Hello Depanx, great comments from those above.
It is always good to go in to see a psychologist with a list of items you want to talk about and/or a list of what the problems are, so all of these issues are very deep because once you start talking about one item, it may lead onto another tangent which could create a much deeper problem, that's where I'm sorry for you because it's not what you expected but really something that is troubling you.
It may take a couple of visits to know whether you feel connected to the psych, because the first session is basically getting to know each other and showing them the list.
Stress is your reaction to a trigger and is generally a short-term experience for some, and is a response to a threat in any situation, whereas anxiety, is a sustained mental health disorder that can be triggered by stress and can hang around for quite a while.
It can cause problems in all areas of being able to function.
It's certainly happened to me and I'm sure this involves many others.
