Excessive Anxiety That Never Ends?
Hello, I want to ask. I have the habit of checking doors that have been locked multiple times, checking items over and over, and checking work repeatedly. This habit has happened since I was around 8 years old. Now I am 17 years old. Frankly this is very disturbing to me, actually I do not want to have habits like this. I often evaluate myself, this happens because of the people around me. Especially the scope of schools where people always take care of other people’s lives in as much detail as possible. I am often afraid to make mistakes. This disturbed my life, especially when I was facing a school exam soon. I worry this will have an effect. Even though I haven’t played social media for a long time, because it often brings stress. I want to say this to my parents, but I am afraid it is considered unnatural and confused to say it. Thank you, please respond.
