How to cure and heal severe anxiety

By Eren Mckay  
Filed under Relationship With God

Anxiety is a joy killer.
It’s what the enemy uses to try to get
all of us off track and put our minds
on useless temporary things.

But Jesus told us not to worry:

Matthew 6:34
Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.


God has a purpose and a plan for our lives. Our adversary is doing everything he can for us to put our eyes on the storm just as Peter looked at the storm and started to sink. If we take our eyes off of the Lord and start to focus on our circumstances, we will get distracted and waste the time that God has given us to accomplish His will through our lives. Scripture tells us:

Psalm 90:12
So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom.

If our days are spent worrying- we’re throwing away the time that the Lord has given us to fulfill His purpose through us. He has a purpose for us.
Do you believe that? Well you should- because He tells us that in Scripture!

Jeremiah 29:11
For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

You weren’t created to live far from the Lord. You need Him to do everything in life. It is through the faith in Him that He will accomplish all of His goals through you.
He will use you as a parent, as a daughter or son, as a friend. He will use you! Focus on Him and His will.
As Charles Stanley always says:
Obey God and leave the consequences up to Him.

Matthew 6:33
But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

This week I really felt the Holy Spirit talking to me about anxiety. So I started to search for sermons to listen to and found 2 excellent sermons. I really want to share them with you.

The first Bible study I listened to was from Foundations for Freedom. It’s a more in depth study about anxiety with lots of excellent biblical truths that will help you. To watch the video presentation about anxiety just click play on the video below or you can also view their anxiety study materials by clicking on this link.





The second one is right below here and you can just click the play button and listen to it. It’s only half an hour long and filled with truths that will set you free from anxiety. You won’t regret listening to this. I have listened to it many times.
If you ever feel anxious, just come back here and listen to it again and let God’s truth sink into your hearts until you are fully believing it all.
Please feel free to share your own thoughts on anxiety or ask for help if you need it in the comment section below.
Blessings to you,
Eren Mckay

    Hi Eren,

    Are you reading my mail again? I have been in a state of anxiety for several days (weeks now) and I know better. I know that I can trust the Lord and that He will get through every circumstance but…. I still worry, I still don’t have faith that I will make it through this particular set of problems. You see it is because I have my eyes on my problem and not on Jesus.

    Thank you Eren for posting this and reminding me that greater is He who is in me than he who is in the world.

    In Christ’s Love,
    Pete

    Hi Pete!
    I’m so glad this post helped you. We all need to be reminded of what we already know. It’s so easy for the enemy to throw a lie into our minds so we just need to always be attentive.
    It’s a constant battle. But the victory has already been given to us 2000 years ago on the cross.
    Blessings to you,
    Eren

    Hi Laurie!
    Thanks so much for stopping by ( and for the compliment on the video 😀 ). Remembering Scripture is what keeps me strong. Amazingly the Lord moved me to listen to these Bible studies right before my dad fainted in the middle of the street.
    So I know He was preparing my heart to just trust Him through it all.

    Blessings to you my friend ♥,
    Eren

  4. Eren Mckay  

    Hi Girish,
    So glad you commented even though you’ve been reading the blog for a while 😉 .
    Hope you come back more.
    Anxiety truly is a problem but listening to that sermon helped me to crush anxiety completely.
    All the best,
    Eren

  5. Laurie Neumann  

    Hi Eren,

    Great post. Jer. 29:11 is one of my all-time favorite verses. I also love Ps. 29:7 “My heart trusted in Him, and I am helped.”

    I love your video too!

  6. Girish Chandran  

    Hey Eren,
    This is incredible. I never thought before that cure for anxiety exists. I am anxious always but have never been into any of the medication. I like the way it is and I try to get more and more anxious about my future :D. However, I appreciate your efforts on nailing quote from the bible and posting it here.

    Regards,
    Girish Chandran

    PS: This is my first post in your blog, despite several days of following your posts. Looking forward. Ciao!

