New to the group......not new to anxiety

Gary here.

I hope I am doing this right. Im new to this group and not used to talking about anxiety. I have recently lost my job and my anxiety is getting worse. I have always been stressed but I just learning that my level of stress probably isn't just stress. I don't really talk to anyone about how I feel but I have done some research and figured out I really need to get this under control. Whatever is wrong with me is not normal and I am having trouble coping. I have been having trouble leaving the house which has not been a problem before. I am not sure if I should be talking to my doctor? I don't really want to talk to anyone about it other then people who have experienced what I am going through. I am glad there are websites like this where I can talk openly and anonymously. I am not embarrssed or anything I just don't want people to know. my family knows something is up but they don't know how bad I have been feeling. Does anyone else get anxious just thinking about leaving the house? I don't even know why I am anxious I just always feel stressed.

This program looks interesting. has anyone had any success with it yet?

Fear of Anxiety itself

I can relate to this fear. I hate feeling stressed or anxious and I avoid things just to avoid the feeling but when i actually think about what I fear I think I am being silly. It is really frustrating.

Relationships and Anxiety

I do not talk to my family about my anxiety. I don't even know how I would bring it up.

jobs that are good for the anxiety prone

I recently lost my job. I need to get a new one.. I worked for Purolator. I found it really stressful . I don't know what job would be good for my anxiety. I am certain driving in the city every day is not . I also used to be a cook. I was actually really good at it but whenever there was a rush I just couldn't handle the pressure. I would shut down. unable to communicate properly which is a problem in a kitchen. Does anyone have any suggestions for things I could look into?

How to talk to loved ones

I think I need to talk to my family about this. I have been the rock of the household. toughing it out. lately I couldn't hide how I have been feeling. I want to talk to my wife about it but I don't want to scare her or make her worry about me. How do you talk to your family or loved ones about it. What is good to say and what should I avoid?


Thank you.

There always seems to be something holding me back

Finally my therapist convinced me to start getting out there more.... and now this. It feels like there is always something holding me back from getting better. Does anyone else feel this way?
