New to the group
« on: December 06, 2013, 10:31:11 PM »
Hello every one I am Shellie I am from Arkansas I am 33 years old I have 4 children and 3 step children. I suffer from GAD and Depression. Some days I don't know what world I will wake up to. My husband and I are having a very hard time in our marriage, he has a hard time understanding me and sometimes he is caring and at others he tells me I depend on drugs and dr to make me feel better that it is just life get over it. well I sure do wish that was the case and I could just snap out of it but that is not the case. I was told by a friend to join a support group and find friends who had the same issues that I have and maybe it would help me knowing I wasn't alone. So I look forward to meeting all of you.

Hi Shellie,

Welcome to the forum.  It is great to have you as a member.  This is a wonderful place to get advice and support from people going through similar situations.  The members here are very helpful. It is nice to know we are not alone.

Feel free to explore the forum.  There are lots of useful topics to read.  Feel free to post and ask questions.  If you have specific concerns or questions start a topic in the appropriate section to get the best feedback. There is also a chat room for members 18 years and older that you can access once you have made three meaningful posts in the forum. 

I am glad you found the forum.  I know the stress anxiety can put on a marriage.  I have been married for 15 years and have had panic for 8 of those years.  While they may try to be understanding, those who do not deal with anxiety and other disorders can never fully understand what we go through.  It is not as easy as snap out of it.  Do you go to therapy?  It sounds as though meds alone are not doing the trick.  I would recommend CBT - cognitive behavioral therapy especially focused on acceptance.  You definitely aren't alone and I hope you find the support and information you are looking for here.

Again welcome to our community.