  7. Linda  

    Wonderful! Thank you so much Eren, just what I needed to hear. I’ve listened to the sermon twice this morning already. Muito Obrigada 🙂

    (I saw you live in Brazil, what a coincidence, I do too :))

  8. Eren Mckay  

    Hi Linda!
    So glad this sermon has helped you. I’m always listening to it also. I live in the state of Bahia in the city of Salvador. Very nice to meet you 🙂
    All the best,
    Eren

  9. Eren Mckay  

    I completely and absolutely agree with you. Faith kills fear. We need to make sure that our hearts always have faith and kill any kind of doubt. Doubt is not trusting. This is one of the reasons why I love spending time praying and being in His Presence.
    Thanks so much for your comment. Very insightful.
    Blessings,
    Eren

  10. Atmaja  

    When we surrender completely to God and know that whatever happens will be according to His plan anxiety is gone. Until we have total Faith and Trust in Him we have not fully surrendered.

    The more we resist the more likely we are not on our path and by choosing resistance over surrender we can create situations that we would not have to experience.

    This does not mean that nothing we would call bad will happen. Often that “bad” is part of God’s plan; yet, when we know it is we can peacefully accept it.

  11. Alaina Frederick  

    Hey Eren,

    I recently commented on Twitter about how it’s so easy to forget about God. To forget how He can help us through things. So often I’m in freak out mode and it’s hard to come back. I love Matthew 6:34 thanks for including that in the post – I really needed those words right now.

    Alaina

  12. Maria @ Conversations with Moms  

    Very well written. I loved your reference to the storm and Peter drowning. You are so right. Too many people, including myself focus on the storm which only leads to more stress.

  13. Eren Mckay  

    @Alaina – I agree. We need to always just take the time to be with Him and grow in Him so that we can be ready for whatever may come in our lives. Even Jesus took the time to pray and find the strength in our Father. That’s why devotional times are such a must to stay firm.

    @Maria – It’s so easy to get distracted by this world and take our eyes off of Him. I just literally talk to myself and tell my soul not to think about the circumstances. I also repeat promises and Bible verses during prayer time so that my mind can remain in His peace. My grandma used to have a beautiful saying on her wall:
    “7 days without prayer makes one weak.”
    I loved that saying.

    Blessings to you my friends ♥,
    Eren

  14. Eren Mckay  

    @Walter – Residing in the present is the only way to find true joy. As the words of Jesus- do not worry about tomorrow because each day has enough trouble of its own.
    Making sure that our hearts are aligned to Him each day is a constant thing. This is why devotionals and time to spend with Him every day is important.
    He fills us with His Presence, His Word and His truth each day.
    Yesterday’s bread is not today’s. Each day He has fresh manna from heaven for us if we will just open our eyes and our hearts.
    Thanks you for your insightful comment.
    Blessings,
    Eren

  15. Walter  

    When our mind goes back and forth the past and the future, it creates an illusion of fear. The result is that we feel anxious. Imagine, we worry of things non-existent.

    Tomorrow is an illusion, the past is also an illusion. You are here at the present moment. We have to wake up to where we are right now. The kingdom of God never reside in the past and the future. 🙂

  16. Ching Ya  

    ‘Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.'(1 Peter 5:7 ) — this verse has been a great comfort to me whenever I’m in anxiety. It’s so good to be reminded of His promise and love even though we’re in the lowest point of our lives. Thank you Eren for this lovely post. ^^

    Hi Ching Ya,
    Very true. I know that if my mind is anxious, it’s because some lie has come in. No matter how right my idea may seem if it’s not aligned to what Jesus says I just know that I’m off track. Anxiety is never a good thing. So we have to keep searching for Him and for His truth to enlighten our hearts. When this happens- it’s such a tremendous peace.
    My cousin had a recent AHA moment like this. The Lord showed her some things that took away all of her anxiety. She was so happy she talked to me for 3 hours on the cell phone from Rio.( I bet her bill will be high. ) But the great thing is that she is now free from those lies that bound her.
    Blessings to you Ching Ya,
    Eren Mckay

  18. Chris  

    This is a great Website. I’m almost 24 and about to have my first son. I’m struggling with Anxiety very much but know that the Lord is the only one that can truly help this problem. I have so much to be thankful for and be excited about but I let the enemy in and ruin my day/days. I need to keep my faith growing.

  19. Eren Mckay  

    Hi Chris 🙂 !
    I’m so happy that you found my blog. You can overcome the enemy of anxiety, my friend. Remember to always separate time to reflect upon the Word of the Lord. His word in our hearts is the sword that God has given us to fight this spiritual battle.

