What is the line between normal and abnormal feelings or behavior? Fairly often (perhaps on a weekly basis), I became strangely conscious that I am anxious and nervous for no apparent reason. I become irritable and snappy when my family try to speak to me. I feel like I have to go off by myself; I become very "stir-crazy," and tear away from all human contact. I am 18 years old, and I should be enjoying all kinds of social activity. Instead, I am withdrawn and disinterested. I fear failure in every aspect of my life. I drive my boyfriend up the wall with my constant insecurities. I wonder if how I am feeling is a "normal" part of my changing from a child to a woman, culturally related, or innately part of who I am. If not, I wonder what I should do to prevent my insecurities and feelings of anxiety.

I know how you feel.. I'm 17, female, and when I read your posting I felt like it was describing ME. My boyfriend is also getting a little irritated with me... well, I think you're perfectly normal, but if not, we're BOTH weird. So just remember: you're not alone, and you don't fail in EVERYTHING you do... it just might seem like that. Please email me at , lets get in touch.
