Please enter your name and email, then fill out the form below. I feel tense, stressed, or on edge even when there is nothing immediately confronting me in the moment. My hands shake or I’m anticipating failure a good deal of the time. I can’t seem to relax as much as I would like to even when I try. I jump when a loud noise comes, even though I later find it wasn’t anything dangerous. It takes me a lot longer than other people to relax. I’m always prepared or expecting something bad to happen to me. I feel vulnerable, like many things can hurt me, even though no one in particular is trying to hurt me. My emotions always seem to be “on” or prepared to be “on,” even though I try to be calm and relaxed. I feel depressed. My feelings are intense, but I just can’t get moving. Sometimes I wish I would die. It doesn’t take much to get me going (I react to even minor events) Many times 'emotional' commercials make me cry. I wear my feelings on my sleeve in that, when I feel something, I typically express it openly. Other people tell me that I’m an emotional person. I believe I feel my emotions more intensely than others do. When someone else hurts, I frequently hurt with them. I seem to be keyed in to what others are thinking and feeling. Once I feel an emotion, it’s hard for me to stop feeling it. I can’t stop feeling anxious or depressed without great effort. My feelings frequently don’t tell me how I should best behave or what to do next. I can’t trust my gut reactions like others seem to be able to do. I wish I could eliminate my feelings, since they seem to get in my way rather than help me most of the time. I stay away from people who make me uncomfortable, even if they are not mean to me. I avoid situations and people who have hurt me in the past, even when this is difficult to do. I do whatever I can to avoid being hurt, even though I may miss opportunities to get what I want in the future. People who know me well might call me a”fraidy cat” because I won’t take chances. I’m afraid of my strong feelings. I can’t wait to solve my problems, even though I know it took me a long time for the problems to develop. I would say I’m impulsive. I do things without a lot of thinking because I want quick results. People tell me I’m impatient because I want what I want now. I’m anxious because I feel that my problems are so bad that they should be changed immediately. They are so bad that I can’t wait for my problems to be solved. I feel dread about the future. Something bad is going to happen if I’m not careful. I frequently do things without thinking them through. I feel pressure to make changes to my life.