    And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:
    Ephesians 6:17

    This battle sometimes is harder to fight simply because it is not visible to the natural eye. It all happens in our minds and spirits. But it is no less real.
    The Lord wants to restore your spirit to one of peace. And He will. The closer you get to him the more peace He will give you.

    Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.
    John 14:27

    He has promised us that He will never give us more than what we can handle. Hold on to that promise.

    No temptation has seized you except what is common to man. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can stand up under it.
    I Corinthians 10:13

    He is with you and he wants to mature you. Stay in Him and you will find true peace.
    Love always,
    Eren

  20. Shayne  

    I’m having awful problems dealing with anxiety that it is affecting me personally and professionally. I won’t apply for other jobs that I’m qualified for because I get so anxious. I’m not enjoying life and just as the email says need a little help. You seem to know the solution and just ask that you pray for me.

  21. Eren Mckay  

    Hi Shayne,
    It took me a few days to approve and reply to your comment since I was having internet issues. (Anyone’s first comment is held for moderation.)

    Anxiety is just awful. It all starts with a wrong thought process that goes down the wrong road and can lead to getting paralyzed and hindered. I have been there before and I know how you feel.
    The sermon at the end of the post is one I listen to and helps keep me on track. You can listen to it anytime you feel that you need a reminder of the truth.

    Ultimately anxiety is putting our eyes on the circumstance instead of on the solution which is in God. He is a sovereign God and has not fallen off the throne nor will He ever fall off the throne despite what others may say.He has complete control of everything.

    He doesn’t promise us that nothing bad will happen to us. (As He states in that verse: In this world ye shall have tribulation…) He simply tells us that everything that happens to us is for a greater purpose(Romans 8:28). That all things work together for the good. Not all things are good. He has a reason for things. We may not see why but we either trust that He does or we rebel against His will. It’s really that simple.

    And when we stop fighting His purpose and just embrace and accept it – that is when His peace overflows in our hearts. Job did this. If you read the book of Job you will see how Job was tested and overcame. Many Christians today have circumstantial faith. In order to grow in our relationship with Him we need to go through the fire. The big question is will we remain faithful to Him through it all or will we rebel?

    I know this is a very deep answer to your question Shayne. But it is one that I can speak of as I have gone through many many fires. And I know that He is working in my heart and helping me to come to know Him more each day.
    My heart goes out to you and I will pray and believe that our Father will shine the light of His word into your heart an drive away all of those clouds.
    Love always in Christ ♥,
    Eren

  22. rafael;  

    hi eren may the lord bless you this is a great website and i feel that the lord had anointing youfor this, I can feel how the power of the holy spirit flow from every word that come out you heart,Iwould ask you to pray for me and my family we are going througth a process because of disobedience,but our God is a loving and mercifull God that will get us trhuoght it. thank you and God bless

  23. Rose  

    Thanks for sharing this! Your timing is impeccable. I needed to hear this right now. It is good to be reminded that God is always in control!

  24. Eren Mckay  

    Hi Rafael,
    I understand. Remember that God is not your accuser- the devil is the accuser… in fact that is what he is called in Scripture – the accuser of the brethren.
    If you have repented of this disobedience then you can stand on the faith that all things that come into your life will be for the ultimate good of you and your family. It may not seem so when we are going through the valley- through the shadow- through the deep pain- but do not look at those things. Do not put your eyes on the storm. Look up to your Creator who is far greater than anything in this world. He is stronger, mightier and more powerful than any evil force in this world. Put your trust in His mercy and loving kindness and He will open the doors and pull through for you.

    Hi Rose – Amen – so glad this helped you 🙂

    Blessings ♥,
    Eren

  25. Stephen  

    Thank you very much for putting this website up Eren!! I’m a new father experiencing feelings that I never felt before and had a potential health scare. The enemy was putting thoughts in my head that I don’t even want to speak into the air. I’ve been reading these versus and work daily to change my thought process. May God Bless you and your family 🙂 🙂

  26. Linus  

    am most grateful because i go through all the comments and am bless and strenghten. God reward you. thanks.

  27. Eren Mckay  

    @Stephen – I’m so glad that you are using the weapons that the Lord has given us to fight our enemy (the devil). He constantly tries to paralyze us with fear and worry by throwing lies into our minds. We need to be aware of this and fight it off with the power of the Word. The Word is our protection and our sword. May the Lord continue blessing you in His power.

