Hello everyone. My name is a secret so please feel free to call me Aoba. I'm a 17 year old girl from Canada who has been dealing with anxiety her entire life.
I was diagnosed with GAD three years ago and I've been in counselling and on meds since then.
I also suffer from depression, although that is getting better.

I have always been what some would call "shy" and Ive never really fit in anywhere. I've always been incredibly afraid to do anything so unfortunately the "good years" of my life have gone to waste.
Just a few years ago I was too afraid to even leave my house.

I had never really noticed my anxiety before. I had just assumed it was a part of who I was. I didn't realize it wasn't until my Grandmother passed away when I was twelve. That's where depression decided to kick in.
I eventually lost most of my friends and I was teased quite a bit in school for random things though the most common reason was that I was a crybaby.

As the years went on I stopped noticing the depression and began to believe that that was just who I was, like I did with the anxiety.

So far, since then, I have been getting better. Aside from the added hypochondria. I've self diagnosed myself so many times it's silly.

I hope to improve how I feel although I currently have a lot on my mind.  X-X
