Only: air; and i

Catch me, as i fall: say you're here; and it's all over now.. i'm so tired of fear- like open doors, you give me all but the reason why.

If only for a day; although you're still with me- a breeze will help clear: speaking, to the atmosphere.. No one's here and i fall into myself (trapped by these childish reasoning's).

Hiding behind the mask- the betrayer, this air around me.. Never was; never will ...

Wrong Town

A bit over two years ago, I moved to a small town in a regionally distant area from the city I grew up in. At first I thought people here wouldn't be so unpleasant to interact with. Was I wrong. Not being a local, I am consistently scrutinized for any action I make, word I utter or expression I make. And news really does travel faster in a town in contrast to the vast, impersonal ...

Want to go to college and succeed, but I'm scared?

Hi... Um, so I'm new to this, but I really want some thoughts from others who may have similar issues.

To start, I have a loving husband at home so I feel like I should be alright with moving forward. I stay at home and talk to basically no one unless he's with me. If he goes, I go. If he stays, I stay. I'm terrified of being alone, or of being with people that ...

I can go to places that I've been before or places where there will be someone I know but can't go anywhere outside of that. Sometimes I ...

Crossing Streets/Open Spaces

Hi all,
I am new to this forum but grateful that it is somewhere to get info. Would appreciate any insight. I have been doing research/reading. Not sure if I have general anxiety or a specific phobia. I have been a developing agoraphobia for years now but it seems to be getting worse. My problem is that I get very anxious when crossing streets or open spaces.

Fear of Doctors Exam

I am a 40 male and I have developed an irrational fear of being seen by any person within the medical industry. Each year I go to my physical (mandatory for work) my hear rate and pulse jump to levels that cause alarm.
When I was a child (late 70's- early 80's) I remember going in for physicals and a random nurse would stick her head in the exam room and say "strip to your ...
