My triggers for anxiety include but are not limited to ..........

  • Feeling overwhelmed about money
  • Worrying about work
  • The thought that someone is judging me or speaking badly of me
  • When I think I've said something I shouldn't
  • When I feel I haven't worked hard enough (even though my boss thinks my work is stellar most of the time and tells me so)
  • Worrying about my daydreaming
  • Worrying about being mentally ill (go figure!)
  • Not getting enough sleep
  • Any new situation I can't plan for
  • Any social sitation
  • Taking part in an important meeting and feeling I'm not going to sound knowledgeable
  • Violent films or TV programmes, sad or worrying news on TV, radio or the press
  • Body issues
  • I could go on.......................!

Ditto. Especially about the sleep- when I have too many days of insomnia, my exhaustion is made worse by my own desperate frustration and anxiety. Once I start worrying about insomnia, the insomnia gets worse. 

I'm very, very, VERY self-conscious about EVERYTHING that I do. How I look, how I talk, how I move, what I'm doing with my hands or how my hair looks at any given moment. I even sleep better when I'm alone in bed, because I think on some level I'm self-conscious about falling asleep with another person there. I can't seem to do much of anything un-self-consciously. I'm always worried that I'm annoying or inconveniencing those around me. 

When I find out a person is at all judgmental, I become easily paranoid that they're judging ME, and that they must hate me. Even if there's absolutely no indication of it whatsoever. Judgmental people kind of make my life a living hell, without really meaning to.

Anything I can't do myself tends to trigger anxiety.  Lack of sleep realy does it.  I am not totally sure what else, I don't pay much attention to what starts it up, I pay more attention to making it go away.
