I thought I would introduce myself.
I am 33 and from the West Midlands in the uk.
I am married with no children (yet) and I have suffered with Anxiety since I was 18 years old.
I have times that it is worse than others and times where I think I can overcome it but as you all can probably understand it always finds a new way to claw you back to square one.
My health anxiety started about ten years ago and it got to the point where I was terrified I was going to drop dead every single day. I went to the doctors and they sent me for counselling which helped a bit.
I live quite an isolated life at the moment which doesn't help and so talking to people on places like this may help me.
I want to beat this thing, I truly do, but I am almost at the point where I have had anxiety for longer than I have been without it and I am not even sure who I am without this thing hanging over me but I would like to find out.
Anxiety has held me back from doing almost everything I have ever wanted to do and I am tired of it winning.
