My name is Liz and I live in Northern California.
I started having panic attacks and developed social anxiety during my junior year of high school. I had gone on independent study a few months earlier so staying indoors wasn't much of an issue.
My general anxiety feels like it's gotten worse over the years. I always think that there is something wrong with me even though in the back of my mind I know that I'm probably wrong.
On the bright side, my social anxiety has improved a lot and I've been panic attack free for a long time.
I ran across this place while browsing and thought I'd check it out. I think it would be nice to read things from people who also suffer with anxiety. My family and friends don't seem to understand what I'm going through most of the time and are frustrated with me for not being able to "get over it".
