Another newbie
« on: January 19, 2014, 10:34:06 PM »
Hi Everyone!

I'm new here, obviously. I'm 26 and have been suffering with anxiety since I was a toddler. School phobia set in when I was 7 and more phobias started popping up when I was 11, which is when they put me on medicine.

My main problem is anxiety with agoraphobia, panic attacks, depression, specific phobias, and SEVERE separation anxiety from my parents. I'm never alone. Ever.

I'm hardly functioning right now, but I'm hoping things will get better which you can read about in the post I made on the medication board.

I hope having a community of other anxiety sufferers will help me feel less alone, and therefore less scared.

Talk to you all soon!