    @Linus – Yes many times we find the deepest truths come out in the comment section 😉 . This post might also help you- especially what has already been written in the comment section of it:

  30. Chris  

    its nice to talk to u eren about anxiety and God 🙂

  31. sujata prakash  

    Hi Eren

    It’s such a blessing to see blogs like yours. I’ve been through anxiety and depression for a few months and have just come out of it PRAISE GOD. Now, it will take me more time to fully recover from the trauma, and to renew and transform my mind, but just to let other sufferers know – don’t give up hope ever! You will come out of it one day, maybe tomorrow itself! Hallelujia!

    I was listening to Pastor Berg’s sermon and one of his comments ring so true – suppose Jesus was to give us whatever we asked for but left us just the way we are. wow! 6 months ago I would not have asked for anything but ‘God, get me out of this now…NOW’ but now I say God, thank you so much for letting me go through this most awful experience so that I could know what a lifetime of wrong thinking led me to, and to trust You to get me out in your own time when I am restored and renewed.

    Affliction will not rise up in me a second time -Nehemiah 1:9. Say it and believe it.

    OK, so if anyone is interested, here are my observations on why anxiety/depression (I believe the 2 go together) happens.

    Perfectionism and wanting my own way
    Self pity when it doesn’t go my own way
    A focus on what’s missing in life rather than all I have in life
    FEAR – a natural consequence of all of the above
    Physical symptoms that lead to more anxiety that lead to more physical symptoms…
    Not eating or sleeping well
    A mind that has not been renewed by God and His Word

    I love what Berg said – we don’t trust strangers, and when God is a stranger then we don’t trust Him. How apt. If we knew Him we wouldn’t spend our time worrying at all.

    Sujata

  32. Eren Mckay  

    @Chris – I`m glad I could help.

    @Sujata – Yes. So many people suffering from anxiety have the false notion that this will continue forever and it`s just not true. You can overcome this phase and be done with it for good. Once you have gone through the pain of anxiety, you discover ways of not allowing your mind to ever go back there again. This defense mechanism must stay up at all times. We must stay alert not to be deceived into falling back into it again.

    Now that I have gone through utter spiritual hell, I know that I`ll never ever to go back there again. Hanging onto truth with all your might will keep you afloat. One doesn`t come to love truth with the passion that I have, if they have not suffered with the lies.

    God`s Word says that the devil is the father of all lies. That means that every single lie ultimately was birthed in Satan. People keep certain lies in their lives because it`s temporarily convenient for them but ultimately those lies will kill them. We need to stand for truth and hang onto it with all of our might.

    I absolutely loved what you wrote on the root of anxiety. That is absolutely true. The big problem is that truth hurts. And people don`t want to look at truth straight in the eye. They prefer to run or distort but ultimately they are only hurting themselves.
    Thank you for your insight Sujata. Very deep.
    Blessings,
    Eren

  33. sujata prakash  

    Hi Erin, thanks for replying. It’s so wonderful to share insights with someone who has suffered from anxiety and knows what it’s like. Spiritual hell is an apt way to describe it.

    Yes, truth hurts. At first I didn’t want to face up to the truth, but I found that it was even more frightening to think that the only hope for me was medication and psychiatrists. The world will tell you that you have some chemical imbalance, but what set me free was when I read that depression is a choice! And that many people who should be depressed because of low serotonin or other minerals, are not! It was then that I understood why God said in Deuteronomy 30, ‘Choose life or death, blessings or curses’

    If I may ask, how long did it take you to recover completely? My anxiety started about 6 months ago but since a month it reversed, and now I feel 95% ok. I can’t wait to reach that stage where I don’t think about it at all the whole day.

    God bless you
    Sujata

  34. joy  

    hi ive been suffering from anxiety but this site helps me a lot…and that God is our ultimate hope and healer..

  35. joy  

    been with this almost 6 months,got to have intrusive thoughts and cause me to not sleeping well it affcets my life physcally,emotionally,mentally ..but i never lose hope because i know God hears my cry…..and that he is the only hope i have…….satan attack me with real scary images and feelings which lead me to fear/anxiety…….never used medications since we cant afford much financialy but just prayers i know i could see sunshine after this storm…..pls keep me in ur prayers

  36. Eren Mckay  

    @Sujata – There are many different roots that may cause depression and also different ways to recover. Although there are certainly similarities across the board.

