Hello, I think I may have some kind of anxiety disorder since I get very nervous in certain situations. First, I cant seem to get into a relationship. I often have crushes and wish that I could date someone but when it gets serious like it could actually happen, I get so nervous I actually get sick. I get physical symptoms like nausea, headache, etc...its so annoying! Its like I want things to work out but I dont want to feel like this so I end up turning every guy away just to feel normal again.
Then, when I go out to dinner with friends or go out on vacation, I sometimes get this rapid anxious feeling where I again feel sick and cannot eat. It seems to happen mainly when I am in a new surrounding.
I am grateful that I am able to work, go to school, and have a lot of friends. I am happy with my life its just I feel like I wont ever be able to get attached to a boyfriend. For years I have just been avoiding the problem, since I am afraid to take medication. I do well in school and I am afraid that medication could alter my memory and cognitive abilities. Does anyone feel this way or have any advice? I am open to anything to please help if you can!!! Thanks so much!
