Hello! I am a 23 yr old female and A new member of anxiety zone and thought that I should say a bit about myself. I have visited this site quite a few times in the past but have never had the guts to actually sign up until now! Well I think I have probably had anxiety since I was a kid but being young I didn't really know what I was experiencing.
I had my first real, terrifying bone crushing, panic attack when I was 19 yrs old. I was smoking pot and shortly after I shot up from my love seat unable to breath or swallow. I quickly woke my older sister up and told her I thought I was dying and she sort of calmed me down and I finally was able to relax for the night. After that I would say I had my first bout of real anxiety which lasted about 2 very tiring weeks.
Ever since that first panic attack things seemed to get worse. First starting with a bad case of hypochondria. Following with some OCD/ pure o issues. I have good months and bad months. Good days and bad days. As of right now I'm feeling pretty shitty..can I say shitty? Lol. But I Am working on managing my anxiety and getting back to feeling better! And that's why I decided to join in on this little community. Hoping to lend a helping hand to those of you in need of a little advise, tips or a good laugh. I can def. bring humor to the anxiety party:). And I hope to find the same for myself which I'm sure I will since I have several times.
I'm excited to get started! Thanks for reading!
