anxiety and me..perfectionists
August 26, 2001

I have loads of it just piling on top of me and for what? Is there pressure? Mostly just what i put on myself. Im living at home and going to school full-time and working full-time...my parents just said that i didnt even have to work if I didnt want to. Im a crazy woman, thinking of my future and which way i should go next. There are just so many choices...i cant choose what color underwear i should wear in the morning and I have to decide do I want to live here or at the beach with my friends and boyfriend (i want to live at the beach). Do I stick out two more quarters of school even if I already have my bachelors and know enough in these computer programs to get a job(i enjoy school and im doing well in it for once in my life..? I want to be making money and starting my life and I feel like im wasting time in school and stalling. People have so many real problems in this world and Im worrying about how i measure up to others constantly...yeah sure, worry about making yourself happy...but how? So much talk about making yourself happy, being happy with who u are but how...how..how. Am I pretty enough...am i smart enough...am i succesful enough...these are all questions that go through my head on a second by second basis.

My therapist thinks i have anxiety/Depression and ADD. She wants me to go on welbutin. Im medication a phobic because of bad experiences on trying them out before. So now im worried about my health and whether or not it would be worth going on medication or if talking it out is enough.

I lost 10 pounds now that school started back because im always on the run and have no time to eat and i think im going through a phasse of depression again...no motivation.

Of all this rambling...what i really want to do is vent. I am starting to get in touch with my feelings again which is good. But im just confused and lost now. Sometimes I have social anxiety around others...i have a inferiority complex...

Is it possible to not worry...Is there a way to stop this? Its definitely inherited through my family...they all worry too much...but can i train my brain to stop????

I have the exact same issues as you, I believe. I have been reading Gary Zukav's Seat of the Soul and it has been helping me do some attitudinal and persepective changes in a short time.

Hi, I am 30 and have had similar thoughts that at the time, just wouldn't go away. I found a wonderful book that has a wealth of information in it. While reading through the book I highlighted what pertained to me and reference it quite often. Not everything you read really truly pertains to a particular situation in YOUR life. "The New American Spirituality" by Elizabeth Lesser is the name if you want to check it out and see if you find anything in there that jumps out at you.
