    I'm suffering from depression related anxiety and need some help on how to make it a little less worse with baseball season coming along.I can't do baseball with half a breath.

    Hi :smile:

    Are you required to play baseball? Or is it because others you know are playing baseball & you dont feel included? (I'll admit I am HORRIBLE at baseball..something about a solid object being tossed around at high speeds doesnt seem smart nor safe to me!)

    I know when my anxiety hits I try listening to music and/or finding something to occupy me (ie. hobbie, reading, school work, going out w/ friends).

    Baseball is my life I know everything about it,but mostly because I gave up football because anxiety and if I try to quit baseball my parents might find out my secret

    Does the anxiety have to do w/ winning or performing well?

    Then I dont think you should give up :smile: I think what you need is to find a way to cope with the anxiety. When you find a way to cope you'll be happy you didnt stop doing what you loved.
    I ride horses as both a career & passion & anxiety still plagues me everytime I enter the show ring, & even during practice.But with the right method I found a way to work past it. It probably will never go away but you can beat it! You just need to step back & figure a way to cope.
