PERFECTIONISM

If you struggle with perfectionism you may be often praised for your abilities, but being constantly anxious about details can hold you back and keep you from reaching your full potential. This perfectionism is a chronic source of stress, and may often leave you feeling that you are a failure. This constant expectation is a source of stress and contributes to unhelpful ways of coping. Perfectionism involves inappropriate levels of expectations, intangible goals (i.e. perfection), and a constant lack of satisfaction, regardless of your performance. (additional source: "When Perfect Isn't Good Enough" by Martin Antony)

pure obsessions ocd

If you struggle with Pure Obsessions Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (Pure O - OCD) you suffer with a special type of unwanted thought intrusion called obsessions. Obsessions are recurrent and persistent intrusive thoughts, images or impulses that are unwanted, personally unacceptable and cause significant distress. Even though you may try very hard to suppress the obsession or cancel out its negative effects, it continues to reoccur in an uncontrollable fashion. Often the compulsive rituals involved in soothing the distress these intrusive thoughts cause does not involve the classic ritualistic repetitive actions we often see associated with OCD (hand washing, knocking, counting, etc.) but can involve checking and rechecking with yourself, analyzing and reanalyzing yourself, and repetitively and cyclicly seeking reassurance from others.  (additional sources: AnxietyBC and IntrusiveThoughts.org)

post traumatic stress

Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is a disorder that can develop after an individual has experienced, witnessed or been repeatedly exposed to a major trauma. If you have PTSD, along with many other possible symptoms, you may experience panic attacks, which are sudden feelings of fear or worry that something bad is about to happen. You may also become extremely upset or feel very anxious whenever you are confronted with a person, place, situation, or conversation that reminds you of the trauma. You may also feel on guard all the time. PTSD symptoms usually start soon after the traumatic event, but they may not happen until months or years later. They also may come and go over many years. (additional sources: AnxietyBC and MyHealth.Alberta)

social anxiety

Social anxiety is one of the most common forms of anxiety. If you experience social anxiety you may tend to feel quite nervous or uncomfortable in social situations. You may feel  very concerned that you will do something embarrassing or humiliating, or that others will think badly of you. As a result you may likely feel very self-conscious and constantly "on stage." If you experience social anxiety it can occur in any situation in which you and at least 1 other person are present. You may experience your social anxiety in either performance situations (i.e., public speaking, participating in classes or meetings, eating in front of others, etc.) and/or interpersonal interactions (i.e., meeting new people, talking to friends or coworkers, dating, being assertive, etc.).
