The Results of Your Anxiety Quiz
Info from (NIMH)
Based upon your responses to this anxiety screening measure, it appears that you may be suffering from moderate anxiety, symptoms that might typically qualify you for the diagnosis of an anxiety disorder. Sometimes people who feel such anxiety symptoms don’t realize that their body may be trying to tell them something. Look for patterns in your behavior, such as when and what circumstances under which you experience the symptoms you’ve described. For example, if it occurs prior to public speaking and your job requires a lot of presentations you may want to find ways to calm yourself before speaking or let others do some of the presentations.
You should not take this as a diagnosis of any sort, or a recommendation for treatment. However, it would be advisable and likely beneficial for you to seek further diagnosis from a trained mental health professional soon to rule out a possible anxiety disorder.

Hi, I feel like my story is too long so I’ll try to just give the main parts..
I’ve had moderate Social Anxiety Disorder since I was 5, and I could notice that something was definately wrong with me but I didn’t know what it was until grade 12. I’ve had a history of severe depression, with self-harming tendencies and suicidal thoughts since grade 11/12, and it has been off and on since. When I married my husband in 2012, things were very hard.. every time we’d fight, there was yelling, swearing, and many tears shed on my part. I’m a very sensitive soul, so I feel like that was part of my downfall.. After the first couple of years of marriage I developed Generalized Anxiety Disorder. For financial reasons we had to move away from our hometown and across the country for some better jobs. Things in our marriage only got worse and instead of being the comfort and support I so desperately needed, he continued to be emotionally and verbally abusive. I developed a bout of depression again, this one of which was the worst one yet. The emotional pain I felt after every fight was so unbearable I would cut myself in order to feel something else. My husband of course didn’t understand why I was doing this to myself, and so just made him angrier. I was in so much pain, I just wanted it all to stop, and I struggled over and over with the decision to end my life or not. Throughout my whole life, my parents have been there for me whenever I needed them. They provided so much love and support, and a strong Christian influence. They taught me about Jesus and His love for us. They had done so much for me, I just couldn’t end my life knowing that it would cause them pain. Not knowing how to deal with my illness, my husband came and told me he didn’t love me anymore and that he’d pay for a plane ticket for me to go back and live with my parents.. I was shocked. I meant every thing I had said at our wedding, and couldn’t believe he wanted to negate the “in sickness and in health” vows.. I didn’t want to be sick!
I stayed in the bedroom and cried for three days, completely devastated, not knowing what to do.. I then begged him not to give up on me and we tried to get help from a couple who were Christian friends of ours and who had been married longer than us. It seemed to help a bit. I started noticing my husband trying to not let his anger get the best of him, and choosing his words more carefully… we have moved again since then and are so close to getting our first house together after struggling for almost 7 years. I have tried some anxiety medications throughout the years, but haven’t found the right one.. My anxiety has developed into panic attacks, most of which happen at night. Sometimes my body feels weird, or i feel like im getting sick and Im afraid to go to sleep for fear of dying.. I don’t feel like I can go to my husband for comfort.. I realize now that comfort is not something he really does.. I am currently up, unable to sleep as I’m writing this. I take a sleeping pill every night and I wear earplugs to cancel out any distracting noises. My husband has gotten less abusive but is not completely cured.. I keep telling him that counselling would really help us, but he probably knows he might look like the bad guy in our situation. Not sure how much longer I can hold out hope for our marriage.. I’m less of a doormat and more angry and defensive.. he doesn’t like who I’ve become either, and he says I’m too negative all the time. I just feel like I’m broken, and I can’t trust him anymore. Some of my needs he has still never learned how to meet, and yet, refuses to get help..
Sorry this was still really long… guess I needed to vent some more..
Hello. I’ve been suffering for the last 3years with anxiety/depression. But I was masking all my feelings that I felt numb and ok. Five months ago I stop working because I finally had a meltdown. I no longer had control over my situation and I had a meltdown. I was getting abnormal sensations all over my body, and I had no idea what was going on. I seeked medical helpe to get an answer and after two months of testing they diagnosed with GAD (generalized anxiety disorder.) For several weeks neurologist thought I had MS because of my symptoms. Luckily that was ruled out. I was prescribed an antidepressant but after using it for a month I stoped. Almost two months have passed and I seem to be getting my anxiety symptoms back. I feel like I’m going crazy and no one understands. They suggest I go to the gym, read a book or to meditate. Ironacally their suggestions make me more angry because they make it seem that is that easy and that I need to get control of my thoughts. If it was that easy to solve no one who ever suffer from anxiety. During my darkest days I seekeed God and there were many moments I felt content and for minutes at peace, But they were short lived. Although there is no doubt in my mind that it’s God who I really need in my life.
