Hello all. I'm a 39 year old male from Minneapolis, Minnesota//U.S.A. I've been struggling with anxiety for 15 years and am just now figuring it all out. I found this site and hope to share with others in similar situations. I've been a chronic over-thinker and worrier as long as I can remember. I'm very hyper-sensitive and get worked up very quickly. I took a few of the personality tests and seem to come up INTP. I've recently been diagnosed with mild borderline personality disorder and I guess that's not a surprise. I'm also a Pisces if that has any relevance. I've had a turbulent history with relationships. I'm quick to jump into things and rarely finish them. I've been sober (drinking) for 2 years and that's a good thing. I feel that sometimes I'm thinking about things WAY more than others and that can cause a rift between myself and my peers. My father was VERY introverted and rather unlikable. I'm mostly afraid of ending up like him.... old and alone and missing out on the life I should be living. Can anybody relate ?? What do the rest of over-thinkers do to blend in ?
Thanks for reading, Aluminumfetish.
