Does anyone else feel this way?
Hi all I am new to this section of the board, but wanted to ask if anyone feels what I am feeling. Well I know that I have Social and General Anxiety disorder, so that may contribute to it, but I do think I am OCD about this one issue. O.k. here it is. I do not like to be alone after dark. I make my husband stay home if my mother can not stay home with me when he is gone. I am constantly thinking that someone is going to break in and rape and murder me. When I have stayed by myself, and have heard a sound, I freak out and start getting really panicy! I always think the worst is outside and that it want to get me. I will not open the door after dark or during the day time if I don't recgonize them. I don't care if they just want to ask a question, I assume they want to harm me whether or not they are male or female. This drives my husband crazy, because he thinks that I don't trust the world today, and he is some what right. I watch the news you really do have to be careful. Also if I am wathcing a movie where some is being tortured badly I start to get a paniac attack. I am so tired of having these feelings. Life is stressful enough without having to worry about who's gonna get me. I have been on paxil, zoloft, and even prosaic in the past, and nothing has ever worked. I really just want to beat this stupid thing. Does anyone have any suggestions. I know I am tired of it, and it drives my poor hubby absolutely crazy. I am an adult in my mid 20's and have been like this ever since I can remember. Any suggestions would be great. Thanks so much and have a great day.
