I did call them back and left a brief message and still no call back so I feel like a real idiot but still looking so hoping to hear from someone and get through this.
    My boyfriend is being real unpatient with me and I understand, and when I try to explain , he won't let me finish because he don't like what he is hearing..and he gets now we are having problems and maybe breaking up....he explained to me he wants me to get out there and be around people but he don't understand its the hardest thing for me but i wind up doing it anyway, even going to parties I have a hard time..I really feel like passing out or throwing up I get so nervious but I go anyway. Thanks again , let me know how your doing

    I hope you get a call back I really do.
    And my boyfriend is the same way he just doesnn't really get it. He tries to tell me to just get over it which is the last thing I want to hear. I, also, HATE going to parties or out to eat or anything. I like being at home, on my couch watching a movie. He's getting to be a little more understanding now, but we have had our fair share of fights and almost break ups. Maybe you should have him read an article or something?

    And as for me I am from the midwest and I just got back from the keys in florida so I had a really really rough week. I've never been so far from home (about 22 hours away! ) I'm home now but I feel weak because I barely ate anything while we were there. I'm kind of hoping this trip makes my anxiety a little easier, like if I can go that far then going to the store should be a breese..hopefully lol.
