    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going?

    Is it just stress or anxiety
    SJB02 posted:
    I get this overwhelming feeling somethimes normally caused by changes that I have no control over. I also have this ongoing thought when my boss and co-worker are in a room togther with the door closed that they are taliking about me. I seem to always have this feeling that people are plotting against me or talking behind my back, like out to get me. I know this is probably not the case but I get an extremly overwhelming feeling where I cant breathe, chest hurts and really paranoied. I then start thinking that people are talking about me. What the heck is this and how do I make these feeling go away.

    It could be anxiety. I start to feel like people are staring at me or talking or even laughing at me when I have a panic attack. I don't really get the paranoia when someones out to get me though. You could have what I have an adjustment disorder. I hate change. I like to sleep in my bed, I hate staying the night somewhere else. I had a panic attack after I redecorated my room and got all this new furnature and a new bed.
