Introduction
« on: February 12, 2014, 10:01:14 PM »
Hi

I thought I would introduce myself.

I am 33 and from the West Midlands in the uk.  :action-smiley-065:

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.

Hi there  :action-smiley-065:

You're in good company here. This forum is an excellent support group that can help you in your battle with anxiety. I feel that it can be defeated, there is hope. Stay strong :)
