Anxiety has been a life long burden for me. I believe I'm Avoidant Personality too. I have been diagnosed with GAD and obsessive behavior. I was bullied a lot while young, and have basically been hiding as much as I could since, (54 now). I have a few people in my life but not many. I work late nights,(I think to avoid as much interaction with people as possible), and am looking right now at a lot of life changes coming my way, which scares me to death. I don't want to keep working late nights as the hours are a killer. I can't afford to keep up my house maintenance. I would like to sell, and move to a smaller town in the mountains that I have always loved since childhood. Still fear and anxiety are working against me. I had been going to group therapy, but they are in the mornings and it's gotten harder and harder to make the meetings due to my work hours. So I've come here for some support and hopefully inspiration to overcome my fears and make some changes to make me happy. I haven't had very much of it in my life (mostly due to the fortress walls I've built around myself). I think this site will help.
