I'll start off by saying that, had the site administrator not dictated that an introduction be made or access to certain areas of the site be denied , I would not be posting at all. I'm in my late 20s, suffered from paralyzing anxiety/attention issues/depression my entire life, have tried a wide variety of medications/treatments/psychotherapy and am not nearly satisfied with my current state of function.
At a certain point in my life, facing the world was simply too difficult to deal with and I created for myself a worldview that was palatable to me. It took about 13 years to go down this rabbit's hole and come out of it to be here, now. Something has to change in my life because I can't go on with my current level of mental functioning. That's all.
