Anxiety.. (Completely unrelated to hedgehogs)

I guess I've just been having a lot of trouble with this lately and I thought I'd rant to some people who I like.. :D
I'm eighteen and I've been diagnosed with panic disorder and generalized anxiety disorder for about four years. Lately I've been sooo miserable, feeling sick all the time, and unable to sleep because of panic attacks and anxiety. I want to scream! Every time I have an exam in college it's like I become physically ill because I have so much anxiety/panic over it. I had three exams this week and right now I feel absolutely horrendous.

To bring it back to hedgehogs, snuggling with baby Rocko does appear to alleviate these symptoms. :lol:

Thank you for listening to my rant even though it's the most off topic thing ever. :roll:

I hope you can find something that helps you reduce your stress and anxiety. I've been having depression/anxiety issues since I was 10, and was officially diagnosed at 14. All through my life it's been my pets who have made the biggest difference for me, no matter what they always make me feel better. It's too bad you can't take a pet to an exam, being able to pat a hedgie might help keep the pressure from getting to be too much. ^_^
