OMG: I have so much anxiety about nothing. Yet all I want to do is break down crying all the time.

  2. Have you tried to actual cry for a while? It can work for some people if you let your emotion out.

    1. Not OP, but I am a male and it's been the same for me. It's not a weak part of you.. not much different than saying you got the flu - not under your control.. and the more you try to control it the worse it will be.

    1. This has nothing to do with being at waterloo. I have awesome friends who would probably be pretty supportive, but its so hard to explain what I feel. It's more like this sense of dread in life that I am just doing everything wrong. It's hard to get unless you have the feeling. Things that might only derail you in life can cause a full on anxiety attack in me.

    1. Wow @7a that's exactly how my anxiety is.. A small thing that most people could brush off, I will have an anxiety attack over. They can be big or small depending on the situation... Example: prof told me another student wasn't trying to argue with me when we were giving opinions in class... I start tearing up, sweating, shaking, can't get it out of my head for the rest of the lecture... Just trying not to cry. Then thinking about it for days or even weeks. Augh. It's so consuming. And that's one small thing that happened.. I dunno why I just get so emotional!
      None the less exams.... OMFGGGWBWH my anxiety over them is through the roof even with AccessAbility services...

  7. It's alright really. Just let it out, cry it out. I do it often. Start a blog and anonymously rant it all out. A lot of people, I think, are the same. Crying can help sometimes.

  8. It's because you've invited a malicious entity in your life from the 10th plane of torment. This happened to me once, the best route to go is through charged aquamarine crystals (negative/+ energy counteracts the calcified pineal glands) and jasmine incense along with burning some cedar wood. In no time you'll be feeling better and the entity will be banished back into their dimension. Just use the proper abrahamic name when communicating with it and you'll be fine. Also make sure to always remain within your circle of salt.

  11. I had social anxiety for 7 years and I was able to recover after seeing a counselor for 2 years. I highly recommend you to make an appointment with counselling services because my counselor was able to help me get my life back. If I hadn't taken this step, my life would still be crippling with anxiety.

  12. Talk to people, your parents or anyone you trust or are a bit close to. It might feel like your problems are too little compared to their problems and you don't wanna bother them, but they do really care and would appreciate you placing trust in them.

    Write a blog/diary. Venting helps.

    If you really wanna cry, watch an emotional movie.. that way your body has the satisfaction of shedding tears and you feel like your problems are none compared to the situation portrayed in the movie. Things could be worse. (One such movie would be Remember Me (2010))

    I've been there, but it's more like a phase for me.

  13. *virtual hug* I feel that way too. I found out that not venting it in front of others is a good thing, tears are sacred. However it has given me an 'emotionally strong person' rep that I dare not cry in front of anyone. Sigh. Also, I have been feeling blue for no reason at all and avoiding all human company on campus lately. When I'm with people I want to be alone, when I am alone I want to be with people. What's wrong with me?

  14. So proud of the uwaterloo community for being so supportive on this post. When i saw "18 comments" I am like "oh jeeze people are ripping this poor soul to shreds" I happily ate my words when EVERY SINGLE comment was nice and supportive. To OP, i also feel the same a lot of the time. Being a young person is very difficult; you are trying to figure out who you are as a person. Being in school just adds to that. University is a highly stressful and pressure filled environment and when you pair that will self-discovery and anxiety the result can be unbearable. Just know that it is completely normal to feel this way and having a good cry or a scream into the pillow can work wonders. Also, don't be afraid to reach out to peers and supports, you may be surprised at how responsive and helpful people are. All the best OP.