    I have a very close friend who has deep depression and absolutely has to take medication in order to survive. I’m not saying that she is bound to this for life.. however right now it is needed just to get through. I believe that our Lord God can heal her completely to a point where she will not need medication at all. But sometimes it’s a process. Sometimes in that process we must do what is needed just to get through.

    Sometimes therapy will greatly help someone.. But the therapist has got to be very competent and know what to do to help the person recover. Not all therapists are good as you probably know already.

    To answer your question.. my depression was triggered by a series of events- the 8 deaths in my family in a short period of time, the persecution, the robberies, and the illnesses all at once triggered it and from there on it got worse. It lasted 2 years. I am now fully recovered. It has been a long journey but I can tell you that I have absolutely no depression at all anymore.

    I have learned how NOT to allow my mind to go into a negative spiral. It’s a skill that God teaches us.
    In relation to the anxiety .. it only lasted a few months.. depression was much harder to overcome.
    Hope this helps,
    Eren Mckay

  37. Eren Mckay  

    @Joy – Yes I understand. These are satanic attacks on your spirit to paralyze you into believing fearful lies. I have gone through that but was able to fully overcome through the Word.
    Remember that when Jesus was tempted by Satan he was able to fight the enemy off with the Word of God. That is our biggest defense and attack weapon against the enemy.
    Putting your faith in God’s Word will empower you. Having fear is actually putting your faith in the devil’s lies. Don’t allow yourself to believe lies as they can only destroy you. All lies are ultimately birthed in Satan as Jesus said:

    “When he (the devil) lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies.”
    John 8:44b

    Lies tend to make a nest in our minds that Scripture calls strongholds. As believers we are called to take spiritual weapons and fight through God’s truth and prayer:

    “The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds.
    We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.”
    2 Corinthians 10:4-5

    When we put our trust in God’s promises we can remain in peace that even the bad things that happen to us are for our good.
    Also I want to give you this verse to meditate on:

    “Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.”
    Isaiah 41:10

    Here’s a song that always makes me calm and I think you will like… God will take care of you:
    (will open in new window)

    Hi Erin
    Thank you for replying.

    I have changed my mind about medication. For the past 2 weeks I have been taking some homeopathic stuff to get rid of the lingering anxiety/depression/butterflies that just didn’t seem to go away completely, and I feel a sense of mental freedom at last. I still believe that it is God who heals (of course) but it’s allright to take medical help if needed. I would definately reccomend homeopathy if one can find a good doctor. There are no side effects or addictions, at least that is what I understand.

    It also helps to keep a journal and write down all your fears as they come. Once they are down on paper they tend to evaporate fast. The homeopathic doc asked me to do that and I was surprised how much I needed it – it was like getting rid of burdens I didn’t need to carry any longer.

    @Joy – Keep strong and keep fighting. God bless you.
    best regards
    Sujata

    Hi Sujata,
    Yes- the practice of releasing the thoughts that are many times stuck in our minds is very important. I wrote about this process here in this post:
    http://www.embracinghome.com/emotional-healing-releasing-emotions/

    You can get them out through writing, through crying, through talking… It’s a huge emotional release…
    Once we get them out of our subconscious mind and onto paper we are able to visualize them clearly.
    I have even created mind maps of my thoughts so that I could see what was going on like a picture. I haven’t written yet a post about mind mapping our emotions but I plan on doing this.
    This post also helps to understand the internal thought process:
    http://www.embracinghome.com/overcoming-obstacles-failures-positive/
    The next step after that is to ask yourself if those thoughts are aligned to God’s Word. I talk about this thoroughly in this post:
    http://www.embracinghome.com/spiritual-warfare-lesson-apply/

    Keeping our minds aligned to the Truth requires humility and personal awareness of our thought life.
    I hope these posts help you Sujata..

