How do I know if I actually have severe anxiety or not? here are some problems that I have been dealing with. -I cant be in or around large groups of people. -I can't hold a conversation on the phone, let alone answer it if it's someone I don't know, especially if it's a phone interview for a job. -I struggle showing up to work (causing me to quit automatically) without thinking im going to mess something up or make someone upset. -I'm too much of a people pleaser and don't want to make anyone mad or else I get anxious. -I can't sleep at night without waking up feeling like I'm choking on something (been going on for years now) that's only a few things I have that's going on. I dont know where to go to/how to ask for help.

      Social anxiety most definitely. Counselor or a therapist will definitely help.

      Sounds like anxiety with a bit of agoraphobia. A psychiatrist is good if you want medication, but if you need to talk to someone you'll want a therapist. As someone who suffered for 30 plus years, I promise it gets better. ❤️

      Definitely anxiety, especially involving socializing. If it is affecting your daily life it is severe, so the fact that it is preventing you from keeping a job is concerning. Seeking out a professional is definitely the best way to go. But the last one about waking up choking is a little more odd and could be something else. Have you looked into sleep apnea?

      A psychiatrist might be best. Sounds like you might have some social anxiety as well. If you need someone to vent or just talk to, feel free to message me
