A seeker of knowledge. One that I don't have a definition for but if i had to try describe it, it would be the kind of knowledge that alot of people seem to fear to accept because it breaks with social conveniences, it challenges it.

Not to much surprise, part of the triggers of my anxiety have to do with family. While I'm alone in the house, there is somewhat more peace and I'm able to enjoy some quiet me time. As soon as the others come in, the peace goes out the window. My mother, whether knowingly or not, likes to run her mouth, saying things that are both hurtful and untrue. Every time she loses her temper she starts saying how she's so tired and the only one doing anything in the family. Funny thing especially since she's not the one who puts gas in the car, is buying the groceries, paying for car repairs, putting debts up to date, etc. Its really frustrating because it feels like when I was a kid trying to impress my parents. I worked hard but it was never enough for them and they always found something to complain about. Now its the same only with money. And I'm trying the best I can but I can really only go so far with a lousy minimum wage part time job.
Woah for a second there I thought i'd written that post.

I'm in a similar position where family values, etc, threaten to impede my own development & happiness. Though a job & my own place will hopefully rectify that.

So I recommend to you to put unpleasant & unhappy people behind you, if they're getting you down this much. Move on & if that's too difficult you don't have to move too far or visit in long stretches (make the occasional visit).

What's this about being asexual!?

Current job doesn't pay enough to make rent possible (part time) though I do want to move out, just that I need the job first.

The asexual thing is a bit of a possible future problem due to being in a posible, sexually expected, relationship

Hopefully, this recent time of anxiety will subside soon. It seems that lately the episodes are becoming a bit more frequent. I don't have a full blown panic attack all the time but the triggers are becoming more common. Even when alone, I seem to be on edge.

Currently Im looking for ways to distract myself in hopes of preventing the triggers.

I can relate. Right now I'm distracting myself from the critical voices. They make it hard to trust people.

Right now I'm hearing the voice of Lauren, this girl I went to school with. She was really bossy and domineering. She liked to lecture me like I'm a child.

Right now she's telling me I'm African American and should be proud of it. She's also saying I'm part of the African American community. I'm not African American, I'm black American. And I'm not part of any community. She is just really bossy. Makes me intimidated by people.

So I must give people the benefit of the doubt and distract myself from the voices.

I guess that feeling anxious is going longer than what I would have hoped for. Even at work I can't be at ease. I can't stand the arrogance and incompetence of the supervisors.

I'm sorry to hear that. So studying anxiety didn't help?

I wouldn't say it hasn't, just that I haven't been able to do it fast enough in order to produce a set of countermeasures that can help get by better.

You're making an honest attempt to understand it, so I'd say that is a good start to a healthier, less anxiety prone future for you. Any new insights?