    Blessings,
    Eren

    I have suffered from anxiety for years and never knew it until i googled it a few months ago. I recently got on meds which are helping alot…but not so much with the stress. i dont feel nervouse all the time anymore but alot still bothers me. My anxiety now stems from my relationship. I had a rocky relationship with my sons dad…we seperated for a year and a half. We are currently engaged..both have changed and grown up. Now im plagued with all these bad thought of “what ifs” i feel like im not letting God heal me up completely because of my anxiety…i want the relationship that God has in store for me but my mind gets in the way and im having a hard time controlling my thoughts and healing completely from the past. I need help in how to overcome all this nagative thinking and how to be at peace with my relationship and my mind. I trust that god can restore and heal anything…..i just need help to be at peace!

    @Cloe ~ Lack of peace comes from lack of trusting God. The Lord doesn’t want you to live in this constant state of worry. It’s not good for your emotional, spiritual, and physical health. It’s also not a good thing for your husband either. Our feelings affect those that are around us. So everytime you find your mind thinking things that aren’t true, simply don’t allow your mind to go there. Decide that you will stay grounded on God’s truth. That way you can remain in peace despite the circumstances around you.

    @Jaden ~ This is a spiritual attack on your mind. All of these thoughts are trying to make you live in fear. God does not want us to live this way. You have to fight against these thoughts since they aren’t from God. The only way to combat lies is with the Truth of God’s Word. Read this post to help you in this battle:

    Also find a good pastor to help you with counseling. You need to talk these fears out until they become very little and go away.
    Blessings always,

    Ms. Eren Mckay,

    Thank you for posting this material up! I also just love love the quote from your grandmother that you shared ” seven days without prayer makes one weak.” If you don’t mind, i’m going to have to borrow that one. I will give her credit of course.

    Continue to spread the Light & message.

    Blessing, peace, & love,
    Audri

    Hi Eren, i am saved Christian, I believe in Jesus. My dad passed away last year through an heart stroke. For then on I started having fear of my own health. This got me into anxiety. I am really struggling… I pray daily and I believe victory is on the way. I am suffering from anxiety since 6 months and due to this my blood pressure raised to 140/90. I become too anxious even to check my bp readings which in turn is shooting the readings. I started believing a lie that i too will die with a heart stroke. But I have asked forgiveness from God for trusting the lies than HIM…Give me tips how to go abt in this struggle.

    I have been going out of my mind with anxiety and insomnia. I googled if I could be healed from these things and found this site. I listened to the podcast and the sermon while I am sitting at work. During the podcast, I literally cried thanking God for allowing me to find this site. Both messages are beautiful and made me realize that I have not truly been trusting in God like I should. I want to listen to both of these sermons several times.
    Thank you so much for sharing.

    Okay so I have really bad anxiety. I read the verses and all. And I cannot watch the videos because I am limited on data usage. Last year, I lost this really special time and slowly through The Lord’s Help I have been been healed. But then I started really struggling with OCD a few months back fearing I would be punished. ( by the way I’m 13 ) and then I got over tht ( again through The Glorious Lord’s help ) And now I am like really really bad with OCD in my prayers and with God. I can not seem to stop praying. And my prayers pretty much repeat themself. And it feels like God doesn’t hear me. And while I am at it, I don’t love God the most to be honest. I probably love my mom most to be honest. And I don’t see how God can love me more than my parents and family. It feels like God is just there not truly answering ( even though He does and He has ) And I live in constant worry and fear and no peace that I will be punished. And boy oh boy that’s just getting started. I ask for help and I get help it just sometimes doesn’t feel like it.

    Last year I lost this really special pony I mean.

    I am 56 years old and started developing anxiety issues when I was in 7th grade. My dad changed his career and where he traveled a lot for his old job, he was now around a great deal. He would ridicule me, tell me things I do were stupid, told me I don’t have common sense and don’t think. The slightest thing would cause him to spend lots of time yelling at me. The pressure was intense. I lost my confidence and my self esteem, and I walked around on eggshells. I always doubted myself and all I did. I quit “completing” things for fear of failure, because I knew I was a loser and would fail anyway. Throughout all my work life and to this day, I am so anxious and worried about mistakes that I think I am losing my mind. I discover errors that I am sure I would not have made had I not been anxious. There are so many days that I wish I could win the lottery and quit work so I wouldn’t expose myself to making errors. I am always looking over my shoulder, always double and triple checking things I’ve done because I just know I messed up. This pain is so intense. I am praying several times a day.
